Booking.com has a unique methodology around occupancy-based pricing, which is configured via the additional guest fee in Tokeet.  It is important to understand the concepts in order to troubleshoot rate discrepancies between Tokeet and Booking.com.

Key Concepts

Booking.com will use your Tokeet additional guest fee to compute maximum occupancy pricing.

Maximum occupancy pricing:  Nightly Rate + Additional Guest Fee * Additional Guests

Here's a sample Standard Rate in Tokeet.  Nightly rate is $100, and additional guest fee is $20 per person over 2 people, up to 5 guests.  

Maximum occupancy pricing:  $100 + $20*3 = $160.

Tokeet will send $160 to Booking.com, and they will discount it for lower levels of occupancy.  (x4, x3, x2)

Troubleshooting Rate Discrepancies

There are several common scenarios that can result in a discrepancy between Tokeet and Booking.com.  

  • Begin by looking at your Tokeet rate and calculating your maximum occupancy pricing.   (Nightly Rate + Additional Guest Fee * Additional Guests)
  • Compare with rates on your Booking.com Rates & Availability Calendar

Scenario 1:  Maximum Occupancy Pricing is correct for maximum guests, but incorrect at lower levels of occupancy

  • Solution: Ask Booking.com to fix the per-guest fee. This scenario means that the additional guest fee is mis-configured in Booking.com.   You will want to email Booking.com via your Extranet inbox and request that your occupancy-based pricing matches your settings in Tokeet.
  • In Extranet Inbox, select "New Message" and "Rates & Availability" as the topic.
  • Here's a sample email you may want to send Booking.com to request occupancy-based pricing changes:

Scenario 2:  Maximum Occupancy Pricing shows up at the lowest level of occupancy in Booking.com

  • Solution: Remove the Additional Guest Fee in Tokeet. This scenario means that Booking.com already has the additional guest calculation configured on their end.
  • Remove the Additional Guest Fee in Tokeet, then push rates to Booking.com.  

Scenario 3:  Booking.com shows different number of maximum guests or minimum guests.  

  • Solution 1: Adjust maximum guests and minimum guests (guest count) in Tokeet to match Booking.com, then push rates from Tokeet to Booking.com.
  • Solution 2: Ask Booking.com to adjust the number of maximum and minimum guests to match Tokeet.  This is a manual configuration on the Booking.com end. 
  • You will want to email Booking.com via your Extranet inbox and request that your occupancy-based pricing matches your settings in Tokeet.
  • In Extranet Inbox, select "New Message" and "Rates & Availability" as the topic.
  • Here's a sample email you may want to send Booking.com to request occupancy-based pricing changes:
