Hi All,
this is a question to find out if i can get it done with VM (new version, new joomla)
i'm not afraid of coding few lines and actually would like to have this flexibility if i had some clues searching the forums ( i guess i will find it)
I just started a new website with a cart component which got me stuck quite quickly.
my product im going to sell is not an easy one but also not new in the online industry.

the desired product is a MULTI-DAY TOUR & HOTEL BOOKING product.

1. the TOUR has a fixed price.
2. the tour has a free selection of DATES.
3. the package includes hotel-booking which has some configurations:
a. there should be 3 HOTEL PACKAGES/TYPES for each package tour.
b. each hotel has different price setups for every date range and has about 10 ranges with prices.
c. the buyer can add rooms and for each room - add adults and children ( those will also multiply the fixed price of the tour)
d. each additional room should add the room price.
e. the price should be visible and calculated on the fly so the user sees the change.
f. should have different price for adults, children and infants just like in any hotel.

thanks for anybody who answers.

this image represent the selection of the hotel TYPE (3.a -> 3.e)

There are extensions which are better suited for your project than VirtueMart, like for example 'Jomres'. VirtueMart is not suited for date-driven applications.

That is not true JJK. Pro-It wrote an addon to run a hotel with vm.

Hi,
I have coded a component to make bookable Hotel rooms in VirtueMart.
You can see it on this website https://www.burghuegel.it/de/zimmer-und-preise.html .

How you get the the room availability from the Hotels?

I totally agree.

VirtueMart is not suited for date-driven applications.
Well, VirtueMart can do that, but that is not the only requirement for hotel booking.
Availability of rooms has to be put into picture, how that is visualized and how the availability changes are managed.

So it is possible to do it with VirtueMart, but not out of the box, and that is what comes with other systems.

So from the business point of view I would not do it with VirtueMart, just if it's for the point of doing it with VM which I might do.
Or what pro-tech might have done. But since his extension is not visible anywhere, it is de facto not available, because what is not visible in Google, doesn't exist.

I would love to see that extension presented somewhere in a nice way, so I could stop "not doing a booking site" that I always wanted to make in VM, but never had the time to look into, because it is too much work.

Just my 2 cents
Stefan

Please use only stable versions with even numbers for your live shop! Use Alpha versions only if you know what risk you are taking.
