If we purchase the booking module now, will we receive updates for it once they are released?

will it be able to handle localized date/time formats. ie. usage in denmark are dates dd/mm-yyyy and a times in 24 Hours. How is return of item handled ? Will it become "on Stock" automatically when reservation period is over.?

Nils, It uses your store date format, whatever you set it to. It's not handling the return, it handles the reservation time. E.g. if I reserve an item for tomorrow, it's still available to reservation the day after tomorrow etc. Please check the demos, they explain a lot.

Is it possible to do with this extension: We make online reservation on one page and we choose date, location, time and it gets the availability result with prices and short descriptions for all cars. According to the result, we book one of them that means on Magento we add service product to our shopping cart.

@Emin You can only choose date and time of the rental with our extension. There is no location yet. Also, it would not give the list of available products basing on the selected date yet - this is something we will add in the future.

Hello, I need a booking extension for products (www.paintball-verhuur.nl ; www.buitensport-verhuur.nl and some other future websites. The products on these website should get individual discounts when renting longer than x days/weeks etc 
Also I need to define individual rental-rates… e.g. weekend-rate. A short wishlist: - ability to rent one or more of several items - front-end calendar showing the availability - drop-downs showing start and end dates - time dependent price: example 1 day = €10 , 1 weekend = €15,- , 1 week = €20,- - price shown on the product page updates when start/end dates change (Ajax, jQuery, etc) - show total and available number of items - admin can set “dead-time” after item returned (for cleaning, etc) - admin can set min and max booking time as well as granularity, like min 1 day, max 14 days, possible values 1, 2 4,8,12 days - discounts by coupons - discounts by quantity - discounts by gift certificates - custom disclaimer for each service/product - option for customer to sent the product (with UPS etc) - if customer choose sending option the product cannot be avaible for two days before and two days after. - easy to translate in dutch and french Hope you can help me out with this! I know some who are also highly interested in these options. Best Regards, Sander Kwantes www.wildatheart.eu The Netherlands

Hello, Does the "Booking and Reservation" extension include guest type functionality? For example a product that offers Adult and Child pricing? Basically where the product showcases both pricing on the same page (i.e. 2 adults, 1 child). Kind Regards, Robert

Hi Robert, The Booking and Reservations extension doesn't provide such opportunity. The price is fixed for the same period. Thank you for feedback!

For tours, we also need to be able to sell by adult and child prices. You say this is not possible with your extension earlier. Is this due anytime in a future update? Or is there any way of setting it up using your extension with existing magento - perhaps using product option settings? If we want to sell a boat cruise that operates at 12:30-14:30, 15:00-17:00 and 17:30-19:30 (operates these 3 specific times on same 1 day, so customer should be able to choose which time he wants at booking) - is this possible with your extension? I am confused about the QTY label near Add to Cart - for example if I am ordering a tour for 3 adults and 2 children then what quantity should be entered?

Now we are working at extensions that will have improved booking functionality. They will be able to solve some of your issues. One of such modules will be released in August.

It is not by default currently. Adapting it to your service will require some customization.
