Adding cancellation fees to reservations

Posted on Updated on

The new version of the WebReserv Booking System has been released. The new version includes the ability to calculate cancellation fees.

To setup a cancellation fee or percentage, go to Setup – Business Information – Changes & Cancellations.

You can enter up to 3 rules for your business. Each rule has a time (prior to arrival date/time), penalty fee or %, and an indication of whether a customer can cancel the reservation directly.

In the example below, the cancellation penalty is 100% if cancelled less than 1 day in advance and 25% if cancelled more than 1 day but less than 7 days in advance. There is no cancellation penalty if the reservation is cancelled more than 7 days in advance. Note the last rule of 365 days. This is added to allow customers to cancel the reservation more than 7 days in advance.
