This feature allows you to provide additional discounts for the dates when you have a lot of available rooms. It's very easy to understand by example below:

As you can see, there is 3 discounts available:
1. In case if we have at least 5 rooms available of any type, then ET will add 15% discount to the room rate on that particular date, within the period from 01.08.2016 to 31.12.2016
2. In case if we have at least 4 rooms available of any type, then ET will add 10% discount to the room rate on that particular date, within the period from 01.08.2016 to 31.12.2016
3. In case if we have at least 3 rooms available of any type, there is no discount available, so the system will look for the discount for any room amount less than 3. In our case, we have a discount for 2 rooms left, then ET will add 5% discount to the room rate on that particular date, within the period from 01.08.2016 to 31.12.2016
4. In case if we have at least 2rooms available of any type, then ET will add 5% discount to the room rate on that particular date, within the period from 01.08.2016 to 31.12.2016
2. In case if we have at least 1 rooms available of any type, there is no discounts available so for that date, this advance discounts will not be applied.

By utilizing this feature, you can increase your occupancy in a few simple steps. System will decrease the rates for the most unpopular dates and keep the rate higher, for the most demanding

IMPORTANT: Effective Tours apply discounts one-by-one. It means if you have a Last Minute discount, 10% for 3 days prior to arrival. Then ET will apply this 10% to your current rate. After it, if there is any Advance Discounts for the minimum rooms available, ET will add that discount again, to the discounted rate from the previous step.
Let me illustrate it by example:
Standard rate is 100$
1 day prior to arrival discount: 10%
We have 5 rooms available by tomorrow
Advance Room Discount for 5 rooms is: 15%

THEN
1) Applying the Last Minute discount: 100$-10%=90$
2) Applying the Advance discount: 90$-15%=76.5$
Final rate for tomorrow will be: 76.5$



And 2 days prior to arival you apply
