Advanced Pricing gives operators flexibility with how they implement individual price categories.
Setting a minimum quantity will require a certain amount of participants in order to book the price
This field is useful when you want to force customers to purchase a specific price if they hit a certain threshold of participants. Imagine you have an individual and group rate. You would want to limit the individual quantity to not allow people to buy once they qualify for the group rate.
Using deposit-only pricing allows operators to gain commitment from their customers without requiring them to pay the full amount at the time of purchase. The system will automatically calculate the outstanding balance so that both the customer as well as operator are clearly aware of what is still owed.
Hidden Prices allow for an operation to easily manage all of their different price points, even if some of those prices are only used internally. Hiding a price means that it is not visible to the end-customer on the website. Common use cases for this are early bird pricing, special pricing only visible to operators/agents/affiliates booking on behalf of customers, etc.
Prevent overselling using the most sophisticated asset manager available. Activities frequently have capacities which are associated with resources that are shared between tours. TRYTN’s asset tools intelligently account for these scenarios to provide real-time and reliable availability across experiences. Our fleet management features are the best way for tour companies to easily provide the most up-to-date availability for all their products.
Tour operations are often in situations where pricing and capacities need to adapt to sudden developments. TRYTN’s override features provide operators with the ability to quickly create custom pricing and availability as needed.
