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.
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.
