While using WP Travel plugin, you may sometime face a problem where booking/enquiry emails and contact form details may not be sent to the user. One reason for this could be that a mail() function may not have been working because your host provider may have disabled the mail() function.  So here is the thing you can do.

  • At first, you have to make sure your host has enabled the PHP mail functions.
  • Secondly, you have to do an SMTP setup using the plugin given below for the mail to function.


If you face difficulty while doing the above-given methods then kindly contact your server host and figure out the issue.

If everything is fine regarding the server then please once verify the issue by deactivating all third party plugins and activating only WP Travel (Pro as well) as third party plugins conflict can be one of the leading causes for the uncertain behavior of your site.
