This article explains how to set the default and season rates of your properties, use the sync function and the rates calendar.

Read about: 

Default rate

You must set up a Default rate for each of the properties in your portfolio.

  1. Go to Menu and select My properties.
  2. Select the property that you want to amend, click Edit and select Rates
  3. Use the top section of the page to configure your default rate for the chosen property. The rate will apply yearlong unless you specify other season rates
    • To assign a name to your default rate, click Change name
    • Use Bookability settings to define if your guests can book your property instantly or if you rather review all booking requests before confirming availability. See Set up your booking conditions. 
    • You must set a Policy which contains a Reservation deposit if you want to accept online payments. You can decide the amount that you want to receive upfront, either as a fixed amount or as a percentage which can be as high as the 100% of the booking value. See Policies
    • Use Misc. charges for any charge that is not in the default Lodgify list, such as breakfast. You can customize the name of this and any other fields using Custom Translation.
    • To specify other rules, such as allowing check-in or check-out only on certain dates, use Additional rates settings
    • Remember that some of the settings such as the charge for additional guest or the extra charge when the stay is too short only trigger during the booking path if the exception applies.

Note: Remember to scroll down the page and click Save each time you make a change.

Season rates and sync function

Season rates give you the opportunity to amend the rates of your property over certain time periods, for example during summer or public holidays when prices usually rise. You can create several Season Rates - the settings you choose for those periods override the Default rate.

To add season rates:

  1. Go to Menu and select My properties.
  2. Select the property that you want to amend, click Edit and select Rates
  3. Scroll down to the Season rates section and click Add Season Rate. If you want to assign a name to your rate, click Change name.
  4. Fill all appropriate fields and choose if you want to use the Sync function. Read more
    The sync function allows you to copy the main Default rate options across the Season rate. If you turn this option on, you will save a considerable amount of time each time you make a change to the Default rate. It also saves you time if you create several Season rates. However, when the Sync function is turned on some of the options will be greyed out and cannot be amended.  
    For example, if you synchronize prices, then the only option available for you to amend is the nightly rate. The weekly, monthly and custom prices will be copied across and cannot be changed.  
  5. Assign one or more date ranges to your rate and click Add, or simply click Save to add them later using the Rates Calendar.

Rates Calendar

Use the Rates Calendar to assign your season rates to one or more date ranges.

  1. Go to Menu and select My properties.
  2. Select the property that you want to amend, click Edit and select Rates
  3. Scroll down to the Rates calendar
  4. Click on a date.
  5. A pop-up window appears. Select a date range, assign a season rate or create a new one.
  6. Review your settings and click Set Period.
