    The only extra product besides accommodation that we do offer at our site https://chillisimo.de/en/ are day trips.

    Currently, the customer can choose two variants of our day trips as services, but after the booking one of our team has to contact our customers to agree on a date.

    Can we somehow add the possibility to book day trips with Hotel Booking? It will also need to use a calendar to show available dates and prevent overbooking.

    Hi Emanuel,

    It is not possible to add the booking system inside the Checkout page, in order to rent day trips.
    You may rent them separately from your apartments if needed. In this way, you would need to create day trips as accommodation types and rent them.
    In case you need your guests to purchase day trips on the Hotel Booking Checkout page when making a reservation, we can only offer you to create day trips as services.

    Best Regards,
    M. Evans

    Hello, we have tried this but the result is not straightforward at all.
    We have created our day tour as accommodation type and created a maximum booking time rule with the lowest setting possible, 1 night.

    But on the booking page for our day tour, the guest has to choose “check-in date” and “check-out date” which would be really confusing, because the day trip will happen only on one day. The price breakdown will contain a price for “1 night”, it will be called “accommodation” which does not fit…

    So after all, this won’t work. We would need a simpler form, where the customer just clicks one day on the calendar, selects the number of persons and then can pay the price.

    We wish it could be done with Hotel Booking, but as it does not seem like it can, we’ll try out a simple Stripe Payments plugin.

    Maybe you can think about offering a widget to create flexible other types of bookings and payments with Hotel Booking – could be a day tour, museum trip, parking lot, sauna reservation, a private beach chair etc.

    Hello Emanuel,

    Yes, indeed you will need to select the checkout date, as currently the Hotel Booking offers overnight bookings only. Some of our users add a note to their guests, that in order to book a trip for specific date, they should select the next day as the checkout date.

    We will take your request into consideration and in case there are more similar requests from other users, we will consider adding this feature in one of the plugin future updates.

    Regards,
    Andre
