DetailsCompatibility and ChangelogInstallation & UpdatesRequirements
This addon is useful for rental businesses like rental bikes, rental apartments, motels, etc. It allows you to setup the booking & appointments plugin as a full rental system.

This addon allows you to block certain days before and/or after the Booking dates chosen by the customer while placing the order. After the lockout for a date range is reached, the unavailable period as mentioned while setting up the addon will be disabled and those dates will have label as “On Rent”. This is useful if you are renting products where it takes time to deliver & pick-up the product from the customer – like a mobile toilet.

Since renting is different from hotel bookings, you can also charge for the last day of booking by enabling the “Flat Charge per day” field.

You can also enable same-day booking by enabling the “Allow Same day booking” field, this will charge the customer for one single day.

This addon is only for the Multiple days Booking method. It would not work for any Single day booking setup.

Compatibility
  • WooCommerce v2.0 till WooCommerce v2.5.2.
  • WordPress 3.0 & above
  • Rental System Addon v1.7 requires Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce v2.8 or higher.

This plugin looks great and is almost exactly what I am looking for! I would need to be able to offer customers one variation on the product that would cost a fixed amount and extend the blockout date after the date selected. Would this be a reasonably straightforward adjustment of the code (assuming there are no updates that will tackle this soon)?

Thanks for the appreciation Dave. I am not quite sure exactly what you mean, but you can modify the code to your liking. Is it something like booking a fixed block of 7 days, 14 days, etc. with a fixed price ?

Dave

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes that’s exactly it! It’s a dress hire store – they want to be able to offer two date ranges (e.g. 4 days for £50 total, 7 days for £100). I reckoned the easiest way might be to use the single day booking (with a minimum number of days blocked out after the booked date) and then extend it depending on if the customer chooses the extra days. Does that make sense?

From what I gather none of the current versions tackle that…or am I wrong?

You are right, none of the current versions tackle that. This functionality is already built, but yet to be released publicly. We have built a “Fixed Block Booking” tab that allows to do exactly what you have asked. We expect to release it in the next 2 weeks time.

Hi,

Can the calendar be placed on the checkout page instead of the product page?
The option I need is a date range picker on the checkout of woocommerce that multiply’s the total amount money with the amount of days in the picker.

With regards,

Femi

We rent out furniture for home staging purpose en we bought woo bookings to set up our website for rental, but we can’t figure out how to set up out rental periods for 1 week | 1 month | 3 months with different prices, i know how to create a variable product which isn’t “bookable” and a bookable product which isn’t variable, i also need to be able to let the customer choose the quantity and my programer says its not do able with bookings….
Did you have something working for us?

Hi Annie,

Our Booking & Appointment plugin is not the same as the one provided by the WooCommerce team. They are 2 different plugins.

If you are looking to purchase our Booking & Appointment plugin, then you can setup the 3 rental periods with the Fixed Booking Blocks functionality that’s provided in the core plugin. You wouldn’t need the Rental Addon for that.

You are able to choose Quantity as well with our plugin. And you can also use our plugin with WooCommerce variations.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
