How are Cut-off and Last-minute booking settings different?

Follow

In this article, we will go over the differences between the cut-off and last-minute booking settings.

This only applies to direct reservations (mybookings and manual reservations) and not third party sources (even when manually creating the reservation inside myfrontdesk).

These two options are part of our Rate Plans & Packages feature. To learn about this, please see How to Add Rate Plans and Packages.

Cut-Off Setting

This feature allows you to configure how many days before the arrival date guests are supposed to book. It is mainly used for properties that want to have a lot of advanced bookings by offering a heavily discounted rate if guests book at least an x amount of days in advance.

Important: adding your minimum and/or maximum length of stay will allow you more control on this offer.

For example:

Suppose you have set up booking cut off to "3 days." If a guest is looking to book for May 4th, your guest will only be able to book (or see availability) before May 1st.

Last-Minute Booking setting

This feature allows you to configure how many days before the arrival date guests can book. It is mainly used to boost last-minute reservations.

Important: adding your minimum and/or maximum length of stay will allow you more control on this offer.

For example:

Suppose you have set up last-minute booking to "3 days." If a guest is looking to book for May 4th, your guest will only be able to book (or see availability) after May 1st.

**NOTE: If the departure date is out of package rate range, the guest will be charged the base rate instead of the package prices.
