Owner/Housekeeping Notifications

Owner/Housekeeping Notifications

If you are an agency, you are likely to have owners and/or housekeepers of the properties you may wish to notify when you’ve received or cancelled a booking. This article explains at which point the owner notification is sent;

Telephone Bookings: you are asked at the end of the booking process with a tick box.
Online Bookings: the owner and housekeeping notifications are never automatically sent. You will check the booking is OK, proceed to the bookings list, click on the booking and click the notify owner or housekeeping button.

Unit Availability Report

The Unit Availability report allows you to see which units and (sub-units if you are selling pitches) are available within a specific date range.

Copying rates from one unit to another

Copying Rates

To copy rates from one unit to another click on the ‘copy rates to another unit’ button at the top of your finished tariff. The pop up below will appear. Choose which unit you want to copy the current tariff to. If you are copying between tariffs make sure you have created the target tariff before you try to copy the rates.

Please note: Copying rates over to another unit, when you’ve already put in rates for it, will permanently overwrite the rates you put in for that unit previously. So please use this super quick fix with caution!

Weekly Rates by Party Size

Adding Party Size Pricing Conditions

You may want to set ‘party size pricing conditions’ when adding your weekly rates. For example, you may want to charge a a weekly rate dependant on the number of people coming on the holiday.

You can create a weekly price for 1 person booking = your price, 2 people booking = your price, 3 people = your price and so on.  Then, you can set ‘ANY’ to the value above all the party member conditions.

Please note: if you leave a gap in the party member number, let’s say you had 2 people = £50 and then 4 people = £100, and then you made a booking for 3 people, this will look at any appropriate bands below it’s current value.

Adding Daily Rates

Adding Daily Rates

Daily rates is a quick and easy way of adding a nightly price with flexible changeover days.

Please remember:

  • You need to make sure different bands of dates don’t overlap (unless you’re putting in a cascading rate) e.g. if you end one pricing band on the 31st March, then the next one must start on the 1st April, not the 31st March!
  • 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 daily rates:
