Controlling day-of reservations

For the Winter I will be coming to my rental property only when I have guests, as it is a very slow time. How do I make a setting so that I can have one or two days' notice?

Hi!-Casairisorbetello and welcome to the forum.

As far as I know, this option is not available. You have to ask BDC to activate it for you. Write a message to them about this in your Extranet Inbox.

It's called block arrival and block departure setting.

Good luck and please give us your feedback...

How can I stop guests from booking and arriving on the same day

If you want to avoid same-day bookings, you can set this up on the Extranet.

Depending on your property type, one of the following options will be available.

If you have a calendar showing 30 days at one time, follow the steps below:

1. Under the Rates & Availability tab, click on Calendar (or the relevant room name).

2. Click on a date (or dates).

3. Click Minimum Advance Reservation on the right-hand side of the page.

4. Select 1 day from the drop-down menu.

5. Click Save when you’re done.

For other calendar types, follow these steps:

1. Under the Rates & Availability tab, click Calendar and you’ll see a list of your rooms next to a range of dates.

2. Click the drop-down arrow on the room rate you want to modify.

3. Scroll down to Minimum Advance Reservation.

4. In order to avoid same-day reservations, you need to set this restriction as 1D (i.e. one day) and press Enter to save your changes.

5. If you want to apply the restriction for a longer period, click Edit under Minimum advance reservation, adjust the period and click on Save changes.

Have a nice day...

I tried these instructions and they do not work. I was unable to view the Minimum Advance Reservation button on my calendar page.

Anyone else?

Hi! Sherry and welcome to the forum. In your calendar change to the monthly view. You will find it under the month. Scroll down it’s there. Try again..
Good luck...
