    Information

    A Rate Lookup is the linking component that RMS uses to know which combination of Rate Type and Rate Table to reference during any Rate Period.

    A Rate does not become available use until a Rate Lookup has been created.

    The Rate Structure selected on the Rate Lookup will determine which Rate Types and Rate Tables are available for selection.

    Two Rate Structures are available that will determine how the Rate can be used and what calculation options are available.

    The Direct Rate Structure is the most flexible with Hourly, Daily, Nightly, Per Guest and Extended Stay options that can be used in-house, on the RMS Internet Booking Engine and for select Channel Connections.

    The OTA Rate Structure is limited to Nightly and Extended Stay calculation options that are accepted by Online Travel Agents.



    Category, Area, Reservation, Guest and Rate are default System Labels that can be customised.



    System Administrators will require Security Profile access to setup this feature.
