Setup Your Price Bands (Seasons)
The first thing you should do when setting up new pricing, or updating existing pricing, is review your Price Bands. These are referred to on your Website Booking System as ‘Seasons’. A Price Band or Season is simply giving a name to multiple dates that share exactly the same weekly prices and daily prices. Once we’ve named our ‘Seasons’ and assigned dates to these Seasons it makes them easier to manage.
Creating Your Seasons
The way you create your Seasons will depend on the way you would like to structure your pricing. Here are a couple of examples of how you could create your Seasons depending on your own personal requirements:
Example 1 – Offer a common price per night and/or price per week for each Season.
If you would like to present a common nightly rate and/or weekly rate to your guests then you would setup your Season similarly to the example shown in Fig S1. In this example we have created a new Season, which we have named ‘Example 1’ and allocated the date range 1 Jan 2021 – 31 Jan 2021 to it. You’ll notice by default all the days of the week are ticked.
Example 2 – Offer different prices depending upon the day of the week and/or price per week for each Season.
What if you would like to charge a different nightly rate to guests that book short stays over the weekends as opposed to those that book midweek? If this is the case, you will need to create additional Seasons. In the example illustrated in Fig S2, we have created two new Seasons, which we have named ‘Example 2 WD’ and ‘Example 2 WE’.In Example 2 WD we have left the WeekDays ticked and unticked Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In Example 2 WE, we have unticked Monday-Thursday.This will allow you the flexibility assigning a weekend rate that will apply to all Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the whole month of January 2021.
