Hi everyone! If you use Reservation Key there is a new feature. I had a suggestion for John and he made it happen once again! Man this guy is great! What a blessing to finally have someone that makes things happen. I found that when ever we had slower times, I would lower the rate to try and get people to book. I noticed that the customer never new that I had lowered the rate. For example. Our normal rates during the week are $139.00 per night. Several times I would do a rate adjustment for a certain time because it was slow. By doing this I was able to lower the rate to $115.00 per night to try and get people to book. I was getting tired of the customers calling during this time to ask if we had any specials. I would tell them, " The normal rate is $139.00 per night and we have a special at $115.00 per night!" They would then tell me "Oh great, that is a good deal! I would like to go ahead and make a reservation please!" So I called John and gave him my idea. This is what we came up with and it is working great! I really suggest you give it a try! Here is an example from our site of what I'm talking about. It gives the normal rate and then the discount rate. People love Discounts. If we are going to offer one, it's nice for the customer to know they are getting one!
