What does hotel cut off days mean?
Cut Off Days (or sometimes also called Cut Off Hours or Cut Off Date) allows inventory to be closed out, or appear unavailable to the customer, starting at a certain number of days before an arrival date.
For example, if a guest wants to book a reservation for tomorrow, and tomorrow’s cut off days is set to 2, it would not show as available to book to the guest since it was not booked at least 2 days prior to the arrival date.
If cut off days is set to 2 for a date 7 days from now, it would appear as available, as the guest is searching for availability prior to the 2 days before arrival mark. They are searching 7 days before arrival, which is outside of the cut off days of 2.
