Wishbox’s room upgrade feature allows you to offer upgrades to guests before they arrive, based on your live availability, enhancing revenue management and optimizing occupancy.

Your guests will be able to see the room upgrade deals in the online check-in to ensure maximum engagement with the offers you create. Upgrade offers will also appear on the main page of the guest app, available for guests to book at any time. 

How to Create a room upgrade offer?

You can easily create a room upgrade offer from your upsell page in the Wishbox dashboard. Go to the "Upsells" page and select "Manage". Click on the green "Add New" button in order to create a new upsell. Select "Room Upgrade" from the drop down menu.

Settings

In order to enable a room upgrades you will need to complete the following settings: 

1) Brand – If your account includes multiple brands you will need to select what brand you want to send the offer from. Only rooms that are assigned to that brand will be included in your offer. 

2)  Booking Option – There are 3 options for managing room upgrades. 

  •  Instant booking – Allowing guest to book room upgrades without approving each deal in before conformation. You will get an “order completed” email every time an order is booked. Please notice you may need to manually update the reservation in your PMS (this depends on the PMS integration).

  • Require approval – Manually approve each upgrade deal before guests get a confirmation. You may need to manually update the reservation in your PMS after you approve it, depending on the PMS integration.

  • Guest bidding (recommended) –  Allow guest to place a bid on the upgrade offer while setting a minimum and maximum price. You will need to manually approve each bid before confirmation is sent to guests and may need to manually update the reservation in your PMS after you approve it, depending on the PMS integration.
