Home- Mission

FASTBOOKING’s e-commerce solutions will help your hotel increase profit through a direct sales strategy.

14 years ago, we celebrated our first direct booking. An Australian tourist named Brent, willing to sleep at hotel Waldorf Madeleine in June 2000. A hotel we are still proud to serve. During those years, FASTBOOKING’s teams grew a passion: helping you develop a direct strategy, and reduce your dependency on online travel agents.

Today, FASTBOOKING is more passionate about your direct sales than ever.

Think Direct is more than a formula. It’s a rallying rule that drives all our actions, all our strategies, all our devotion. It means thinking about you.



Digital native problem solvers

The Internet is like deep space: it’s huge, and survival is a hard task. Our mission is to help you make the most of the opportunitites at hand in this space : create, grow, prosper.

Help you choose the relevant information within the information overload. Help you decide wether to go mobile, social, or local, or help you do all three at the same time.

14 years of Research & Development, both technological and human. 14 years of cloud-based, digital native solutions. 14 years of measureable achievements.

We would like you to take advantage of them.
