Jomres Features - Single Person Supplements

Many hotel and B&B rooms are under-utilised because they are designed for double occupancy. This often leaves room for single occupancy at a lower rate, which doesn't always make up the shortfall. Jomres allows you to charge a single person supplement to make up this difference.

Jomres is a powerful booking system for hotels and B&Bs. One of its many features is the ability to charge a single person supplement. This is a great way to make up the shortfall if only one guest occupies the room when you charge per person per night.

To add a single person supplement, simply go to Property Configuration-> Supplements tab and set Single person supplements to Yes, and enter the amount you wish to charge. The supplement will be added to the total price when a booking is made for one person.

Jomres is smart. If a booking has two people and the booking includes two rooms, it'll see that there is just one person in each room and in this scenario it'll charge the Single Person Supplement twice, so you'll always be able to maximise your room's potential.

If you have rooms that are under-utilised because they are designed for double occupancy, Jomres can help you make up the difference by charging a single person supplement. This is a great way to increase your revenue and make better use of your rooms.

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 released as a commercial project. Since then Jomres has become the world's oldest online booking plugin for any PHP CMS. It has been used in Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 2.5, 3 & 4 and WordPress 4, 5 & 6.

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. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince 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 Valentina Template Override Package.
