    Availability

    Hoseasons uses Category Availability for the length of stay set on the Rate Type.

    Only Areas within the Category that are available for the full length of stay set on the Rate Type will be included as available to Hoseasons.

    Maximising Occupancy on the Booking Chart by moving Reservations to close gaps and create more continuous availability will improve booking opportunities across all channel connections using Category Availability.

    Area/Date
    1st January
    2nd January
    3rd January
    4th January
    101
    Reservation #1


    102
    Reservation #2


    Reservation #3

    In the above example there are 3 nights available for this Category on the 2nd, 3rd & 4th of January.

    If the length of stay set on the Rate Type is set to '3' the availability sent to Hoseasons for this Category arriving on 2nd January would be set to '0'.

    To make availability be sent to Hoseasons for arrival 2nd January, Reservation #3 can be moved to Area 101.

    Regularly moving Reservations on the Booking Chart to close gaps maximises occupancy opportunities.
