How to set up an Advance Purchase rate?


Create a new rateplan (named Advanced Purchase) as normal in the booking engine ie. complete all steps 1-5

  1. In Step 2, set the Minimum Booking Date to the amount of days you would like the Advanced Purchase rate to be bookable from eg. 7/14/21 days out etc

  2. Under "cancel days prior to arrival" select "No cancellations"

  1. Complete rateplan setup and save
  2. Inform Net Affinity that the new Advanced Purchase rateplan has been created so they can turn on the Prepay option
  3. Once that has been done, a prepay tickbox will appear in step 4 of the rateplan setup 

  4. Tick this box to ensure booker knows that full payment will be taken at the time of booking
  5. If Hotel has own Realex account then funds will go directly into the Realex account - if not then hotel must manually charge the card
  6. All terms & conditions should be inserted either in Step 5 Ts&Cs or in the rateplan description to inform guest that the booking is non-cancellable, non-refundable, non-transferrable
