I tested several other car rental plugins, but they have been very limited in functionality. Ecalypse Car Rental plugin has endless functionality, display everything that we need for our Trailer rental business, it has an excellent and very intuitive backend where is so easy to setup everything. This is what I have been looking for a long time. We had some challenges during the installation on our customized WordPress theme, but we received an outstanding support from Pavel and his team which help us immediately and resolved out challenges. We do appreciate this very much and we will continue using and recommending the great products you are creating and your exceptional support. Thank you so much and we are looking forward to continue working with you and using your plugins in the years to come. Best Regards, Michael

As a small family run car hire company this is my first attempt at building our own site it took me over a year to decide to have a go and took approximately 90 minutes to have a fully functioning site. This is extremely easy to use and the speed with which you get results gives you quite a rush. The couple of queries I had were quickly resolved by customer support which turned out to be PICNIC problems. Problem In Chair Not In Computer, and having taken so long to take the plunge I have actually watched the product development along the way would thoroughly recommend
