    Hi all,

    Forgive me if this has been asked and answered, but I’ve done a search and haven’t found quite what I am looking for.

    My situation: I am building a Website for a client who owns a hotel. As might be expected with a hotel in a tourist area, my client has periods of time that are priced at different levels (seasons: high, budget high and low). My customer also charges a bit more for each major holiday. The charges for holidays that fall on a Monday start the previous saturday and end on the day of the holiday. So, for instance, for Memorial day, the rate will be $20 higher per day starting on the preceding Saturday, Sunday and then Memorial day itself.

    Now, I know I can create seasons, and that I can create smaller seasons (3 days) and set prices this way. But when I do setup seasons, I must specify a specific date (12/29/2018 to 01/01/2019 for New Year’s) time period. Or 02/01/2018 to 03/27/2019 for the Winter season. Fine. But what about follow on years. Do the seasons automatically carry over, or do I need to do this every year manually. And what about a holiday such as Thanksgiving, which falls on the third Thursday of November, not a specific date (like Easter). I see no way to simply specify, hey, set Thanksgiving, set a price, and have it carry over from year to year.

    The above makes setting up holidays, and the seasons around them, a bit of a pain. Am I missing something, is there a trick to this, or am I stuck doing everything manually, every year? And just a note, some localities have a special tax that goes into effect during certain holiday seasons, last for a week, and then go away. How does one handle this?

    That’s it, any help would be greatly appreciated. Any questions or if something is unclear, please do not hesitate to ask for clarification. Thank you for your help!

    Hi Bernadette,

    Thank you for your question. There is no option to make season prolong automatically. You can either edit existing seasons after they pass or add more season for years ahead and use on rates, booking rules and taxes/fees.

    Thank you for your feedback though.

    best regards,
    J. Davis
