Set up price restrictions

A price restriction prevents a reservation from being made if a single night costs less or more than the specified price. The restriction can apply to:

  • Rates (all rates or specific rates)
  • Rate groups
  • Space categories
  • Space types

You can choose to restrict by arrival, departure, or stay when creating a price restriction:

  • For Arrival, a reservation that starts during the restricted period cannot be made unless every night of the reservation meets the required price.
  • For Departure, a reservation that ends during the restricted period cannot be made unless every night of the reservation meets the required price.
  • For Stay, a reservation with nights during the restricted period cannot be made unless every night of the reservation meets the required price.

Create a minimum price restriction

When a minimum price restriction (also called a hurdle rate) is in place, a reservation that falls within the restricted period cannot be made unless every night of the reservation meets or exceeds the minimum price.

  1. Go to Main menu > Settings > Services.
  2. Click on your stay service.
  3. From the Settings menu, click Restrictions.
  4. Click the + button.
  5. Under the Type field, choose to restrict by either arrival, departure, or stay.
  6. Enter the start and end date of the restriction.
    • The restriction applies to both the start and end date, as well as all dates in between. If you want to create a restriction for one day, you must enter the same date for the start and end.
  7. Select the rate, rate group, space category, and/or space type that you want the restriction to apply to. See our reference article for an in-depth explanation of fields on this screen.
    • If you do not select an option, the restriction will apply to all. For example, if you don't select a rate, the restriction will apply to all of your rates.
  8. Under Minimum price, enter the minimum price that each night of a reservation can be made for.
  9. Select the currency.
  10. Click Create.

When a maximum price restriction is in place, a reservation that falls within the restricted period cannot be made unless every night of the reservation costs less than or equal to the maximum price.
