  • Create one room double
  • Create one room single

2. Set up your "virtual" room:

  • Create one room suite

3. Set up the room dependency settings in SETTINGS->PROPERTIES->ROOMS->DEPENDENCIES as follows:

  • Suite:
    • Requires Availability in = double
    • Requires Availability in = single
    • Combination Logic = all rooms must be available

Leave all other settings set to the defaults.

  • Double:
    • Include Bookings from = Suite

Leave all other settings set to the defaults.

  • Single:
    • Include Bookings from = Suite

Leave all other settings set to the defaults.

 Note  Test dependencies carefully. If you are using dependencies please test thoroughly to make sure your set up reflects your rules. If you are connecting one physical room more than once to a booking channel you are risking overbookings.
