    • Use the filters to quickly select specific options.

Definition of selling limit

The Selling limit rule applies a stop sell to selected room rates, when a specific rate plan has been sold a set number of times. This restricts the sales of specific combinations of room types and rate plans, and eliminates the risk of overselling particular offers.

➕ For example:

  • You have a "Champagne and breakfast package" that includes accommodation and a daily bottle of champagne with breakfast.

  • Your champagne inventory is limited, so you want to provide a limited number of bottles each day.

  • You can set a Selling limit on this package to prevent it from overselling.

The Selling limit rule is set on a rate plan basis. The limit counts the rate plan’s total sales across all linked room types. This is different to the Automatic closure , Availability limit (amount) , and Availability limit (percentage) rules, which are set on a room type basis.

➕ For example:

  • Your "Standard room - Champagne and breakfast package" room rate is booked twice.

  • Your "Double room - Champagne and breakfast package" is booked once.

  • Both room rates are part of the “Champagne and breakfast package” rate plan.

  • This counts as three towards the Selling limit , as the rate plan has been booked three times.
