When would I need to use this special rate override?
If you would like to override your rates for guests who are booking last minute, you could use this feature.
It allows you to increase or decrease your rates for guests who are booking less than a set amount of days or months before arrival. This could be useful if you would like to offer guests a special rate if they're booking last minute in order to fill up your last available rooms, which can be particularly useful during off-peak season when you haven't received as many bookings.
What are the periods of validity?
This special rate override will only apply if someone is booking less than the set amount of nights before arrival - usually this would be within a week or less.
If you setup a last minute override with 7 days as the requirement, the guest has to setup their arrival date 7 days or less from today for the special rate to show. However, if the guest is trying to book for 7 days or more from today, the override will not apply.
