Length of Stay (LOS) Discounts

There are two ways to do weekly or monthly rates. You can create separate weekly/monthly rates (covered in the Rate Engine Bible). That's great for some scenarios, but sometimes it's easier to do a nightly rate and then apply a length of stay discount based on a percentage.

Here's how to add a 7 night length of stay discount:

  1. Go to Settings > Surcharges & Discounts and create one.
  2. Set it to a Discount Type, applied Automatically and enter the description
  3. Under Discount, set it to a Percent type and set the percent discount
  4. Under Criteria in the Booking Fields section, add a Number of Nights is Greater Than or Equal To 7.

A monthly discount is the same, just with a 30 nights criteria:

If you have multiple discounts that match the criteria, all will be applied. So if you have both weekly and monthly discounts, you can either stack them -- i.e. a 10% weekly discount and a 10% monthly discount which means the guest will get 20% total discount. Or you can set exclusion criteria on the weekly so it won't apply for 30 days or longer by adding an additional criteria:

Channel Caveats

OwnerRez can push discounts to your connected channels using API and Channel Bridge connections.  However, the different channels handle length-of-stay discounts differently.

Airbnb

Airbnb fully supports length-of-stay discounts.  However, they handle and display them in a confusing manner.

For LOS discounts that apply specifically 7 and 28 nights, Airbnb interprets and displays them as built-in weekly and monthly rates.

For LOS discounts that apply other than to exactly those number of days, Airbnb interprets them as rule sets, and the discount is just built into the rate presented to the guest.

HomeAway/VRBO

LOS discounts are built into the rates presented to the guest.

Booking.com

OwnerRez' Booking.com API connection does not support LOS discounts.  However, you can log into your Booking.com control panel and create a promotion.  This will be applied to bookings as appropriate.
