Changing the dates of a reservation

You can change the dates of a reservation in Guesty or via the reservation channel of origin. 

For a reservation in a Confirmed status, changing the number of nights will impact the added costs, but will not affect the original reservation price. The rates for the added nights will be calculated according to the current price per night. However, the price per night for the original nights will remain the same. Any fees and taxes will change - if they are calculated per night (rather than per stay or per guest). If you subtract nights from a reservation, the remaining nights will be kept at the same price.

For example:  A reservation was confirmed for two nights at a rate of $30 per night. The price per night was since optimized by a revenue management tool and is now $32. If you add a night to the reservation, the price per night for the original two nights will remain $30. The price of the added night will be $32.  Fees and taxes charged per night will be calculated according to the original price for the first two nights, and according to the adjusted price for the added night. Fees and taxes charged per stay or per guest will not be affected.

A reservation in Inquiry or Reserved statuses does not benefit from locked prices. Changes to the reservation will cause a recalculation of the price per night as well as fees and taxes. 

If you want to keep the original accommodation fare as when the reservation was booked, you can manually adjust the price when changing the dates, as explained in the steps below.
