A rate plan is a combination of rules that allows you to offer a mix of different rates, cancellation policies, and meal options to attract a wider variety of guests. Please note that rate plans are based on a listing’s standard rate. This is the price and number of minimum nights that are displayed on each listing’s calendar.

Choose from a selection of Guesty's predefined choices to help you get started or create your own plan from scratch. Once created, assign the rate plan to a group of listings. Follow the instructions below.

Before you begin

Important:

The fixed currency for Guesty Rate Plans is USD, regardless of the currency configured to your account or individual listing.

Please note the following information before creating a custom rate plan:

Booking.com

  • When assigning listings to a rate plan for the first time, existing rate plans that were previously created in Booking.com will automatically be deactivated. You will see two or more rate plans on the Booking.com Extranet as follows:
    • Old deactivated "Standard" that is not connected to Guesty. You should remove this plan.
    • New "Guesty - Standard" now connected to the Guesty default calendar.
    • New additional plan (name pattern is guesty - <custom name>) that is assigned to a listing from the Revenue Management page.
  • Booking.com will never display rate plans to users.

Guesty Booking Engine/Direct bookings

  • You must create a default rate plan without availability restrictions before you can offer rate plans with availability restrictions. After creating a default rate plan without availability restrictions, assign it to the relevant rate strategy (group of listings). In the end, you will have two rate plans assigned to a rate strategy: one without availability restrictions and one with availability restrictions.
  • Any rate plans with availability restrictions (for example: minimum nights, date range, or advanced notice) that are applied to direct bookings that do not have a rate plan without availability restrictions, will appear as available on the calendar and on the Guesty Booking Engine; however, guests would not be able to book the listing.
