    Deliver true hospitality

    Warm welcomes without the wait

    With Planet guests can check-in online, on the go, or via the app. And it’s all linked to your PMS.


    So they won’t have to queue at reception. Bank details are already saved at booking, so they can upgrade their stay, and spend with ease at your hotel.

    Wave goodbye to tricky checkouts

    Planet’s hospitality software lets your guests leave at their leisure.


    As their payment details are stored on file, any missed charges can be picked up later. Guests can check out on the app, and be sent a digital receipt. This gives you another chance to retarget guests, maintain relationships and encourage them to return.

    Make serving simple

    Planet’s cloud-based hotel payments solutions empower your people to delight your guests.


    If you switch to Planet, we’ll get your people up-to-speed fast. So they can do what they do best - unleashing true hospitality and giving your guests a great time. 

    Make the right impression before check in

    When guests book online it links straight to your PMS.


    Once the booking is confirmed, all guest data is populated, payment is taken using the guest's preferred payment method, confirmation is sent, and everything is captured on the PMS.
