All Rate changes and Rate Restrictions must be done in the Manage Rates area. The Manage Rates feature allows you to quickly and fluidly set special conditions (price surcharges and minimum stays) for a specific day or date range up to 57 weeks in advance. Often, this is used to manage rates for peak periods – Long Weekends, Special Events, Holidays, Weekly Rates, etc. Each Rate Plan must be managed and prices need to be adjusted for each time frame. The changes made here do not effect the Default Rates. See Default Rates
All Rate Plans must be managed individually. To get started, follow these steps.
- Go to RATES | MANAGE RATES. See figure 1.
- Choose the Rate Plan to manage from the drop-down list and the date range, then click Display Rates. A screen will automatically appear with the Rate Plan Information by Date. See Figure 2. below.

Managing Rate Plan
When you select a rate and a time frame and press Display Rates, the system automatically loads the rate for that time frame. If you've never edited the rate or stay options for that time frame the system loads the Default Rate. See Modifying Rate Plans
