Is it possible to stop "last minute bookings"?



we want to exclude the possibility to make a last minute reservation. Is that possible and how do we arrange that in the system?

Hi Maud,


Yes there is an extended field in the calendar list view called Min Advanced Reservation***.

Expand your room type, then base rate plan, in list view.


min advanced reservation


Guests can only check-in on this date. If they book at least X days in advance


So if you enter a number here for say 2days as  '2', then you should not get last minute bookings.


Note you can use Xh for hours when you want to allow last minute up to X hours on same day too.

Hello, is this still apply-able? I've tried to set the last minute bookings and I wasn't successful, the settings look a little bit different now. Do you also know how to set minimum nights of stay?


Thank you in advance!
