Understanding Length of Stay and Advance Reservation Restrictions
These rules help you decide how travelers can book a stay at your property based on your preferences. If you apply these rules, potential guests can only make a reservation when their booking criteria match the conditions you've set.
Minimum Length of Stay Restrictions: These rules determine the shortest number of nights guests can book at your property. For instance, if you set a minimum length of stay of three nights, your property won't show up in search results for travelers looking for stays of two nights or less.
Minimum Advance Reservation Restrictions: These rules determine how early before the check-in date a guest can book a stay with you.
You can set a minimum length of stay restriction for up to 31 nights.
You can also apply these restrictions to specific check-in dates, known as "minimum length of stay from arrival restrictions."
Advance Reservation Timeframes: You can set both minimum and maximum advance reservation times for specific rooms or properties on specific dates. These restrictions can be in terms of days (D) and hours (H) before the check-in date.
- If you want guests to book at least one day in advance, you would enter 1D in the system.
- If you want to allow same-day bookings until 6:00 PM, you would enter 6H in the system.
- If you want guests to book at least three days and five hours in advance, you would enter 3D5H in the system.
- If you don't want guests to book more than ten days in advance, you would enter 10D in the system.
These rules help you control how guests can book stays at your property, ensuring that their booking aligns with your requirements.
