How are occupancy rates are calculated in Advanced Analytics?

Advanced Analytics is a premium feature available to Pro users only. Contact us to discuss activating it.

You can use Advanced Analytics to view the occupancy rate of some or all of your listings over a selected period, for up to 12 months from today. The occupancy rate is the number of booked days divided by the number of bookable days.

This article will help you understand the difference between booked and bookable days, how the occupancy rate is calculated for multiple listings at once, with some examples. 

Important:

Advanced Analytics does not recognize occupancy for reservations with a check-in date from before the listing was activated.

Booked days

The number of days with a confirmed reservation in the selected period. 

Bookable days

The number of days that could have been booked (could have had a confirmed reservation) in the selected period. A listing's calendar can have blocks that stop a date from being booked. By default, dates with these blocks are not considered bookable, but you can contact us to add any of them in your Advanced Analytics so they are considered bookable (it can take up to 24 hours for the change to take effect):

Note:

Dates blocked by advance notice and booking window settings are considered bookable days since they were previously available. However, if any of the above also apply on the same day, it will not be considered bookable.

The overall occupancy rate

When viewing the Occupancy dashboard in Advanced Analytics, you can see the overall occupancy rate for some or all listings in your Guesty account for a selected period. See below which listings are included in the calculation:
  • Active listings. Since listings that are inactive now could have been active during the selected period, the timeframe in which they were active is included in the calculation.
  • Unlisted listings that are active.

Tip:

You can also view the occupancy rate per individual listing via the "Listing Performance" widget in the Advanced Analytics Occupancy dashboard. 

Examples of occupancy rate calculations

Below are two examples to help you further understand the occupancy rate calculation.

Example 1: Occupancy rate per individual listing

The table below represents a listing's calendar, from 1st January to 10th January. Next to each date, you can see its status, whether or not the date has been blocked, and the number of booked and bookable days.

In this example, the occupancy rate is 57.14%. See how it is calculated below the table.
