    The following Category Classes are available:

    Class Description
    Accommodation Roofed accommodation options ordinarily booked overnight including apartments, cabins, glamping tents, houses, hotel or motel rooms etc.
    Activity Tour or activity add on for accommodation reservations including jet ski hire, boat hire, tennis courts etc.
    Add Ons Additional inventory items that can be included with an existing accommodation reservation including car parks, portable cots, rollaway beds, bicycles etc.
    Dock Marina properties renting boat slips can use this Class to identify the slip Categories.
    Facility Event spaces that can be booked independently of an accommodation reservation per hour, half or full day including conference rooms, wedding venues, parlours, gazebos, ovals, halls etc.
    Compatible with the Event Management module for managing events in RMS.
    Site Powered or unpowered site for caravans, campervans, tents or other temporary structures provided by the guest for their stay.
    Ticketing Ticket sales for activities, tours or admission to a club, event or tour including historical tours available separately to any Facility or Accommodation reservation.



    The default Category Class is 'Accommodation' when creating a new Category in RMS.
