Prepaid Card Solutions

COLLECT DUE BILLS IN ADVANCE! Or don’t. Your choice!


Dear Rental Property Owner,
Fed up of receiving bills, bills, and even bigger bills, eating away at your residual income.
In particular, rising electricity bills?

Electricity bills silently and surely amount to one of the largest running expenses you face.

Are you ever worried about your guests leaving heaters, air-conditioners, lighting, on all day and night? Some guests are considerate, others reason that since they are paying, why should they care? 

Or maybe, you have been wishing to fit air-conditioning, or place heaters in every room, to make your accommodation more attractive and desirable to enquirers, thus receiving more bookings, but you are concerned about massive electricity bills eating away at your profits?

You need never again worry about your electricity bills!
The solution to all your concerns is now available to you. You will be able to offer your clients’ all the comfort they ask for. You need never again worry about your electricity bills – in fact, you will not mind at all if your guests leave air-conditioning or heating units on 24hrs a day during their stay! Impossible? No, this is very possible... with a cheaply fitted electricity card device. Read on for more...

How does this work?

Just like a mobile phone, this appliance will accept pre-paid cards, which only cost you a few cents each, covering the actual cost of the card. You however sell the cards to your guests at the printed face value (EUR 10, EUR 20 or other values by special order). They insert the card/s into the appliance, which will then supply them with a number of electrical units (KwH), as per the adjustment you choose. As the electricity gets consumed, your guests will eventually need to purchase further cards from you to assure that their supply is not cut off.

The cards can only be purchased from us, by you, it is not possible for your guests to obtain cards directly from us or any other sources.

Please read this important notice

How is this appliance installed?
The device is very easily installed in the apartment/house in more than one way.

You will of course still receive Enemalta’s bills; this device does not interfere in any way with Enemalta’s metering or billing. The difference now is that you will have covered and controlled expenses.

Some property owners still prefer to set an all-inclusive price for their accommodation, yet still fit in this solution, and supply guests with sufficient number of cards to cover reasonable usage during the duration of their stay, any extra cards required being charged for. Even if guests never exceed the limit and are not charged any extra, the fact that they are made aware of their electricity consumption, results in more careful usage of this resource - so you still benefit greatly with reduced bills. This reduction has been reported by several property owners. Less wastage also respects the environment.

You are always onto a winner, whatever the option.
Peace of mind, more control, no surprise bills, and a more transparent deal for your guests. More predictable expenses also means that you can offer better calculated accommodation rates, when necessary, which makes you more competitive. You will know that the winter week bargain rate you are promoting will not need to take into consideration possibly high heating costs, and your guests will know that they only need to pay for the consumption they use. So it’s a great deal all around – and now is the time to get one of these installed!

What does it cost?
Well we could say nothing really... since this solution will pay for itself in no time at all... but here are the figures:

RFID appliances: 

The RFID contactless device is a 21st Century upgrade of the immensely popular CPM5188A ‘Electrocard’ version which was designed in the early 1990’s. The same manufacturer has now re-designed this very popular prepayment model into a more compact and modern design that makes use of contactless card technology.
