            How do I set up a rate with Room*Day pricing ?


            A [Room/Day]Pricing rate is used in situations where you want to enter prices that flex by days of the week. The hotel could set one rate for Mondays, one for Tuesdays and so on.

            1. Go into the Booking Engine Service


            2. Under Rate Management click Browse Rates. Create Rate
