What our customers are saying?
While we started off with the free version, we soon upgraded to the Large Business version which was well worth the money. There are so many useful features, with updated features added regularly.
The best part has been the support provided. Because our need for this program is not a typical, we have been able to highly customize the program to fit our sponsorship program. The technical support with this has been fantastic and timely.
Since we have implemented this program we have seen an increase in the number of sponsorships we book. I highly recommend this program. Well worth the investment.”
Support team have been extremely helpful with all our questions and turn-around time is next to none. You took a lot of the typical frustrations out of implementing this and I am sure you will continue to be responsive to your customers demands and keep updating it. Definitely one of the better plug-ins out there. And it will become better yet. Thank you.”
Booking Calendar is a company that not only delivers a "Rolls Royce" product, it also delivers a level of customer service that is quite extraordinary. It's rich in knowledge, informative and comes with a level of patience that goes beyond anything I have ever experienced.
Would I recommend this company to you? Yes, I would recommend them to you, your friends and the companies for which you work.”
On purchasing the Hotel Edition, the help I have received has been fabulous, the response time quick and the manner of the staff exactly what I was needing.
Thank you for all you help!”
SUPPORT!!! I emailed these guys and they replied not only the same day... but after 1 hour of posting THIS IS AMAZING
And of course they gave me a solution to my problem!
You don t need to be a programmer to use it... and to customize it you need just some very basic html knowledge and css of course if you are going to style it the way you want
We tested it and bought it of course to give our support to the people who programmed this amazing product
Remember ... give support and you can expect support...”
I needed a plugin that would provide a calendar and form for customers to book dates for a venue, and this one is perfect. It has helped me to design a simple booking setup for my clients website. My clients are going to be very pleased, as this will help their business dramatically. Their old website had a very, very bad process for booking, where you have to create an account before even checking availability.
Using Booking Calendar, we're working to create a simple and intuitive user experience for my client's customers, while organizing the bookings into WordPress.
I'm using the Premium Edition version, which is sufficient for this use.
Check it out.”
After looking around at many hosted booking solutions for a paintball site client I chose the pro version of the booking calendar plugin as the price is a bargain and the look and layout superb. After adding some other various plugins to the client site I also found out the support was as first class as the plugin!
An excellent piece of code with top notch support from the developer. I have no qualms about recommending this comprehensive piece of software to any developer looking to integrate an online booking resource to their wordpres based site.
I've got a client who needed a serious booking system realized within days. A quick research showed that this is my thing. After few emails with the support, I've had no doubts that this plugin is doing the job. I was able to build and configure the required system in short amount of time. I had some small issues, but the support was amazing - they answered all my questions within hours!
I would like to recommend this system to every person that needs to build a complete booking system which has a lot of features. Everything works like a charm. And if you happen to have some issues or do not understand something - the support is amazing! They will certainly support you!
Hotel Booking already covered most of our requirements so we took a view why reinvent the wheel. We also liked the fact that we would own the license for the free standing programme and host our own data, unlike many of the other booking systems which require a 3rd party infrastructure and ongoing fee.
We commissioned the onlinebookingcalendar team to make us a customised version of Hotel Booking. Working with them was a pleasure. They provided good programming, communicated well and worked to agreed times scales. The eventual product does exactly what we asked for. I can easily recommend working with them.”
I am still implementing this plug-in on my website but what at first seemed a daunting challenge has been made so easy by Wp-Develop's wonderful support.”
The 1 time fee for this software was the same price as 4 months of any online calendar services... and its interface is gorgeous.
- Selling Points (for us) The interface is the most modern of any calendar software I available
- Rrequested a completely new feature and it was added in a week FOR FREE
- 1-time cost - No monthly fees
- Seemlessly integrated with worpress
- expertly coded for compaitibility
- completely customizable interface for any booking purpose
- gorgeous and intuitive interfaces for both Customer & Admin views
Great Software, Great Support, Great Buy. ”
I first thought the easiest method for accomplishing a booking system would simply be writing a quick and dirty plugin to solve to problem. After a little bit of research I discovered the Booking Calendar plugin.
I know the plugin is most commonly used to reserve hotel rooms, apartments, etc. but because it is so flexible I was able to customize every element displayed to the user, reworking it perfectly to fit my needs. Now the customers can reserve their dates (even multiple customers on the same day i.e. multiple groups) and can even process payment fully through the site.
This plugin truly saved me hours of developing and headaches. The developer of this plugin responds almost immediately to support requests and he is more than willing to work with you to customize the plugin to fit your needs.
The AJAX interface adds a nice layer of interactivity and the included style sheets also makes it super simple to integrate the look of the booking system flawlessly into my site.
I really recommend this plugin to anyone needing any sort of booking system, not just for hotels or apartments but for any resource needing a reservation.
Give this plugin a try, even the free version offers tons of features most other plugins charge money for. Unlike those other booking plugins, this allows me to keep all resource on site, eliminating the risk of a third-party site from going offline, potentially losing all your client data.”
It's working really well so far. Had a reservation through the website the first night I installed it.”
I want to thank you for all of your help with your plugin. I have to say from one Web Developer to another, it's a very robust product that does much more than I thought initially. My client's site was just launched and she seems extremely happy with the site and what it can offer her customers. So thank you again very much for all of your help!”
Emailed for support, and got a response back in less than 12 hours, and had a solution to the issues along with a code fix with another few hours.
Very happy with the plugin, and super happy with the level of service.
Anyone considering this plugin, I highly recommend it. As well as being about the best I could find for the purpose, the support is excellent.”
