Local Booking Manager gives you the possibility to offer Short term charters or One-way charter and show such offers as Special offers on the Booking Manager Portal.
This is a perfect way to fill any gaps in your booking sheet, if an agent places a booking less than standard, 7 days, the system will automatically offer this boat until the end of the charter period.
After you create the alternative base, the system will automatically create a One-way offer by recognizing where the boat is and "bringing it back to the main base".
