We really like the simple, three-step reservation process. You can approve or decline the reservation in the user-friendly admin panel. You also have a complete overview of the bookings by day, week, or month.
I would request you to take a look at my plugin which is a complete solution for bookings and appointments. This plugin is packed with features and provides to offer bookings in minutes, hours, days and months. It also provides for Fixed period bookings and a flexible calendar range booking and all this comes with an availability check. What more? the admin can set non-working hours and weekends.
Thank you for this article, and your diligence in compiling the appointment booking plugins. It would be useful, and interesting if you indicated your own experiences, and preferences for these products, I am looking for a simple, easy to use solution and I will be happy to pay a license fee further down the track, but in these early days of setting up my consultancy a free option is very welcome.Thank you again, do you have a particular preference among this list?Mike
