  • If the length of stay is less than 7 days the per day rate is applied.
  • If the length of stay is from 7 to 29 days the per week and per day prices are used. Each whole week will be charged at the per week rate and any remaining days will be charged at the per day rate.
  • If the length of stay is 30 days or more the per month price is used. Each whole month will be charged at the per month rate and any remaining days will be charged at one thirtieth of the per month rate rate.
Note: If the arrival and departure dates span more than one rate band, the prices in each band will be used to calculate the total cost. However, the rate band for a week or month is determined by the date of the first day in that week or month.

Different Price for Each Day

The year is split into individual days and a different rate can be entered for each room type on each day of the year.

Note: When using this type of rate you should remember that you will have a considerable amount of data to enter and maintain.

Low Season Closure

If your property closes for part of the year you can tell RezEasy to block reservations that period. This is done in two ways:

  • When you publish your reservation system you can specify up to 2 periods to block per year.
  • You can use the set availability feature of the online admin to set availability to zero for one or more periods.
