Multiple Rates at Agoda

Agoda can support more than one price per room for example to send prices for different minimum stays, meal options or refundable and non-refundable prices. There are two options:

1. Derived (Child) Prices Agoda can auto calculate child rates from one master rate we send. Ask your Agoda rep to set this up. This option means you only need to send one rate from Beds24 to Agoda and Agoda will auto-calculate the other rate options.

2. Multiple Rate Plan Ids

Agoda can set up multiple rate plan ids for each room, each with pre-defined booking conditions. Beds24 can map a different Beds24 rate or offer to each Agoda rate. Please use these instructions. If you do not have the appropriate rate ids you need to request Agoda to add them.


If you do not have the appropriate rate plan ids you need to request Agoda to add them.

Price Multiplier

If you want to add a multiplier to your prices, for example because of a different currency to your Beds24 currency, add a * followed by the multiplier number to your hotel id.

For example a Hotel Id setting 123456*1.23 will multiply all prices by 1.23 sent for Hotel id 123456. (i.e. raised by 23%) Lower prices can be sent with a multiplier less than 1, i.e. 123456*0.85 will send a price 85% of the normal price (i.e. lowered by 15%)

To convert the price of bookings imported add a * after the multiplier, for example 123456*1.23* will divide the price of the booking by 1.23.

You can also use currency conversion template variable. All currencies supported by the booking page currency selector can be used.

Example: *[CONVERT:IDR-EUR] will convert Indonesian Rupees to Euros.

Example: *[CONVERT:IDR-EUR][/]0.85 will convert Indonesian Rupees to Euros and send a price 85% of the normal price (i.e. lowered by 15%)

If this is not the reason check which prices are in your Agoda system.
