Fixed Packages are packages which have a fixed 'sell price' for a specific time frame.
For example, A Valentine package might have dinner for 2, wine and flowers included with a 3 night stay in a Queen Room. The package will cost $450. As the price is 'fixed' at $450, the Rate Plan associated with the Queen Room will be ignored. The amount that will be allocated to the Queen room in this case (and becomes taxable at the 'lodging' tax) would be the total of the Items (let's say we had dinner for 2 at $60; wine at $25; and flowers for $25 = $110) less the 'sell price' of $450. So, in this example, the 'Room Rate' becomes $450 - $110 = $340. Because it's a 3-day stay, the ' Queen Room Rate' becomes $113.33/day ($340/3).
Once a package is set up, then it must be allocated in Agent Relationships to appear on your website or GDS. See Allocating Packages
