Please note:

  • Season Adjustment button is available in mapping module for all properties

  • ***NEW*** You can edit a rule, add/remove listing(s), update validity, update discount type/value, add/remove conditions, add/remove trip length, add/remove CTA and CTD.
  • You can setup multiple rules (promotion) for the same date range within one season
  • The system will allow you to setup a new season (Promotion) and rule with dates over lapping with an existing Season with same rule. There is no validation. When Airbnb receives the new season, it will automatically override overlapping dates with the newest season rule

Example:

  • Season 1 = 01-30 April
  • Season 2 = 15 April – 15 May
  • From 01-14 April, Season 1 rules will continue to apply
  • From 15 April – 15 May, Season 2 rules will override and apply
  •  

    If dates searched meets multiple rules, all discounts will apply

Example:

    • Early Bird 5%
    • Min Stay 2 night 5%
    • Dates qualifies for both, 5% discount will apply twice
