Room costing

I have a complex on Booking.com Falcons Nest with 3 rooms sleeping 4 people and 3 rooms sleeping 6. It shows on my site $200 and $300 respectively which people look at but they do not read the price is for 4 and 6 people Not 2 like most of my competitors.

This actually works out at $100.00 for 2 people or $50.00 per person. I see through February that my competitors are fairly well booked  and I seem to miss out? How can I advertise that I am only charging $50 per person per night and my rooms can sleep 4 or 6 people therefore getting more bookings than I am getting now.

It seems prospective guests look at the $200 and $300 per night and move on. I want to advertise $100 for 2 people but rooms can sleep 4 or 6. I look forward to your response

Hello Lynette,

This is where a PMS software linked to a Channel Manager would come in handy, however, there is another way.

You will need to ask Booking.com to enable single occupancy, double occupancy, etc. on your room rates, so whenever someone searches for a room, they will get the right price.

This will require a phone call, so just call the number you have in the extranet inbox section.

Hope this helps. Best regards,

I have a similar problem. I rent out a property which comprises two Villas on one block. One villa has 2 bedrooms / bathrooms / lounge and kitchen and sleeps 4 people, the other Villa is also S/Contained and sleeps 2. I can also accommodate 2-3 more on mattresses.

I had it setup on Booking as 1 room and changed to two rooms, but then 'lost' a booking when the total price came up double what I wanted to charge. (added two rooms). So I changed back to 1 room, which was ok except it wiped some dates I had BLOCKED.... !!!

Now if i search as a guest looking for a place Booking it is showing sold out. And in the extranet is showing to have restrictions! How do I remove the restrictions?
