    How can I create a tour sign up form?

    Asked by Jake  on March 19, 2015 at 01:27 PM


    I am thinking of buying your plugin. I want to make a website for a tour company and wish to have a tool for selecting the date and a selection of time for the tour, and checkout via Paypal.

    Does this theme include everything I need?

    Thanks, Jake

    If I understand you correctly, you would like a form that simply allows your users to select a date and time then sign up for a tour?  That is fairly easy using a "Date" field, a "Time" field and a PayPal field.  Here is a quick test form to show you how it works:

    Thanks, this is almost what I need. There are a few more variables:

    Each tour has a different price (3 tours).

    There are a few normal times for each specific tour each day.

    I just want to collect a deposit and ask guests to pay the rest on arrival.

    I would like to have two prices for child and adult.

    Can guests book multiple tours for multiple days on one transaction?


    Many thanks,

    For the pricing, you can use a calculation widget in your form to handle the prices and pass the value to the payment tool that you want to use. Please take a look at this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form and also this one: http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field.

    For the booking part we have some widgets that you can use:

    Date Reservation
    Appointment Slots

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you have further questions. Thank you.

    Thanks, but I am concerned however that it all looks complex to set up.


    If I pay the monthly fee, can someone set it up for me?

    Hi Jake,

    We do not offer the services of creating the complete form. You can however create your form and we would be happy to assist you with the various aspects of your form.

    You can create your form to have your desired look and pricing and we would be happy to assist you with having the calculation passed on to PayPal.

    Please provide us with the link to the form once that has been done.

    Thank you.
