Quite simply, Instant World Booking offers more customization for your website, flexibility with customer deposits and payments, and easier setup. And importantly, we can provide a cheaper solution than any competing provider. We guarantee it. We'll even install it for you if you don't have web support.
New for 2018! Our new design, dubbed IWBmob, is a responsive design that offers users of mobile devices the best experience possible. This new design offers major benefits to your customers. For users of our new booking engine, the experience surpasses almost any modern booking site.
More than 50% of commercially available booking engines don't work consistently across all device types. IWBmob does. We offer a mobile-first design, which means that your booking engine will respond flexibly to all types of computers and devices, with an emphasis on mobile users. After all, more than 25% of worldwide travel bookings are made on mobile devices. And, mobile bookings are increasing at a rate of 20% or more each year in many countries. With IWBmob, you have the confidence that you are maximizing reservations from all users.

The IWB Booking Engine can be displayed on your website in one of two ways (or both). Either method is introduced with just a single line of code. You have full control over the location and appearance of your booking engine. With IWBmob, your booking engine will render perfectly on any device or screen size. You'll have total confidence that your customers can book quickly with you, before moving on to search elsewhere.
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Each demo represents a hostel homepage. These demos illustrate the power of a truly integrated booking engine on your website.
Power tip: Select one of our innovative website designs for your own hotel website, or contact us about website design services.

Not available from other providers, this feature increases the security of your reservations with guaranteed deposit payments. Never worry again about late cancellations or guests that don't show up. This feature guarantees you will still be paid for these cancelled reservations.
Only Instant World Booking allows you to choose any deposit amount you wish to collect from your customers, up to 100%. Higher deposits increase the security of your reservations. And, credit cards are verified for every booking. Compare with other providers who limit deposits to 10%.
If you choose instant collection of deposits upon confirmation, you want to receive your funds conveniently. We offer multiple payment methods that make it easier to receive your funds, in virtually any region of the world.
To capture more reservations, you need to target a large and diverse customer base. Your booking engine includes multilingual and multi-currency capability. This allow customers to see prices and payments in their own currency, and confirm their reservation in their own language. This increases trust and reduces the possibility of confusion over costs.
Facebook is very important for backpacker hostels, budget hotels, and independent accommodation. With over 2 billion active monthly users, and growing by 15-20% each year, it should be important to you also. Get a Facebook 'book now' button, and link it to your IWB Booking Engine. If you need help, we can even install it for you.
Unlike some providers, Instant World Booking doesn't require you to use our front desk systems, channel manager, or other property management services. We just want you to increase profits and save money by using our booking engine. Instant World Booking works very well with third party systems. You may still use all your favorite services and providers.
For all our booking engine options, there are no setup costs, no payments, and no obligation. Use it when you want.
