Fix, Percentag, Offset Standard or Offset Person
When setting up the room prices, also the minimum, standard and maximum occupancy of each room type must be set. When there is a variance between minimum and / or maximum occupancy compared to the standard occupancy, the price for less and / or more guests must be calculated. There is the possibility to set a fixed value, a percentage or an amount based on the price per person, or per room. For every additional guest the same amount will be calculated.
When using PERCENTAGE, RateBoard is calculating the price for one person per room and uses this price as base for the percentage (110% in this case would be 10% more as the calculated price for one person, 80% would be 20% less than the calculated price for one person in this room). When using OFFSET PERSON, an amount is deducted or added. With the option FIXED, the price that RateBoard calculated will be replaced by this value. With OFFSET STANDARD and less people than the standard occupancy, an amount will be deducted or added, or with more people in the room an amount and the price for the standard occupancy will be added.
To illustrate this more clearly, we will use an example room type. It has a minimum occupancy of 1, a standard occupancy of 2 and a maximum occupancy of 4. The example rate is 200 € for the standard occupancy.
X % from the price of a single guest (calculated based on the standard occupancy)
When we want a surplus of +25% for single use (only one person is sleeping in the room) and -30% for the 3. And 4. Person, than our example will be as follows:
1 Person: Set to 125 PERCENTAG = Rate standard occupancy / standard occupancy * 125% = 200 € / 2 * 1,25 = 125 €
3. and 4. Person: Set to 70 PERCENTAGE = Rate standard occupancy / standard occupancy * 70% = 200 € / 2 * 0,7 = 70 €
X is always the price for this guest
When one person is to have a fixed value of 80 € and 3 or 4 people 50 € more, each, then the standard room:
1 Person: Set to 80 FIXED = Price for one person = 80 €
3. and 4. Person: Set to 50 FIXED = Price for every additional guest= 50 €
Addition or deduction from X from the total room rate for standard occupancy.
When the price for a single room shall be 30 € bellow the price of the room at standard occupancy and the price for an additional person 50 € less:
1 Person: Set to – 30 OFFSET STANDARD = Rate at standard occupancy – 30 € = 170 €
3. und 4. Person: Set to – 50 € OFFSET STANDARD = Rate at standard occupancy – 50 € = 150 €
Therefore, using OFFSET STANDARD makes most sense for less people sleeping in a room, then standard occupancy.
Addition or deduction from X calculated from the price of one person in standard occupancy
When a room is to cost 30 € more for single use, as the price per person for double occupancy and the 3. and 4. person 50 € less than the price in double occupancy:
1 Person: Set to 30 OFFSET PERSON = rate standard occupancy / standard occupancy + 30 € = 200 € / 2 + 30 € = 130 €
3. and 4. Person: Set to – 50 OFFSET PERSON = rate standard occupancy / standard occupancy – 50 € = 200 € / 2 – 50 € = 50 €
At the second setting age categories, the various age groups for kids can be set.
