Suited for: all accommodation, especially if you want to display multiple rates per room, apartment or property, if you want to upsell extras and encourage return guests to book directly

  • Custom sales psychology messaging
  • Faster for return guests
  • Multiple rates or promotions

SmartBE is controlled from a panel within elina. You can edit the fonts, colours, text, messaging and add languages. It comes set up in a default mode and our team will match your brand logo, colours and an exact or close font for you. This is a basket based booking engine, so bookers can add or remove rooms, or apartments as well as going back or forwards when booking.


Suited for: vacation rentals, cottages, lodges and chalets. Try it for yourself here. Also serviced apartments who want to show the best rate for the search dates of the guest and want to show all properties visually on screen in tiles

  • Shows properties in tiles
  • Extensive use of filters
  • Built in map search

The AirBE can be dropped into your website so it is seamless. You can choose an all in EasyPro website with elina, or include it in a website you are building using our guide. It is built using APIs, so the search results show live pricing, availability and property details within your website. This maximizes the value Google finds in your website for search, by including the booking engine in your website, rather than being separate.

Property tiles can be combined with techniques like lazy loading, to increase first impression speed for Google.

Suited for: boutique, or small to medium hotels who offer more than just rooms, so either extras, or table reservations. Including Resdiary integration.

  • Resdiary integration
  • Large room images
  • Was / now pricing

The BoutiqueBE uses as ecommerce basket approach, showing clearly to the booker what they have selected. You can choose to charge or not charge the guest during the process once completing. You can add languages and manage the content. The larger images really help to show off your rooms.
