Turn off the function of last minute booking

Dear Sir or Madam,


Please advise if there is any method to turn off the last minute bookings, for example at least 1 day ago to book the reservation settings and etc.

Hope to hear from you soon.


Thank you,

Best regards,

Chin Chin

Hi! Chin Chin and welcome to the Partner Community.

In your Extranet Promotions tab you can deactivate this Promotion.

Also in your Calendar in the list view in the left hand side under your rates open the small drop down window....”min. advance reservation” there you can make your changes.

Wish this helps you....

I don't think we can do that. However please recheck with your Account Manager.

Please , I also had the same issue today and could not turn off anywhere the last minute booking option. Please if someone can give me clear instructions to turn it off. No way to turn it off as Asamopoulou suggested. No option for last minute booking. thank you

Hi Juan,

If you do not see "min. advance reservation"  in your Calendar...then you have to message booking.com to add it to your Calendar...

You can add this restriction to your calendar and select how many hours/days you want notice so partners dont show last minute at your door.

Hope this helps a little...

I know this is a old post. But I myself came here looking for an answer to the above question. But I found a better way to do it than the previous answers given here. So sharing it, thinking it might help someone.

Go to "Rate Plans" under the "Rates & Availability" menu.

Click on each rate plan shown (if you have more than one) and "Edit"

Go to the "Bookable" field and "Edit"

Choose "Set number of days before check-in" and input the number of days

Thank you very much for this, I was able to follow your suggestion.  I got horribly caught out last night with a last minute booking at 9pm at night. The guest obviously didn't read through the booking conditions beforehand and didn't notice that I require an additional security deposit. The guy did not have funds to pay the security deposit, so we had to turn him away because of that. It was very stressful so late at night, and now I have to try and fix this to get the guy refunded for the night. This won't happen to me again!  Thanks for the assistance.
