New feature – Minimum or required days

Posted on Updated on

A new feature on makes it easy to specify minimum or required days, for example, that a product is required to be reserved for Saturday (or Saturday-Sunday) if it’s reserved on a Friday. This rule is used commonly in the hospitality industry (hotels, motels, bed & breakfasts) as well as RV rentals. To set required days, go to setup – product – reservation rules.

Note that this setting is different from the required days on the rate setup. This setting controls the minimum reservation requirement for a product.  The required days on the rate setup specifies whether a rate is valid for a certain day (or days). For example, if you allow single-day reservations, but provide a discount for Friday-Sunday reservations, the best way to do this is to create a rate list specifically for Friday-Sunday reservations.

The screenshot below shows the setup screen for the required days.
