Hidden Extras...

"Hidden Extras" is a phrase that most people do not like to hear. At BookitZone we're proud of ours... 

We thought that you might like to take a closer look and discover the "hidden extras" that we offer as an inclusive part of our service and which are often overlooked by organisers when choosing a website to provide an online entry service for their events...

There's quite a lot.  Simply click 'Show more' under each point if you would like to find out more information.

Great Features for Organisers



Fully Customisable

There's hardly anything that our website can't do. Whatever you need to know from the entrant, we can ask it to ensure you get exactly the data you need from each participant. Want to know their shoe size? No problem!

You can build your own frequently asked questions page to provide your potential customers with a wealth of information about your event. You also have the ability to upload files such as route maps, sponsor forms, videos, images, spreadsheets, and Garmin GPX files, whatever you need - we've pretty much got it covered.

Our roots are in running events - but that doesn't mean we can't handle other types of events. We've listed cycling, athletics, club membership subscriptions and even a scuba diving exhibition! If your event isn't running - chances are we can still help.

BookitZone has been designed around you. We offer youfull control over your own event. You can log on and make changes to your event any time, day or night.

Need to add a sponsor logo? Update the event description? Close entries? Alter your event limit? Download the very latest entry file? You can do it all yourself (or ask us and we'll be happy to do it for you if you wish).


100% Free

You can list your event at BookitZone completely free of charge. 100% of the entrance fee is paid to you as the organiser. Any entry you receive will not cost you a penny - you really do have nothing to lose.

We charge a small booking fee on top of your entry fee to cover our costs. We do our best to keep our fees as low as possible.

You can either create your event directly on the website yourself, or ask us and we can do it for you - we would be happy to help.


Automatic Opening & Holding Pages

If you like, we can host a 'Coming Soon' holding page for your event with a countdown timer to the event opening.


Help & Advice

We have many years experience helping organisers with their events. If you have any questions - just ask!


Waiting List Feature

If your event sells out, we'll operate a virtual waiting list for your event. Interested parties can join the waiting list, and if additional places are released, we will email everybody on the waiting list to tell them there are places available.
