This snippet was last revised Jun 14, 2016, so maybe it was correct at that time, but I'd guess this didn't really work back then either, mostly because of the simplistic WP_Query args, as they don't account for the primary objective of an availability search: get the booking products that have availability from start to end

Thanks for your feedback.
Please understand that this gist was always intended to serve as a example, like I stated on the comments it is almost pseudo-code.

It did worked fine, it still works, however it was a specific project where this was enough.

You are correct as this does not really do what it should, sadly it is not as simple as it looks to accommodate for all cases (if it where WCBookings would have a function for it ;) ).

Do you have any tips for improvement?
I'd really like to improve it.

For your convenience, I've converted the above into an easy to use shortcode.
