Change to Per Person (variable) settings

Posted on Updated on

We are pleased to announce that we have released a new version of the WebReserv booking system. The new version allows for up different pricing levels for up to 25 people when using variable rates. As part of this update, there has been a minor change to the way the system calculates the rate. If you are using Per Person (variable) in your setup, we recommend that you review these changes and update your settings if necessary.

When a room/rental/ tour is set to Per Person (variable) as the rate calculation type, the system will pick the rate from the column that matches the number of persons. If no rate is defined for this number of persons, the system will try with a lower number of persons until a rate is found.

Say for example that you have entered a rate for 1, 2 and 3 persons as shown below.

If a reservation is made for 2 adults, the rate will be $55.00. If a reservation is made for 3 adults, the rate will be $80.00. However, if a reservation is made for 4, 5 or 6 adults, the rate will be calculated as $80.00 as there is no rates defined for 4, 5 and 6 adults.

If the rate per person is the same regardless of the number of persons, we recommend that you change the rate type to Per Person (flat).
