The Complete Online Booking and Property Management Solution
Jomres is a commission-free, responsive, Open Source booking system used by thousands of businesses worldwide to better manage their properties and reservations. It provides a unified toolset that can be easily used by businesses that accept bookings on a daily or nightly basis.
What makes us different?
Unlike other booking engines, Jomres is self-hosted, meaning that the software is installed on your web server, not ours. Because it's Open Source this means that you are free to modify the software to achieve your specific goals, instead of it being on somebody else's servers where you're over a barrel, forced to pay monthly for a service that you cannot customise.
We've been in this business for 13 years, focussing on just the one product to make it the absolute best in it's class. Our competitors copy our features, but we do it first and we do it best.
The Core system is free, if you want a simple booking or reservation system for your hotel or villa website then the free core system is all you need to get up and running. If you decide you want to add functionality later on then you can upgrade your Jomres membership which allows you to install any of the 168 plugins available through the easy to use Jomres Plugin Manager. We also support third party developers, who offer 80+ plugins of their own.
There's no need to buy a plugin for managing multiple properties, as the multi-vendor functionality is built right into the free Core of Jomres.
All of this is free!
Dynamic Dashboard Property managers can add, remove and order widgets in their dashboard.
Tried and tested. Jomres is a true bookings portal and has thousands of users who've helped us to fine-tune the system to make it the best in it's class.
Large and enthusiastic community forum. Before choosing a competitor, check out their forums, if they have one. In our experience a plugin's real value can be determined from a forum's activity, it is the heart and soul of the project. If the forum's dead, so is the project.
Totally multilingual. Use any multi-language plugin you want in Joomla. 45 language files are included by default. Unique label editing feature allows each property to have their own labels, and our Language Context feature allows different property types to have completely different language files.
Supports both Bootstrap 2 and Bootstrap 3, another first. Completely responsive. We have adhered to the BS2 and BS3 coding standards religiously, so Jomres will work in any Joomla 3 template. As always, where we lead other Booking systems will follow.
Works for just single property sites, or multiple properties. Equally suited to booking hotels, B&Bs and individual properties like apartments and villas, cars, boats and tools.
Intelligent, Ajax driven reservation system. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for guests to make bookings. Two different room list styles, autodetect guest country, even disable the depature date input altogether. Each property can have different Required fields in the form. Property managers can enable/disable booking functionality on each property at the flick of a switch. For hotels, single person supplements can be applied in the event of under-occupancy. Each property chooses it's own currency and pricing output format. Create new Joomla users when unregistered users book for the first time. Room locking means that if one person selects a room during booking, another person using the form at the same time can't book the same room.
Optimised for performance. our clients have successfully used it on websites with more than 30,000 properties listed. Guests, invoices and booking listings are all Ajax driven meaning that it deals with large data volumes very easily.
Bookings per night or per day. Deposits can be a percentage or flat rate, or the first day's booking cost. Variable depsosits based on the number days from today determine if the deposit paid should be a smaller fee, or the whole booking cost.
We listen to our users. The property manager's User Interface has been designed after consulting with real property managers to provide the most logical User eXperience possible.
Clear separation of Site and Property manager responsibilities All property management is done via the front end of the site, no need to allow managers to access the administrator area.

Simple or extended property configuration Site managers choose whether property managers should have few, or many settings to choose from.
Crisp, clean dashboard. Drag and click the calendar to create or modify a booking's room and dates, or drag away to easily cancel a booking.
