Seasonal rates

Last Updated: Oct 19, 2018 02:13PM CEST
In the Seasonal rates section, it is possible to add rules that override your Basic rates and conditions.
 

Seasonal rates

Many Property Managers wish to increase prices at different levels when demand is higher for their listing. This may be for summer periods (for summer properties), winter periods (for ski properties) or for various holiday periods and when special events are being held nearby.

You can create Seasonal price increases (or decreases) for defined periods. For these periods you are able to set the following parameters which will override your Basic rates:
 
  • Season name: Use a descriptive name (including the year) to describe your season. For example: Summer 2017.
  • Start date: Choose the date that you wish to start the period - this defines the first booking night where your Seasonal price increase/decrease rule will apply.
  • End date: Choose the date that you wish to end the period - this defines the last booking night (*) where your Seasonal price increase/decrease rule will apply.
(*)  Your seasonal rates will be applied until the night before the End date
  • Basic night: Enter the nightly rate for a night in this period (note: will apply to Friday and Saturday nights unless you enter a Weekend night price).
  • Weekend night: Enter the nightly rate for each Friday and Saturday night in this period if you wish to charge a different rate for the weekend.
  • Minimum stay: The minimum number of nights for a booking in this season. 
  • Maximum stay: The maximum number of nights for a booking in this season. 
  • Check-in daysThe days of the week that a Guest may select for check-in for a booking in this season.
  • Allow combination with Longer stay discount: By checking this box, we'll apply your longer stay percentage based discounts to bookings of more than 7, 14, 21, 28 nights during this season. 
 

Adding a Seasonal price rule

Ensure your Seasonal price rules are set for at least 12 months in advance.
  1. On the Seasonal rates page, click Add seasonal price rules.
  2. Enter the rates and rules for your season using the notes above if required.
  3. Save rule
  4. You will see cards for each of the Seasonal price rules that you have added.
As a final check that your Seasonal price rules are set correctly, use the Preview listing feature to check some dates as a Guest would and control that your Payouts are calculated as you expected.

Note: Seasonal rates do not apply automatically every year. You need to create seasonal rates rules for each year.

Editing a Seasonal price rule

  1. On the Seasonal rates page, click the Edit button on the Seasonal price rule card that you wish to edit.
  2. Update the rates and rules you wish to edit.
  3. Save rule
  4. Your cards will be updated to reflect your change.
 

Deleting a Seasonal price rule

  1. On the Seasonal rates page, click the Delete icon  on the Seasonal price rule card that you wish to delete.
  2. Confirm your action.
  3. Your cards will be updated to reflect your change.

Note: You do not need to delete Seasonal price rules in the past, they will be aged off automatically over time - however you do need to create new Seasonal price rules each year.


No Seasonal rates

If your Basic rates apply all year round, please confirm this so we don't bug you about updating your Seasonal rates.
  1. On the Seasonal rates page, check the box next to "I don't have seasonal rates - my basic rates are valid all year round."
  2. Click Next.
  3. Your Basic rates will be applied for the whole year.

Note: Please make sure that your rates are correct to avoid any unnecessary cancellation due to incorrect rates.
