WP Rentals is a WordPress booking platform which allows you to publish & offer listings (properties or objects) for daily or hourly rent. You can allow users to signup and publish their own listings, while you are making a commission for each submission or for each confirmed booking.
Each listing supports: a default price per night (or per hour), a different price per night for bookings over 7 days (or custom price per hour for over 7h booking), a different price per night for bookings over 30 days (or a different price per hour for over 30h), a different price per night (or hour) for weekend days, minimum booking days (or hours), price for extra guest, cleaning and city fee (with option to calculate these by night, by guest or by guest and night), security deposit, taxes value, early bird discount in % for bookings made in advance, and more.
WP Rentals supports hourly booking OR daily booking. Check this demo for hourly booking – https://skirent.wprentals.org/ and this new demo for mixt booking: hourly or daily – https://office.wprentals.org
The theme supports custom price per night for a specific period (including custom price per night for 7d+ or 30d+ bookings, weekend nights, a minimum number of nights, price for extra guests, turnover days). For booking options, the owner can enable (or disable) the option to calculate the booking fee by the number of guests and price per guest. There is also the possibility to set changeover days (check-in OR check-in and check-out changeover days). All these can be easily tested using the demo account below.

For each listing the owner can add his own extra booking elements and set for each a price by night, by guest, as a single fee or by night and guest. This is managed from the front end submit form – Price details.
You can sync your calendar availability/bookings via Icalendar feed from another platform that supports iCal and export your listing iCal feed to other websites compatible with this system. You can set to import as many Ical feeds as you wish.
Admin can accept payments via Paypal, Stripe or Wire Transfer (offline payments) for publishing new listings and/or a service fee for each confirmed booking. Admin can set a Deposit value and a Service Fee value (these can be either in % or as fixed value amount, which deducts from total booking value). This value must be paid to site admin before a booking is confirmed, even if the owner approves a booking request. The payment is done by the user submitting the booking request.
The theme comes with a private internal message system monitored by admin that handles all messages between registered users. Contact information on the owner profile page is available only to users who have a confirmed booking. Messages can be sent as registered or not registered users.
