AddRoomsRates

 

Use the tables shown below to complete each section as shown, and click Save Changes at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

Room Setup

Room Type *

Enter the Room or Rates Packages name

Should this room type display for online bookings?

Ticking the Display on website for online bookings? tick box will activate this room / rate package for display on any linked Booking Centre's website.

 

We recommend to switch this on once you have completed the full setup of your room / rate package.

How many actual rooms do you have?

Enter the number of this "type" of accommodation

Enter the maximum quantity available for this room / rate package when none are sold.

 

This will set your default availability for this room / rate package, however the Availability section will advise how to block out rooms / availability where required.

Room Configuration

Select the most appropriate Room Configuration from the dropdown list.

 

Note:  the options presented have been set by your Mothership Booking Centre.  If none of the options presented match your room / rate package, please contact your Mothership Booking Centre.  They can add further options if required.

Link Availability

This option is used to link the availability of this room / rate package with the availability of another room / rate package.

 

This is more commonly used in the event an accommodation provider has (say) two different rate packages with unique inclusions that utilise the same 'room type'.  As a result, the availability between the two packages can be linked to ensure there are no overbooking's for that same 'room type'.

 

A more detailed explanation on how to Link Availability can be found here.

Maximum Number of Guests *

Maximum number of people that this accommodation holds

Enter the total maximum number of PAX this room / rate packages can cater for.

Current Bedding Configurations (optional)

This section is optional.  It will allow you to setup multiple bedding configurations for your room / rate package (if any), inclusive of any additional costs associated with that bedding configuration if selected upon purchase by the Booking Centre Staff or Booking Centre website (where available)

The Bedding Description is automatically generated when you select your Bedding Types and describes the default descriptions, however you are able to rename your bedding configuration to anything you wish.

Additional Cost

If the bedding configuration you are setting up incurs any additional costs (e.g. for linen), add the cost in this field e.g. 25.00

Per Night?

Tick this box if the additional cost is to be charged on a per night basis.  If not ticked, the additional cost will be charged only once for the guest's entire stay.

The default Bedding Configurations is the one that will be automatically selected as the default when they are presented to the guest.
