Bookings

star More than one room can be booked at a time.

star Create different guest types. If you charge per person per night then different guest types can alter the price of a room or rooms, pensioners or children will then receive automatic discounts.
star If you need to, you can configure minimum occupancies of specific guest types for individual room types, ensuring that Mum and Dad don't lumber you with their kids!
star Single Person Supplement functionality means that if one person occupies a room normally used by two people then a single person supplement charge can be applied to a booking. This can even be configured to be different for individual rooms.
