The restriction strategy sets how the rates minimum and maximum stay settings are applied. In most cases the appropriate setting is "Stay Through".
- When set to "Stay Through", this rates minimum and maximum stay restrictions must be satisfied for each day of the stay where this rate applies. The value of all booked days applies.
- When set to "First Night Only", this rates minimum and maximum stay restrictions must only be satisfied for the arrival date of the booking. Only the value of the check-in day applies to the booking.
Example: Weekdays have a 2 night minimum stay, Friday and Saturday have a minimum stay of 3 nights. A guest wants to arrive on Thursday and stay 2 nights. Stay Through: booking not possible because for Friday a 3 night minimum stay applies. First Night: Booking possible because on Thursday a minimum stray of 2 nights applies and the rule for Friday will be ignored.
- "Gap Fill" will only allow this rate if there is an available gap of unsold nights less than or equal to the rate Maximum Stay setting.
