With the Booking Calendar Contact Form you can create a classic contact form or a booking form with a reservation calendar, connected to a PayPal payment button. The reservation calendar lets the customer select the start (ex: check-in) and end (ex: checkout) dates.
The reservation calendar is an optional item, so it can be disabled to create a general purpose contact form.
There are two types of bookings available in the calendar configuration: full day bookings or partial day bookings. With full day bookings the whole day is blocked / reserved while in partial day bookings the start and end dates are partially blocked as used for example in room/hotel bookings.
- Booking form connected to PayPal: After clicking the reservation / book button on the booking form, the user is redirected to PayPal and after completing the payment three emails will be sent: the automatic PayPal notification, the booking confirmation email to the user sent from the website and the notification email to the website administrator containing the booking details. At this point the booking will be confirmed and will appear in the bookings list and calendar.
- Reservation / booking calendar with optional availability verification: The dates are blocked in the calendar only if the "bookings overlap" option is enabled (it's enabled by default).
- Season management: Configuration accepts different prices for different dates (ex: low / medium / high season prices, special date's prices, etc...)
- Supports full-day bookings or partial day bookings as used in hotels / room reservations (details mentioned above)
- Allows to disable/hide the booking calendar to convert the booking form in a general purpose contact form
