    The Premium plan of Zoho Bookings is the most affordable plan for you. You can add staff in the same plan, and not move to a higher plan just to add staff. Check out Zoho Bookings pricing page. Acuity counts both staff and location as calendars. You have to use them either as six staff at one location, three staff at two locations, or in other such combinations.
