Setting up cancellation policies

Updated 2 years ago | 3 min read

By setting up cancellation policies, you can let guests know what to expect if they cancel or change their bookings. It also protects you from a potential loss of income.

To set up a cancellation policy, first you need to create the policy, then connect it to one or more of your Rate Plans. The new policy will only apply to bookings you receive after you set it up.

How to create a new cancellation policy

  1. Log in to the Extranet
  2. Click Property and then click Policies
  3. Click Create new cancellation policy
  4. Select whether you want to offer a free cancellation period, and if so, how long before arrival the guest can cancel for free
  5. Specify how much you’ll charge the guest if they either no-show or cancel after the free cancellation period ends (or if there’s no free cancellation period).
  6. Click Save
