Your property webpage or web address is in the format http://PROPERTYNAME.ukchalets.com.
This is your personal webpage dedicated to your property, and as such popular search engines, such as Google, will index this to help visitors find their way to your property webpage easier.
This is why we generally advise against changing your property web address - thus the reason for the disabled option on the "Edit Property" page.
Changing your property web address will "break" working links to your property and visitors will no longer be able to find your property until you are reindexed by search engines.
If you still want to do this, please use the "Contact Us" section of the dedicated helpdesk.
We will then process your request.
By default, your property is available everyday for the whole year.
You can use the "Unavailability Slots" (see "How do I mark dates as unavailable?") to mark, or "block out", any dates that the property is unavailable.
Likewise you can select dates and add a price for the selected dates.
To add a price range, simply go to the "Prices & Availability" page.
Scroll down and click the "Add a Price Slot" button.
On this menu, you can choose which of your properties (if you have multiple) you want to add the price range to.
You must also choose a start and end date, and the pricing structure. There are four pricing options to choose from:
Simply enter the daily rate, and select which day(s) bookings can start. You can also enter a minimum/maximum number of days.
Simply enter the weekly rate.
This allows you to enter a block price i.e. the price for the whole date block.
Our 'Cascading Price' structure allows you to set a different daily price for each day (up to 14 days). This allows to charge less per day for longer stays.
Enter the price you want to charge for that nights stay. For example, to charge Â£100 for day 1, then Â£90 for day 2, then Â£80 for day 3, enter 100 into "Day 1" box, 90 into "Day 2" box, and 80 into "Day 3" box.
Any stays longer than the price range you set will be set as the last price - in our example above, days 4-14 will be Â£80.
To save the price range, simply click "Update". Your changes will then be saved, and your property webpage will reflect this instantly.
By default, you property is listed as available all year round.
You can use the "Unavailability Slots" to record any dates that the property is unavailable such as seasonal unavailability, and personal use.

We also use this information when showing listings on our website.
To mark a date block as unavailable, simply go to the "Prices & Availability" page.
Click the "Add Unavailability Slot", then choose the property (if you have multiple) and the start/end dates.
Click "Update" to save the slot. Your changes will then be saved, and your property webpage will reflect this instantly.
