Maxim Guest Value
The standard guest value applies to each property and it’s saved from the Description Area. This is the field we have for max guests allowed.
If you try to book more guests than max guest allowed, it won’t be possible.
Search by the guest dropdown reads the default max guest allowed (set in the description area). The search will return results with properties that have the default guest number equal or higher with the value selected in the search.
Extra Guests allowed
Extra guests allowed checkbox that exists in Edit property -> Price settings is optional and refers to guests over the max guests set in Description
The extra guest option once enabled, doesn’t let a max number of extra guests.
Charge for Extra Guest
This would be the setup from Add Property -> Price settings -> Set price per night to add price for extra guest
Price per night value will apply by night and will be for the number of guests you put in the Descripton step.
Price for extra guest (what is OVER the guest number set in Description) applies from this setting
In custom price, you can set a custom price per night (to apply for the default number of guests) and a custom price for extra guest for your chosen days
How to add a field in search that considers all guests (default guest number and extra guests)
For search, you can use a custom field you create and set in search.
We have support to add dropdown fields so you could add such a field for total guests (guests + extra allowed) and replace the theme field for guests.
