When a new deal is created, we always copy over the meal plan from your main ‘parent’ rate (i.e. your standard rate). If you don’t offer rates without meal plans, the best thing to do is create a non-meal plan rate. You can easily set this up by yourself:
1. Open the Rates & Availability tab and click on Rate categories.
2. You can either click ‘Edit’ to adjust the existing rates, or click ‘Add new Rate category’ to create a new rate.
3. To create a non-meal plan rate, leave all the options in the 'Which meal plan' section unticked. Click ‘Review rate category’ and then ‘Save rate category’ in the next step.
Once you have created a non-meal plan rate category, you can go to the ‘Promotions’ tab and create a new promotion deal. Simply select your non-meal plan rate in the ‘Which rates’ section when prompted.
