Calculate occupancy supplements and discounts

Once we have the base price and the board supplement or discount applied, then we have to process the occupancy supplements and discounts informed at CNSU structure. 

There are three different types:

1.   Child supplement or discount

Determine the final type of pax for the service

2.   Additional bed

Applied only for the passenger exceeding the standard capacity

3.   Room for single use

Applied only for passengers not exceeding the standard capacity

 

General restrictions:

  • The [CNSU.Is per pax] value is always true
  • One passenger can only have one record to apply
  • The [CNSU.Order] is not relevant due to are the first in the application order
  • The [CNSU.Is cumulative] is not relevant, will be always false

The price calculated after this process will be the base price on which apply the rest of the supplements and discounts. 

(*) For calculating the final price using the new pricing structure, match the fields: Net price, Price and Amount on CNCT and CNSU structure 


Child supplement or discount

A child supplement or discount is defined when the [CNSU.Type] value is N

At this stage we will obtain the passenger type: adult, child or infant, depending on the contract information. 

A passenger is considered an infant when his age is younger than [CCON.Minimum child age]. 

Also when you cannot apply a child supplement or discount but only because of the age rules does not applies due to the passenger age is younger than the minimum age in the child supplement or discount record and there is no more record for this passenger age.

An infant will not be considered in the valuation process and the price is 0. 

A passenger is considered a child pax when a child supplement or discount applies. It is very common child discounts of 100% from 0 to 2 years old. Then, a 1 years old pax will be considered a child pax with price 0, but not an infant. 

A passenger is considered an adult pax when is not an infant or child. 

You have to process record by record and check if it applies for all the days and passenger. As the child supplement or discount is the first you have to apply the order is not relevant. 

The validation record check is:

  • Dates
  • Rate
  • Room type
  • Room characteristic
  • Board
  • Passenger’s age
  • Operation days 

If more than one record is valid, then the filtering order is:

  1. Rate
  2. Room type
  3. Room characteristic
  4. Board 

The child supplement and discount has two more fields that we have to validate:

  • Order [CNSU.Pax order]: The child order. It could appear different supplements or discounts for the first child and the second one in the same booking.
  • Adults [CNSU.Adults]: The minimum adults that may have in the booking in order to apply the record. 

(*) For calculating the final price using the new pricing structure, match the fields: Net price, Price and Amount on CNCT and CNSU structure. 

Example:

  • [CCON.Minimum child age] value is 0

All the infant supplements or discounts will have the [CNSU.Minimum age] and [CNSU.Maximum age] informed. Furthermore, the [CNSU.Maximum age] will be equal or lower than [CCON.Minimum child age

The validation record check is:

If more than one record is valid, then the filtering order is:

The infant supplement and discount has two more fields that we have to validate:

  • Order [CNSU.Pax order]: The infant order. It could appear different supplements or discounts for the first child and the second one in the same booking.
  • Adults [CNSU.Adults]: The minimum adults that may have in the booking in order to apply the record. 

Additional bed

An additional bed supplement or discount is defined when the [CNSU.Type] value is C

These records must be processed just afterwards the child supplement and discounts. 

The additional bed only applies for the adult passengers which exceed the standard capacity of the room. And also you have to check:

  • Dates
  • Rate
  • Room type
  • Room characteristic
  • Board
  • Passenger’s age
  • Operation days 

If more than one record is valid, then the filtering order is:

Additional bed supplement/discount valuation example 

 

Once you have the record to apply, the price calculation is detailed in the next section. 

Room for single use

A room for single use supplement or discount is defined when the [CNSU.Type] value is I

The application order is just after the additional bed. Note that the additional bed and single use supplement and discount can only apply one of them to the same passenger. The reason is because the room for a single use applies only to adults not covering the standard capacity. 

And also you have to check:

  • Dates
  • Rate
  • Room type
  • Room characteristic
  • Board
  • Passenger’s age
  • Operation days 

If more than one record is valid, then the filtering order is:

The final price would be the price for just one pax plus the supplement.

The application types U and T are the same than N, but only for the first night. The application types A and M are only possible with amounts, not percentages.

(*) If the board price is per room and there is a M discount, it is necessary to divide the board to the standard capacity in order to get the price for 1 pax and add the absolute amount for this supplement.
