[Overview]

This guide explains how to create "Last Minute" and "Early Booking" discount plans, assuming a basic rate plan already exists. These special rate plans will have limited booking dates.

[Details]

Procedure for Creating Last Minute and Early Booking Discounts

For the usual rate plan creation procedure, please refer to the following help document:

Start creating your rate plan from [Management Console] → [Property List] → [Channel Manager] → [Rate Plans] → [Create a Rate Plan].

Select [Create as a New Rate Plan].

After entering the plan name and description, choose [Base on one of my current rate plan] and select the plan that will serve as the basis for the discount.

Set the discount amount by choosing [Cheaper] and specifying the discount rate. Here, it's possible to specify a fixed amount reduction such as "Cheaper (Expensive) XX yen" instead of a percentage.

Editing the Created Plan

From the rate plan list, open the edit screen for the plan you created.

In the [Settings] section, edit [When can Guests book this plan].

  • For last-minute discounts, select [Can book within xx day(s) from check-in(last-minute bookings)] and specify the number of days.

  • For early booking discounts, select [Can book until xx day(s) before check-in(early birds)] and specify the number of days.

▼ You now have a plan that offers a 50% discount for last-minute bookings only.

Once you've created the rate plan, map it to the respective OTA plans you want to synchronize with.
