RoomPriceGenie is designed to be as transparent as possible. For this reason, we provide you with a detailed description of how we have calculated prices on any given day. Click on any date cell in the pricing calendar and a window will pop-up with a breakdown of our price suggestion.



Base Price


The base price is the starting point for our price calculation. You can think of it as the average price for your reference room for the whole year. Read more about it here.




Price Breakdown - Base Price serves as the starting point of all calculations



Market Factor


The market factor reflects the market intelligence, which you can read more about here. The events list in the bottom right corner gives you an indication why the market behaves like it does.


Example:

Some big shiny star announces a concert in your city. Hotels with revenue managers will pick up on this immediately to prepare for the higher demand. RoomPriceGenie detects this change in the market price level and reacts to it. This will then be reflected in the market factor.




The market factor influences the base price according to certain events taking place in the area



Occupancy Factor


The occupancy factor reflects the classical yielding or price optimisation. It is calculated based on how many rooms you have left and how much time you have to sell them. In the upper right section of the price pop-up you’ll see a list of how many rooms you have left of the corresponding room type, total rooms (of all types) left and  your total occupancy.


Example:

If you are selling rooms really quickly for a date in 6 months, the system will quickly increase prices to make use of the opportunity. On the other hand, if rooms stay empty, the prices go down to attract more bookings.





The occupancy factor influences the base price according to your performance



Adjustments


If you click on ‘Adjustments’, another pop-up window will open with a detailed breakdown of your individual, weekday and monthly and lead time adjustments. Your minimum and maximum prices as well as existing yielding tags are also displayed there. All these constraints are included in the shown adjustment factor.




This pop-up gives you an overview of your individual adjustments made
