In the previous article you've learnt how to create a room and specify basic settings of a room. If you have any other services that you'd like to offer to your customers that book rooms, here you will find out how to do it.

What type of extra services can I add using Trustedbookings platform?

We have created 4 categories of extra services that you can add to your offer:

1) Extras - eg board rental, bike rental

2) Meal Plans - you can specify what meals can be purchased in your location

3) Packages - eg sightseeing tours

4) Transfers - eg airport transfers

How do you add extra services?

1) Extras 

Step 1 Go to Menu bar, click Manage and choose Extras

Step 2 You will see four categories of setting that you can specify. Let's take a look at them individually.

1) Details


  • Name field - eg surf board rental
  • Rate - you can choose if a rate is calculated per day or per hour
  • Attached by default - you can decide if a rooms goes with extra regardless of a customer's choice
  • Experience - mark it if your extra is for instance a yoga class or any other immaterial thing
  • Description - a compelling description of extras is essential to convince a customer to buy it

2) Restrictions

  • Min and Max guests field are where you decide what's the minimal number of people willing to buy extra so that the extra can be sold. Eg if you offer yoga classes in your location, but a yoga class will only take place if there are at least 4 people interested. If a max space for a yoga class is 10 people, then if there are already 10 guest who booked a yoga class, new guests won't be able to join.

  • Min and Max units - a unit is either a day or an hour, eg a bike can be rented for min 1 hour and maximum 2 hours, if you want to rent a bike for 4 hours, it means that you need to book 2 units of an extr

3) Associations & Pricing


  • Associations - you choose with which rooms an extra can be offered
  • Base price - that's a price a customer will pay for extra, if no further discounts are applied
  • Overrides base price - that's the discount you can give if an extra is booked for more people, eg if you say that a price for an extra is 20 eur, but if it's booked for 3 people, it goes down to 15 EUR, so you choose "at least 3" and then write 15
