    Hi all,

    I want to have different rates for Week, Weekend and Midweek. For all of the three, I have a summer and a winter season added.

    Week
    Check-in: Friday
    Check-out: Friday

    Weekend:
    Check-in: Friday
    Check-out: Monday

    Midweek:
    Check-in: Monday
    Check-out: Friday

    I’ve added this to the booking rules. Besides that I’ve added max/min stay in nights:

    Week
    Minimum nights: 6 nights
    Maximum nights: 7 nights

    Weekend
    Minimum nights: 2 nights
    Maximum nights: 3 nights

    Midweek
    Minimum nights: 3 nights
    Maximum nights: 4 nights

    After that, I’ve added rates for this apartment. I’ve added a night price for the apartment, for every season.

    First question: Is it possible what I describe up here?

    Second question: I’m getting so frustrated. I’ve tried everything to tweak it, but I can’t find this mistake.

    The problem is, that you can only book the room starting on Friday (that should be for the weekend or weekly rates), but according to the seasons/booking rules and rates, you should be able to book something starting on Monday (Midweek) as well. When selecting the Friday rate, it automatically​ select the end date, 7 days later. But when booking for a weekend, you should be able to select the Monday as well. That’s not possible.

    I hope you understand what I mean up here. When someone can help me I would be very happy! When you want to have a look, let me know so I can send you login details.

    By the way, the check-in day for the weekend and the week rate are both on Friday. But when changing one of them to another day, nothing changes.

    That’s logical because the check-in day for a Midweek is on Monday and I can’t book that one either.

    When changing the order of the check-in day in the Booking Rules (so now WEEK is at the top), but when changing it to WEEKEND at the top; then you can only book a weekend.

    Why is this? I can’t imagine I’m the first one doing this. :'(

    Here’s my advice from what I can understand (its a little confusing because you specify check-in / check-out days, but then have variable lengths of stay – some of which don’t correspond to those days):
    I’d go in and set up Monday and Friday both as check-in and check-out days. Select Sunday as a check out day as well. Set your rates for each of the days of the week using seasons. Set Min and Max as 2 and 7.

    Simplest solution if you’re willing to clean every day is to just set a different rate for each day of the week, using seasons, and leave it at that.

    Hi Chrissy,
    The Check-in/out days are leading. Sorry for the confusing numbers.

    Are you willing to have a look in my wordpress panel? I would really appreciate that.

    I am having exactly the same problem. I have set check-in days as either Friday, Saturday or Monday. On the calendar, you can only check in on a Friday.

    Hi Steve, could you please describe the needed booking rules in more detail? What are the check-in and check-out dates, and minimum/maximum reservation periods? Thanks.

    I can get mid-week and weekend rates to work correctly, but adding a Saturday to Saturday full week overrides everything else and does not allow you to book for a weekend or midweek break.

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks for the clarification and accept my apologies for the delay. You do not need to add a season for Sunday -Sunday. To allow these days for the check-in and check-out you need to adjust the booking rules for your weekend and midweek seasons at Bookings > Booking Rules.
    To set custom price for this period you need to add the same variable price for 7 nights to both season prices (midweek and weekend) https://motopress.com/document/hotel-booking-weekly-monthly-rates/

    Let me know if it is helpful.

    Sorry, I am a little confused. What I want to happen is
    Check-in Saturday must check out Saturday, Check-in Monday must check out the following Friday (4 nights) Check-in Friday must check out the following Monday ( 3 nights).
    An idiot’s guide on how to set this up would be fantastic.
    Many thanks
    Steve

    – add season for Weekend Saturday and Sunday
    – add season for Weekdays Monday – Friday

    – add rate and add both seasons with the same or different prices
    https://prnt.sc/DVYzV6RHBc5U
    – add booking rules like on the screenshot https://prnt.sc/Cg14_0XO8dwA
