A very good booking system together with a very useful channel manager

With all these tools,

This is what our customers think about us

Finally a Channel Manager fully compatible with Booking.com

I have been using Vik Booking plugin with Vik Channel Manager for my motel with 17 studio’s and 3 apartments for one year now. The main reason for going with this plugin was the Channel Manager which allowed me to automatically sync my site with booking.com.

The plugin’s functionality is very good at the front-end as well as back-end. The back-end is also easy to use especially useful on my mobile phone to answer availability request and reservations on the fly.

For the price you pay you get top notch support. Over the last year I raised about 14 support tickets. Answers were fast and every time detailed, to the point and helpful to get moving again. In both all my cases support resolved these cases same day.
— Hans, Owner of Marx Motel

I stop warring about maintaining multiple booking calendars.

I own a small B&B and a holiday cottage, and I’m just starting up. My main issues are environmental health, fire regulations, and now worrying about getting customers while the UK is on lockdown.

I didn’t ever want to have to worry about maintaining multiple booking calendars over a wide range of different booking systems as well so I’m delighted I chose VikWP.

The support team have answered a lot of what must have been annoying questions from me over the last few months. They helped me to investigate problems and often they went that extra mile to help.
When I look for a plugin, I don’t just look for the functionality it provides me. I look for the quality of support that’s given too. If your looking for a booking plugin for WP and want to have confidence in the support, then this is the one for you.
— John, Owner of Stay In Kintyre B&B
