Deter Dine and Dash with CardsSafe!

Don’t risk customers making off without payment. Hold their bank cards securely while they run a tab with CardsSafe.  

The hospitality industry has been plagued with dine-and-dash since the cost-of-living crisis and the pinch on everyone's wallet. A few bad apples leaving a bar, pub or restaurant without paying can cost the venue hundreds if not thousands of pounds every year. 

The UK hospitality industry continues to face many challenges, with high energy costs and a staffing shortage. Bar, restaurant, and pub managers shouldn't worry about dine-and-dash, too. The good news is that CardsSafe is a genuine deterrent for walkouts. Too many dine-and-dash cases are being reported, but a simple, affordable solution exists.

CardsSafe is a proven and genuine deterrent for walkouts and chargebacks. It helps staff upsell and increases trust between the venue and customers. This is why over 5000 brands utilise the system, including Young's pubs, Hilton Hotels, Lord's Cricket Ground, and many independent restaurants and bars. 

Trond Rornes, Director of CardsSafe Ltd., told us: “This year, there has been a significant increase in enquiries relating to dine-and-dash. Most recently, a chain restaurant business with 43 venues took on our CardsSafe system because of far too many cases of customers making off without payment. We offer a solution to a national problem.”

The wireless CardsSafe units can sit discreetly behind the bar and work alongside existing POS. In addition, the system does not capture data, so it never breaches GDPR. The tab-keeping system is straightforward to use, so it requires minimal training and helps venues and customers to ensure secure tab-keeping. 

At just £9.95* + VAT per unit per month rental, CardsSafe really pays for itself. 

x1 £120 dine & dash = CardsSafe unit rental for 1 YEAR!

CardsSafe is cost-effective – it pays for itself – just one £120 walkout or a chargeback is the cost of one unit with ten draws per year. In addition, each hire comes with customer service troubleshooting, free replacement keys, and additional units that can be added at any time.

Deborah Steel, the Director of the Deers Hut in Liphook, Hampshire, has used CardsSafe for over ten years inside and in her sizeable and hugely popular outdoor facilities. She said, “The CardsSafe system is great for servicing customers who enjoy our outside areas.”

The question is, can you afford not to have CardsSafe as a part of your business?
