Hostaway Reservations Breakdown
This feature is only available for Hostaway reservations:
- Direct reservations
- Booking Engine reservations
- WordPress reservations
It is only available for reservations made after the feature activation.
What is Hostaway Reservations Breakdown?
We offer the possibility, for Hostaway reservations, to see the price breakdown directly in a reservation:
In order to have an accurate Financial Reporting, you might want to change the Base Rate or any other price.
Changing any amount here will update the Total Price.
How to use this feature?
For Booking Engine and WordPress reservations, you will need to go to Reservations > Click on Details > Click on Edit > You can then edit the different values and then click on Save.
For Direct Reservations: When you will create the reservation, the system is going to calculate the total, based on your Calendar daily rates, your taxes and your cleaning fee.
DO NOT edit manually this total, yet. If you edit the Total Price during the reservation creation, the other fields will NOT be updated.
ie: The Total Reservation is 2000 EUR. You have a Base Rate of 1800 EUR, a cleaning fee of 150 EUR and taxes of 50 EUR. If you change the total, during the reservation creation, from 2000 EUR to 1500 EUR because you want to give an offer a discount, the base rate, cleaning fee and taxes will remain the same (Base Rate 1800 EUR, cleaning fee 150 EUR and taxes of 50 EUR for a Total Price of 1500 EUR)
So, you will need to create your Direct Reservation without editing the price and then save. Once created, you will be able to click on Edit and then edit the Base Rate and other fields. The total price will update automatically.
Direct channel Fees (extra fees and extra discounts)
These fees can be applied to direct reservations coming from the Booking Engine, WordPress plugin, and the Hostaway dashboard.
You can create extra fees and discounts directly from Listing > Edit > Price and Fees
