Quickly override your nightly rates and minimum stay

Easily change or update your default rate, derived rates, and/or minimum stay without needing to change their already configured rate settings or rules. This nightly override feature allows you to select a day or time frame in the multi-unit calendar view and manually override the rate and minimum stay for that specific time frame. 

💡 Notes:

  • If you want to set a different price or minimum stay for a period of time, you can create season rates.
  • The nightly override function is only available for owners with the permission “This owner can edit the Calendar and the Reservations”. Learn more about your owners' permissions.

Use cases

This feature will allow you:

  • To apply different rates and minimum stays with only a few clicks and without updating the rates and rules configured in your rental settings.

  2. Select the Multi Unit calendar view.

  5. Edit the Nightly Rate price and/or minimum stay, and click Save.Screenshot

Lodgify will immediately update Booking.com, Expedia, VRBO, and Airbnb.

💡 Notes:

  • Overriding the nightly rate will only update the room rate and minimum stay in Booking.com, Expedia, VRBO, and Airbnb. Fees and taxes will not be affected. If you have a mark-up it will apply as normal. Learn what pricing details are exported from Lodgify to Booking.com, Expedia, VRBO, and Airbnb.
  • Overriding your nightly rates and/or minimum stays does not override your check-in/out restrictions.
  • This feature will not work with external rates (PriceLabs, Beyond). In case you activate external rates (even without actually connecting to PriceLabs), you will not be able to edit or delete the nightly override. In this case, please ensure to switch off external rates here in order to edit the nightly overrides. If you use PriceLabs / Beyond to manage your rates, the rates received from PriceLabs will always replace any overridden rates.

Using the Nightly Override feature with derived rates

If you are using derived rates in your Lodgify account (to be exported to Booking.com and/or Expedia), you can choose to override one or all of your derived rates. For either option, follow steps 1-3 of the instructions above for overriding a nightly rate. Then, follow the instructions below for your desired option:

If you wish to override... then...
All derived rates

Keep your default rate as the selected Rate Type, and tick the box Recalculate and override all derived rates.

Removing a nightly override

If you override the nightly rate and/or minimum stay, you can easily return to your original settings if you change your mind later on.

  1. Go to your Main Menu in the top left corner and select Calendar.
  2. Select the Multi calendar view.
  3. Find the rental you wish to edit. Double-click on the box, or click on the box representing the start and end date of the period for which you wish to remove the nightly override.
  4. Select Delete nightly override.

    💡 Note: In case you activate external rates (even without actually connecting to PriceLabs), you will not be able to edit or delete the nightly override. In this case, please ensure to switch off external rates here in order to edit the nightly overrides.

Your nightly rate and minimum stay for the selected time frame will instantly return to the rate and minimum stay you have entered, in the rates section of the rental.
