What are the benefits of Instant Book for captains?

    Instant Book is a feature that allows customers to instantly book a trip with you for any open date in your calendar. When Instant Book is enabled, you don't need to accept trip requests, as they are automatically accepted by the system if the requested date is set as available.

    What are the benefits of Instant Book?

    • It helps you rank higher and boosts your visibility
    • Your listing will be given a bolt sign that helps it stand out
    • You don't have to bother manually confirming each request
    • Customers prefer listings with Instant Book due to instant confirmation
    • It's completely free of charge

    Enabling Instant Book can improve your chances of being booked because customers are more likely to book a trip when they can get confirmation instantly.

    Please note that, if you cancel three Instant Book trips (excluding for bad weather or extenuating circumstances), the feature will be automatically turned off. You can turn it back on, but if you cancel again (a fourth time), the feature will be disabled for one year.
