This article demonstrates how to set up a meal allowance in protel
Split Table Creation
In this example, we are adding two different TAAs to the package, as the hotel in the example has a restaurant as well as room service for breakfast.
Configuration was as follows -
Setup of two different breakfast TAAs set up as a meal allowance. Both have been set up to do the following;
Split $7.25 in accommodation
Allow up to $12.50 total to be spent in either outlet per day.
Anything posted less that $7.25 or over $7.25 will go to the Package Profit/Loss TAA.
Post on Departure is ticked, telling protel that this is to be calculated the next day.
TAA Setup for one of the TAAs in the package. It is set up to auto rout to folio F if part of an allowance plan.
Example Of This Working - After First EOD
A reservation with this package after the first EOD
You’ll notice that protel has split -$7.25 from accommodation and put it in folio F.
Example Of This Working - Restaurant Posts Breakfast
Restaurant Posts $8.50 to this guest’s account. It automatically routes to Folio F.
Example Of This Working - Next EOD Runs
EOD has run, and protel has posted -$1.25 as Package Profit/Loss as the guest used more than the $7.25 allotted for the package.
Protel has then split another $7.25 off in preparation for the next day’s activity.
On the day of check out, you will be asked if you want to post meal allowances. You would say ‘Yes’ if the guest has already had breakfast and it has been posted. Once you do that, the package calculation gets done.
