  • Hotel Booking Plugin

    Just started to use this product for a Vacation Rental Business.
    It seems to work very well and is a well thought out easily customisable booking solution. Would like to see a few more options for the property search page, in particular an option for the customer to be able to search by property category. Otherwise this is a great product.

  • Hotel Booking Plugin

    One of the best solution for hotels!

  • Great Flexible Plugin and support

    I bought MotoPress Plugin for a client’s holiday retreat which features several types of accommodation and it’s v easy to use and the support is great. One thing which would be good is a more flexible layout for laying out each accommodation page but apart from that v good!

  • Great customer support

    I just recently bought this plugin to set up a site for my rental property. Clear manual made it very easy, with little previous experience in WordPress ,I managed to get my booking page up and running in few days. Any issued is delt with by customer support in record time.Recommend Motopress to anyone looking for their own booking site

  • Outstanding Support

    I became a member a few days ago. I needed to enter accomodation types in bulk, which is not a feature of MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin.

    I contacted support and their response came a few hours later. We had a few back and forth discussions over email and , the next day, Support came with a creative work around.

    Their response time, the quality of support, and their attitude are awesome.

  • Good product and great support

    One of better booking plugins for WP. I would personally prefer better multilingual possibilities especially with polylang and some more flexibility with the booking confirmation and accommodation units pages. However works flawless and in case support is needed motopress team is fast to reply and provide support.

  • Good but lack of flexibility

    The plugin is easy to use and the tutorial is clear. However we are disappointed about the use of coupons : there is no way to add a specific amount, only % are available. We were expecting to sell vouchers of XX EUR but now we have to change our commercial policy… And obviously that is not what you want when buying a WP plugin.

    1. Hi there, i’m thinking about purchasing your plugin. I do have a few questions beforehand which I hope you can answer for me:

      – When I look at the demo (Villagio) and I want to book a villa, I have to enter my full name, email and number, even before I get to the checkout page (where I have to do the exact same thing). Why are you asking twice about the same information?

      – We also sell giftcards to our customers, is this also possible with this plugin? And how does it work, can we generate a code which stands for a specific amount of money?

      – Can I allow instant bookings?

      I hope to hear from you. Many thanks!

      1. Hi Marga,
        – There is used Hotel Booking WooCommerce Payments addon on Villagio demo site. It is not included in theme by default. This addon integrates payment gateways from WooCommerce. We’re also working on this question currently – to move the entered information to Checkout page of WooCommerce not to enter it twice. So it would be available in the next version of plugin.
        – There is option to add coupon codes of percentage type. Do you mean this?
        – Could you please clarify what you men under ‘instant booking’? Do you mean adding booking from the back-end?

    2. Hello,

      I am wondering if we offer the booking calendar Chinese translation, thank you!
      Thank you for the Plugin.

      1. Hi,
        You can see the level of plugin translation here. Yoou may also register there and help translating it. Could you specify what exactly calendar you need to be translated for Chinese?

    3. Hello !

      My client sells tours and has very specific needs for displaying the several tours’ information. So I created a website with a custom page for each tour. Still, he would like to display availabilities with a calendar and allow users to pay a deposit for the tours. I have already tried several plugin but none of them seem to be fully functionnal.

      So, if I buy this plugin of yours, will I be able to display ONLY the calendar (and eventually booking form) on a page separate from the “room” page ? The room page can exist besides the tour page.

      I do not know if my question is clear enough. Please ask me if you need a little more information in order to answer me.

      Thanks for your help.

      1. Hi Esparon,
        There is no way to display the booking calendars separately not on the accommodation pages. However, these calendars are available in the booking form (added with [mphb_availability id=”your-accommodation-id”] ), when the customers click on the check-in and check-out dates. These forms can be added to any page and the unavailable dates are crossed-out there.
        We would still advise to test this functionality in one of our demos to make sure that it fits your needs, since the plugin was designed for property rental.

    4. I have another question. If I run 2 different sites with this plugin and I add respective iCal urls to these sites. Do they automatically synchronize if automatic synchronization is on?
      Thank you.

        1. I can’t seem to get this to work. I made a booking on one site and even if I click “Sync all external calendars” it doesn’t add the new booking to the other site. Could I get any help with this?

          1. Hi Liudas,
            Make sure you have linked the calendars with each other by going to Bookings>Sync Calendars. Feel free to watch this video guide

            Also do not hesitate to email us in case you need our assistance.

      1. Hi Omar,
        Yes, it is possible now to add new bookings at the back-end since version 2.7.0 in Premium version of plugin.

        1. Thanks for the reply, Im see the option in the pro version demo, now I have two questions, how can I block rooms? and If its possible to add services to an already booked and confirmed reservation? for example if a guest stays for 5 days and in the 3rd day it needs some service like laundry, I already create this services and its cost, but how can I add this service to the reservation?

          1. Hi Omar,
            Yes, it is possible to block certain rooms for certain period and you can do this by going to Dashboard>Bookings>Booking Rules.
            Unfortunately it is not possible to order services after the accommodation is booked. We’ll keep this feature in mind for further plugin development. As a workaround you can try to sell services on your site using third party plugin for selling like WooCommerce, etc.

      1. Hi,
        It is possible to change currency however there is no possibility to use multiple currencies at the same time. So there can be selected 1 currency per website only.

    5. It seems that when I block date on airbnb/booking then sync in motopress it import and blocks that date. But if I then open in OTAs and sync again in motopress stays blocked. If I then put cancel for that booking in motopress and blok again that same date in OTAs it wont block again (Skipped. Event with such UID already exists in booking) even if I put it in trash. it blocks again only if I delete it from trash.
      I hope I tested OK and I am not sure am I doing something wrong but this could be a problem if there is canceled booking and then booking again for the same date. Can you check this please?
      Also, it would be great that you could block dates directly in booking calendar section rather than in booking rules section. I know it is complicated but it is only a suggestion.

      1. Hi Ante,
        Thank you for describing your situation. We have submitted a request for you to check synchronization. Please check you email and reply us back. Thank you also for your feedback and suggestions.

    6. Hi,
      My client is migrating from an old custom booking system to WordPress. Is there a way to move the reservations from one system to the other since I can’t create a new reservation in the WordPress control panel?

      1. Hi Liudas,
        If your old system supports export option in iCal format you can export bookings and import it to our plugin. Also it is possible to block accommodations for certain dates if your old system does not support iCal import/export.

    7. Hi there,
      I have some questions..
      Our client supposed to crate Word press website based on avaibook service, using this theme:
      http://preview.themeforest.net/item/casamia-property-rental-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/20992167?_ga=2.126053640.420783988.1524764900-410087755.1523714448
      He needs to sync it with airbnb and booking.com

      When we looked closely at the theme and avaibook, we figure out, that theme doesn’t manage booking flow and avaibook doesn’t work well for his needs. So we need to find other solution.

      We have found your plugin, and it looks like exactly what we want. But we still have doubts.
      Looks like we need to change the theme to be able to manage booking ( for example this one can work: https://listify-demos.astoundify.com/rentals/ ) or we can still use your plugin on the CasaMia (the theme we have) and with your plugin, there is a possibility to manage booking? If we will use CasaMia, is it possible to create other user/admin, who will manage his properties (This option is provided by Listify but not in CasaMia)..

      If we will use CasaMia, how we will implement calendars, and will it looks nice, like a theme?

      Do you provide your theme in the pack with the plugin? Can we check these themes?
      Thank you
      Nat

      1. Hi Nat,
        Hotel Booking plugin is compatible with all WordPress themes as it inherits theme design. You can try using Hotel Booking plugin with current theme you have in order to check how it will look like. As for the user so you will be able to create a new user role and set up its permissions using third party plugin (our support team will assist you with this).
        Hotel Booking plugin is used at 2 themes at them moment: Oceanica and Villagio. You can test both templates at our Live Demo.

        1. Hi, thank you for the reply. There is one more question, that i have =)
          Is it possible to manage prices for channels differently? I mean, if the price shown on the website is 40€, on the booking.com it will be 45€ (because of there fee from the booking.com). So, the property will have a different price because of that. Is it possible to manage? or maybe saving all prices equal, booking.com can add their fee to the price of the appartment… Did you meet this kind of issue?

          thank you
          Nat

          1. Hi Nat,
            We sync with external booking platform through the ical system. This system only synchronizes the availability of properties. It does not transfer any rates or payment data. So there won’t be a problem if the prices on booking com differ from the ones on your website.

    8. Hi
      Few queries before consider buying it
      1. Can it be used for multiple hotels under the same website?
      2. How many number of rooms can be added and iCal synchronized?
      3. Is SMS possible similar to email notification?
      4. Is it possible to change the word Category , Tag, etc.
      5. What is the difference between Accommodation Types and Accommodations from a hotel website perspective.
      Thanks and Regards

      1. 1. It is possible just to use Categories as different Hotels to filter the accommodation types. But category is not available as search parameter yet so all accommodation types will be shown in search results page.
        2. There is no limit for accommodations to be synchronized.
        3. You can send notifications by email only.
        4. Plugin translations are editable.
        5. Accommodation type is a type of room like ‘Double Room’ and accommodations are real number of room of this type. Accommodations defines availability of accommodation type.

        1. Thank you for responding;
          3. Can we use any third party plugin for SMS notification? or do you undertake any custom development/features
          4. We fear you have misunderstood our query. Please refer answer of question No. 1. Our query was can we change the word Category to Hotel?

          and another question is;
          6. Is report generation available? On your website, we didn’t find any.

          1. – Unfortunately we did not have a chance to test it with plugin that allows to send SMS instead of email. However the plugin is ready for development and for integration with other services so feel free to extend its functionality. Thank you.
            – If you simply need to change ‘Category’ into ‘Hotel’ then it is possible by editing plugin translation. We’ll assist you with it if you need our help.
            – There is not option for reports yet. However we collect feedback on this so you can share your thoughts with us – what information you need in report. Maybe you have some example.

            1. Hi
              Apologies for the delay as we were working with some other plugin and now almost decided to go with Motopress. Please answer the following;

              1. Reporting means provision to export booking details (booking orders) in excel format or so (Guest details, from and to dates, other booking details, etc.)

              2. From a single room page, is it possible to book/reserve/check availability by using the search form (check availability form on right side)? While we were checking the demo frontend, it displays the whole search results.

              3. We found that on email, Price Breakdown option is unavailable and hope it can be incorporated by some means.

              4. Is it possible to print the bill/receipt of booking from the dashboard so that the hotel management need not to depend on another billing software?

              5. We wish to have a custom WordPress dashboard for our client and came across few plugins to change the look and feel of admin dashboard, what’s your opinion about this?

              Thanks and Regards

              Comtech

            2. Hi,
              1. At the moment there is no option to import Bookings within Hotel Booking plugin. We’ve added your request to our features list.
              2. You can enable ‘Skip Search Results’ option in plugin settings to check availability of current room without living its page.
              3. We have this feature in our to-do list so I guess it will be available in one of the next updates.
              4. Currently you can print the booking while editing it on the back-end only. We have added your request to our list of features. Thank you.
              5. It is up to you to modify dashboard styles for website owner. We followed WordPress standards while developing Hotel Booking plugin so I guess its back-end sections will work properly with third party plugin that modifies the look of WordPress dashboard.

            3. 6. Please tell us if we purchase Single Site license, is it required to pay $49 every year for updates or it is a onetime payment?

              7. Where we can find the difference between Single Site and Unlimited Site differences?

            4. 6. The license of Hotel Booking plugin is annual for plugin updates and technical support. Its renewal is 50% of the license plan.
              7. The only difference between Single and Unlimited licenses is the amount of sites where this license can be used. If you select Unlimited license you can use plugin on unlimited amount of sites and Single – 1 website only.

    9. hi, is it possible to see a summary of guests arriving today, tommorow etc? and to search for availability on any given date or dates in the future?

      many thanks

      1. Hi,
        It is possible to filter bookings per month and count guests on your own. However there is no tool yet to count all visitors for certain date.
        As for search availability so you can check it at single page of accommodation type using it form.

    10. This plugin appreas to be well designed and programmed.

      Can you tell me whether it is possible to check in a guest on the same day that the previous guest checks out? Example guest 1 arrives may 12 departs may 13, guest 2 checks in may 13th. this is critical.

      Thanks for for your assitance.

      1. Hi Lizzy,
        Thank you for your question. If guest #2 checks availability of accommodation that is booked till May 13 he will see this room in search results page. So he can book this room from May 13.

    11. Hi there, I am considering getting this plugin for a client. It´ s a tourist center with camping site, cabins/lodges, and a hotel. Besides the booking calendar view I don´ t see much in the way of administrative functionality, like lists of rooms checking in, checking out, rooms with staying guests, etc. And what about maintenance administration? A system to register missing/broken items pr room, etc. Please tell me these things are in place already….

      1. Hi,
        Thank you for your question. The booking can be made by searching for available accommodation by filling parameters like amount of guests, check-in and check-out dates. Could you specify what you mean under Booking Calendar view and how it works for multiple accommodation types you named?
        As for administration so there is single booking calendar that shows all available bookings/reservations in a calendar view. Could you specify the tool you need to register missing/broken items pr room, etc. Can you provide some example of solution for this?
        I’d recommend to view live demo and register the type that meets your requirements.

    12. Hello!

      Hi, before buying, I want to know if I can achieve this configuration

      Room X:
      Capacity:
      Minimum: 1
      Maximum 4

      Prices:
      1 Guest = 80
      2 Guests = 100
      3-4 Guests = 45 each guest

      Monday to Thursday: 30% discount

      I appreciate your feedback

      1. Hi Ed,
        The first option you described is not available at the moment. However we have it in our to-do list and we’ll notify you here once it is available. Thank you for your suggestion.
        The second option with 30% discount is possible by creating special Season with dates from Monday to Thursday. Then go to edit the rate and add new season price applying your special season with different price (-30%). Don’t forget to drag it above your main season price and save the changes. Thus special season price 2ith 30% discount will be applied on days from Monday to Thursday and your basic rate will be applied on other days.

      2. Hi Ed,
        We are happy to announce about 2.6.1 version release where it is possible to indicate price per guests amount. Thank you for your feedback.

    13. can this be used for like a vrbo type site? I nsee you add accomadation types so not sure. can you add actual listings that are all different?

      1. Hi Todd,
        Thank you for the question.
        You can create an unlimited number of accommodation types and sync them with VRBO and other booking platforms that use iCal. Note that this plugin may not fit your needs if you want to let multiple rental owners manage their own accommodations, bookings and payments, because the payment and booking systems of the plugin are shared.

    14. Sorry for maybe asking stupid question, but where does the money the guest pay go ? If they choose to pay , for example, by credit card ?
      I didn’t find any information where is my bank account settings available ?

      Thank you for the answer, and sorry for lack of knowledge .

      1. Hi Matija,
        Thank you for the question. WordPress plugins do not process payments, we only offer payment gateways that can process payments online safely. Our plugin has the following in-built payment gateways: PayPal, 2Checkout, Braintree, Stripe, Beanstream/Bambora. You enable them in the plugin settings (Accommodation > Settings > Payment Gateways) and fill in your seller account details there. These payment gateways appear on the checkout page and when a customer chooses one of them, they are redirected to a safe payment page of the chosen gateway. Upon payment the customer returns to your website and the money go to your seller account on PayPal, 2Checkout, Braintree, Stripe or Beanstream/Bambora.
        Some of these payment gateways allow buyers pay with a credit card without registering an account on the platform. You can connect more payment gateways with this addon.

    15. Hi, couple of presales questions for our setup which are a number whole houses.

      1) when guests book, is there an option to display our terms & conditions and for the guest click a box that they are agreeing to the terms and conditions as part of the booking and that box gets c arrived forward into an [email protected] or saved as pert of the booking.

      2) we have a service that provides linen per bed per stay, is there an option to select a service or fee which is based on number of beds

      3) our prices are based on a maximum number of guests although we do allow some additional guests on top of that for a fee per guest per day. Can we set up a service or fee , eg ‘additional guests’ that is a fee per guest per day but only up to a maximum of say 3 guests, ie a person can only select 1,2 or 3 for this service or fee.

      1. Hi Chris,
        Thank you for the questions.
        1) There is a customizable Terms and Conditions text that is displayed on the checkout page. So by placing an order guests agree to them, but there is no checkbox for it. You can add the info about agreement to the system email templates that are sent automatically when a booking is placed (Accommodation > Settings > Customer Emails).
        2) It is possible to set up a fee per accommodation per day. Each accommodation type can have its own fee, so knowing how many beds there are, you can set the needed price.
        3) You can set up the service Extra Person/Extra Bed per accommodation per day. Then tie to the accommodation as many of them as a specific accommodation type can handle. The customers can check the needed number of people on the checkout and the price will be counted accordingly.

      2. We are happy to announce that the MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin now meets the GDPR requirements. With the latest update (2.7.0), you can add the GDPR checkbox on the checkout page.
        Make sure, that the plugin is updated. Then create your Terms and Conditions page and define it in Accommodation > Settings (Terms and Conditions). The checkbox will appear on the checkout page automatically.

    16. Hi, I bought the Hotel Booking Plugin few days ago and the paypal checkout page is not working. I followed your instruction from the pdf documentation and still is not working. any advices? thank you!

      1. Hi David,
        We have tested PayPal gateway and it works perfectly. Please email us if you have any difficulties while configuring plugin. It is rather difficult to assist you due to lack of information you provided. Thank you.

    17. Hi, provided italian translation is working great except for the room price where the text “Prices start at:” is not translated. Any luck to have an help?

        1. Hi,
          How can you enable the automatic iCal synchronization? I have been checking the documentation and it says it’s manual:

          “For now, you have to sync all bookings manually from time to time”

          Also I couldn’t find an automatic mode on the demo. Is it a new feature?
          Thanks

          1. Hi Henry,
            The feature was introduced in the latest version. We updated the demo to the latest version. Now you can find the autosync options under Accommodation > Settings (scroll down).
            The documentation has not been updated yet. Thank you for pointing it out – we will fix it.

    18. I’m missing the offliine payment(bank transfer and/or cash) in the demo. Maybe i just mised it?
      I’n fact thats more or less the only reason keeping me from buying the plugin

      1. Guess i found out. I do not wish to only accept offline payment.I would need it as an alternative payment – additionally to the payment gateways.

        1. Hi Rene,
          You can enable all the payment gateways that you need, as well as Test Payment. The plugin settings let you rename Test Payment to Bank Transfer. So when someone places a booking and chooses Bank Transfer, their booking will appear in the back end and they will be sent an automatic email, which you can use for providing bank transfer details.
          We are also working on integrating the booking plugin with WooCommerce, so you will have access to more payment gateways.

            1. Hi Rene,
              Then you should better switch to another confirmation mode that is called ‘by admin manually’. Then you will manage all offline payments and change booking status manually. You can email us in case you need more details on this.

          1. This product is subject to a yearly license for support and automatic updates. It means that you will need to renew license for next year if you want to get updates and assistance for your plugin. Note: we provide 50% discount for each next renewal.

            1. You need to have technical knowledge in order to integrate a new payment gateway. Otherwise you can send the payment details in an automatic email sent by the plugin upon booking placement. Also it is possible to set up PayPal so that the customers will be able to pay by card without registering a PayPal account.
              We are planning on integrating the MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin with WooCommerce in one of the future updates, so you will be able to use Pay U on the check out page.

            2. Hi Sapam,
              All our developers are involved in a workflow with more priority feature requests. However we’ll keep your feedback about custom payment gateway in mind and will do our best to provide a solution later. So we recommend to use available payment gateways and confirmation modes for now.

            3. Hi Vasiliy,
              We started working on the WooCommerce integration only recently, so there is no exact date for the release yet. Depending on the difficulty, it will appear within a couple of months.

    19. Hy, i have a few pre-sales question:

      Can we cuztomize the booking form?
      i mean :
      *remove the second step easily and then directly going to third choise
      *removing field geust in third step as it same with second step.
      *adding tax service

      are all the customizing we can do manually and easily or we need to contact you? thanks in advance

      1. Hi Freyja,
        Thank you for your question however could you email us describing those points more detailed?:
        – I’m sorry but I’m not really sure I got this point properly. Could you clarify it? Do you mean you want to disable Search Results page?
        – Do you mean removing ‘Guest Name’ field on the Checkout page?
        – Taxes option is not available at the moment. We’ll start working on it after next update release. So while sending an email to us we would appreciate if you let us know the tax conditions you want to be added. Thank you.

      1. Hi,
        Thank you for reaching us out. We will review your request about adding Culqi payment gateway. Unfortunately we can not guarantee its release in the fastest terms as there are other features under
        development. However we’ll notify you here once we get any news on this.
        At the moment you can use other payment gateways or define such confirmation mode like – confirmation by admin. Using this mode your guest will get email with payment details to confirm the reservation. You will track all transactions and change status of bookings manually.
        Thank you for your interest.

        1. Thank you for your prompt response, I would like to propose an extra money to add the culqi system soon, it is really very important for my clients in latin america, tell me how much money would be and in what time they would do it, preferably as soon as possible. send me quote to [email protected], or reply me by this means thanks again for your kind response.

          1. Hi,

            Thank you for your reply. We’re working on new features at the moment
            and will finalize them in about 2 weeks. Then we might review your
            request about Culqi payment gateway. We’ll contact you with terms once
            we get any news on this. Thank you.

    20. Hi there,
      Is it possible to have services charges for children as well as adults? I need to be able to charge for both. And how would I go about bedding configuration if the guest has the option to have the vacation rental home (2 bedrooms) setup as queen bed and king bed or queen bed and twin beds?
      Thanks

      1. Hi Jen,
        Thank you for your question. We have already added request to optimize ‘Children’ parameter and collect feedbacks at the moment. This is rather controversial question as there are numerous rules in different accommodation establishments – some do not divide guests for adults/persons at all, some define children till 7 years, others till 17. That’s why we appreciate your feedback you provided.
        As there is no ready solution yet you can try hiding Children parameter by means of CSS and edit translation of Adults to Guests/Persons/etc. You can use Poedit or Loco Translate plugin to edit translation easily.
        Feel free to contact our support team if you need our assistance.

    21. I wonder, if there’s a black list option? Where a booking done by a previously known troublesome clients would be put on hold for a review by staff before accepting or rejecting the booking?

      1. Hi Jan,
        Thank you for your question however there is no black-list option in a plugin. This is rather custom request however we will track similar inquiries to see whether it is really required. Thank you for your feedback.

        1. It might seem strange at first, but it’s a real request by one of my clients whose family’s been running a successful hotel for last 25 years. They’ve got a policy, that if a problematic clients wants to come back, they tell him/her that they’re fully booked. They asked me to implement an automatic function that would do that.

    22. Good morning,

      I would like to know if your i could sell gift voucher for my rooms with your plugin ?
      They would not be linked to a date, as the person receiving the voucher would then contact us to make the booking (or maybe use a unique code to make the reservation free for them).
      If you don’t have that option, I think i could use a different plugin altogether to sell these Voucher, but it would be harder for me to do (in that case, would you have anything in mind you could recommand ?)
      Have a good week end,
      Henri (hopefully a future customer 🙂

      PS : I tryed your “contact us” form and received a “Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender” so i’m not sure that you received it, if you didn’t, that’s something you might want to inverstigate.

      1. Hi Henri! So far, we don’t have any specific ‘gift voucher’ feature, but we have coupon codes! It means you can provide a hand-crafted discount on any room with any discount percent (even 100%), so it should work! It won’t be linked to a date if you set it so in the settings.

        Also, please check your email inbox – we’ve sent you the screenshot with the discount code backoffice settings.

        Please let us know if you have any further questions!

    23. Hi i’ve bought another theme that i really like the design of it is there any possibility to integrate your plugin in my theme? Can i hire someone to do that?
      Thanks

      1. Hi Nuno,
        Thanks for your question. Hotel booking plugin is compatible with all WordPress themes and uses its design. That is it was not styled to fit certain themes – it uses styles of your theme so it will look natural at your site.

    24. Hi there,

      How can I go about adding a new payment gateway to this plugin? Unfortunately in my country we only have support for a single gateway; so I can’t use any of the default gateways you supplied.

      1. Hi Vernon! Thanks for your interest in our plugin. What gateway exactly are you referring to? Over time, we’ll be adding new payment gateways, but not sure which ones yet (as different people ask for different gateways, so more likely we’ll choose the most popular ones). At the moment, to add any extra payment gateway that is not listed on this page, you’ll need developer’s help as the process will require programming knowledge to modify the code.

        1. Thanks for getting back to me. In South Africa we only currently have PayU as a gateway (and from my understanding this only works here). I am a developer, and would like to add the gateway myself. Is there anything I need to know in regards with how your plugin is structured to add a gateway or is it similar to adding one for something like Woocommerce? By the way, I have already bought a copy of this, it’s really great!

          1. Hi Vernon,
            Yes, it is possible add custom payment gateway if you are skilled in coding. Unfortunately we do not provide customization offers however you can also email us if you need some tips.

          2. Vernon, did you come right with integrating PayU or any of the SA payment gateways? I bought plugin and developed website without
            realizing it cant integrate other payment gateways, I’m desperate!

    25. Good day, I would like to use this for a Group hotel website. Thus need the ability to do bookings for different hotels in different locations. Is this possible? Do i just setup the different hotels as categories? or what would be the best solution?

      1. Hi Jana,
        Thank you for your question. We’d recommend to install individual WordPress website for each Hotel. You can do it either installing sites to subfolders or setting up Multi-site Network with subsites (like is arranged at plugin live demo)

      1. Hi Ryan,
        Unfortunately we did not record time/date of each release. Actually plugin update frequency depends on scope of work for adding a new feature. Usually we release an update for Hotel Booking plugin once in a month.

    26. Hi Im looking into this booking system. I want to know can I set prices per person for the rooms? Also can I set the minimum stay option for only some rooms instead of them all? Does this have an Admin feature too?

      1. Hi Sarah,
        Thank you for your questions. You can set price for Rooms (accommodation types) currently and not for quantity of persons. You can just set capacity of room (accommodation types) quantity of adults and children and set rate for it. We’ll keep your request in mind.
        You can also test plugin functionality registering a demo.

    27. I want to know if this plugin supports “specific rates” depending on the number of days they book. For example: a hotel room should reflect a regular price for 7 days or more (cheaper price), another regular price for 6 days or less (more expensive price). We don’t want to do season rates, holiday rates, etc. Just as specified in my previous statements. Is this something that is available with this plugin?

      1. Hi Orlan,
        Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately the functionality you described is not available in the plugin yet. But we appreciate your idea and I’ve already added it to features list. We’ll try to apply it within further updates.

        1. Ok, Since we like your plugin with all other features, is this something we can add (customize) on the plugin without having any issues/errors? Is your plugin easy to customize?

          1. Hi Orlan,
            We would not recommend to customize plugin because you will loose your modifications if new version (without this feature yet) is available. But if you are good in coding and do not need updated version with new options you can edit its functionality.

    28. Hi. I have version 0.1.4 of this plugin. I want change check in and check out date form to dd/mm/yyy. I cant do this in admin panel . How can i do this?

          1. Hi there,
            As far as I understand you got our plugin integrated into third party theme. Then you should try to contact your theme provider and ask them to update plugin at your theme. You see your theme provider is responsible for plugin update.
            If you got plugin by purchasing it at our website you are able to get latest version at your account.

    29. hi can this plug in connect direct from the booking calendar to our OTA’s like Agoda, Booking.com, hostel world, expedia ect? so it will be a direct booking if the room is available and we will not get over bookings. We are looking to a replacement system from our hotel booking software we use. Thanks for your time

      1. Hi D’Arcy,
        Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not have access to API of solutions you mentioned. Could you email us more details about your request? We’ll gather information to work in this direction.

      1. Hi there,
        Thank you for your question. Using current version of plugin you can book multiple rooms one by one. But we are working on the ability to book multiple rooms for one time at this moment. This feature should be available in further updates. We’ll notify you here when it is released.

    30. Your blog is really helpful. Thank you.
      I found out All in One Reservation which is suitable for every kind of booking and reservation.

      1. Hi Marlen,
        Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately we can not say exact number as Hotel Booking plugin is available at other marketplaces. Moreover its early versions has been integrated into third party themes.

      1. Hello Jayson,
        Thank you for your question. We are working to enable flexible tax rates. We hope to release it soon.
        Currently you can add custom text to Booking Confirmation page where you can inform that indicated pricing does not include tax.

      1. Hello,
        You can email us all the features you would like to see in this plugin and we’ll review what can be added within next updates. Thank you for your interest.
