Using rate strategy: Important information

The information in this article is relevant only for Pro users at this time.

You can use Guesty's rate strategy feature to automatically adjust pricing and minimum nights on your listings in bulk, based on the rules that you set up. This article will help you understand how this works alongside other Guesty features, third-party tools, and your connected booking channels.

Third-party pricing tools

If you are using third-party pricing tools via Guesty's Marketplace, the rate strategy feature should not be used, except for the following scenarios:

Discounts

If you have added weekly or monthly length of stay discounts to a listing in Guesty, these discounts will be applied in addition to the prices calculated by rate strategy rules.

Example

If the nightly price is on a calendar is $120 after the rate strategy rules have been applied, and there is a weekly discount of $20 set up on the listing, the price sent to the booking channels will be $100.

Rule-Sets in Airbnb

If you have set up rule-sets in Airbnb, they will be calculated on the price generated by the rate strategy. See the example below. 


Example

  • The nightly price generated by a rate strategy is $100.
  • You have set up a rule via Airbnb's multi-calendar to increase the rate by $20.
The nightly price that appears on Airbnb is $120. Keep in mind, the calendar in Guesty will still display the nightly rate at $100.

Extra-person fee & markups

If you have added extra-person fees and/or markups to your Guesty listings, they are added to the price generated by the rate strategy. See the example below. 


Example

  • The nightly price generated by a rate strategy is $100.
  • The listing's extra-person fee is $20.
  • The listing's markup is $10.
The nightly price that appears in the booking channel is $130.
