    Information

    A Rate Type Cancellation Policy will apply to the Reservation any time that Rate Type is selected.

    A Rate Type is the charge description that identifies a pricing structure used by Reservations.

    Derived Rates determine their pricing using an adjustment amount set against the selected Master Rate Type.

    A Rate Type will only be available for selection on a reservation if it has been linked with a Rate Period and Rate Table using a Rate Lookup.

    A Cancellation Policy can be setup on a Rate Type, Derived Rate Type, Rate Type Property Rule, Rate Table and Rate Period or selected on the Reservation.

    The Cancellation Policy applied to the reservation will be determined by the following hierarchy.







    Reservation












    Rate Type Property Rule










    Rate Period








    Rate Table






    Derived Rate Type




    Rate Type


    The Cancellation Policy selected on the Reservation will override the policy setup on the Rate Type, Derived Rate Type, Rate Type Property Rule, Rate Table or Rate Period.

    The Cancellation Policy setup on the Rate Type Property Rule will override the policy setup on the Rate Type, Derived Rate Type, Rate Table or Rate Period.

    The Cancellation Policy setup on the Rate Period will override the policy setup on the Rate Type, Derived Rate Type or Rate Table.

    The Cancellation Policy setup on the Rate Table will override the policy setup on the Rate Type or Derived Rate Type.

    The Cancellation Policy setup on the Derived Rate Type will override the policy setup on the Rate Type.

    The Cancellation Policy setup on the Rate Type will be overridden by any setup on the Derived Rate Type, Rate Type Property Rule, Rate Table and Rate Period or selected on a Reservation.
