NB. For new customers joining us from May 2018, we no longer offer Weekly and Short-Break rates in this format.
You can still achieve Weekly and Short Breaks in the Daily Rate module.
For those of you already using Weekly and Short-Breaks, to add weekly rates go to Setup > Rates > Daily / Weekly / Short Breaks
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WHEN ADDING RATES, THE DATES SHOULD NOT OVERLAP UNLESS THE PARTY SIZE IS DIFFERENT.
- When adding short breaks and weekly breaks, you can’t also add daily rates over the same dates!
- The dates of any band refers to the first and last night of the booking. So, a three day weekend band from Friday to Sunday means your customers arrive on Friday, stay 3 nights and leave on the Monday.
Here’s a video on how to add weekly rates:
To add weekly rates:
- Choose your category and unit, click on the Add Rate button. Choose your Rate Type: Daily, Weekly, Short-Break or Time.
Choose the date range. If you’re doing the entire year for a specific start date (changeover date), make sure you select the appropriate date in the date picker and if you want to add your weekly rates in batches of multiple weeks, click on Show More Options which will display the number of weeks you want to add and the Party Member number this applies to (click here for more information on Party Size Conditions). By default this will apply as ANY party member size for the price per week unless you state otherwise.
Input your Rate (no need add the £ symbol).
Add a note if you want to. You can always add these afterwards to help you quick identify school half term, for example.
Click Add to insert the rate.
Example rates, a simple price per week format.
Adding Short Breaks
Here’s a video on how to add short break rates (and how to add them multiple weeks at a time):
Adding short breaks follows the same process as above, but you will be presented with more options dependant on how you would like the rates to apply.
Adding single short break rates
Choose the start date. In this example, we’ve selected Monday 7th August 2017 and ending Thursday 10th August 2017 for £350 for this break. Click Add to insert the short break rate.
Book Any Day: allows the customers to choose any start day within this date range.
Split Bands: Only use this when inserting batches of short-breaks (see below), this is where the date range can be broken down again by the start day(s).
Adding short break in larger batches
Click on Show More Options to see more options. The example image below has a date range for all of August 2017 where the short break can apply to any Party Member size and wanted the start day to be a Monday for 4 nights and £350.00 per 4-night break.
This batch will insert the batch like this – a band for each Monday in August for 4 nights at £350.00.
Adding short breaks in batches by the percentage
If you want to add short breaks by the percentage based on the cost of a week holiday, do the same as above, but add the total week cost to the right hand side of the Percentage Rate and choose the percentage rate, then this will automatically work out the percentage value for you in the fixed rate area.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WHEN ADDING RATES, THE DATES SHOULD NOT OVERLAP UNLESS THE PARTY SIZE IS DIFFERENT OR YOU ARE USING A CASCADING TARIFF.
