There will be times where, for example, a property manager has a 7 night minimum rule in place. Then, for whatever reason, a booking is allowed that creates a period of days that are <7 nights that are book ended by two reservations. At that point, the 7 night rule is not possible to be enforced.
Lodgix has offered an option since our inception to “ignore the minimum night rule and allow guest to book online.”
This is a property specific setting.
The limitation when offering to ignore the minimum night rule has historically been that all bookings will then be allowed. So even though the 7 night rule cannot be enforced and even though the property manager might like to fill those dates, they may not want to fill those dates with all one night rentals.
To help with that, we’ve introduced a more granular setting that can be applied:
This setting allows a floor to be set so in those events where a rule cannot be met, further restrictions can be set to allow bookings that are “at least” X of nights. Many simply don’t have the resources to allow for a one night or two night booking, so for those customers this setting should be quite helpful!
