Checkfront accommodates tour bookings as well as accommodation, events, rentals and other schedule-based services. This might give flexibility if you service these different areas, but it also means a one-size-fits-all solution. Rezdy is tailor-made specifically for tour and activity businesses and our software reflects this with industry-relevant features and functionalities.

If you have an existing website then you’ll probably be looking to add a booking engine to it using a widget; functionality that both Rezdy and Checkfront offer. If you don’t have a website for your tours or activities yet, then you can build one with both platforms – Checkfront charges an extra $25 per month to do so. With Rezdy, a new website is included in your plan for no extra cost and takes just one click to set up, already beautifully optimized for mobile and search engines.
