If you're shopping for a calendar scheduling software, or perhaps looking for a Calendly alternative, then you've come to the right place. In this article, we will break down Calendly pricing and features, and we'll cover each plan in detail - what it offers and what it lacks. We'll also give you our verdict on which plan is the best value for money. Whether you own a small business or are working with a large team, by the end of this post our goal is to help you decide whether or not Calendly is the best option for you.

Calendly Pricing and Plans Explained

Calendly has five plans with the first one being the Basic plan which is free. Their other plans are:

  • Essentials - starts at $8 per user, per month
  • Professional - starts at $12 per user, per month
  • Teams -  starts at $16 per user, per month, and
  • Enterprise - intended for teams of 30 people or more - no public pricing available for this plan. You’ll have to contact the company for a quote.

Now that we’ve addressed Calendly pricing, what’s the difference between the various plans?


The Basic plan is free and includes one calendar connection per person. This plan is the most limited and is intended for personal use and for solopreneurs working for themselves. You can schedule unlimited meetings with the Basic plan. However, you can only create one type of meeting. For example, let’s say you’re a freelance graphics designer. You can create a consultation meeting or a brainstorming meeting, but you can’t have both. Therefore, you would have to create a more generic name for your meetings as a catch all meeting type.



  • It’s free
  • Unlimited meetings
  • Automated notifications
  • Enough to get you started with scheduling meetings
  • Customizable booking link


  • You won’t be able to send customizable email notifications and reminders
  • No text messaging options for meeting attendees
  • No option to include a cancellation policy
  • No payment pages or redirects to your website
  • Can’t remove Calendly branding
  • No app integrations


This plan is intended for incredibly small teams, and limits you to two calendar connections per person. With the Essentials plan you get everything in Basic and a few additional features.



  • Unlimited active event types
  • Ability to create group events
  • You can email reminders and follow-ups to your attendees
  • You can add links to your confirmation pages


  • You still won’t be able to send customizable email notifications and reminders or text messages
  • Still no options for automated workflows
  • You won’t be able to redirect to your website, although you can finally add a link to payment options on your confirmation page
  • You still can’t remove Calendly branding or integrate with other apps


The Professional plan is intended for medium sized teams, and allows you to connect 6 calendars per person. This plan comes with everything in the Basic and Essentials plans, and unlocks in-demand features such as redirects to payment and booking pages on your website, customizable notifications and text messaging, and the ability to create automated workflows.



  • Unlimited meetings and unlimited active event types
  • Ability to offer select times to your invitees for one-time events
  • More customization and redirect options
  • Multiple reminder options for meetings via text and email
  • You can integrate your account with more than 700 apps with Zapier


  • The Professional account doesn’t connect to Salesforce
  • No single-sign on options
  • Still can’t create round robin events
  • Customer support can take up to three hours


Though still intended for medium sized teams, this plan unlocks almost all of Calendly’s features with the exception of single sign-on and advanced security options.



  • All app integrations unlocked including Salesforce integrations
  • Unlimited meetings and active meeting types
  • You can customize your colors and add branding to your booking page
  • Round robin scheduling unlocked


  • Customer support can take up to three hours
  • Limited to 6 calendar connections per person
  • It’s $16-$20 per user, per month!



We can’t speak to all of the pros and cons of the Enterprise plan in large part due to the fact that the Calendly pricing for these plans is not public. However, we can say that with this plan, all of Calendly’s current features are unlocked and member support is expedited - in other words, if you have a problem, your email support tickets are moved to the top of the queue. Whether or not this plan is worth it is unknown, but if the pricing structure of the other plans is any indication of what Enterprise costs may be, we’re guessing it’s more than most businesses will want to pay.
