Adding Length of Stay Discounts

Length of Stay (LOS) Discount is a feature that allows you to apply “Stay and Save” Discounts to a rates. This saves you having to create multiple rates in order to apply a discount.






To set up LOS Discount go to the Booking Engine and go to Browse Rates 

 

On the rate you wish to add the discount, click edit


 

Go to the Restrictions tab


 

At the bottom of this page, you’ll find the section for LOS Discounts. Click Add Discount Rule to create a new rule

 


Select the LOS you wish to apply the discount for and the type of discount



If the Discount Type contains an [X] or [Y], you can fill in values to replace them with the values you wish to use. In this example, the Booker will get 10% off the two cheapest nights.


You can add multiple rules. If no rule is set for a specific LOS, then the system will apply the discount from a lower LOS (ie the 3 night rule will apply to 4 night stays)




In the Browse Rates section, the rate now has a symbol to indicate a LOS Discount is in place 




The LOS Discounts are now available on the rate. The booker can click the link to adjust the dates of stay and unlock the discount. The discount is automatically applied to searches that match the length of stay required

 

 

LOS Discount Restrictions.


Rates have an option to provide length of stay discounts, but this is applied to all dates which may not be desirable. To mitigate this, we have provided the functionality to restrict LOS discounts on specific dates

The option is accessed from the Browse Rates screen. Just hover over the LOS Discounts tag and click “manage restrictions”





You can then apply restrictions at a global level or on specific lengths of stay. For example, you may wish to only discount longer stays for Valentine’s day but restrict all discounts on St. Patrick’s day



You can also review dates in the past for up to 30 days. This isn’t a log of dates you’ve set for the last 30 days, it is the dates that were restricted and are now in the past. These will show beside the LOS that was restricted



Where the LOS discount isn’t available, the option will be greyed out. Otherwise, it will be a clickable link that automatically extends a customer's length of stay.
