What are base and seasonal rates?
Rates are essential so guests can find you in dated searches – without a rate your property will be invisible.
Base rates (previously known as 'default rates') show automatically for any dates not covered by your seasonal prices. This means every date has a rate, making travelers more likely to book with you.
Important: without rates your listing will appear at the bottom of the search results and be completely excluded from any dated searches. Set your rates so your property never misses out.
Use seasonal rates to vary your prices according to the time of year. You may want to increase them for popular times, e.g. for the summer vacation, public days or special local events. Lower, out-of-season prices will encourage guests to book for the quieter periods.
We recommend setting seasonal rates for at least the next 12-18 months. Set a reminder for every six months or so to add some more.
