15 YEARS OF HISTORY

    DEDICATED TO ONLINE TICKETING AND BOOKING

    iBooking was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 2003. We started out building custom online solutions for all types of business in the hospitality niche. Our first product, iBooking Hotel, was created to allow independent hotels to take control of their online bookings, directly from their own web site. That core principle persists to this today. We allow business owners to operate sophisticated online booking and ticketing solutions, with little to no upfront investment, and just a web browser.

    A CUSTOM SOLUTION FOR TERRAVISION

    iBooking were approached by European Coach Operator, Terravision Srl. They had 4 weeks to get up and running with a online ticketing solution to service high frequency departures from UK and Italian airports. iBooking modified an existing platform for venue ticketing, and delivered the solution on time and within budget. iBooking Ticket was born. We helped Terravision process more than 10m Euros in bookings in the first 2 years.

    ENTERING THE TOUR MARKET

    We took our evolving platform for coach and bus operators, and adapted to suit the needs of ambitious sightseeing tour operators. We worked closely with Scotland's leading sightseeing tour business, Timberbush Tours, and created a solution that put them at the forefront of online tour booking in their local market. Other tour businesses followed. We are proud to still work with leading tour businesses including Discover Scotland Tours.

    NAKED AMBITION WINS OVER NAKEDBUS OF NEW ZEALAND

    Our reputation led us to New Zealand startup, NakedBus. Their ambition was to transform bus travel in New Zealand with a custom solution that connected regional bus operators, to sell excess inventory via an entirely virtual online brand. We started from scratch to design and development the platform. It quickly became a hit, allowing travellers to book low cost tickets, using a yield based pricing engine, and to travel the length of the country, connecting multiple operators into a seamless booking and travel experience. NakedBus was acquired in 2016 by the Stagecoach company.

    MAKING IT EASY FOR EASYBUS

    easyBus are a recognisable brand in the UK and Europe, being part of the easy family of companies. Online since 2004, easyBus needed a new booking engine to help them sell millions of tickets a year in the UK and throughout Europe. Selling tickets on their own routes, as well as being a marketing partners for national operators such as National Express, iBooking had just 5 weeks to replace a legacy solution that had been in place for 10 years. We met the challenge with a brand new booking engine operating across desktop and mobile devices, processing thousands of ticket sales daily in both GBP and Euros.
