How to manage prices, availability and restrictions


The parameters about prices, availability and restrictions of each day, for each room type that you can manage through WuBook are:

  • Price: the sell price per night/ room.
  • Availability: Is the value that indicates the number of rooms to sell for each category on a given day.
  • Minimum Stay: Does not allow reservations of a period of stay that is less than this value (value in number of nights).
  • Minimum Stay on Arrival: Does not allow reservations of a period of stay that is less than this value which applies only if the check in of the stay is on that date.
  • Maximum Stay: Does not allow reservations for a stay that is longer than this value.
  • Open/Close Sales: open or close online sales of a chosen typology on a chosen date regardless if there´s availability or not.
  • No check-in: Allows you to sell the night with the restriction but does not allow reservations which start date (check in date) matches this day. This is not a close sales date.
  • No check-out: Allows you to sell the night with the restriction but does not allow reservations which last day (check out date) matches this day. This is not a close sales date.
  • No OTA: This is only enabled when both wubook and woodoo services are contracted. It is used to close out sales on the connected external channels (OTAs), keeping your availability open on your booking engine only.

WuBook has a tool called “Table” to daily managed all details previously explained. The top left box is the selling price, the top right box shows the availability; the middle boxes from left to right show the Minimum Stay, Minimum Stay on Arrival and Maximum Stay. The green box represents the selling status Open for Sales; when clicking on it will turn black meaning is Closed for Sales; and another click will turn it red meaning which means No Check IN allowed. The small box next to it, if thicked, represents No Check Out. The bold number is the amount of reservations received for that type of room on that date.

Difference between Minimum Stay and Minimum Stay on Arrival

For example, setting up a 7 nights minimum stay on the 24/12, the period of stay must be of 7 or more nights. If, instead, we set up a 7 nights minimum stay on arrival on the 24/12 , it will be possible to make a reservation of 3 nights with check in date 23/12 and check out date 26/12 because in this case the arrival date does not match the date when we have configured the restriction. In the minimum stay on arrival , the restriction is applied only if the check in date matches the date when the restriction is configurated.

Manage values on Tabla

Table is the daily editor that allows you to manage Prices, Restrictions and Availability in both your booking engine and in the channel manager. This is a table or calendar with horizontal lines set up showing your type of rooms (including virtual rooms) and columns with the dates. A navigation bar to move easily and trouble free between dates we want to see and/or make modifications on, to be able to manage everything from one single screen. With Table is possible to manage as well each of our Prices Plans and each of our Restrictions Plans by selecting the option that interests us from the drop down menu. (Prices, Restrictions).

Manage Values on SYTAR

Sytar is the bulk editor that allows you to manage Prices, Restrictions and Availability in big scale. For long periods of time. Steps:

  1. Insert the date range in which to modify
  2. Choose the type of room/rooms we want to modify
  3. Select the parametre you want to modify (Prices, Restrictions, Availability)
  4. Select the plan (prices plan or restrictions plan) we want to modify
  5. Check the box “values to update
  6. Click on apply

Manage prices with a Price Plan

WuBook allows you to generate price plans capable of defining a different price for each date and for each room. Is possible to manage standard prices using an alternative price plan to the wubook parity plan simply by selecting it from the box: ”use the following plan for your booking engine (WuBook Parity)

WuBook Parity

With WuBook Parity we mean the Standard Price Plan created from the default values entered on the rooms´ creation process, that is used for direct sales through WuBook´s booking engine. To the WuBook Parity plan (default price plan on system) corresponds a restrictions plan called “WuBook Restrcitions”. Both are the default plans in the booking engine.
