Planyo overview

What is Planyo?

Our company was founded in 1997 in Switzerland and we have a long experience in creating professional software solutions that you can trust. Thanks to its strong multilingual support, Planyo is used worldwide by all kinds of businesses taking online reservations with a wide variety of resources offered for rental.

The planyo online booking system is used, amongst others, by businesses offering vacation properties, car rentals, hotels, driving schools, yacht charters, doctors and therapists, conference rooms, tennis courts, car parks, event tickets or any other bookings you could imagine.
If you work with a very large infrastructure, you can also group a number of single planyo sites into a meta site.

The first 30 days are always free with no obligations and no need to enter your credit card number. Our technical support is free. If you don’t like what you see after the trial, move on to another solution. We never require long-term commitment, before or after the trial.

Planyo uses very secure and redundant infrastructure from the market leader Amazon AWS. Our service will be available even when an entire datacenter goes down.

A must-have for any type of rental business.

Pros
This software is extremely customizable for any type of rental, whether it's a tangible item (e.g., renting cameras to the public) or a service (e.g., managing a vacation rental). The customer service is also excellent and support tickets are always answered very quickly.

Cons
Sometimes the software is actually too complicated and I find it difficult to navigate amongst different item management screens. At times I'm worried that I'm editing more than one item when I don't want to be, or in other instances I do want changes to apply globally but it can be tough to figure out how to do that.

Review Source: Capterra

A highly customizable booking engine and channel manager with resource-specfic credit-card merchant account processing. Seamless and professional automated customer notifications. Powerful and dynamic pricing.

Pros
The notification system is extremely powerful, and the numerous plugins for channel managing provide peace of mind over double-bookings. A unique feature is the possibility of having one merchant account per resource for credit-card processing. The system is reasonably priced and modular.

Cons
Reporting engine is lacklustre. The standard user interface is overly complicated. Although the pricing engine is powerful, there's no way of easily displaying prices without manually entering start/end dates/times. Integration according to our specfic needs was complex and required a third-party. A couple of unanounced system changes were made with a business impact.

Due to Corona only two of our snooker tables currently can be used. Therefore we needed a tool to make reservations for the tables. Integration into our Joomla website took me 5 min, the configuration about 1 h. Absolutely perfect!

Pros
Just integrated the system in our snooker website (Joomla) for reservations the snooker tables (in times of Corona). I was really surprised, how easy the Joomla integration worked. And there are more helpful features available, than expected. Planyo turned out to be the perfect tool for us. U did a great job!

Cons
It was a little bit hard to find orientation in the admin area...

The experience is solid, good. We did not find better rental software fitting our needs.

Pros
Planyo has so many features, that every crazy idea we had could be done with few clicks in Planyo.

Cons
The pros are the cons: The complexity of the possibilities by Planyo gives you chances to "do a few clicks" here and there. You might end to not understand every detail the software offers you. So you really have to go deeply into it and try to understand the complexity behind Planyo. Some support pages are not updated at the same moment as the software has been. We run into some hidden limitations (number of resources). Those limitations should be published open according to our opinion.

You can freely switch between the two models. Off-season months are free. Technical support is also free.
