Booking engine

An integrated, risk-free solution for you and your customers.


  • Our booking engine is directly connected with our PMS. Any changes in room availability (triggered by the PMS user or the connected channels) updates immediately the booking engine room inventory. No need to worry about updating your rooms manually and all the time.
  • Payments for the bookings can be done in a variety of ways. Your customers can pay in cash, via bank transfer, via Paypal or with credit card through a payment processing organization that they trust. The customers feel safe to give their credit card information in a recognized payment page and you, the hotelier, don't need to worry about credit card fraud or forgetting to manually charge the customer's credit card through your credit card machine.

0% booking commission*
0% credit card commission**

Accept reservations and
keep the money to yourself.

* We do not charge commissions for bookings made through our booking engine, we only charge a one-time setup fee and an annual fee (see Pricing section). This could be a huge benefit for your property!

** By signing up to a selected payment processor that we have integrated to the booking engine, you will not pay commissions for the first 50.000 EUR (or equivalent in another currency) that you make.

Normally, payment providers charge a fee around 2-3,5% of the transaction, depending on the total turnover and the country where the property is based.

More payment methods = More bookings

Doesn't it feel wrong when you are given only one option to pay when you buy online or eat at a restaurant? So do your (potential) customers feel too. Increase your chances for direct bookings through the offering of different payment options. You can have different payment options for domestic/national customers and different for international ones.

Apart from the off-line payment options offered (pay in cash during check-in/out and bank transfer deposit), these payment gateways are offered free of charge:

Not seeing your preferred payment gateway? Ask us, and we could implement it for you!

We will charge you nothing for the integration of the payment gateway to our booking engine. However, note that each payment gateway has its own pricing policy, charging variable commissions per customer and depending on the country where the property is based. This is something that is negotiated directly with you and the financial institution.

Verifying, pre-authorizing and charging customer credit cards securely

  • We offer you a secure way to obtain customer credit cards and pre-authorize or charge them at a later stage. In the accommodation sector it is very typical that a customer will make a booking today and stay at a property 6 months later or more. As a hotelier, you will possibly need to pre-authorize the credit card a few days prior to arrival to verify once again the validity of the card, or even charge the card in the event of no show, or when a non-refundable reservation is cancelled.
  • Based on the booking engine setup, the customers may have to enter their credit card information to guarantee a reservation. During this process, their credit card is also verified by performing a $0 or $1 transaction, which is automatically voided. In this away you avoid the hassle of verifying a credit card yourself manually.
  • Credit card information is directly stored and encrypted in a certified payment processor right at the booking stage. You can access a secure page where you can pre-authorize or charge a credit card of a customer, based on the terms and conditions that were agreed during booking.
  • For security reasons you won't be able to get the full credit card number. But when you can verify, pre-authorize and charge a credit card without having its number, does it matter anymore?
  • The secure storage of credit card information is offered by a specific payment gateway without any charge. The gateway only charges you a commission when you charge a specific card.

Easy setup, adapted to your identity

The whole booking engine setup is done through the user-friendly hoteliga PMS environment that you are already familiar with. And what's more, many things like room types and prices are already there, so you don't need to re-enter it again.

Of course, if you need to give a different price list or room allotment to the booking engine, that is always a possible option!

With the assisted setup (included in the setup fee), you will have a mobile friendly and visually appealing layout.

We will also give you the tools to for your web developer to integrate a search form into your existing website. If you don't have a website, you can still use directly our booking engine and the Facebook app.
