With Tashi, you can offer multiple prices, packages, and availability options for an Experience with our Rates feature.

💰Rates: Examples

You can use Rates to offer clients different prices depending on the various options you set up. For example:

  1. Offer an Experience that has a Basic versus Premium package, where you're providing a higher level of service for the Premium package. Thus you can price the Premium package as more expensive than the Basic package;

  2. Offer 'Early Bird' pricing for the first 10 clients to book an Experience where you restrict the number of clients that can book at the discounted rate to X only;

  3. Offer different prices for an Experience where one price includes transport (e.g. Airfare) and the other price does not include transport;

  4. Record a Tour's published (Rack rate) price, as well as your Agent or other channel prices in Tashi so that when you record a Booking you're allocated the correct Rate for reporting and payment collection; and

  5. Offer your clients different prices depending on the cancellation policy that they choose. For example, you could offer a cheaper price when clients choose a 'Strict' cancellation policy rate versus a higher one when they choose the 'Flexible' cancellation policy. price to a customer.
