Children Prices
This page explains how to create prices for children.

Use

How many children are allowed in a room is defined in {{#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) PROPERTIES -> ROOMS -> SETUP.

RATES :- To set a price for children go to RATES open the rate (or create a new one) and enter the children price in the field "Extra Child". You can also set if the children price applies on its own or if the price of an adult is changed additionally.

DAILY PRICES :- Extra Person/Extra Child price can be set in the Daily Price Setup. Extra Child Prices can not be sent to the channels.

Examples and Use Cases

Example 1 - your children price applies to a specific age group

If your children price applies to a specific age group go to {{#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) BOOKING ENGINE -> PROPERTY BOOKING PAGE -> DEVELOPERS "Custom Text" and exchange the default text for children:

Children|Children under 10 Child|Child under 10

You can use the descriptive areas of the booking page to give further explanation on how your children prices work.

In rates you can set one price for children. If you have prices for different age groups you can set them as upsell items with a negative value.

Example: A room costs €100 for one guest and €50 for each additional guests. One child can stay per room. Following discounts for children apply:

  • children under 2 years are free
  • €20.00 discount for children 2-6 years
  • €10.00 discount for children 6-14 years
  • children over 14 pay full prices

Go to {{#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) -> PROPERTIES-> ROOMS -> SETUP and set

  • Maximum Adults = Number of adults you allow
  • Maximum Children = 1

Go to {{#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) -> BOOKING ENGINE-> UPSELL ITEMS and create one upsell item for each option with following settings:

  • for children under 2:
    • Type = optional
    • Amount = -50 (the price for the extra person)
    • Per = child
    • Period = daily
    • Description = children under 2 years are free (for example)
  • for children 2-6 years:
    • Type = optional
    • Amount = -20
    • Per = child
    • Period = daily
    • Description = Discount for children 2-6 years (for example)
  • for children 6-14 years:
    • Type = optional
    • Amount = -10
    • Per = child
    • Period = daily
    • Description = Discount for children under 6-14 years (for example)
  • for children 14+
    • Type = optional
    • Amount = -0
    • Per = child
    • Period = daily
    • Description = No discount for children over 14 (for example)

If more than one child can stay in the room:

Go to {{#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) -> PROPERTIES -> ROOMS -> SETUP and set

  • Maximum Adults = Use Guests
  • Maximum Children = Dont ask

Go to {{#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) -> BOOKING ENGINE -> UPSELL ITEMS and create one upsell item for each option with following settings:

  • for children under 2:
    • Type = optional qty
    • Amount = -50 (the price for the extra person)
    • Per = room
    • Period = daily
    • Description = children under 2 years are free (for example)
  • for children 2-6 years:
    • Type = optional qty
    • Amount = -20
    • Per = room
    • Period = daily
    • Description = Discount for children 2-6 years (for example)
  • for children 6-14 years:
    • Type = optional qty
    • Amount = -10
    • Per = room
    • Period = daily
    • Description = Discount for children under 6-14 years (for example)
  • for children 14+
    • Type = optional qty
    • Amount = -0
    • Per = room
    • Period = daily
    • Description = No discount for children over 14 (for example)

Example 2: You have Adult Occupancy Pricing and Children are FREE.

Go to PRICING -> DAILY PRICE SETUP -> ADD NEW DAILY PRICE

  • Price For = Up to 1 person (or the minimum number for your base price)
  • Extra Person Price = set the price for each additional Adult
  • Extra Child Price = 0.01 (Can not be zero)

Go to {{#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) PROPERTIES -> BOOKING RULES -> PRICING -> PRICE ROUNDING set = -0.10, this will remove the 0.01 price for the Extra Child in the Daily Price Setup.
