How can I restrict the results shown on my booking engine?
The hotel can configure their Booking Engine default values, to be strict or flexible and this will influence the results shown when customers make a search in the booking engine.
These filters can be set by Dates/ Occupancy, Promotions Only or All Offers, and the layout can be setup to show or not show rates in the calendar.
By choosing to show the rates, the calendar can display the total stay or the average amount.
STEP 1: First you need to go to SETUP > EXTERNAL BOOKING ENGINE.
STEP 2: Click on the CONFIGURATIONS button:
