Although the restriction of having to reserve a certain number of days before the stay date (the number of days may vary, usually up to 45/30/15, etc., and is established according to the principal segment of the hotel’s clientele and habitual reservation practices) a discount is offered on the Best Flexible Rate. In this way rooms are not made available/reservable during the last X days  of the established cut off. This kind of tariff means a base of booked rooms may be built up in advance. In the hotel trade this restriction also usually means that the tariff may not be cancelled or reimbursed. The discount offered varies according to the type of accommodation and clientele and ranges from -25% to -10% of the Best Flexible Rate.
