Customizations in Beyond Pricing
See article What can I do in the Customizations Tab? for a broad overview.
Setting Minimum Stays
If you would like to have Annual or Seasonal Minimum Stay settings active for your HomeAway/VRBO listing, you must set this directly in Beyond Pricing. If you do not want to have Annual or Seasonal Minimum Stays, no need to adjust this setting in Beyond Pricing.
You can set this in the Customize Tab for each of your listings:
- Annual Minimum Stay: Applies to all reservations on your Calendar
- Seasonal Minimum Stay: Applies to reservations for a certain date range. This will overwrite what is specified as the Annual Minimum Stay.
Be sure to save your changes!
For example, I want to set an Annual Minimum Stay of two nights year-round. However, during Thanksgiving I'd like to increase that to a three night Minimum Stay. Let's set that up in the our Customize Tab for this year:
