It is important for property managers to lay out their rental conditions and give an opportunity to guest to review them before booking a rental.
Defining your Rental Conditions
Rental conditions can be defined at the company level (if conditions are the same across all properties) or at the property level (if the differ). If they only differ for a minor percentage of your whole inventory, you can define the company-level one and "override" at the property level for the ones that need different conditions.
For company-level conditions, you can defined them under Agency Settings > Rental Conditions tab:
For property-level conditions, you can defined them under Property Settings > Rental Conditions tab:
- If property-level conditions are edited (even if the changes are deleted and become blank), they will prevail.
- If property-level conditions are left untouched, company-level conditions will prevail
