Create Extra Items & Package Deals
Bill Extra Services Easily
From breakfast to laundry service, or sauna use to bicycle rentals: As an accommodation provider, you offer a wide range of additional services that your guests can make use of.
In Lodgit Desk you create all offered additional services in the extra item management. If you wish, you can also combine different items into one package, for example, a Valentine's Day package with a rose bouquet, a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through the city and a candlelight dinner.
Once created, extra items and packages are quickly and easily assigned to the respective booking - and can be invoiced just as quickly and easily. The extra items management can also be used in other ways e.g:
- Charging of visitor's tax or tourist tax, which you collect for your city council
- Creation of and redeeming of vouchers
- Discounts or additional expenses
- Plus much more!
Packages for Special Offers and Upselling
All extra items can be combined into packages in any combination. For example you could offer the above-mentioned Valentine's Day package, or a summer package with bicycle rental, ticket for the outdoor swimming pool and breakfast, or a hiking package with a packed lunch and a hiking map of the area, or... There are no limits to your imagination!
For each package you can decide whether it's an inclusive package, an all-inclusive package, or a normal package. The individual extra items can also have a different price within a package than if they were booked individually. So upselling is made easy: breakfast for 6 €, dinner for 15 € - together as a package half-board for 18 € etc.
You can also further tempt customers with popular offers, for instance offering free stays upon a certain number of nights rental “Stay 4 nights – pay only 3”. This is all possible using package deals.
Tip: Packages can also be offered via the Lodgit online booking system - optionally or automatically!
Generate Reports & Forecasts
The accounting of the extra items can of course also be evaluated in detail by Lodgit Desk and displayed with graphical charts.
This way you can see which of your extras is the "big seller" and also which is the "slow seller". You also have a list of fees (e.g. visitor's tax) that you have received as transitory items for the relevant local authorities.
These lists can also be taken for forecasts: let your kitchen staff know how many guests have booked for breakfast tomorrow, or for which guests the fridge in the holiday flat must be filled.
