Non Bookable

To assist property in filling in gaps due to minimum night restriction, we have introduced ‘Non Bookable’ feature.


This feature is easy to use and provides a bird’s-eye view of where the gaps are. It allows a property to update minimum night restrictions based on availability. This feature can only be managed via Instant extranet.

  6. Date with restriction causing gap
  7. Original minimum night requirement with suggested change to fill in gap

How to manage?

Example:



  1. Minimum Night Restriction = 3
  2. 21 May has no availability which makes the deal not bookable
  3. In the feature, you see the original restriction value and suggested change
  4. 19 May > possible for a 2 night or 1 night booking 
  5. 20 May > only possible for 1 night booking
  6. The feature allows you to change the suggested value to a lower value only
  1. Update minimum night restriction
  2. Click on Update


Other information:

System will only identify gaps for period of up to a year

The feature is available to properties managing restrictions via PMS. The property however has to manage manually via Instant extranet.

If/ when an update is pushed from PMS for the date(s) where restriction was manually changed using this feature, it will be overridden by PMS updates.

Logs are available to track changes made via ‘Non Bookable’ feature. The mode to identify updates made via Non Bookable module is UN.
