Reviews

Great

Very good plugin, simple but very strong !
Thank you for this very good work !

Free Version Very Limited

The description oversells the free version of this plugin. The free version is VERY limited and does not give you the ability to try out the features you want.

The various premium versions all seem to have a lot of features, but you have to buy your selected premium version before you can try its features.

A 3-month unlimited trial license would be a desirable feature. Then, at least, one could see how well the plugin works with one’s own website.

The free version only allows you one booking type and for full days and seems to be targeted specifically to booking availability in, for example, a single guest room or apartment. If you want to take bookings for specific times in the day, you need to pay for that feature, which means that for most uses (if you’re a hair salon, sports coach, therapist, business consultant, etc.) this plugin is useless unless you’re willing to take the plunge and buy the premium version.

Excellent and Worth It

Great, responsive and fast support. Well worth the time invested to configure this plugin and have had nothing but great results from the author.
