Is upgrading to Pro mandatory?

No, not at all. However, it took our company around 8 years to build the Pro version and we are willing to spend a lot more years of work on this software. We encourage you to evaluate the free version first, and then upgrade to Pro to unlock its potential.

Why some functions are not available in the free version?

We are a software development company that constantly works to deliver professional tools to build up websites. We make money by selling licenses of the Pro version.

Is it worth upgrading to Pro?

VikRentCar is not a one-page plugin. You can build websites worth a lot of money with this plugin. You don’t need anything else to deliver a complete website, if not a Theme and some experience with WordPress.

Can I use VikRentCar with my preferred Theme?

Yes, of course. You are free to install Vik Rent Car on your website with your own Theme. The plugin will adjust to it thanks to its own CSS framework. It is also possible to work on a custom CSS file to adjust some layouts.

How’s the availability of the vehicles calculated?

You can create several vehicles through the back-end, each with a total number of units available. Optionally, these cars can be assigned to one or more locations for pick up and drop off. The system will calculate the remaining availability at “vehicle level”, meaning that depending on how many vehicles have been booked for some days of the year with “Confirmed” orders, the system will be able to determine how many units are left for a certain vehicle. The locations selected for drop off or pick up will not affect this calculation. For example, if you have 5 units availble of a specific car, and if this car is booked for next weekend by one customer, those days/times will have 4 units left for booking.

Update: The developer answered, and it makes sense!!!Sorry for the inconvenience…—————————————————————————The developer somehow ignores absolute basics. The CSS files for this plugin mess up a lot of website-parts. This is especially aparrent when using Elementor. One example:In vikrentcar.css line 5372:input, textarea, select {width: auto !important;}First of all, !important should not be used, especially with such a GENERAL style rule.EVERY input, textarea and select on the WHOLE SITE are affected.This is just an example of many unfortunately….Other than that, the plugin seems to do it’s job.We are happy to change our review as soon as the styling issues are fixed!

I have the PRO version and the payment method discount is not workingit gives the wrong result both in the administrative one with the order and also in the pdf that goes to the customer! after a week with support informing me that they will update their developers they still haven’t. to note that I had this plugin for many years for the joomla version and it worked correctly! their support is very amateurish

The plugin is well-developed, offering nearly all the options you might need for managing car bookings on your site. We encountered some custom technical issues and reached out to their support team. To our surprise, the team at VikRent team was available and assisted us with the requested implementation in less than 2 days. Thank you for the support!

The plugin is very good, but I’ve had to jump through a lot of hoops to get it to do what we need for our client. One issue that is extremely strange is that when you set opening and closing times for stores, (ours is set at 8:30 – 5:00), customers can select 8:00am, 8:15am, 5:15pm, 5:30pm and 5:45pm from the time dropdown, which doesn’t make sense at all when they open at 8:30 and close at 5:00. I contacted their support team and was told this is just the default way that it works. I find that very odd. What is the point in having an option for opening and closing times when the plugin ignores them?Another frustrating thing is being unable to customize the Customer Email separate from the Store owner’s email. So when you add important information that’s just for the customer (e.g, bring your ID, Payment Card etc), the store owner also receives this exact same email, when they don’t need all that extra info that’s just for the customers reference. All in all, the plugin is good, but some things just don’t make sense the way they’re done.
