If you manage many properties with similar rate structures you may benefit from the use of Seasonality Templates to set rates. This allows you to control rates for many properties from a single template. Please review this article to determine if this approach is right for you. If Seasonality Templates will not work, then rates can be set individually for each property from the property edit screen.

Where to Edit Rates

Navigate to Properties > List All Properties, then select the property you would like to edit...

Click the Rates / Rules tab...

Rates Interface

The various components of this interface are explained in further detail throughout this article...

  1. Rates: This is the main screen where you will add, edit, and manage your rates.

  2. Rate Settings / Rule Settings: Before setting up your rates, there are several rate settings that you will want to review. For example, you can choose to enable weekly and monthly rates, per person rates, etc. Please see this article for a complete review.

  3. Copy Rates: Copy rates from another property.

  4. Clone Previous Year: Copy rates from the previous year.

  5. Rate Table: This table lists each rate period. The icons on the far right allow you to add, edit, or delete the rates.

  6. Year Selector: Choose which year to manage. We recommend setting rates for the current year, and at least one year in advance.

  7. Calendar: Shows a color coded view of your rate periods. Hover your cursor over any date range to view the rates and rules that you have set for that season.

Add or Edit Rate Periods

  1. Default Rate: This will apply to any date on your calendar that does not have a rate period assigned to it. This rate can be edited and renamed, but not deleted. It exists to guard against mistakes in setup. We recommend setting it to match your highest rate, in the event that a reservation ever occurs for a date that did not have a rate assigned.

  2. Rate Table: Click the "+" icon for any existing rate period to add a new rate, or click the Edit icon to edit the details of that rate period.

  3. Calendar: Click and drag to select any open dates on the calendar to add a new rate, or click on any existing rate period to edit it. Use the rate selector to move between years.

IMPORTANT! - Rate periods cannot extend between years. For example, if your winter season extends from December 1, 2024 January 31, 2025, you would need to enter two rate periods. One from December 1 - December 31 2024 and another from January 1 - January 31, 2025.

Configure the Rate Period

  1. Name: Create a name for the rate.

  2. Min Nights: The minimum number of nights that the guest must book for this rate period.

  3. Date Range: Start and End date for this rate period.

  4. Nightly Rate: The nightly rate for this period. A nightly rate must be configured, regardless of the minimum night rule you have set.

  5. Weekend Rate: Charge a different rate for weekend days. You can choose what days you consider weekends from Settings > Important Settings > Bookings.

  6. Weekly / Monthly Rates: Optionally set weekly or monthly rates.

  7. Arrival / Departure Day: Optionally set arrival and departure day rules. For example, you could require that guests book from Saturday to Saturday.

  8. Per Person Rates: Configure your per person rates if you have them enabled.

  9. Save

Copy Rates from One Property to Another

Once rates are set up for one property,  you can copy those rates to other properties and then tweak them if necessary. This can really save time with setup if your properties share similar rate periods.

  1. Click the Copy Rates button

  2. Select which property you want to copy the rates from

  3. Select which rate periods you want to copy

Copy Rates from the Previous Year

Rates from one year can be copied to the next with a single click. These rates may need to be modified in the new year to account for certain special seasons and holidays that may land on different dates each year.

When clicking on the "Clone Previous Year" button, please make sure that you have selected the year to populate with the cloned rates. For example, to setup rates for 2025 and copy them from existing 2024 rates, first select 2025...

...and then click on the Clone Previous Year button. A warning will appear, telling you that all rates in the selected year (in this example 2025) will be replaced with the rates from the previous year. Click OK to proceed with the cloning...
