Add the Rule Set

Steps to define the Rule: 

After saving a new cancellation policy, you will be directed to the following screen to enter your Rule Set.


  • Select your Cancellation with Discount Strategy. This is the strategy of calculating the cancellation costs in combination with a discount applied as the discount. For example, are the cancellation costs applied to the sales price after/before applying the discount for example. Two strategies are currently supported:
    • Cancellation on full price (Calculate the cancellation costs on the full, undiscounted price. Then subtract the absolute discount from the cancellation cost.)
    • The same percentage (Only allow "flat" cancellation policies, i.e., the same percentage for all product types. Then the cancellation costs can be calculated from the discounted price.)
  • Add the Minimal Fee to each currency 
  • Add your Rule Set
    • Enable for flights, use the TTL as the start date instead of the itinerary start date for flights. 
      • It allows the calculation of dynamic cancellation policies for flights combined with ground service static cancellation conditions. Bildschirmfoto_2022-04-05_um_21.03.21.png

  • Click Save
  • To publish the policy, click on the button next to Save and select Publish
