Do you rent out one or more holiday homes to anglers? Then we are your partner! Bookafishingcabin.com is the first booking platform that is specialized in holiday homes for fishermen, enabling guests to book directly with the host. This platform is part of the successful Dutch company Booka Rentals BV, which enables thousands of visitors to book a unique place to stay every year. This company is co-founded by Juul Steyn.
Juul is both an angler who traveled the world in pursuit of catching big fishes, as well as an experienced host of multiple B&B’s in Amsterdam, welcoming anglers from all around the globe. He has used his experience to build a platform that meets, or even exceeds, the expectations of both guests and hosts. Below we will explain how Bookafishingcabin.com will improve your business.

1) A TOTAL FEE OF ONLY 10% IN THE FIRST YEAR
To welcome you aboard and prove ourselves to you we have a special offer: the first 12 months we only charge a 10% fee! From the second year onward our fee is very competitive too: no more than 15%.
2) LISTING IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE FREE
The service fee is only charged once a booking is paid and confirmed. So as long as no booking has been made, there are no costs involved in being advertised on Bookafishingcabin.com.
On top of that, we do not require any form of exclusivity. So you can be listed on both Bookafishingcabin.com, as well as on other platforms. And you can leave us any time - no strings attached.
3) GET IN TOUCH WITH MORE GUESTS
Our core business is to reach a specific audience: traveling anglers. We know exactly how to get you in touch with your target group. If you are listed on Bookafishingcabin.com, we will make sure that you are found by anglers who want a comfortable place to stay, good fishing conditions and the right amenities.
We have learned how to grow fast and serve our clients in the best way possible, amongst others, with our previous successful project: Bookahouseboat.com. This is by now the leading platform for houseboat rentals around the world, welcoming thousands of happy guests every year (4,9 out of 5 stars on Google).
4) OFFER SUPERB CUSTOMER CARE
It is safe to say that hospitality and sport fishing is in our blood - as well as IT-knowledge. Fishing and online stuff such as Google, marketing and IT go very well together in our company: we're hooked! Therefore we can provide superb customer care to both hosts and guests. Our system is super user-friendly, making it very easy for guests to get in touch with you and book your place.
If you, or your guests, have any questions, we are always there to help. Our service desk is open 24/7 via email, and during working hours also by phone and chat in order to respond to you the quickest way possible.
5) WE ARE THE COOLEST BOOKING PLATFORM FOR ANGLERS
We believe that a fishing holiday should be fun from the moment you start planning until you get back home again. We will play a leading role in the planning and booking process. Not only by providing the best fishing cabins and great customer care, but also by offering the coolest features on our platform.
One of these features is the unique ‘Online Fish Finder’ that helps anglers to plan their next fishing holiday. Just fill out the fish species that you want to catch, and we show you a selection of the most interesting rentals where you can make this dream come true. This is not only fun, but it will certainly increase the chance that anglers will book your holiday home. It will be a completely new way of planning fishing holidays which you don’t want to miss out on!
We have super cool new features planned for the future to ensure that anglers will stay involved with us and book with you.
6) BE THE MOST ANGLER FRIENDLY BOOKING PLATFORM
We know what anglers want and we use this knowledge to offer the most angler friendly booking platform. Our system is designed to give the best overview possible of each destination. What does the holiday home look like, what services are available, which fishing techniques can best be applied and what fishing boats are for rent?
This way, guests can book their next fishing holiday with confidence. After all: fishing is very much about information and trust. By sharing the right information, guests know what to book, during which period and what to expect during their vacation.
7) SAVE TIME AND REDUCE YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE BURDEN
Running a holiday destination for anglers - no matter if it is just one fishing cabin or a large fishing resort - always involves a lot of work. And the last thing you want is to spend a lot of time on administration, right? Our job is to save time and reduce the administrative burden of our hosts. We do this by offering time-saving features:
- Safe and secure booking system: we collect the payments for you so you don’t have to send invoices, nor check if payments are made
- Guests can prepay a booking: you only have to confirm this booking, that’s all
- Instant booking (optional): guests can book directly, without awaiting your approval
- Your contact details and address are shared with the guest automatically once a booking is confirmed
- We payout one day after the check-in: no action from your side needed
- Super easy communication with guests via both chat and email
- The calendar is automatically updated if a booking is made
- We offer easy calendar synchronization, so you don’t have to update your calendar(s) manually
- We provide a clear overview of all your earnings (for example, for your tax return)
8) OFFER 100% SAFE AND SECURE PAYMENT
All the payments are processed by our payment service provider Adyen.com. This way we ensure a safe and secure payment process for both our guests and hosts. We are proud to offer (almost) all payment methods available worldwide, making it very easy and efficient to pay for a booking.
9) REDUCE YOUR ADVERTISING COSTS
Our strength is to get maximum attention for your fishing destination. We do this by bringing your holiday home for fishermen directly to the attention of your target group by advertising through Google Adwords, Facebook and Instagram, among other things. So you will not only be shown on Bookafishingcabin.com, but we also promote your business in other ways. This way you will save you time and money on marketing yourself. The reason we do so this is actually quite simple: the more bookings you get through us, the happier you are, the happier we are. We like to be happy ;-)
10) PERSONAL APPROACH
Our team is dedicated to deliver the best service on each aspect of our business: get you in touch with lots of guests, help you with any questions you may have and ensure a smooth working platform. A personal approach while doing so is of paramount importance. Therefore we designate one contact person that will handle your requests. This way we can guarantee the best customer care possible.
