After adding Room Types most important thing is to add Rate Plan(s) and fill it with prices.
It is usual that properties do have different prices during the year. Example: High and Low season, New Year, Weekends etc.. So your prices can vary from 50 to 150 for the same property in different periods every year.
Unless most of the systems where you need to manually enter periods and prices each year (a lot of clicking each time) – with our latest update on rate plans we automatized that as much as it was possible.
How to add a rate plan?
By default system will always create a “Default Price” rate plan. You can always edit it, delete it or create new ones.
To do so, go to Settings > Prices / Restrictions.
Types of rate plans:
To create a new Pricing Plan click on the blue plus icon as in the image below:
In our system, we have 2 types of rate plans.
Manual > Where you add prices on your own
Automatic > It inherits prices from some Manual Rate Plan and adds variation on these prices. Example: 10% lower than Standard Rate.
