How do I Change My Rates for a Short Period (e.g. a long weekend)?

This lesson will show you how to OVERRIDE your standard (RACK) rates for a specific period of time.

This should be used for SHORT periods of time (e.g Easter weekend; Valentines day) that fall within a season.

Double Click on the Setup icon on your Desktop.

This will open up the Nightsbridge setup.

Click on Override Rates.

Select a Rate Sheet and Room Type and click on Add Override Rate.

Select a Rate Sheet by clicking on the drop down arrow (1). Typically this will be your RACK sheet, meaning you want to override your standard rates.

What if I choose another Rate Sheet?
This means you want to override the rates on bookings using this Rate Sheet only.
This won't apply to bookings made on your own website (unless you use Client Logins) or any of the other websites.

Select a Room Type (2) by clicking on the down arrow .

Click Add Override Rate (3).

Enter override rates.

Once in the Override Rate window, you can change the Rate Sheet and/or Room Type if need be.

Select a Meal Plan (1) by clicking on the drop down arrow.

Select the Start and End dates (2) that you want this Override rate to run by typing in a date or clicking on drop down arrow to bring up a calendar.
It should be a short period of time. If it's a month or more, you should create a Season instead (see Add New Seasons).

Click once on the 0 (turns it blue) and enter the rate (3)
Single and Per Person rates cannot be left on 0.
3rd, 4th and 5th+ person rates can be 0.

Click Save (4).

Exit to Main Menu.

Once the Override Rate is saved, it will appear in the Override Rates window.
Click Main Menu to return to the Main Menu and Synchronise.

Synchronise the Setup.

Click once on Synchronise to upload your Override Rates onto the system.

After you've adjusted any of your rates or seasons, please remember to check your minimum stays and other additional settings.

Note: Always do test bookings to ensure you are happy with the new rates you have entered.
