"My favorite thing is that there's no card reader required - I can accept payment anywhere with my phone."
"Tab is designed for the tourism industry, which is very important to a small resort such as Granada."
"We like the selfie feature. It gives our staff a chance to chat with people."
"I would recommend Tab for the ease of enrolment, and the professional and responsive staff."
"It's an easy, secure system, with plenty of support."
"The ability for guests to pre-book with Tab, using Advance Bookings, gives security and trust."
"Tab has been a very practical solution for us to accept credit card payments from all over the world and receive payment in US dollars, in a safe and easy-to-use fashion."
"Tab makes bookings and payments for our business much easier. Due to our remote location, we are able to collect advance payments and decrease no-shows."
"Tab has been incredibly useful from day 1 as it took a long time to set up systems with the banks, as we were a startup. Also the ability to take prepayments from anyone anywhere in the world is very convenient."
"Because I am located on a very small island, it was difficult to get this credit card machine from the ordinary bank in here… so I was so happy to find out about Tab so the people can pay with their credit cards at last…!"
"We have been using Tab since we started our first lodge in Nicaragua in 2013 and it has always been a great partnership. Tab makes it very easy to receive the deposits required to confirm a reservation, we use it most to take payments as its commission is lower that the local banks and their customer service is exceptional."
"Tab helps us to provide a secured and personalized credit card payment solution for direct bookings."
"It's the first online payment gateway that we've used, it's really user-friendly and clients love it."
"We were wondering how we can manage our online payments. My friend introduced me to Tab Travel. To be honest, we couldn't do better. Tab is an amazing platform that makes life easier for us and our customers. Simple and transparent payments, safe online gateway, payouts every week, lower fees than other providers. Our customers love it."
"Collecting advance and instant credit card payments in Lao currency (LAK) with free payouts to Lao bank accounts! A game changer!"
"I absolutely love advance bookings! It's really good to have the confidence that a guest has already paid for a stay, alongside options for free cancellations and easy refunds."
"We really like Tab’s dashboard where managing transactions, issuing refunds, and seeing reports is very clear. We would get lost tracking transactions with our previous system. Tab is hostel-owner friendly, it literally paints a picture of each transaction."
"Tab was a turning point in our business, since it allowed us to charge in foreign currencies and allowed us all our reservations to be in order."
"Tab has helped me with the most difficult thing ... charging credit cards because sometimes tourists don’t want to carry cash!"
"It's really really easy to take bookings in advance. That means more sales for me and that helps me grow!"
"Tab is easy to use. Guests like the security and convenience of processing the charge from their own phone."
"Tab helps us to ease the payment process for both our guests and ourselves. We don't have to deal with loads of cash anymore (in Uganda you easily walk with a 10cm pile of notes in your hand!). "
"Being off grid and solar powered, we can have issues with power and traditional credit card equipment. Because TAB works off our manager's iPhone and our front reception iPad we can use cellular if the power goes out and still complete the transaction. It definitely gives our guests peace of mind to know that they have this option."
"Tab has made us legit! In a place this far out, cash has been the only way to do business as the banks just haven't caught up. But most of our clients from abroad prefer to pay with their cards."
"When we started the business, we had a lot of no-shows. We were not able to charge clients' credit cards in advance - we could only charge the cards once they had arrived. So Tab helped us a lot as we can charge the customer a deposit in advance - we have no no-shows any more!"
"Being able to accept credit cards is huge for us because we are so remote. The nearest ATM is an 1.5 boat ride plus a 30 minute drive away. So many people come to the area unprepared for that and now clients don't have to worry that they didn't bring enough cash to do the amazing activities we offer."
"Tab has been a crucial partner from the beginning, allowing us to take card payments even though we are located in a remote area of the Natural Reserve. We have been able to take deposits in advance to secure reservations, and allow card payments for final bills, and customers are very happy they don't have to go to the cash machine, or carry large amounts of cash around."
"El Hostelito is different because of all the little details we have put in to make it feel like a home for all of our travellers."
"Tab has helped us and made our life easier by allowing our guests to pay by credit cards. For 5 years we could only accept cash. Since we live in a very remote, rustic location - credit card merchants are not available here."
"Tab has enabled us to not have such large amount go through Paypal. It's been nice getting to work with a business right at the beginning. We met the Founders in March 2015 and hopefully have helped to promote them around Guatemala!"
"Before Tab I was only able to accept a limited number of credit cards - Tab has changed that. I am so pleased that I can use Tab with my clients. It's fast, easy and I always get a smile when I ask for the selfie, that always surprises people!"
"It's been amazing how easy Tab is to work with. It takes no more than 4 minutes to send an advance booking link and for the customer to pay (it's perfect if they're in a rush!). Customers also like Tab as it gives them the chance to pay for their tour immediately! Tab is a way better option and lots of tourists prefer it."
"Many travellers in Guatemala don’t want to carry cash, those ones can come here now because they can pay with their cards!"
