The promotional code interface allows you to setup a discount to offer your guests when they enter a valid code into the booking form.
Once a guest enters in a valid promotional code, the discount will be applied and the particular rate plans highlighted. The discount will then flow through to the booking page and e-mail correspondence sent to you and your guest.
A promotional code can be valid for all rates and specials or just the ones you choose.
There are many ways you can use Promotional Codes to increase sales from your website.
•Create an e-mail campaign and motivate guests to book by providing them with a code to receive a discount
•Create a code so that your corporate clients receive their special discount
•Create a "Past Guest" promotional code and provide to each guest as they check out
•Provide to a travel agent so that they take their commission and only pay you the net amount at the time of booking.
•Add special links to your website that automatically add the promotional code to the booking form when clicked.
Tip: If you want a promotional code to be valid for a specific period, create a special first and then attach the code to that special.
