Who is the white label booking engine for?
Hotels and Hotel Chains
The white label booking engine can be used directly by hotels and all types of accommodation providers. This article focuses on a very specific target market, that are specialized potential users of such a white label solution. The following is a comprehensive list of it’s potential users:
PMS (Property Management System)
Hotel software companies, also called property management systems or software with the abbreviation PMS, are mostly interested in CultBooking’s white label booking engine. A PMS is a front-office software used by receptions and front desks to register on and off-line bookings as they happen in real-time. Around the world, there are many PMS providers. Here is a complete list on the Siteminder website: https://www.siteminder.com/integrations/property-management-systems/
Of course, there are many more than those mentioned in the list above. So potentially, all PMS companies would need a booking engine. Why use the reservation software from a specialized company such as CultBooking and not build its own booking engine?
There are many PMS companies that already have their own booking engine that is very old or not fully optimized for high conversions and top performance. The core aim of the PMS is to concentrate on their system and make the hotel software work at it’s best, and make ongoing improvements and enhancements. Therefore a PMS firm does not have time to concentrate on a second product, the booking button, or the booking engine and many prefer to leave this part to a specialized partner and 3rd party external provider.
No need to regularly develop or update solutions.
On the same line of ideas, CultBooking’s – booking engine -, does not specialize nor concentrate on creating or maintaining a PMS, but utilizes 3rd party providers and partners. Here is a complete list of the already connected PMS of CultBooking: https://www.cultbooking.com/en/developers-connect/#hotel-software
Here we have the same situation as with PMS companies. A channel manager may have its own booking engine, but it can be difficult and strenuous to run and maintain two parallel products at the same time. CultBooking is already integrated with over 17 channel managers, here is a complete list: https://www.cultbooking.com/en/developers-connect/#channel-managers
CultBooking is completely independent of specific branding images and colors, so you can put your own logo on it and have your clients impressed that you have created the world’s greatest booking engine! Moreover, there are weekly updates and ongoing development to ensure we have created best in class and best performing reservation software in the market. In just the last 2 years, our technology has continually advanced and evolved in various ways such as, allowing the user to make faster reservations, additional new features like promotional codes inside the URL, specific links for each room type, promotional prices and much more.
Representation Companies and Partners
Resellers and consultants
Resellers are companies that work as partners and consultants. They are already in the hospitality business with an existing portfolio of products and aim to add booking engine technology as a white-label, because there is a high demand for reservation software for hotel websites. For example, a consultant from Slovenia has in his portfolio his main product; which is a revenue management software as he works in revenue management consulting. Apart from RMS, he also resells a booking engine, channel manager, and PMS. So he provides an all-in-one solution branded by him but using different providers for all his products.
A sturdy and robust booking engine product enriches your brand value.
Digital Marketing Agencies that already work on websites for hotels, are in need of a white label reservations software and booking engine. The already existing plugins for WordPress or Wix website builder are not specialized enough and do not provide connections to channel managers and PMS.
CultBooking is already connected with the main PMS and Channel Managers. If a new PMS or channel manager partner or hotel, approaches CultBooking, then the CultBooking reservations software is ready to be integrated with the software of your choice, free of charge.
Furthermore, CultBooking has an open API and XML connection, along with support for technical integration with 3rd party applications. Any software company in need of a white label booking engine can work with CultBooking in a strong partnership to achieve the best result, which otherwise alone often proves too expensive or time-consuming to accomplish.
Just to give an idea, CultBooking is already 20 years old in the past, sold as a package with CultSwitch channel manager. 2 years ago, CultBooking became an independent company with its own website, branding, marketing, content, and communication strategy. Since the split, the product has evolved so much that it’s almost not even recognizable anymore.
Here is how the engine looked like in the past:
Here is how it looks now, the new hotel booking engine from CultBooking:

Partner programs and types
1. White Label Partner Program
CultBooking is already working with various partners that are using the white label solution. This program is for you if:
- Invoices will be done by your company and brand
This means, it will be only one main invoice from your company to the hotel. Maybe you already provide them services as hotel software (PMS). Now you will have another invoice or add another section in the invoice for online distribution: (booking engine and channel manager).
CultBooking will invoice you as a partner and not the hotel property directly. This way the hotel will only work with one main provider and make payments in the same way they usually do.
- Buy rates – fixed price for upselling
CultBooking will offer you a fixed price, also called buy rates. For example, you will receive a certain agreed price per month and you may then upsell for whatever price you like. So you will decide the profit that you want to make. This will also give you a good negotiation margin and flexibility based on each hotel.
Another benefit is that the price is not based on the number of rooms. So each and every property can afford the booking engine services and will be able to have the booking button on their website
- Customer support
First level support will be done by you and your company’s team members. So the hotel has you as main person of contact. CultBooking has designed the admin dashboard and backend extranet, in such a way that first level support is easy to do. Also, you will get full access to the CultBooking team – partner support.
