A Basic Deal is a promotion that offers you total flexibility to adapt it to your own pricing strategy and business needs. That means you can choose the discount amount, the stay dates when the deal applies, and the minimum length of stay.

Basic Deals can help you quickly take advantage of opportunities in your market to capture more traveler demand. You can use a Basic Deal to adjust your prices in response to specific situations or for particular time periods, such as when a popular event will be taking place in your area.

You can also use Basic Deals as part of your wider pricing strategy to offer discounts for a particular time period based on the demand you’re expecting to see. A Basic Deal can also help generate extra bookings for periods that you know your occupancy is likely to be lower than usual. Once the deal is live, you can manage it anytime if things change.

On our platform, we display your Basic Deal by crossing out the original price of a potential guest’s stay and displaying the discounted price next to it. Our research shows that crossing out prices like this improves conversion rates and generates more bookings.

You can set up a Basic Deal anytime and for multiple deals ahead of time. Each deal will only be visible to potential guests during the time period that you select.
