How do I create a promotion, discount or voucher code for the direct booking engine on my website?

Firstly, you need to create a promotion.

  • Under Rates from the main menu select Promotions, and then click on the Create Promotion button on the top right hand corner.
  • On the page that opens, fill the Name field with a name of your choice.
  • If you would like to apply this promotion in conjunction with other discounts, tick the Apply On Other Discounts box.
  • At the present time, only Amounts, Days Before Arrival, Number of Sleepers, and Number of Nights are available. For these options, you can specify for example that you would like to consider the promotion for all the bookings whose Amount (ie total price of the reservation) is between 20 GBP to 200 GBP; or for all the bookings whose Number of Nights are between 3 to 10 nights.
  • Then you can determine how you would like to set the promotion: Percentage Per Item or Fixed Rate Per Item, or a combination of both options simultaneously.
  • Click on Save and Close.

Now that you have created a promotion, you need to specify how it should be applied for it to be activated. To do so, follow the steps below:

  • Clicking on the created promotion. On the top right of the page, you will be able to see and click on the button “+Promotion Application“.
  • You can use the Booking Date and Arrival Date fields to specify the periods for which the promotion should apply.
  • The Limit allows you to limit the number of times that a promotion can be used.
  • The Explicit box function is not available at the moment, so please ignore this.
  • By ticking or leaving the box “Can be applied alongside other promotions” unticked, you can determine how you would like the promotion to be applied.
  • Then, under Vouchers title, you can specify the number of Vouchers and their codes.
  • Finally, “Apply on Specific Unit Types” allows you to select specific unit types to which you want the promotion to be applied.
  • Click on Save and Close.

Please note that once the promotion and its application have been created, you will also be able to access the promotions from the booking view page.
