How to set up pooled inventory by room type


To allow for easier management of Availability for similar room types, they can be pooled, e.g. the Double Room type inventory can be also be sold as Single /Double for Sole Occupancy or Twin Rooms 

This allows you to give guest more options in terms of room type but will not allow them to book more than you have available on any given night. 

Step-by-step guide

  1. Firstly, contact Net Affinity to enable this function on your Booking Engine. 
  2. Under Admin →  Room Types and select the room type that you want  to pool off the base room (in the example above we select the Single as the Double room is the Base Room)
  3. Approx half way down the page, you will see "Room type availability pool", in here choose the base room e.g. Double. 

  4. Under the Availability section, this room type will now be greyed out and the availbility will match the base room type.

  5. It's possible to attache several room types to the same base room type. 

NOTE: this function does not work with all Channel Mangers where there is a 2 Way Integration in place, i.e. booking are sent back to the channel manager. Please consult your account manager.
