Here are the steps to setup the Fixed block booking:

  1. You will find the Fixed block booking settings block in the admin Edit Product page next to “Price by range of days” tab.
  2. You will need to first enable the “Enable Fixed Block Booking” field which will display a Add New Booking Block button. Clicking on that you will see some fields appear.
  3. For setting up the product, you will first need to give the block a name, which will be put in the Booking Block Name field.
  4. Then you will need to add a range of the block which will define the range of the block in number of days on which the check-out date will depend on.
  5. Then you will need to put in the start day and the end day of the week which can be set as per your requirement. Enter the Start day and the End day of the week from the drop down fields provided. Make sure the end day is co-ordinated with the number of days field value.
  6. Lastly, you will need to provide the price for the block in the Price field. This price will be charged on the front end, here the default price will be overridden by the block price.
  7. Save the block and the block created will be displayed below the block fields.
