Setting Minimum Stay Requirements during the Holidays

Posted on Updated on

The Holidays are upon us and this is a great time of year where people want to enjoy themselves to the fullest.  This can often mean a get away to a quaint bed & breakfast or cabin in the mountains.  Most businesses in the lodging industry require specific minimum stay requirements over the holidays.  If you use WebReserv as your Bed & Breakfast or Vacation Rental booking system, then you can easily manage minimum holiday stay requirements.  Here’s how:

Setting up Holiday Hours

Log into your WebReserv Account.

Go to Setup – Business Information.  Click on Opening Hours & Holidays.  To update the Holiday hours, click on Edit Holidays.

 On this page, you can set up specific holidays including the dates and if there is a minimum stay requirement for the room option.  The system even allows you to set a different minimum stay for different room choices, if desired.

Setting Minimum Holiday Hours

When you are done with the setup, click Save.

When a customer makes a booking for any of the holiday dates set in this section, they will have to meet the minimum stay requirement in order to book.   If a customer books for less time, they can still make the booking, but the rate will be adjusted to meet the minimum stay time.

In the example below, a customer booked the Suite for 3 nights in December.  The reservation was allowed, but in the rates it indicates an adjustment to 5 nights since the dates fall within the Christmas Holiday that was set up by the business.
