As any holiday or peak time approaches, if you haven’t sold all the rooms that you’d like to have sold, open the rooms up in the BedandBreakfast.com Online Reservations program.
Many properties allocate their room availability to our system with the expectations of getting two- or three-night stays on some of the peak weekends. We would love for our members to get these length of stays. However, as you near those peak times, if your rooms haven’t yet sold, open your dates up in our system if they are blocked out, and remove any minimum stay requirements you have set. You’d be surprised at the last-minute bookings you could generate as a result of these simple changes in our system. We see a lot of properties with weekends like 4th of July blacked out, only to see on their own availability calendars that their rooms are still available. This program can be great at filling in the gaps and vacancies on weekends or other peak dates when you would rather be completely sold out!
You can change your minimum stay requirements right on each room’s availability screen in our system. Simply change the minimum stay from a two or three to a one, and click “Save Changes” as seen in the image below. If you need help with this, please call us at 1-800-462-2632 ext 4, and we will be happy to assist you.
