bed and breakfast booking system
The WebReserv system now has two ways for your bed & breakfast, vacation rental, or campground to set up a weekend stay rule. If you require at least a 2 night minimum over a weekend, then you can now select between “Reservation Must Be At Least” or “Weekend Stay Required“. The difference between them is important, and we will explain each option below.
In the system to define a weekend restriction rule, you will first want to set your Weekend definitions. The system defaults to a weekend being Friday/Saturday, but it can be adjusted by going to Setup – Business Information – Advanced Options.
We have added a new type of rate categories to the system. The new rate categories are easier to use and more flexible. This section describes the benefits of the new rate categories and how to start using them.
What’s the difference?
The new rate categories can now be for weekdays, weekends and holidays which is typical for hotels, bed & breakfasts, vacation rentals etc.:
The rate categories can also be set up to be specific for a certain period of time, regardless of the day of the week. This rate setup is common for boat rentals, car rentals, RV rentals etc.:
How do I use the new rate categories
If your WebReserv account was set up before November 10, 2010, you will need to enable the new rate categories. Go to Setup – Rates – Rate Categories and click the link Click here to enable new rate categories. When you click the link, a number of standard categories will automatically be added to your setup. You can then adjust the new rate categories as necessary.
How do I start using the rate categories
Once you have enabled the new rate categories, all new rate lists will automatically be using the new rate categories whereas old rate lists will continue to use the old rate categories.
We recommend that you try out a few rates using the rate tester to ensure that the system is calculating your rates the way you want it.
