BOOK IN supports two host options: BOOK IN Hosts and BOOK IN Partners. Both hosts and partners have access to the FREE online reservation system, outlined below, and our credit card processing facility. Partners are our preferred suppliers and receive extra benefits.

Go As You Please Packages

BOOK IN offers guests two travel options: Pre-booked or Go as you please.
Pre-booked accomodation is recommended for guests during the peak tourism season, or where they wish to make the most of limited time or when they have strong prefences for particular locations or hosts.
Go as you please travel works on a voucher or pass system. The guest purchases a pass or vouchers from their travel agent. While on holiday, guests simply select a property from our BOOK IN Directory then contact the host directly to make the booking. Guests are required to advise hosts that payment is by pass or voucher at the time of booking. Our Go as you please option offers a flexible travel alternative for guests who do not wish to be tied to a pre-booked itinerary.
All BOOK IN Partners accept bookings from guests with BOOK IN Passes and Vouchers (when they have vacancies).
