Definition and benefits of yield rules

Yield rules can be set up to help you control and automate the sale of your most profitable rooms, on your most profitable channels, during demand fluctuations. This can help increase your profit margins.

You can set yield rules to:

  • Only allow the sale of rates with the highest return when availability is low and demand is high. For example, during the high season.

  • Set availability limits to reduce the risk of overselling rates with the lowest return. For example, when there is unexpected demand during low season.

  • Set availability limits on the number of room types or packages available on specific channels, managing guest acquisition costs, and reducing the risk of overbookings or bulk accommodation purchases.

💡 Applying yield rules is an excellent idea during:

  • High seasons with busy periods, when you want to maximise return but have limited time to manage your rates.

  • Low seasons with unexpected demand, when you don’t want to miss out on maximising rates.

Types of yield rules

There are four types of rules:

  1. Automatic closure - stop selling your room types when availability reaches a certain number.

  2. Selling limit - stop selling a particular rate plan when it has been sold a set number of times.

  3. Availability limit - Amount - restrict the amount of available room types distributed on select bookings channels.

  4. Availability limit - Percentage - restrict the percentage of available room types distributed on select booking channels.
