During high season periods, you may want to avoid channel commissions and receive bookings only via your Booking Engine or Backoffice.
These two options will not work:
Blocking the dates on MyAllocator's calendar. The periodic synchronizations with Bookinglayer will unblock availability again.
Blocking dates on each channel's calendar. Although some channels may allow it. most will not allow adjusting availability as they are synchronized with MyAllocator. This can also be a time-consuming task if you work with several channels and increase the chance of mistakes.
To stop sending availability to channels set your rates to 0 on MyAllocator's calendar for the periods and rooms you want to block. As a safety mechanism to avoid bookings with a value of 0, MyAllocator will stop sending availability to all channels for periods and rooms that don't have a rate.
In the example below, no availability will be sent to channels for rooms "Standard suite" and "Deluxe room" from the 18th to the 20th.
