Rentalot Plus builds on our popular free Rentalot system to deliver a full-featured self-booking property rental system.
I have now used it for couple of months and it is going well now.
There are minor things that you need to get used to as is typical with "pre tailored" components, but now me and my colleugues have worked out our working proceedure to fit the component, maybe not the best way but it works for us.
It took me quite some time to set the component up, which I was not suspecting from all the statements made in previous reviews. But once that is done things run more or less as expected.
The support is decent as stated in other reviews.
Unless you are willing to spend tens (or even hundreds) of thousands of dollars on a fully customised system, your business will always have to adapt to the way the software works. However, we are always interested to hear feedback about people's needs and wishes. We can't always oblige but we do carefully consider every suggestion. It is unfair to give such a poor rating without giving us the feedback we need to understand your issues. I see that you have given similar treatment to other extensions in this category and I do have to question your motives. I hope that future reviewers will be more considerate.
There are plenty of regular releases to add new features and fix the occasional bug.
The support is first class - the couple of minor issues I have had have been dealt with quickly, efficiently and in a friendly way.
This extension is highly recommended.
And best of all (something that no other joomla extension of this type offers) when a client searches for certain dates, it gives back an already calculated price, so the client can see it immediately.
The support just couldn't be better - whenever you write, they reply in 5 minutes. Just great!!
It's really fantastic component! Support is great and i love they documentation. So it's 100 points by 100 point scale!
The extension has anything you will ever need plus the support is terrific.
I even had some pre sales questions that where answered in 30 minutes.
For the price you can get this it’s really a steal
Thank you for making my life easier :)
I had an issue that I contacted support about and they figured out the problem and responded to me quickly. The problem was occurring due to another script, not Rentalot Plus, and the fix was easy - just removing a reference to a a js file which it turned out I didn't need.
Well worth the price.
2 years with special upgrades and very good documentation. Really professionals!!
Thank you all of you!
Thanks a lot....
I had a couple of minor problems that turned out to be issues with my own website and not Rentalot Plus.
I contacted Les Arbes who came back to me within a very short time. They pinpointed the problem with my website. I had read the comments about their support and my experience was the same...the support is excellent!!
The user guide for Rentalot Plus is comprehensive. The extension is very flexible and you can customise it to suit your requirements. It is fast and looks very professional. I have asked for comments from prospective clients and friends and their response was the same... It was easy to use on the front end.
If you are debating which booking module to use for your site I can thoroughly recommend Rentalot Plus... it is worth far more than the 50 Euros I paid for it.
Thank you Les Arbes Design!!
I needed :
1 - a product with a wide range of configurable options which I could use for different kind of activities (accomodations, seminar rooms, sport activities...)
2 - a product with a very good UserGuide in order to be able to work with it fast and easy
3 - a product with a reasonnable price
4 - a product with full language support in order to build multi language websites
5 - a product developped by a team which offers a full support in case there would be any problem.
I looked around for a long time and tried different extensions, and I really thought I would never find something to suit all my requirements... until I found RENTALOT PLUS. I read all the nice reviews for this extension and I decided to trust everyone and tried it myself...
I can tell you I'm just really amazed ! The product forfill absolutely all my requirements and kept even more possibilities open ! It is super flexible, userfriendly, with a super good userguide and an amazing quick, honest, helpfull and friendly support !
Once again, thank you to LesArbresDesign for this GREAT JOB and keep up developping !
If you still hesitate to try it, please stop thinking and just TRY IT, you'll be satisfied right away !
I emailed them to enquire if there was any way the hurdles could be overcome, same day received a very courteous, professional and also friendly reply; after VISITING our site & evaluating our product range I was correct, it wasn't the service for our business at all...and offered a more than satisfactory solution at the same time.
Marvellous service, even though they had nothing to gain out of the deal, I wouldn't hesitate recommending LesArbres to anybody.
My client needs a simple easy to manage solution. I need an easy to install solution with good documentation and good support. I had a question about configuration and it was answered quickly and politely.
I'm happy to submit an excellent review for an excellent product.
It works great and the PDF instructions are very concise and clear.
The support is top level: I had a question and they answered right away (although I bought the basic version). For now, I don't have any problems and it's all working perfectly.
I am using the extension on a website for a language school, i.e. for clients to book courses.
If you're not sure if this product is right for you, I suggest you check the quality and content of the User's Guide which is a free download.
Specifying different pricing for each day of the week can be tedious but I was able to create daily prices to the end of the year, export the pricing table using phpMyAdmin, quickly make the required changes and then import the data back into the table without too much fuss. Ideally, a pricing CSV import feature would be ideal but not a show stopper for me.
CSV import/export of prices was added in version 5.0 and certainly does make life easier for people with daily prices or multiple units.
