Rates and Discountd
How can we set a rate or discount so they can only have one and not multiple discounts as we seem to be giving a huge discount to some guests. We supply a plentiful breakfast with a lot of choices and homemade muesli, cookies, jams and toiletries which we want to continue to do but don't want to give multiple discounts as loose too much money Thank you

Hi Jenny and Doug
There are many features that stack discounts :
You can turn off mobile rate, limit genius to only one Room Type, set restrictions on Promotions etc.
When I started out I spent hours building out a spreadsheet to reverse calculate and forecast rates minus expenses, commission , payment fee (Payments by BdC) etc.
You might want to do the same so you can plan your rates, promotions better.
There was an image on an old post of adiagram of the rates and what stacks, once I find it i'll post it.

Hello Jenny and Doug,
It's important to understand your Rate Plan (View Rates & Availability >> Rate Plan), particularly if you have a Non-Refundable Rate or Early Booker Rate.
Anything that you've activated, will add (or Stack) with your Rate Plans.
For example, if you have activated Genius 10% discount, this will stack with your Rate Plan. Or if you have activated Mobile Rate 10%, it will also stack with your Rate Plan.
Just some examples of stacking:
1) Non Refundable Rate 10% + Genius 10% = 20% discount
2) Early Booker Rate 15% + Mobile Rate 10% = 25% Discount
Can I combine discounts on rate plans and promotions? | Booking.com for Partners
This has a chart for the stacking
Hi so if we wanted only Genuis and may be early booker then turn off all the other offers, is that what most people are doing. It just seems ridiculous the discounts that some guests are getting.
Thanks for your help
This can be a long discussion so I'll try to limit it. Due to different types of and scale of accommodation buisnesses.
i.e .hotel chains V small business.
This is just an example idea.::
Thats just one example I can think of right now.
Also consider day of the week adhoc pricing, seasonal, concert events, set using , bulk edit in Calendar List View
Hi Brooke thank you so much for taking the time to explain. Gosh it can get so complicated.. I will go in and check out exactly what plans we are offering.
The only promotion that we use is Genius discount 10% + 5% and Preffered program 3%.
Perhaps to consider is also Genius dynamic pricing: "The minimum discount is set to 0%. This means that BDC may remove discounts when you’re likely to reach your occupancy targets."
