Multiple Rates

Multiple rates can be created for each date, for example to send prices for different occupancies, minimum stays, meal options or refundable and non-refundable prices.

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

  • Click on the "Get the Ostrovok Room and Rate Codes for this Property Code" link to view all mapping codes for this property.


Multiple Rate Ids using Rates

Each Beds24 rate can be mapped to any valid Ostrovok rate plan id that is active and not derived or linked. On the CHANNEL tab of each Beds24 rate is a setting to enter an Ostrovok rate plan id. If this setting is left blank, the rate plan id defined in the Beds24 channel manager settings for Ostrovok will be used. If the Beds24 rate should be mapped to an alternative Ostrovok rate plan id, enter the Ostrovok rate plan id here.

Multiple Rate Ids using Offers or Daily Prices

Beds24 supports up to four price "offers" for each room. Each of the four offers can be mapped to a different Ostrovok rate plan id. This is particularly useful when mapping daily prices to Ostrovok.

To define the Ostrovok rate plan id for each offer, separate the rate plan ids with colons. For example the following Beds24 rate plan id setting will map offer 1 to rate plan id 11111, offer 2 to rate plan id 22222, offer 3 to rate plan id 33333 and offer 4 to rate plan id 44444:

11111:22222:33333:4444

If offer 1 is used only for the Beds24 booking page and only offers 2,3 and 4 are used for Ostrovok leave the first rate plan id blank and start with a colon. For example :22222:33333:44444

The settings for daily prices allow each daily price row to be assigned to a specific offer and therefore mappable to different Ostrovok rate plan ids


Same Price to Multiple Rate Plan Ids

If a Beds24 price should be sent to multiple Ostrovok rate plan ids, the multiple rate plan ids can be entered with a comma separating them. For example '12345678,123456789

This can be used to allow a daily price set to "Do not allow lower prices" to override multiple Ostrovok rate plan ids. If the comma separated rate plan ids are defined in the channel manager rate plan id setting and each individual Beds24 rate contains it's specific Ostrovok rate plan id, each rate will be mapped to it's rate plan id and daily prices will be mapped to all the specified rate plan ids, over-riding the rate price when appropriate.

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 property code setting 123456*12.34 will multiply all prices by 12.34 sent for hotel id 123456.

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

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