Booking.no have not solved this yet as this is not a problem on other sites. I would advice Booking.com to become more flexible as this prevent me to use Booking.com for all my properties. I am afraid to block off all days except Saturdays in high season because this shows as already booked. The calendar is transferred to other sites, so this is not a satisfactory solution. I hope these comments will help Booking.com and is not just an automatic and cheap function letting clients to helping each other without any resources given by Booking.com. We are paying a extremely high fee for their service.
In the low season I use time to improve the property, make maintenance, so it is in good shape for the season. The art is to get the highest price in the season where guests are coming anyway. I give a discount to regular guests that are coming back year after year and who book directly. My properties are near the Mediterian in France.
If I rent out in low season I would be looking for activities that can be offered by help of services in the area, walking groups, yoga, art classes, etc.
Th same problem has been commented on by several owners now, so Booking.com need to find a technical way to solve this requirenment without having any negative effect on the calendar date availability. The recommended solution is not ideal.
I received an answer on this. You can close all other days for booking but Saturdays. However I do not want that because it looks like it is no availability.
That is the answer I got, just make it avaliable to book on Saturdays. However, it looks like it is not available rest of the week so I have not used this function.
