period start and pirce management by period

I wanted to start my week on saturday, but people has booked on other days

I wanted to define a week price, but I was not able to maintain

In my opinion the most rules here are for a specific room, not for real estate and other season appartement

Dear Roberto,

You are posting the same thing over and over multiple threads.

So just to be clear:

- you can set up anything you need in your calendar, just need to close-open the periods you want

- if you want to have bookers stay only 1 week (we do not recommend as this is not how BDC works) then you can set up the minimum stay period in the calendar

- what do you mean by starting the week on Saturday? You only want to have Saturday and Sunday available, or how?

Best regards,

Thanks for the prompt reply
Let me say:
you can set up anything you need in your calendar, just need to close-open the periods you want
I want to start the week on saturday because it is the first day I start a holiday
I want a minimum of one week starting always on saturday and ending on the next friday
I want to fix a price for this week, non for a day.

- if you want to have bookers stay only 1 week (we do not recommend as this is not how BDC works) then you can set up the minimum stay period in the calendar

No, I want to define a minimum period of a week starting on saturday.

If the customer needs to stays more, he need to book more week.

The week is the minimum starting period

- what do you mean by starting the week on Saturday? You only want to have Saturday and Sunday available, or how?

my lease is for a whole appartement not for just one room

in Italy holiday starts on saturday or at lease on the next monday, so you can starts on saturday.

It is the first time that I use this package and this help too.

I don't know where to put my questions in which arguments, in which category.

Anyway if you split the question in many categories or arguments it looks like more elegant, but it doesn't solve the question problem.

I issued a question on pricing on a specific period starting on a specific day.

Any insulate reply to any insulated argument is not the reply to my question

So in my opinion, I need a specific new argument: mine.

May be there is a different solution on the package metodology, the problem is I don't know where

Dear Robert,

You cannot really set Satuday to be the starting period as people don't book like that.

You can force such a thing by closing certain days and adjusting minimum stay for 7 days, but you will still need to upload daily rates (for each day).

If you want to rent your place like that, I suggest you to use Airbnb, because BDC will not work out for you with such a setup.

Here, people mostly book for 1-2-3 nights, not many book for more (depending on your location, if a resort, you might get longer stays but in a city it's near impossible to go over 7 days).

I don't really understand why you can't let people book any day of the week and stay as much as they want. That way you can sell more rooms and make more money, rather then waiting a bunch of time for someone to book those requirements.

Not sure what package you're talking about. I think if you're using Google Translate, it might be translating this incorrectly.

Best regards,

You are completely wright.

I booked many times on booking.com following your specification.

Now I tried to use this wonderful package to rent a my appartement and I met some difficulties.

The real matter is habit: in Italy we are accustomed to rent a flat by week or couple of weeks or month during summer, mainly.

I Iive in Milan the appartement is in Riva Ligure, close to Ventimiglia (the France frontiere), 270 Km far, so I need to perform some standardisations and to wide the booking period at least to a week (i purchased a digital door lock).

3 customer have books in a few days, also for the (wong) low price and I have to respect the booking. I tried to fit the package to may needs. In my opinion the package needs only a few improvements to fit my needs.

But this is my first experience started on thursday or friday last week.

It is very difficult contact bookin people, and now I Have discovered this help feature.

I will control your proposal

Thanks
