Guests In House Rate Check (giratecheck with INH5.FMX)
Note: When printing this Report help topic, we recommend printing with Landscape page orientation.
The Guests In House Rate Check Report displays a comparison of the Rate Amount being charged for a Reservation to the configured Rate Code Amount and then determines the Variance. The report output will display an alternating gray background for every other reservation in order to make the details of each reservation stand out.
The Rate Code Amt. is what is configured for the rate code, and the value is calculated based on the following:
Opera checks the reservation to see if there is a block code. If so, the rate code on the reservation is compared to the rate code on the block. If the rate code on the reservation matches the rate code on the block, then the rate amount displayed for the Rate Code Amount is the rate amount defined in Block Grid for that Day/room type/persons. Opera is looking at the block details, not the rate code of the block. If the rate code on the reservation does not match the rate code on the block, then the Rate Code Amount will display the rate amount used from the Rate Code Detail of the rate code used on the reservation for that day/room type/ persons/length of stay.
For example, the guest Daniel Watkins is with the block PLH06 and the block's rate code is 4YYYVO which matches the rate code on the individual's reservation. Therefore, the rate amount displayed for the Rate Code Amount in the giratecheck report is the amount defined in the Block details, or $2058.00, which is the block's 2 Adult and 4 children rate corresponding with the arrival date of March 28, 2006 for 7 nights for room type BV2.
The Rate Amt. is the rate amount the guest is being charged (the rate on the reservation).
The Curr. is the currency code.

With a Variance Only. When this check box is selected, the report will display reservations that have a difference in the actual room type and the RTC on the reservation, as well reservations with a rate amount difference between the published rate for the room type and the rate charged (e.g., when a fixed rate applies). When this check box is selected, the report excludes reservations that do not have a variance. Otherwise, if the check box is not selected, all reservations are shown. Please keep in mind that this is not strictly a variance report, but a rate check report.
Each checkbox will add a column or row to the report output with the information selected. This allows the report to be very complex or simple, depending on what is selected. Default will be with none of the check boxes selected.
