In theory there are a lot function, but unfortunately most of them are hidden or broken.

Ease of use

It seems like there is no way to use it without weeks of practice.


They try to help, but most of the time it's like "we can make it but not explain it". And the forum is broken.


Unfortunately just a few examples without the possibility to dig deeper.

Excellent Tool

Posted on 02 September 2014

This is a clever booking engine which was just what we needed for our website, to allow people to book three different fields at a campsite. It's quite tricky to get your head around, but the support docs are excellent and you can submit a ticket if you get stuck. Highly recommended.

From Free to Paid

Posted on 21 August 2014

It is two years and two different sites that I am using this component now. It is not for the faint hearted and I am using this component for industrial booking. I did try many other systems as well and I also struggled to get it to work, but once get to know it, working like a charm.

My advise is that when you want to use this component, read the docs very carefully as well as the provided videos on the setup and you will really start enjoying its full potential.

Great component.

Waste of time!

Posted on 11 July 2014

Actually developers lies that this is free extension. Its a trick just to buy the full version. As this one which is free, is totally pointless. Whats is the point of booking system without payment options? Its pretty hard on their website to find difference. I just waste 2 days setting up this extension, and find out it has no payment gateway!

Owner's reply: Sorry to hear that, just let me react shorty:
* comparision of Booking editions available is clearly summarized at
* we think, that for private usage, many small e.g. B&B owners do not need online payments and still may have good use for a reservation component
* once the customer requires online payments, then they probably want it to run their business - in such case we think they should consider supporting the development and purchase a paid version

After wasting 2 hours of my life configuring this Component, it tells me that I can only create 2 Objects in the free Version.


I'm going to report this Extension so the creators are forced to write this limitation clearly on this site.

You can't call this Extension Non-Commercial just because it works for free if you have just TWO items to manage. This is simply fraud.

You can't even imagine how angry I am. I won't use a single Extension made from Artio ever again.

Owner's reply: Hello, you do not need to be angry. This limitation fact is published at our sire already for ages:

I just want to say is a great extension and when you need support they are always there, and im greatfull with the staff cause the help all the time when you have any issue with the extension.

Thank you

great for our travel agency

great extension for our travel agency to present our offers. we are using pro version with unlimited objects. good support on email and easy to customize design with css. very easy to translate in other languages. thank you!

Good Stuff

Posted on 07 May 2013

I've been testing BookIt for a time and decided to use it for a customer who rents bicycles.

After upgrade to the commercial version (49 EUR [or 99 EUR with premium support] it's really worth for one year update) we had some minor problem and support helped within less than 24 hrs.

The component is useful as is, but I'd love to see it more flexible with designs and colours.

People who are only a little bit experienced with css can adapt it very easy.

I don't mean to lump on, but i want to save time for anyone that is like me and ignores bad comments.

I wasted six hours trying to make it work in test, thinking I would buy it later.

The admin interface is confusing and disjointed. There seems to be no flow in how it works. The documentation does not match the current version - it must be for an older version.

I finally got to the point of creating "objects", and every time I did the second built object, when saved, renamed the first so the both object names matched. Weird things going on with this component.

Owner's reply: Hello, it looks like you were playing with some old version? As the new 2.x for Joomla 2.5/3.0 does not use the "Object" term anymore and the GUI has been changed significantly.

We are currently migrating some of these new 2.x features to 1.6 version, that will be the last support Joomla 1.5 version, as this Joomla version is no longer supported by community.

So, please, maybe you want to give a try to version 2.x.

Not for PROs

Posted on 05 February 2013

This extension is NOT for PROs in the tourism field. I have 10 years of expertise on the Bulgarian Black Sea market - one of the biggest such venues in Europe, and will speak from the ACCOMMODATIONs point of view.


- There is a limitation for 2 apartments in FREE version. Not HOTELS - but rooms, apartments, villas.

- They are not BOOKABLE - you don't have the payment methods activated in the free version, but its fine, because it is stated beforehand for the FREE version.

GREAT CONs - any version:

- You cannot declare CHILDREN's age, not prices for them, nor prices for 2 AD + 1 CH , 2 AD + 2 CH + 1 INF, other than a currency discout. Who works this way? No percentages? No straight package price for such people?

- No differentiation of prices for different tourist groups at same time periods. Let's say, booking price for 2+2 during LOW SEASON is very hard to be made different to 3 AD in the same LOW SEASON.

Many people think it's easy to make a hotel booking component, and ask money for it. Not so!!! And just to mention - this FREE component has the full functionality of the PAID versions, but just for 2 objects. Well, as a PRO, I wouldn't pay for it.

And b the way - awful English language in the component, not friendly at all, cannot understand easily what the options are for...

Owner's reply: Hello,
thanks for your feedback. I have to agree with most what you wrote.
The issue here is, that the component is meant for general bookings -- it is not specialized for hotel industry, so of course, it is not full-featured from this point of view.

It is primarily meant for what you mentioned - apartments, villas, small boarding houses, etc. where they do not need to have so detailed requirements about configuration of packages and others.
Big companies and hotels usually either use custom-made systems or specialized commercial software.
Booking component is not aimed on these.

Anyway, we certainly plan to keep enhancing the functionality, to allow even more options and possibly also packages in future.

As regards English - you are right and we are already working on improving that.
