The default rate of your accommodation is the price at which your accommodation will be sold for the entire booking period (maximum advance notice) as long as you have not created any season for the specific dates that you want to be booked.
How is this rate usually used?
It is normally used as the low season rate and in the seasonal section you can create a period for the bank holidays and special days when the accomodation is more expensive.
But you can also choose to create seasons for every day of the year and set the default rate with high prices to ensure you don't receive reservations at a very low price.
How is it configured?
You can configure it once you create the accommodation, since it is the second step to fill in the process. You can also find this option in My Accommodations menu. After choosing a property, a tab called Rates will appear at the top that will allow you to modify it.
If your accommodation is complete 🏡:
Go to the menu Accommodations -> My accommodations look for the property you want to update and click on it.
On the Rates tab you will see the section corresponding to Default Rates, Occupancy and Restrictions. You can configure:
Your prices during the week (Sunday to Thursday) and the weekend (Friday and Saturday nights).
Mandatory check in and check out days
Minimum stay when you don't have seasons
Occupancy of the property.
If your accommodation is partial 🏩:
Go to the menu Accommodations -> My accommodations search for the property you want to update and click on it.
In the units and rates tab you will see that to the right of each type you have the Rates button (4), click on it to access the configuration of the default rate for each type.
You will be able to configure the same fields that we have seen in the complete accommodation.
When you have finished, click on the Save button at the bottom of the page.
⚠️The configured prices are for the base occupation that you define. You will have to configure the prices for the additional people.
⚠️ The prices per additional person for Vrbo Xml and Airbnb Xml must be defined within the synchronization with those portals in AvaiBook.
⚠️ Extra person prices are not synced with either Expedia or Booking limited sync. You will have to configure them directly in their portals.
