Activating Last Minute Rates

Last Minute Rates allow operators to be included in a last minute deals page, which displays the last 14 days of their availability with either the current rate or a discounted rate if the operator wishes to do so.

All operators who would like to be included in the Last Minute Rates search page have to be a Gold Medal Operator, which means that they 100% guarantee their availability and rates.

Step 1- Activating the Operator

All operators that are included in the Last Minute Rates list must have Gold Medal Operator status.

To check or activate an operators Gold Medal Status, from the main menu click onto Operator Search, then type in the operators name, click onto Update other details, and check to see if the Gold Medal box has been ticked. If this is not ticked then the operator will not appear in the search. Please note that each operator has the ability to chose and control if they are a Gold Medal or 24 Hour operator. This control is found in their console, under the heading Online Booking Control.

The next step is to login to the operator’s console and check to see that the operator has activated at least one of their rooms to be included in the last minute rates page.

Click onto List of Units / Rooms and Rates and then onto the Room/Unit name. Make sure that the Last Minute Inclusion tick box has been ticked. If the operator would like to offer a last minute discount rate, stay on this page and scroll down to where the rates are displayed. The very last box on the right hand side of each rate is the Last Minute Discount percentage box. I.e.10. Please do not enter a % character. In here you can enter in the discount percentage on offer. If the operator does not want to offer a discount, leave the box blank and the current rate will be displayed. Press save once you have made the changes.
