Definition of automatic closure

The Automatic closure rule applies a stop sell to selected room rates when the room type availability reaches a certain level. This is useful to apply when demand is high, availability is low, and you want to close out low- profit-margin room rates.

➕ For example:

  • You have a low-yield room rate such as a "Single room - super midweek saver" and a high-yield room rate such as "Single room - standard rate".

  • You can set an Automatic closure rule to allow the sale of both while availability is high, and apply a stop sell to the low-yield room rate when availability is low.

Set up an automatic closure

⚠️ Note:

  • The Automatic closure rule is applicable for the availability of a specific room type, not the total availability of all room types in the property;

  • An automatic stop sell will be applied to the availability of the selected room types once they reach their set limit.
