All-in-one booking platform for river and canal cruise operators

Our software and hardware solutions offer a seamless booking experience for river and canal cruise operators and their passengers. We help you customise the booking journey to meet customer expectations, manage capacity limits to avoid overbooking, and minimise queues with multiple booking slots throughout the day. You’re free to deliver unforgettable river and canal cruises, and your passengers can relax and soak up the scenery

Manage queues and control your crowds

High passenger numbers over peak dates can pose operational challenges for frontline staff on the jetty, and create a poor cruise experience for your passengers. Manage queues and avoid overbooking with convenient and flexible options, to help ensure passengers enjoy their cruise to the full

  • Effortlessly monitor demand and control pricing, to follow seasonal variability over peak dates and quieter periods
  • Manage an efficient check-in process and minimise queues with QR scanners for rapid ticket validation
