How to set up Fractional Bookings

Settings > Fractional Bookings


Fractional booking is a way of automatically blocking or reserving rooms when other specified rooms are booked. This is useful for units that can be sold together as one unit or separately as individual units. For example, a suite that includes two smaller rooms could be sold as one suite or sold as two separate rooms on separate reservations. Fractional booking rules allow the suite to be blocked automatically when one of the rooms is sold, and/or allow both rooms to be blocked when the suite is sold.
