Pricing rules

The pricing rules feature was developed to allow flexible prices depending on different factors. You can set up flexible pricing for different date ranges, days of the week, time intervals, special prices for early booking, prices based on a number of booked time slots (for multiple booking), and based on a number of seats. In addition, prices can be calculated based on custom field values, allowing you to add paid options.
