Joomla & WordPress Online Booking Engine
and Property Management Solution

How can Jomres help you?

For everybody

Jomres allows you to take direct bookings on your own website, but it's not just a booking engine, it's much more than that.

It is free and 100% Open Source and fully-integrated with your choice of Joomla or WordPress. You can create an unlimited number of booking websites, accessible to customers on any device, in any language in just minutes.

Suitable for anything from single property sites ( like a hotel, villa or B&B ) right up to huge multi-property sites where you can list hundreds or even thousands of hotels, villas and apartments.

How does it benefit you?

The first major benefit of our booking engine is that the Core system is free. You can download it and install it on your site, and you will immediately have an online booking engine with many free features.

If you find that there are features that you want to add, there's a good chance we have a plugin that does the job already. To get access to all 160+ plugins you will need a download and support key which is easy to get, and gives you complete access to all of the plugins.

The second major benefit of Jomres over our competitors is that the software is stored on your web server, not ours. This means that you can setup and configure the software however you like. Want to change the layout? Not a problem. Want to add a funky new widget to your site? That's fine, Jomres integrates into both Wordpress and Joomla so you can take advantage of the thousands of plugins that those CMSs offer, plus the millions of web developers who are skilled at setting up and customising those systems.

For Property Owners

Once you've set the site up with your booking engine, apart from hosting and payment services then you can use it forever at no further cost to you. Do you want the security of knowing that there are experts around when you need them? Then opt into a subscription license which, for a flat fee of 29€ per month gives you continuous unlimited access to plugins and support.

Channel Manager functionality allows you to synchronise property availability across multiple OTAs via our partnership with Beds24 Channel Manager.

Property Managers

From it's very first day Jomres was designed as a multi-property system for both villas and hotels. We have spent years perfecting the system to ensure that you can easily navigate between your properties with the minimum amount of fuss. There are a variety of search plugins that help your guests find the properties they need and registered users are remembered for the next time they come to book on your site. Security is our highest priority, every property manager can only manage the properties they have created or been given access to.


The system is modular and supports overrides for both themes and templates. Customisation is easy, with html and the code firmly separated. Want to modify how just a small part of how the system works and still be able to update in the future? No problem, we have designed it so that you can do just that.

The Jomres Quickstarts are available for both Joomla and Wordpress and come in both single and multi-property flavours. These Quickstarts allow you to build complete booking websites in the time it takes you to think up a new password for your site.


There are a variety of ways you can use the system to create your own online booking portal. You can charge property managers a flat subscription fee that gives them access to different services, or commission based on the value of the bookings they've taken, or even a combination of them both. An alternative to charging commission is to use our Stripe plugin (available at no extra cost once you have a license) which takes a percentage of the value of the booking when the booking is made and deposits that direct into your account.

Getting paid has never been easier.

There are no adverts, no commission fees and no hidden costs for "optional" extras that aren't really optional.


What makes us different?

Unlike other booking engines, Jomres is self-hosted, meaning that the software is installed on your web server, not ours, giving you complete control.

It's Open Source, meaning that you can change anything you want, with absolutely no limitations whatsoever.

The Jomres plugin and theme eco-system provides a vast array of functionality without having to touch the code. We provide over 160 plugins at no extra cost and the theme you see in our demos, while third-party developers also provide plugins and themes.

What's new?

Jomres is the only self-hosted booking engine with a REST API and Webhooks, giving you unparalleled power to interact with the entire universe of Web services. If you plan to build the next Airbnb, Expedia or, you have come to the right place.

  • Testimonial 1

    Beyond any other Joomla booking component. It can be built in many ways and flavors... They offer quick-start package - installation and initial setup is easy. More experienced users can build and customize from the scratch... Very detailed documentation. If something is not clear they will happily answer it on forums.

  • Testimonial 2

    Once I understood the makeup of Jomres, functionality became easy. It's the BMW and Mercedez Benz of the Villas and Hotel booking system... Even though I am a 68-year-old neophyte, I was able to figure it out. Youtube videos really helped... Even though I am a 68-year-old neophyte, I was able to figure it out.

  • Testimonial 3

    Highly flexible online booking and property management system (also with REST API and Webhooks!) that can you can host on your own server... Very easy to get started with the Quickstart Packages. Certainly a bit of time involved if you want more than a single property installation... The support is fast & excellent. Thank you so much!... Very detailed user manual where all configuration options for frontend and backend are explained.

  • Testimonial 4

    Outstanding. It does everything I need and a whole lot more so I do not see the point in using something else. Also open and customisable... Put effort in to get the best out of it but well worth it... Cannot remember when I last had to raise a support ticket. Mostly sorted any issues by looking at the forum/manual, also regular updates.

  • Testimonial 5

    Best reservation/booking system out there. Bar None!... Easy to use, intuitive... I can't say enough about these guys/gals. Support is phenomenal, quick, and very helpful. They honestly enjoy helping their members!... Thorough documentation on the main component, as well as each and every plugin available for additional features.

    Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

    As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

    Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

    Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
