The Default Rates area displays a list of all of the Rate Plans you have created for your property. Here you can create a new Rate Plan and modify the characteristics of an existing Rate Plan, but any actual Rate changes must be done in Manage Rates.
Create as many Rate Plans as needed and allocate these Rate Plans to Room Types or Packages. Although each Room Type can only be assigned one default Rate Plan, multiple Rate Plans can be allocated to the same Room Type for seasonal rates and promotions. See Agent Relationships and Promotions
When setting up a default Rate, think about the different Room Types you offer and how the rate plans will apply . Once this default Rate is entered, you can manage rate changes and length-of-stay options in Manage Rates. After you have set up the Rate Plans, create the Room Types to associate with the default Rates.
There are three types of Rate Plans you can create, see details on each in the following sections.
Where will I see these Rates?
Default Rates are setup and used as the initial Rate Plan. The Rate I.D and Description will be see in the Rate Plan options available for the Room Type in the New Booking Window and in Booking by Inquiry. The New Booking window will display only the Rate Plans for the Room Type chosen.
In the example below, The Queen Rate Plan is assigned to the Queen Room Type. This will appear as the standard rate plan for all Rooms in the Queen Room Type. To create a Special, discounted rate or package for the Queen Room Type, first create a new single rate or child rate and then allocate the additional rate plan in the Agent Allocations (RELATIONSHIPS|AGENT RELATIONSHIPS). See Agent Allocations. Or, in a Package. See Packages
