Rate Plans and Rooms Rates for any Pricing Model
Any kind of pricing model
The Pricing Framework of Vik Booking was developed to support any kind of pricing model by following the OpenTravel Alliance Standards. Whether you use rates per nights of stay (LOS), rates by occupancy or per-day rates, with Vik Booking you will be able to set up any possible pricing rule.
Per Day Pricing
This is the most common pricing model. Every day of the year can have its own cost. For example, you can have different rates on weekdays than weekend, or in days of high season rather than low season.
Per Day by Length of Stay
This pricing model is often adopted by Apartments, Villas and B&Bs. Rates can be defined depending on the number of nights of stay. For example, 1 night EUR 80, 2 nights EUR 150, and so on.
Per Occupancy Pricing
Those who use different rates depending on the number of adults will find this function fundamental. Adjust the costs of the rooms depending on the number of adults that occupy it. A property that would like to give a Double Room to one Adult only for example, can define a charge or a discount for the single occupancy of the room.
The system allows to optionally define costs with absolute or percentage value, so that it's also possible, for example, to make a child pay the 100% of the room cost if older than a certain age. In this case, after a specific age, children can be considered as adults.
Seasonal Prices and Promotions
Vik Booking will let you alter the default rates on some seasons, holidays, weekends and festivities of the year. By setting charges or discounts as either absolute or percentage values, you will be able to adjust your rates in no time.
With the restrictions, you can define your booking rules for certain dates/months of the year. For example, in high season you can limit the Minimum Length of Stay (Min LOS) to 2 nights. Otherwise, you could set up a Maximum Length of Stay rule (Max LOS) or force the arrival and departure day to something like Friday/Monday.
CTA/CTD (Closed to Arrival/Departure)
Restrictions can also be used to close certain days to arrival and/or departure. That's what the CTA and CTD rules are meant for. Another must-have feature to balance the bookable dates. Compliant with the OTA Standards.
Week-Day Arrival and Departure Combinations
Guide your visitors during the selection of the dates for check-in and check-out. With some Restrictions in place, the system will automatically exclude certain dates depending on the minimum and maximum stay, and eventually on the days closed/forced to arrival/departure.
Suggest the Closest Booking Solutions
In case of no availability for the dates or party requested. The system can suggest to book on some other dates when there is still availability, or it can suggest a different booking solutions to allocate all the guests into the available rooms.
Automated SMS, Custom Email Reminders and Invoices Generator
SMS and Custom Email Reminders
Thanks to the Cron Jobs Scheduling function, you can automatize some tasks such as to send a custom reminder via email to all customers that will be checking in the day after, or send an email after the check-out to invite your customers to leave a review.
Reminder for the remaining Balance
There is also another type of Reminder for the Remaining Balance that should be paid before the arrival.
You can automatize and customize pretty much anything!
Generate and send Invoices
You can schedule the Cron Job to automatically generate an invoice and send it to your customers before the check-in or after the check-out. This will save you a lot of time.
Custom Payment Gateways
