Boek Mijn Slovenië for local providers:
The main goals of Mijn Slovenië are inspiration, giving practical information and advising Dutch and Belgian travellers about Slovenia as a holiday destination. In 2017 we had 90.000 unique visitors, in 2018 we have 13.000 visitors per month. Almost every Dutch family going to Slovenia visits our website and also many Belgians. To make organizing holidays for them even easier, we created Boek Mijn Slovenië.
Boek Mijn Slovenië is a selection of SPECIAL, AUTHENTIC accommodations, things to see and do, transfers and packages. Your offer can be a part of this. Here you can see existing offers.
Why joining us?
- With our promotion, we are trying to attract guests outside of high season.
- We encourage them to visit the real Slovenia and not just top 3 destinations and attractions.
- By offering easy to book extra activities at the destination, we are trying to increase the in-destination spenditure.
- We take good care of our guests and providers - listen to the needs, being flexible and a reliable partner.
Boek Mijn Slovenië offers a selection of accommodations, things to see and do, transportation and packages. This selection is designed to attract a special profile of traveller.
Our goal is not only to attract more Dutch and Belgian travellers to Slovenia, but to attract a different target group.
These are curious, intelligent, educated and aware travellers who are ready to pay more for the quality and extraordinary experience. They appreciate nature, authenticity and locals. They like to go to places where things are not yet discovered. They want to feel the culture of Slovenia, not only in high season but also out of season. Average and especially below average travel services are not good enough for them.
But they also don't have time. So, we help them with advice and making a selection suitable for them, plus we create for each guest a custom-made travel plan for their holidays in Slovenia. We know what they want and we know Slovenia. That's the reason they book with us.
Boek Mijn Slovenië represents a modern digital platform with services that can be instantly booked. We make the process travellers go through before the holiday smooth. And once they step into Slovenia, it's on you to make them happy and spread the word about it.
We offer you 2 different fee types. This is the percentage of the price of your offer that we keep for our work and to invest in optimisation of the website and promotion. You can choose your preferred fee in the registration process.
We work with brutto prices (so the price minus our fee is what you, the provider, receive). This is important if you have your prices published on your website. Guests check if the prices on your website and in case there are lower, they will not book through us. Of course, we deserve a payment for our work.
- If you give us 12 % fee: this is the basic fee, but it doesn't mean that we will not take you seriously as a partner
- If you give us 15 % fee: we will include you more often in our promotional materials and campaigns
How to decide how much to give us? Mostly, our providers decide to give us first 12 % and then when we prove as a good partner, they give us more.
To attract our target group we created several requirements that the offer and its management has to fulfill. If you and your offer fit the requirements, you are welcome to use Boek Mijn Slovenië as a channel for bookings. These are:
- Your offer fits into one of the following categories:
// things to see and do
// travel packages
- Your offer is special and has a wow effect, like for example:
// it has a story
// it is an experience
// it is sustainable
// it is one of a kind
// the architecture or equipment is unusual
// it is authentic
// it has a long history
// it is on a special place
- Your offer can't be described as mass tourism or average.
- Your offer has to be interesting for our target group as explained in the concept.
- Most of the reviews about your offer on other platforms are positive.
- Your offer is in the first place about quality and not the price.
- You are transparent about minuses of your offer so that our travellers are aware about it before they book.
- You are willing to synchronise the availability calendars and work with instant booking (not on request).
- You agree with the Terms & Conditions.
We are always open to discuss if you don’t fully fullfill the requirements or if you are new.
Currently the bookings are on request. When we want to book your service for our guests, we will check your availability somehow (you will tell us how in the registration form). But nothing is confirmed until you say so.
And even then you still have 24h of time to cancel the booking.
The guest pays us at the reservation 50 % deposit. Then 1 month before arrival he has to pay the remaining amount.
So 1 month before the arrival you issue us the invoice and we pay before the guest arrives. If you prefer to receive also the deposit (therefore 2 invoices), it's not a problem.
The guest pays the tourist tax at the arrival on the spot.
How do you get paid? Issue us an invoice, you can send it per email or post:
- Amount: your price minus our fee. (we work with brutto prices)
- Mijn Slovenië fee: describe it as 'discount' or 'agency price' and not fee to avoid paying Slovenian taxes (we pay the taxes over our fee in the Netherlands, so it would not make sense to tax the same thing two times).
- Value added tax: invoice is without value added tax (VAT/BTW/DDV) due to international rules in EU - if a company in one EU country issues an invoice to another company in EU, this invoice has no VAT
- Tourist tax: don't include it in the invoice, this is national tourist tax that you charge your guests when they arrive
- Date of issue: whatever you like, but the best is 1 month before arrival
- Due date: date of the guest's arrival
- Boek Mijn Slovenië data:
- name of the company: Mooie besede
- address: Koningin Wilhelminalaan 134, 2274AM Voorburg

Our IT specialists are working on the automation of payments, as well. That means that every time we will receive a booking, you will receive your money automatically. We will notify you when this option is ready for setup.
Registration will take you 10 minutes.
Some more explanations
FROM ARTICLE 8: PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.3 After the Traveller has made a full payment for the service to Mooie Besede, Mooie Besede will transfer the payment to the Provider. The payment made to the Provider will be the reservation fee paid by the Traveller, minus the fee Mooie Besede is entitled to. The fee for Mooie Besede will be a percentage of the total reservation fee including the BTW (VAT). The percentage will be determined in a separate agreement between Mooie Besede and the Provider.
FROM ARTICLE 9: CANCELLATION & FORCE MAJEURE
9.1 Once a Traveller has made a reservation with the Provider via Boek Mijn Slovenië, the Provider is not allowed to cancel this reservation, except in Special conditions or if Equal service is provided.
9.2 Special conditions are proven death in family, serious illness or serious illness in family, natural disaster or political instability in the country of service. In such conditions the cancellation is accepted. In this case, the Provider returns the reservation amount to the Traveller if the money transfer already occurred.
9.3 Equal service provided means that the Provider arranges for the Traveller a service, carried out by a third party, but of equal or better value, equal or better quality and at the same travel destination. If any extra costs occur, the Provider is obligated to pay. The Provider is also obligated to pay for any costs that the Traveller or Mooie besede had because of this situation (phone costs, transfer costs etc.). Providing Equal service is recommended in case of an overbooking.
9.4 For any other reason than the Special conditions stated in 9.2 and if Equal service from 9.3 is not provided, the cancellation is not allowed. In case the cancellation still happens with a not acceptable reason, the provider gets a warning. The second time this happens, the Provider’s offers are removed from Boek Mijn Slovenië.
9.5 In any case, a cancellation can be made by sending an email (in English language) to email address email@example.com with CANCELLATION as subject and all the details described in the email body. The cancellation is not confirmed until the host receives a reply with a confirmation.
9.6 In case the Provider does cancel a reservation without the Special conditions from 9.2 and if Equal service from 9.3 is not provided, the Provider owes the Traveller and Mooie Besede the full cost of booking.
9.7 In case a Traveller cancels a reservation with the Provider which was made via Mooie Besede, Mooie Besede or the Traveller are never liable for any loss of income or other damages the Provider might suffer. However, the following reimbursements will be made to the Provider in case the Traveller cancels a reservation::
- cancellation until the 42nd calendar day (excluding) before the day of arrival: 50 % of the Provider’s service price;
- cancellation from the 42nd calendar day till 1 month before the day of arrival: 75% of the Provider’s service price;
- cancellations from 1 month before (including) the day of arrival or later: the complete Provider’s service price.
FROM ARTICLE 11: RETENTION OF TITLE
11.1 The content of Boek Mijn Slovenië, including although not solely: texts, images, lay-out, photos, sound material, format, software, brands and domains, are the property of Mooie Besede and are protected by copyright and intellectual and industrial legal right of possession consisting under the applicable law. Users of Boek Mijn Slovenië are not allowed to multiply and/or distribute Boek Mijn Slovenië or parts of Mooie Besede website, unless Mooie Besede has explicitly given permission to do so. This rule applies also to the Dutch text of the Provider’s offer.
Why is everything in English and not in Slovene language?
Our team is international, so it's easier to keep everything in one language. Besides that it would be more expensive to translate your info from Slovene to Dutch than it is from English to Dutch.
Do I have to pay anything to be part of Boek Mijn Slovenië?
Depends which fee you decide for. If you choose the Exclusive fee, you don't have to pay anything, it's all based on percentage from sales. That means that if you get bookings, Boek Mijn Slovenië keeps a percentage. That's it.
If you choose smaller fees, then you pay small amount for the translation.
How much is the translation cost?
Find the answer in the tab about fees higher up on this page.
Can I use the translated text also on my or any other website?
No, this is not allowed, because we could get a penalty from Google.
Can I change my mind and decide for another fee?
You can always decide to upgrade the fee. In this case we will return you 50 % of the overpaid amount for the translation cost (overpaid amount is the difference between the past fee and the fee you want).
Downgrading your fee is only possible before the team of Boek Mijn Slovenië starts processing your offer - therefore after step 1 it is still possible, after that not anymore.
What is Automatic Availability?
Lean about it in the separate tab just a bit higher up on this page. Basically it means that we don't accept bookings on request, but only instant bookings, so we have to connect your availability calendars between our platform and your primary calendar.
How many different things can I offer on Boek Mijn Slovenië?
In theory unlimited. But we do evaluate every offer and we decide if it fits the requirements and our portfolio. It is possible we turn down some or all of your offers. If we turn down some of your extra offers that you added at the end of the registration process (Additional step), we will return you the money you paid for the translation.
I have two similar offers, for example 2 rooms. Can I apply them as 1 offer or do I have to apply the second one in the Additional step?
You can apply them as 1 offer only in case you would answer all the questions in the registration process the same for both of them and if you don't see the difference on the photos. Otherwise you have to apply the second offer in the Additional step.
What is my username to access my account?
Your username is your email address.
What if I forget my password?
Check the second email you received from Boek Mijn Slovenië, it is written there. But you can also reset it.
How do I get my money?
Read about it in the Administration and payments tab above on this page.

Tina Batistuta, the founder
"It's all about love. I followed my heart and moved to the Netherlands to start a life with my Dutch partner. But I also wanted to stay in touch with my beloved country, sLOVEnia. It was logical to continue with the career I had in Slovenia, marketing of Slovenia as a travel destination. Opportunities became a business and the website mijnslovenie.com a big part of it. Soon there came a mission to grow and share also the experiences of Croatia where I have spent summer holidays so many times. I have so much to tell about both, Slovenia and Croatia, and there are people who want to hear about it."
