If you ever wanted to change all your tour rates and dates for a new marketing plan, to make the most of the peak season, or on account of government regulations, you know how tedious bulk changes can get. Many of our clients have asked for help with these kinds of bulk updates.
To simplify the process VacationLabs has designed the AcceleRATE app to change tour prices and availability of any active tour. The app definitely makes our product easier to use. Especially if –
AcceleRATE lets you edit, add and delete trip time slots, dates and rates in bulk with a single Google Spreadsheet. The true power of the feature shines through when you are battling with bulk tour updates like the ones we’ve mentioned.
Currently, AcceleRATE is a request only app. To activate it for your Vacation Labs account, give our team a call. Once done, you will receive a link to activate AcceleRATE and connect your Google account to it to generate a Google Spreadsheet with trip dates and rates, which you will be able to update.
On the setup page, click ‘Connect Google Account’ to proceed. Next, select or add the relevant Google account and allow Vacation Labs access to your Google Drive to complete the AcceleRATE set up.
The AcceleRATE app offers four different commands that help you make changes to active trips.
First time users need to select this option to generate a Google Spreadsheet. By default the sheet is blank.
This command resets the blank sheet with latest trip information from your Vacation Labs account. In the sheet named ‘Trips’, under the ‘To Be Fetched’ column change the word ‘No’ to ‘Yes’, against the tours you want to update.
With this command, you generate trip pricing and dates in the sheet named ‘TripPricingData’. The sheet will show the time, dates and prices of each tour you requested. In this sheet, you can make updates in the following manner-
Once the required updates are made to the sheet, select ‘Update Trip Rates’ to activate the changes to your Vacation Labs account.
It’s a nifty app that saves time, reduces confusion and limits errors while updating your tour prices and dates.
