After creating rate plans, you need to set up rates. Each day with a price set is available for your guests. If you do not set a price for a day, then you do not offer rooms with this rate plan on this day.
Rate plans can derive their prices from another rate plan or define their own prices. With derived rates, the prices only need to be managed on one rate plan. The prices for all derived rate plans are calculated based on the pricing rules. This is useful if a rate plan is a variant of another rate plan: one with a different room type, cancellation policy, or included services. apaleo allows for 3 levels of derived prices.
You can specify a price difference, as an absolute or a percent value. The difference can be negative or positive, allowing to give discounts or to add supplements on the base rate plan.
Prices can only be set for rate plans which are not derived. Click on Set prices to open a dialog to enter prices for a specific time range.
You can either define one price for the entire time range or define prices per weekday.
The price set is always the price for single occupancy. The prices for additional occupancies will be calculated based on the surcharges defined in the rate plan settings.
Manage rate restrictions for one day
Click on a rate in the calendar to open the rate details. Check Activate restrictions, to set closed and length-of-stay restrictions. For non-derived rates, you can also set the price.
Manage restrictions for multiple rate plans
To set restrictions for many rate plans or days in one step, you can select them all and then set restrictions. Choose Restrictions from the context menu, and enter the time range and restrictions.
