Wait Application

🇳🇱 Nederlandse vertaling

The Wait application gives guests access to magazines, books and audiobooks during their stay (via their own phone and/or tablet, mainly in Dutch). Guests pay a one-off fee for access to Wait and it is only valid during their stay. In this article we explain how to install it for your own administration(s).
