Now the system will apply package on booking for packaged rate type, in which the system will post inclusion(s) charges defined for a package on folio and those inclusion(s) will be bifurcated from the nightly room charge.
For more details please go through the below contents,…
From the eZee absolute configuration, we can define the package on a Rate Type itself from Rate -> Rate Type module. Here you can define the existing rate type as packaged or the same for a new one too. Please see the below screenshot:
Once you set the rate type as a package, the system will show you one block where you have to configure further details for the package. Please see the below screenshot,
Night(s): Define night for a package, based on the weekly, monthly, and yearly package as per need. If you have checked marked ‘Consolidate on Folio’ then the bifurcation of the package on folio/Invoice will be based on the defined night(s).
Valid From & Till: If you want to sell rate type as a package for a specific duration like in peak season or in the festival, you can define package validity by date range. Within that date range, rate type will be treated as package otherwise same as normal (without package).
Min Night(s) & Max Night(s): If you want to sell rate type as a package for a specific night(s) of booking then set night validity. If booking night(s) are falling in this range, then the package will be applied on bookings, otherwise not.
Consolidate on Folio: Based on the defined night for a package, if you want to see a consolidated room charge as a single entry, then check this setting. Otherwise, the system will show you room charges including the inclusion charges.
Note:: According to this setting, the print folio will display room charge(s) separately or together.
Display name on Folio: It’s optional if you set any custom name for the package, then that name will display as a consolidated entry otherwise rate type name will be displayed.
Inclusion List :
Inclusion: The system will list all your extra charge(s). You can set a unique charge(s) once only per package.
Posting Rule: The system will list the posting rule. If you have set the posting rule on the extra charge itself, then it will be auto-set on charge selection. Otherwise, you can set it manually.
Charge Rule: The system will list the charge rule. If you have set the charge rule on the extra charge itself, then it will be auto-set on charge selection. Otherwise, you can set it manually.
Rate: if you have defined rates of the extra charge itself, then it will be auto-set on charge selection. Otherwise, you can set it manually.
Tax Incl. : You can define the inclusion rate as exclusive or inclusive of tax.
This is all about how you can configure the package. Based on your needs, you can configure packages on other rate types also. In a nutshell, you have to define the rate type itself as a package. Now we will see how it will be reflected on the booking.
Note:: You have to configure your rack rate as well as your rate including your package rate. As package rate will be bifurcated from this rate on booking. Please keep a note of this point before starting with its actual usage.
If you have defined your rate type as a package, the system will display its icon and respective charges on the rate type list. Please see the below screenshot,
eZee Reservation / Channel:
Same as the rate type module of eZee Absolute Configuration, in eZee Reservation also you can configure the package in the rate type module.
eZee Absolute Front:
Let’s take one booking from walk In / Reservation screen with the Package rate type as we have defined the package on this rate type. Once you select the rate type, the package option will appear in the operation list as shown in the below screenshot.
If you click on the package option, a below-displayed screen will appear.
The defined package will be shown here. You can modify it based on need otherwise default configured package will be applied on booking. Here we can consider like, all day-wise inclusion will be mapped with its respected posting date’s room charge. According to this, based on the defined posting rule of inclusion, you can shift its binding with room charge wherever you want. See the below screenshot, showing its default shuffle when you click on the Inclusion button. You can shift inclusion based on your needs.
Likewise, you can modify the package on group booking too. Let’s see the below screenshot showing package provision on group booking.
You can modify the package for the whole group once from the Group options. Except that you can do the same for each individual booking too. See the below screenshot for the same.
You can see package details in the audit trail too. Like which definition is applied on booking, which inclusion is posted, and all.
This is all about how you can modify the default applicable package at the time of inserting the booking into the system.
Note:: If a package is applied on booking then the discount will not be applicable and the same vice versa.
Once a booking is inserted, there’s still a provision to modify the applied package from the edit transaction. Let’s see how it is.
You can see it’s all details in the audit trail, like which inclusion is newly added or removed and updated with details. If you remove all inclusion then the whole package gets removed from the booking and the respected audit log will be displayed in the audit trail screen. You can see its posting on the folio in the Folio Detail tab. Let’s see below.
Here, If the itemized list is not checked, you can see a consolidated view based on the configured night as a consolidated folio entry.
