Halio is a powerful WordPress plugin for any business that provides transport as a service. It facilitates the price estimation, booking and payment of journeys. Halio has been professionally designed to provide a high quality user experience both for customers and admins.

Halio allows for the creation of multiple, complex pricing conditions to accommodate for any situation. You can charge based on distance, time or occupants either individually or in combination. Alternatively if you want to charge a fixed price for certain locations, that it possible with geo-location based pricing conditions. You can also add uber-style surge charges, for example multiplying fares by 1.5x in rush hour.

Because Halio is compatible with WooCommerce, it allows for a wide variety of options and customisations. Customers can pay by Card, Cash, PayPal or more. It is up to you how you customise the experience.

Geolocation Based Pricing Conditions

Draw the location you want a pricing rule to apply to on the map. If the user is picked up within your defined area they will be charged the specified price.

Create Your Own Pricing Structure

Each vehicle has unique charges per passenger, mile/kilometer or minute. Combined with surge pricing and geolocation pricing conditions Halio allows you to create a truly unique pricing structure.

Multilingual Ready

.pot files are provided to allow for easy translation. Languages currenly supported in the Halio back-end are listed above.

Uber-style Surge Pricing

Charge an increased amount for using your service at certain times of the day.


Almost everything your clients will interact with can be customised, from the logo at the top of the form, to the maximum distance you travel for fares.

Custom Checkout Fields

If there are extra fields you require from your customers – such as flight number or number of child seats – you can add a custom field on the checkout page.

Future-proof Code

Halio was designed by an industry professional with years of experience. The code powering it is well structured and simple to edit.

Draggable Map Markers

When the user location is plotted on the map, the location can be fine-tuned by dragging the map marker. It will be shown in the admin area that the user has customised the location.

Vehicle Avilability Time

Vehicles can be made available/unavailable at specific times of the day, or days of the week. If a vehicle is requested when it’s unavailable a customisable error message is shown.

Efficient Code

Halio was designed with speed and efficiency in mind. No matter the number of pricing conditions, customers will always get their quote in a matter of seconds.

WooCommerce Integration

Halio is fully compatible with WooCommerce allowing you to take payments easily from card, PayPal or cash.

Lifetime Updates

Halio is constantly getting new features. You will get the full benefit of all these features for no extra cost.

Responsive Form

The booking form is responsive and looks great on all devices.


Halio comes complete with a calendar so you can visualise all your bookings. Hovering over bookings will display all essential information quickly.

Intuitive Admin Area

The admin area is very intuitive with helper text explaining what settings do next to fields and a simple layout.

Intelligent Code

Halio will keep track of bookings to ensure no vehicle is overbooked.



Halio provides a wide array of settings allowing you to customise the experience to your own needs. Error messages, labels and logos can be customised completely.

Geolocation Pricing Conditions

Geolocation Pricing Conditions allow you to draw a specific region on a map that you want a custom price to be charged. For example you could draw Leeds and London. If the user is picked up/dropped off within the region then you can either charge a fixed price, increase the fare by a multiplier or add an amount to the fare.

Draggable Markers

Sometimes your customers will be at an address that isn’t available in the Google autocomplete or they simply want more accuracy than a textual address can achieve. To solve this, the markers are draggable and once repositioned the quote will be automatically recalculated.

The address field is then prepended with ‘Dropped pin:’ so you can see in the admin area if you need to go to a specific location.

Draggable markers are disabled for the origin or destination respectively if either uses ‘Fixed Addresses’ which are shown further down.

Custom Fields

Say, for example, you run an airport shuttle company and you want all your customers to provide their flight number. To do this, you can add a custom checkout field and make it required.

This integrates with WooCommerce to provide a sleek look.

Vehicle Availability Times

Vehicles can be made available only at certain times of the day, or completely unavailable on a given day. Each vehicle can have unique availability times.

If the vehicle is unavailable a customisable error message will display in the quote form.

Fixed Addresses

If your business only picks up/drops off from certain destinations then you can make the user choose from a predefined list of addresses instead of letting them type it themselves.

Acceptance Region

Acceptance Regions allow you to define an area where you want to allow people to be picked up from. If someone tries to book a job and they are picked up outside the acceptance region, a customisable error message will be displayed. This feature is disabled by default.
