Close a rate plan

In certain instances, you may wish to close a rate plan over a particular date range.  For example, your 'standard rate plan' must not apply over a holiday weekend.   If you want this rate plan to be closed for all channels, affiliate sites and from within your own website (should you have Booksure widgets embedded in your website), you would close the rate plan at the 'Base Rate' level (see Option 1 below).  Should you wish this rate plan to be closed for selected channels only, you would close the rate plan at the 'Channel Level'  (See Option 2 below).


Option 1 - Closing a rate plan at the base rate level

Step 1

From within your Booksure Dashboard, click on the Pricing, and select Real-time Rates.




Step 2

From your Base Rates page, please click on the Rate Plan Restrictions button that appears within the specific room that you would like to alter.




Your Rate Plan criteria will now display here. 

Under the Pensioners Rate Plan a Closed field appears.  It currently illustrates that this rate plan is open.  Click on the green Open button in order to change this rate plan to Closed over the specific date.

Once you have verified that the information is correct, please click on the Save changes button.





Our Pensioner Rate is no longer an available option for the Cottage over the specified dates on the listings.



Closing a rate plan for an extended period

Alternatively to close a date range, you may click on Update Restrictions for date range.  In the popup click on the rate plans to which the closed dates must apply.  Enter the date range, tick the days, and then click next to Closed.  Then click on the green Open button to change it to Closed and then click Save. 





Option 2 - Closing a rate plan at a channel level

Utilising this would enable you to close a rate plan to either Booking.com, or to affiliates, website widgets and the Booksure template website (Website option).

Step 1

From your Base Rates page, please click on the Channel Rates and Restrictions button that appears within the specific room that you would like to close a rate plan on.

Step 2

The next screen shows the base rates for the particular room type at the top, and the different rate plans per room type are displayed below that. 

Click on the Channel dropdown to select a channel to close a rate plan for.  “Website” refers to the Booksure Free Template website, Booksure widgets and affiliate listing sites.


Once the appropriate channel has been selected, note that under the Rate Plan a Closed field appears.  It currently illustrates that this rate plan is not closed.  Click on the No button in order to change this to Yes. 


Once you have verified that the information is correct, please click on the Save changes button.
