Interstitial widget should say "From $xx per night"

  • A major point of confusion for guests trying to book using the interstitial website is the search results page shows a price per night. But it shows the base price, not the actual nightly rate. A quick fix would be to add a "From" in front of the nightly rate. But really, why not show the actual nightly rate that they end up seeing on the booking page?

  • Same on the website and if you are charging VAT they get a nasty shock as price then jumps 20%


    Thanks for the input everybody. I definitely agree. The end result should say From X where X = the lowest nightly rate within the time period selected by the guest.

    As for Alistair's suggestion about the inclusion of VAT/Fees in the total, I will propose that this be a configurable option on websites/widgets. (Meaning either have it include the rental taxes/fees or exclude depending on the choice made in configuration.)

    We have a few tickets open relating to RateGenie communicating rates properly to websites and widgets. Once these are closed, we'll be more able to move forward on these improvements.

    For the simple short term fix suggested by Ryland, I've created a ticket to have this changed.
