Frees

A free is defined as special discount offer. A generic free offers some free nights if the length of stay is greater than a defined value. 

The length of stay must be between minimum and maximum days [CNGR.Minimum days] and [CNGR.Maximum days]. The free nights will be the number of night’s value at [CNGR.Frees]. 

The record validation consists:

  • Application date
  • Length of stay
  • Rate
  • Room type
  • Room characteristic
  • Board
  • Operation dates 

The operation dates validation in the Free consists in:

  1. Check if some day has the Y value
  • If all the days has N value, then every day of the week can be applied
  • If there are values with Y and N, then only the Y value days can be applied 

Before apply the free you have to check the combinable offers.
