Comparison of wordpress’s booking plugin

How to select best booking system for you?

First you have to find what are mandatory functions for you and have to check whether the plugin has the function or not.

For me, following functions are mandatory.

– Insert booking from product page
– 1 booking resource behind plans
– Multi user functions
– Hourly base management
– Integration with payment
– Difference price based on date
– Integration with stripe
– Multi language function
