Prices

  • We can only send availability if you have set up prices which are activated for this channel. This tutorial gives general information how to set prices for channels.
  • You need a price for the full occupancy.
  • Prices for "Extra Person", "Extra child" and discounts set in the "Discounts" tab of the rates can not be sent.
  • If you use daily prices with "Extra Person" prices your daily price needs to be set for the max occupancy and the "Extra Person" price needs to be added with a negative value so the price for the full occupancy can send.
  • If you have multiple prices the system searches for the best (lowest) price for the requested period and length of stay. "Check-in" and "Check-out" limitations in rates will be ignored.

Prices

Daily prices or Rates with the "Traumferienwohnungen" channel ticked and set as offer 1 will send to Traum-Ferienwohnungen. The price sent is a room price, only ONE price can be sent per date. Also a minimum stay can be sent. If you have multiple prices activated with different minimum stays the system will send the price with the lowest minimum stay.

Price Multiplier

If you want to add a multiplier to your prices add a * followed by the multiplier number.

The multiplier applies to all prices and fees which are sent.

For example a hotel id setting *1.23' will multiply all prices by 1.23 sent (i.e. raised by 23%). Lower prices can be sent with a multiplier less than 1, i.e. *0.85 will send a price 85% of the normal price (i.e. lowered by 15%)

To convert the price of bookings imported add a * after the multiplier, for example *1.23* will divide the price of the booking by 1.23.

You can also use currency conversion template variable. All currencies supported by the booking page currency selector can be used.

For example *[CONVERT:IDR-EUR] will convert Indonesian Rupees to Euros.
