Site-wide check-in and check-out times are displayed to the user when booking and purchasing and reviewing past bookings.
- Go to: WordPress Admin > Bookings > Settings > Accommodation
- Enter the check-in and check-out times.
The add-on follows the same setup as WooCommerce Bookings, except it gives you the option to use an Accommodation product.
- Go to: WordPress Admin > Products > Add New and add a new product using the Accommodation product type.
- Enter general settings, such as cancellation policy and max length of booking.
- Go to the Rates tab and set a standard room rate.
- Go to the Availability tab and set number of rooms and other info.*
More information at WooCommerce Bookings documentation.
If you want to charge different rates for weekends, holidays or another occasion:
- Go to the Rates tab.
- Click Add Range, and a new row appears in the rates table.
- Select the type of rule you want to create from the dropdown, i.e., Specific nights (December 25), entire months or weeks, or specific days of the week. Rates are configured for nights, not days, so both the start and end date are used to calculate special pricing.
- Enter a cost for the rule. This price is used instead of the standard rate, if customers select a night that falls within range.
To create a Custom Availability Range, such as weekdays only or no Sundays, see: WooCommerce Bookings — Creating a Bookable Product.
If the prices shown on the product do not match the prices defined in the dashboard, the caching mechanism used for pricing calculation is most likely still using old information (e.g. when you updated the prices, or when changing a Bookable product to an Accommodation product).
The quickest way to make sure that your prices are correct is to save your existing accommodation product again. The save will update the cache and the price on your site will now reflect what you have defined in your dashboard.
