Booking Manager enables charter fleets and agencies to quote prices in two ways: a) With price and discount applied, but obligatory extras listed separately, which was traditionally the way yacht charter market worked in past, or b) to calculate obligatory extras immediately in quotes as a "full price" to guests.
Many companies prefer the second one because it is more transparent and clear for the charter guests receiving the offers and secondly it is also in line with many legal jurisdictions mandating that prices are listed to clients with all costs included to avoid hidden costs, such as the European Union regulation clearly stating that prices listed to end customers need to be clear without hidden costs.
This article will show you how to control this feature in Booking manager if you want to or are legally obligated.
