How to set a booking window?
I would like to set a "booking window", that's mean set a deadline that how far in future guests can book. For example, the guests only can book within 6 months.
How would I go on about changing the setting so that guests can only book within 6 months into the future?
Yes this is possible.
Using Extranet, go into "Rates and Availability", Each room type is a separate selection. Under the room type you will find the rate title e.g. "Standard Rate" with an arrow next to it.
Click the arrow to get a drop down list of options which will include "Maximum Advance Reservation", you set your chosen time there for whatever period you like so you can have different settings for any period of time for the stay.
But, I do not have "Maximum Advance Reservation" in my system
OK, ask BC to add to add it to your settings.
I am having the same issue.
I do not have "Maximum Advance Reservation" under the tab...
I only have "minimum advance reservation"
When is this going to be fixed?
I've created a brand new account. The bug is clearly still happening.
I am running into this issue and would like to be able to limit the amount of booking time available to 1 year. I do not have the features I need as fluff mentioned above. I am also having a real hard time seeing how to contact BC. is there an email? a ticket portal? pretty hard to actually get a hold of support here....
I have the same requirement. I don't want people to book more than 12 months in advance. I don't want to set this for individual dates, I want it to be a global setting. I can't believe this is not possible.
Contact BDC via messages in Extranet.
I haven’t tried contacting BDC about maximum availability window as I found that by syncing my calendar with Airbnb. Airbnb exports its availability window.
Note unlike Airbnb, pricing doesn’t carry forward into future dates, so you will eventually need to populate the calendar with prices again. The BDC calendar is 24 months so with a 12 month window you would need to repopulate prices at least once a year before your available dates begin shrinking.
Note2 this may only be possible with 3, 6, 9 month windows. Airbnb seems to only be exporting 12 months into the future unavailable dates.
