Rentalot Plus builds on our popular free Rentalot system to deliver a full-featured self-booking property rental system.
The extension is very easy to configure en looks great in front- and backend. The only thing (for me) that is missing is the ability to set up multiple booking periods (week, weekend, midweek) but this also has the developers attention.
I am looking forward to new versions.
This provides the perfect balance. You can use multiple currencies, have fully flexible renting periods. You can have calendar views or table views of your availability with or without prices.
You can define extras, e.g. towel packs, extra beds and price them each, by week etc.
You can set discounts for multiple booking periods, and setup a payment schedule (e.g. 30% on booking, balance 4 weeks before etc.)
You can choose to show booked periods or not, show unit descriptions or not, provide text before and after the calendar/table.
It has flexible forms built in to capture enquiry/booking details, flexible email options.
There are a few reports available too, though I haven't used these yet.
You can enable online payments through Paypal/moneybookers or the system is very useful even without this.
It also comes with the most important thing - good documentation and a developer who takes pride in his work, and fixes bugs quickly.
Rentalot Plus is incredible value too.
Can't recommend this highly enough. Thanks Chris.
(As there are spa hotels with 7*, why not to give it to an outstanding extension)
It offers more than relaxing massage, jacuzzi and big swimming pool below palm trees. Much more I will say.
Working straight 12 hours on implementing Rentalot Plus on my site (ok, I admit, I had some brake time), and it is done, I mean d.o.n.e. Perfect, works like a charm, intuitive, well documented, and what is the best thing I have 3 apartments live one site, ready to be booked.
Tested all I can think of, and it is not showing me any errors. Now, I can go to sleep, and I will not be surprised if I get some apartment booked, and what is the best, system email send is personalized so well, that customer will have a great feeling of fast response.
What should be added to Rentalot Plus. I cannot think of it right now, as for 35 EUR you cannot ask for more.
Great job, best extension I have ever purchased.
I am using Joomla 1.6 since January this year, love it, and 'am planning to move all my other websites to it soon (just about 10 other sites :)
Cheers to Joomla 1.6 and Rentalot Plus
You made my day easy and busy
If you are planning on renting out properties or rooms etc, then I really do recommend this component...And I've not even needed to use support yet as the 70 manual is so well written! Well Done.
We take great pride in our software and in the support we provide. If you encounter a bug or a problem in any of our software, we will fix it. If you encounter a usage difficulty or ambiguity, we will help you, and we then amend our documentation to provide the same help to all our users.
This user did not report any kind of bug or problem, he wanted help to implement a complex new feature. In this case we felt that this went far beyond the remit of normal support, and we declined. We do have to draw a line between support and consultancy, and we are happy that we made the right decision in this case.
The price is more than worth the results you will have.
Chris has been very helpful modifying code to suit my server host and more importantly very quick at doing so.
If you need a booking extension look no further!
(Note to all devs - if you have masses of features in your extensions, you may be making the user's life worse, not better, by taking up too much of their time!)
This component will do the job nicely, however!
What is more, because I am an idiot and get fussy over all kinds of things, the developer has been very receptive to ideas and I have watched the development go from strength to strength.
