New mobi Booking Screens

The new version of our single property mobi booking screens are very, very close to public release (mere days away). For a sneak preview visit demo.ibexplus.com on your mobile device.

Please note that the initial release will not include extras - if this is imperative we recommend that you remain with the current mobile booking screen (which includes extras) until the second release which will follow shortly thereafter.
