Special offers differs from sales as they last only a certain period of time after which they are deactivated automatically. In addition special offers can be connected to all rates at once and adjusted by the room type. For example, you can create a discount for deluxe rooms only and make sure that guests can see this offer only for a limited amount of time, for example a month before some holiday or event. Moreover, you can limit the number of possible sales.
