Learn how to create a rate card for your venue

Do you have a complicated rate card that needs simplifying?

Rate cards for community venues can be tricky. Often they have evolved over time and it can be a bit complicated for customers to understand what they need to pay. You may also have 'legacy' rates, where regular hirers are all on different rates from what was negotiated at the time. 

Moving to an online booking system requires making sure your rate card is simple and consistent. This will pay dividends for helping your customers self serve too! Take this short course to learn how we recommend you create a rate card for casual and regular and other services.
