Online booking

Hello guys, can you recommend a good, reasonably priced booking system for boat trips. Would be keen to hear what some of you use.

Cheers, Ruari

What do you do? Are all trips the same length? How many boats? How many locations do you operate from. All these things would alternate the best solution.

Just a single boat , 1 location, 3 different trips, per person price on each trip under 20
Looking for something simple, had a look at booking last year, looked very professional but the 250 setup fee was harsh, something in between would be good with low commission.

Hi James,

Thanks for your reply, Ive trialled many systems now and I short listed 3 they were ibooking, bookeo and Pauls one from above post.

Ive decided to go with Pauls system as its a full customised system purpose built for boat trip operators and once you buy it its yours rather than monthly fees.

P.s top 3 merchant accounts for value and rates were - worldpay, streamline and cardsave.

Thanks for all the advice guys.

Ruari

Does anyone's booking system have the functionality to work with Groupon voucher bookings?
