Rate categories are a powerful feature used to group multiple rates together.  This feature is useful for specifying different rates to local vs international guests, or for specifying different rate categories for your different channels and for your website. 

Unless you specify otherwise, a "default" rate category will apply to all inquiries when they are first created.

Create New Rate Category

  • Navigate to Rentals >  Rental Settings
  • Select Rental 
  • Click on "Rates & Payments" on left-side navigation
  • Click the green "Add Rates" button to add a new rate and rate category, or click into an existing rate to edit its category

As an example, you may want to create different rate categories per channel and for your website.  

To create a new rate category, simply type in the category field.

Note: each rate category can have its own set of rates that are independent of the other rate categories. Rates within a single category are not allowed to have overlapping dates.  When updating a channel you push a single rate category. All rates in that category will be pushed to the channel.

Inside a customer Inquiry, you can also assign a specific rate category by clicking on the "Booking Charges" link at Inquiries > Booking Details.

Add Rate Mappings

Rate mappings allow you to specify which Tokeet rate categories should be pushed to specific channel rate categories. This feature allows you to update all linked channels with one click, and is required for automatic Dynamic Rate updates.

  • Navigate to Rentals > Rental Settings
  • Click into a specific Rental and scroll down to “Rates & Payments” in the left side navigation.
  • Scroll down to "Rate Mappings" section towards the middle of the page
  • Click "Add Mapping"

Complete required info:

  • Select existing Tokeet rate category
  • Select a channel (your connected channels for this rental will appear)
  • Select a channel rate category

As an example, you may want to link your Booking rate category in Tokeet with the Standard channel rate category in Booking.com.

  • click "Save Mapping" to return to the Rates & Payments screen
  • Auto Sync toggle applies to Dynamic Rates only.  When enabled, Tokeet will automatically update your channel rates as your availability changes. 
  • Push All Rates allows you to push all your rates at once to your mapped channels.

Once you have created your rate maps, you may then update all connected channels simply by clicking the Push All Rates button on the right.
