Refined Dynamic Pricing Recommendations

More pacing data in our dynamic pricing algorithm

Pacing indicates how quickly bookings are coming in for a given arrival date. Rather than using hypothetical data or estimates, pacing uses actual booking information from the upcoming months in your market to create a projected image of the future. Comparing past and future data can help you determine whether your market demand is likely to be lower or higher than during the same period last year, based on occupancy.

Pacing data allows our algorithm to adapt more quickly to changes in your market compared to the previous year. We are now considering more pacing data when pricing listings so that our recommendations reflect occupancy rate changes quickly and accurately. This ensures that prices for listings remain competitive at all times.

For instance, the pacing chart above shows that this market is getting fewer bookings than last year for most dates. So, in this case, the correct action may be to lower prices for a while to boost occupancy.

Smoothing and Rounding: Offer Attractive Prices for Your Prospective Guests

offer attractive prices to prospective guests of your vacation rental by using engaging prices and uniform rates.

We know our users have wanted the ability to quickly and easily adjust final prices generated by PriceLabs for marketing purposes. With our newly released Rounding and Smoothing functions, we’re happy to announce that we’ve made this possible.

Rounding – Showing prices that end with a specific digit (e.g., $99, $109, or $299) can appeal more to some travelers. Our Rounding feature enables you to customize the ending of these prices to your liking and create the perfect look for your pricing!

Smoothing – With our Smoothing feature, you can ensure that travelers will always see uniform pricing across multiple nights. For example, if you have an overnight stay over a weekend with PriceLabs recommending a price of $123 for Friday and $107 for Saturday night, Smoothing will enable you to show an average price of $115 for both nights. This way, you can provide travelers with a consistent and easy-to-understand pricing structure.

Find this option under the Advanced Customizations tab in the Customizations window.

Recommended Base Price revisited 

Staying ahead of the curve is essential. That’s why we suggest all PriceLabs users check their Base Prices at least every three months. This way, you can ensure your prices are up-to-date with local market trends and remain competitive.

We make it easy for you to pick the right Base Price with our Base Price Help tool. As announced a couple of months ago, we’ve recently incorporated more future trends into our pricing algorithm. As a result, please check whether our Base Price recommendation has changed for your listing.

Head to the Review Prices tab and select ‘Help me choose a base price’ to see the new recommended base price.

Hover over the price on any date in your calendar. A tooltip will appear, revealing the various factors considered when calculating the rate.

You will be able to understand how we added to your Base Price the impact of the following:

  • Market factors we detected (e.g., seasonality, pacing),
  • Price customizations you set up (e.g., last-minute),
  • and Thresholds you defined (e.g., minimum price).

On a computer, just hover a price in the calendar. You can access the tooltip on a mobile device by selecting and holding the pricing cell.
