Company Extras

In addition to a rental price for the hiring of a holiday accommodation, there are often also extra costs. Some are mandatory, and others are optional. In addition, there are costs that apply to all, while others are dependent based on the type of accommodation or rental period.

This section is designed to make the calculation of extras easier at the time of booking. You can specify extras that are calculated per day, per person, per booking, or even per season, so that it is clear to the customer which cost obligations, if any, are applicable, in addition to which optional extras the customer might wish to add. These extras are subsequently added directly online to the final price.

There are 2 types of Extras. It is important to determine ahead of time where you will enter each Extra:

  • Company Extras
    (found under ‘Administrator’ => ‘Parameters’ => ‘Company Extras’)
    Company Extras are those general extra costs for your company that are passed on to the customer and that are always the same price. These (may) apply to all accommodations/bookings, such as for example the reservation costs, the hire of a child bed, airport service, etc.
  • Extras
    (found under the accommodation itself; highlight the name of the accommodation and right click => Extras)
    Extras are those extra costs that are linked to the accommodation. These costs are entered specifically for the accommodation itself because the sum depends on the size and type of accommodation, such as for example the final cleaning service, airco/heating costs, as well as placing an extra bed, surcharges for pets (as not every accommodation will by default allow extra beds or pets).
