Setting the default availability period
You must indicate to Stays.net what your availability period is, being able to enter a maximum period of 18 months or 547 days.
To do this, access the [Settings > Reservations > Duration] menu. In the [Availability period] section, choose the period of your choice and save the changes.
As an additional help feature, Stays will use this period as a basis to check if your price register is aligned!

Configuring the policy per listing
In case you need to configure a different availability period per listing, access the listing page and click on the [Distribution > Reservation settings] tab.
Just click on the [Individual] button, enter the desired setting and save the changes.
By clicking on the [Global] button, it will be possible to see a preview of the setting that was applied on the global model of the system.
The setting will always be used in listings, even if they are part of a multi listing location. Cloned listings will follow the availability period that you set on the parent listing.
After setting your availability period, we will send this information to the channels and, as a guarantee, we will also create blocks like this on your listing calendar:
For reservations created manually on the calendar, you can create them even in periods of availability block.
