How to Set a Default Room Charge

Setting a Default Room Charge Transaction Code tells the PMS what Room Charge Transaction Code should be used by default on Walk-in and New Reservations.

  • To set a default Room Charge Transaction Code, go to System Configuration > Transaction Codes
  • From the Room Charge code group, click on the Room Charge Transaction Code that you wish to use as your default
  • Click Set to Default.

The Room Charge Transaction Code that you selected will now appear in bold.

NOTE: A default Room Charge Transaction Code should ALWAYS be selected in PMS1. If no default Room Charge Transaction Code is selected then you may received the following error message when checking in a guest: "Transaction Code Invalid".

This error will not affect the function of the PMS in anyway, it is simply a indication that no Default Room Charge Transaction Code has been selected.
