minimum length of reservation

New feature: Handling short bookings

Posted on Updated on

With, it’s always been possible to specify a minimum length on a booking.  Bookings shorter than the specified time would not be allowed. The new short reservation rule makes it possible to allow bookings shorter than the minimum time, but the rate will be calculated as if the booking was for the minimum time. To change this rule, go to Setup – Business information – Advanced options.

Note that availability screens always show the actual availability, regardless of how the rate is calculated. For example, if a booking is made for 1 day and the minimum is 3 days, the rate will be calculated for 3 days, but the availability screen will still show the booking for one day.

To verify your short reservation settings, go to Setup – Rates – Rate Calculator. The Rate Calculator provides a complete breakdown of the rate calculation.
