Discounts

You are here:

When making an accommodation unit, it is very important to create all possible discounts and opportunities that you may have and want to activate at some point in the year. This does not mean the discount has to be activated as soon as you create it, but it is necessary to define the validity and travel period of the discount in advance.  

For example, if you create a presentation of the accommodation unit long before the start of the reservation season, you can set a minimum stay of 5 or 7 nights (during high season).

However, in Opportunities, you can define that if the term is not filled by the end of March, an opportunity will activate with an option of booking only 3 or fewer nights (shorter term).

Or, for example, by the end of May, not all terms have been filled and you have free periods of one or two nights, you can allow guests to reserve even shorter stays, but with a price increase.

This way, you do not have to worry about having empty space in your calendar, since our system will base itself on previously defined opportunities so that each term is filled with reservations.

Note: If you activate promotions on a sales channel and in BeeRent at the same time, they will automatically be aggregated.


Step 1

To add discounts, click on the Discount / Opportunities section in your accommodation unit. Choose one of the four given options by clicking on the designated button:


Step 2

Once you enter all the desired discounts, you can check them all in one place, as shown in the image below:

Here you can also edit or remove discounts by clicking on the Edit or Delete button in the Tools column.

Note: You may add as many discounts as you want, you can even add the same type of discount more than once, but it is not allowed for the dates to overlap for the same types of discounts in one accommodation unit.
