What is holiday pricing and how does it work?

The holidays are peak booking periods — and every available spot matters to Guests when you're providing premium, in-home care. We've built a new feature to easily and automatically allow Hosts to charge just a bit more over those critical holiday periods.

What is holiday pricing?

  • An optional feature that will automatically add $5/day to any Reservation Request service for the holiday period.
    • Reservation Request services include: Boarding, sitting and daycare.
  • Holiday periods are defined by DogVacay and cannot be changed.
  • If a reservation has any days that fall within the holiday period, the entire length of the reservation request will be subject to the holiday pricing rate.

How do I add holiday pricing?

How will Guests see the holiday price?

  • Guests will see your holiday price in search results and on your profile if they send a request containing a date within the holiday period. It will automatically show them the holiday price instead of your regular rate.
  • Upon checkout, they will see the rate listed as Holiday Boarding, Holiday Sitting, or Holiday Daycare.

Coming soon:

  • Coming soon, you'll be able to set your choice of holiday price! We'll let you know once that option is live.
