For each room type in the channel, at least one rate must always be mapped, usually the “standard rate”.
If you choose not to map the other rates, be aware of this:
- When availability is updated for a certain mapped room type & rate combination, it will update the availability for all rates.
- If you close out a room type in Sirvoy, the unmapped rates will still be bookable – unless they are configured by the channel to inherit restrictions from the mapped rate. You can test this by closing out a certain date range, and see if some rates still are bookable through the channel on those dates.
- Whenever an unmapped rate is booked, the system will pick another mapped rate within the same channel room type and add the booking to the corresponding Sirvoy room type. For example: If the “Non refundable” rate is booked but only the “Standard rate” has been mapped, the booking will be added to the room type in Sirvoy that is mapped to the “Standard rate”.
- The price for any unmapped rate will be set according to what you have set on the channel and any rate-relation set up there.
