Whether there are just a few currencies popular with your travelers or you want to offer each and every option, the multicurrency addon is ready to handle any scenario. You can add unlimited currencies to the currency converter widget and allow guests to choose their local ones.

For each currency, you can choose the number of decimal points and the currency icon position.

Set Currency Exchange RatesSet Currency Exchange Rates

For each added currency, you need to provide the current exchange rate. The WordPress currency converter is so far optimized only for manual currency rate exchange settings, so you might need to update rates on the dashboard from time to time. It’s a matter of a few clicks, though.

Display Converter Widget in the Menu or Widget Zones

Website visitors are used to looking for currency switchers in the header of footer website sections. The Hotel Booking Multicurrency addon allows you to place the converter in just the right places.

You are free to choose where to display your widget, in the widget section or site navigation menus. The multi currency widget will inherit styling from your WordPress theme no matter which location you choose.

Currency Switcher for Hotel Booking – FAQ

Will guests pay in the currency they chose?

No, at checkout travelers still pay in default currency set in your Hotel Booking default currency settings. So that the currency a guest switched to is converted back to the default one only when they pay. Guests will be notified about it on the checkout page.

Can currency exchange rates change automatically?

Not at the moment. So far, you need to enter them manually when using the Multicurrency plugin for Hotel Booking. Since they stay fixed and the currency rates usually change, you’ll need to update rates manually, too, if required. We plan to add more automation in the future, though.

Does it support geo-detect?

No, the widget provided by the WordPress currency addon doesn’t detect user countries automatically to display prices in the needed currencies. Travelers need to switch prices manually.

  • First version (1.0.0) too limited 1/ 5stars

    Honestly, I would have expected more as it is an extension that has been in demand for a very long time. At the moment I don’t feel like suggesting it but certainly I’ll change my review when it’s more mature and complete.

  • Long-awaited option 5/ 5stars

    Thank you for implementing feature requests, it took some time, but finally, the possibility to select local currencies is available for my guests.

  • Finally, this widget is out! 5/ 5stars

    This functionality is a must-have for hotels hosting mostly international guests, Looking forward to the new Hotel Booking addons!

    1. FYI:
      1) when you switch the currency in the “Booking Confirmation” page, the page reload empty, the previous booking selection is gone;
      2) please move the administration of the rates in a dedicated section, because now it’s not very convenient to tell the client to go to “Accomodations -> settings -> extensions -> Multi-Currency”, in addition to the fact that he might also deactivate the licence or make other changes on other extensions by mistake;
      3) Give us the possibility to put the currency switcher as shortcode, so we can place it wherever we want on the pages;
      4) Give us the possibility to change the text “EUR, USD, etc.” and/or to use images or font awesome icons.
      5) Please create some connection with an online rate currencies so we can set automatically them, otherwise the risk is that if the client does not update the rates for a while, he may find accommodations booked at the wrong price.

      1. Hi Michele,
        Thank you for your feedback. We will keep your suggestions in mind however the checkout page (booking confirmation) should be loaded correctly even after the currency switch. Could you please check it again and let us know if it works for you?

        1. Hi John… I confirm you that if I switch the currency in the “booking confirmation” page, the booking disappears.
          I don’t know if it’s important, but on the only website where I use ‘Hotel Booking’ I have the same problem when I change language (I use WPML as plugin for the translation).
          Last but not least, I have a SiteGround hosting and I use Wp Rocket for the cache because your plugin is not compatible with SG’s dynamic cache.
          If you want to test by your side, see the url in the ticket “#39248”.

          1. In the website that you find in the ticket you can test only the bug with “language switch” (ITA-ENG) on the “booking confirmation” page, I haven’t installed the “multi-currency” because without “automatic rates” it’s impossibile for me to offer to the client.

            1. Hi Michele, Yes, we agree that the checkout page is blank after the switch of the language since language is selected during earlier steps, as a rule.
              As for currency switcher so it reloads the booking confirmation page without clearing the information on the page. All the information remains after switching the currency on the checkout page. Make sure, you use the Hotel Booking 3.9.14+ version on your site.

    2. Automatic rates and geo ip detection is critical. I cannot believe you guys have not added this yet! I simply cannot get this plugin without these features.

      Also, how about allowing us to specify a different price for each currency? For example a local price in my country and then an international price per external country.

      If you allow product integration into woocommerce the way you did for the paygate, I could use WOOCS plugin on my product. It allows for auto rate update, different prices per country and geo ip detection.
