New CTA & CTD Feature Released


We have released a performance control mechanism used by revenue managers to prevent new bookings with a specific check-in or check-out date.

This new functionality is standard business practice. It is used as a complement to the minimum and maximum stay restrictions and serves to control the flow of arrivals and departures during peak periods. That means that you can select a particular period of time, so the client can only book for the dates that you have restricted.


For example:

If an owner decides to make a particular day “closed on arrival” or “closed on departure”, it means that guests are restricted from arriving or departing on that particular day.



Benefits for Vacation Rentals

This type of restrictions can partially limit the bookings of your clients, but at the same time allows you to improve the management of bookings and the flow of guests arriving at the property.

  •   Enhanced predictability
  • ◆   Improved work efficiency
  • ◆   Cost effectiveness
