Categories is a way to group different types of accommodation units together.

This is a way to give different types of accommodation units unique definition under one account. For example, cottages, apartments, camping or touring, glamping and/or bunkhouses. The naming convention of your categories is completely up to you.

It's worth noting too, that if you do only have one category, this will not display for the online guest to choose at the start; they will simply go straight into the flow of the booking process.

To edit the name of the category, just double click on the blue-grey bar.
