Restrictions offer a way to apply certain conditions to the reservations you receive – offering you maximum control over your availability.

If you apply restrictions for certain dates, rooms and/or rate plans, guests can only book your rooms/units when their search criteria meets the conditions you’ve set.

For instance, if you’ve applied a ‘Minimum length of stay’ restriction of three days, your property will not appear in the search results of guests looking for two-night stays.


Option 1: List view calendar 

If you’re using the List view calendar, you can apply these restrictions to your rooms and rates:

  • Minimum length of stay: set the minimum number of nights guests can book your property or room for.
  • Maximum length of stay: set the maximum number of nights guests can book your property or room for.
  • Exact stay: set the exact number of nights guests can book your property or room for.
  • Minimum advance reservation: set the minimum period for how far in advance guests can book your property or room.
  • Maximum advance reservation: set the maximum period for how far in advance guests can book your property or room.
  • No arrivals: close your property or room for arrivals on days where you’re unable to check guests in. Guests can’t book a stay that starts on those days (but can still book those days if they fall within a wider date range).
  • No departures: close your property or room for departures on days where you’re unable to check guests out. Guests can’t book a stay that ends on those days (but can still book those days if they fall within a wider date range).
  • Minimum length of stay from arrival: set the minimum number of nights a guest can book your property or room for when booking on the arrival date.
  • Maximum length of stay from arrival: set the maximum number of nights a guest can book your property or room for when booking on the arrival date.

Note: If some of these restrictions are not available for your property and you want to set them up, contact your local Booking.com support and ask them to enable your restrictions.


Option 2 :  Monthly view calendar

If you’re using the Monthly view calendar, you can only add:

  • Minimum length of stay: set the minimum number of nights guests can book your property or room for.
  • Minimum advance reservation: set the minimum period for how far in advance guests can book your property or room.
  • No departures: close your property or room for departures on days where you’re unable to check guests out. Guests can’t book a stay that ends on those days (but can still book those days if they fall within a wider date range).
  • No arrivals: close your property or room for arrivals on days where you’re unable to check guests in. Guests can’t book a stay that starts on those days (but can still book those days if they fall within a wider date range).
