Price Category Types

Every Item* has price categories allocated and the name “price category” can be different for each individual Item record type*. For example, the price category type for accommodation Items is usually “room type”, whilst for flight Items it could be “ticket type”. Kaptio Travel shows default price category types which can be edited. You can read about creating the price categories for individual Items under Item Price Categories where you can learn how to, for example, create a variety of room types for a specific hotel.
