Here's what you need to do right now. Backpackers Of Africa (Instant World Booking) works closely with hostels and hotels to develop strategies for growth and specific actions that will immediately increase your profit margin. Evaluate the current external services you pay for, particularly software and online booking services. Know that many online travel agencies (OTAs) and software providers have dramatically increased prices in recent years. And, they're not considerate of your location or particular situation. But now, we've entered a different era. At Instant World Booking, one of our mottoes for the last 2 decades has been that 'Technology should always reduce your costs'. So, here's what we will offer you:
Perfect for your website, social media, and more.
This is not the typical free version offered by some companies. This is our full-service, Booking Engine, completely free to you. Don't wait! This offer is only available for a limited time.
The IWBmob Booking Engine works better on mobile devices and is easy for users. And, payments processing and deposits are possible. Immediately increase the profitability of your website.
Virtually necessary for every hostel and accommodation business: The Facebook 'Book now' button.
Without it, you give up one of the most important channels for direct bookings. With it, your reservations and profit margin increase instantly. We will set this up for you at no cost, usually in just a few hours.
