Magento Vs. WordPress / Woocommerce Booking Solutions

Below is a basic comparison of our Magento 2 and Woocommerce / WordPress rental solutions. Both are different and we can’t say that one is better than the other, however for most clients we recommend the Woocommerce / WordPress solution. 

We have developed the Magento 1.x and Magento 2 solution for a few years now, but found that Magento is slow to customize and that many clients already had WordPress sites that they wanted to integrate with. Thus we developed a custom WordPress / Woocommerce booking system based off of some already-existing plugins.
