Support » Plugin: VikBooking Hotel Booking Engine & PMS » Want to make sure no rooms are booked for a specified period

  • digitalsplendid


    It is intended to ensure that no rooms are booked from 18th November to 29th November, 2019. Since rooms are booked manually as well, the system is accepting booking. Is it possible for free version to accomplish the objective of not accepting booking for the specified period?

    Those who are only using Vik Booking without our complementary Channel Manager plugin can close the rooms in two different ways:

    1. from the Configuration page by defining some “global closing dates” for the property. This is a closure at “account level”, not at “room level”. It works fine for your website, but it would not work for those who use the Pro version of Vik Booking with Vik Channel Manager. This is because OTAs do not support closing dates at “property” level, but only at “room” or “rate plan” level.

    2. from the page Calendar in Vik Booking by ticking the checkbox “close room in these dates”, a drop down menu will be displayed with the possibility of choosing the option to “close all the other rooms”. This way you will close all rooms at “room level” by setting their units available to 0 in the selected nights.

    If you opt for the first solution, then manual bookings via back-end will still be allowed. Instead, if you opt for the second solutions, the closed rooms will not be bookable on the closed nights with no availability.
