For guests that are traveling with children, it is nice to give them a discounted price for some stay products, such as breakfast or excursions. Implementation of pricing for children can help to alleviate some of these costs for your customers and make pricing more attractive for families.
Hey Mewsers, Good News! We started researching and collating information about this feature request and Age-based pricing is now on our roadmap as one of our priorities for 2021.
There will be several iterations of releases throughout this year as it is a complex subject that we are tackling. Including pricing, stay products, city taxes, and many more. We will continue to update you through this feature request but remember to check out our product webinars every month (the next one being tomorrow – https://www.mews.com/en/resources/webinars/product-webinar-march-2021) and also keep an eye on our release notes (https://www.mews.li/app/release-notes).
Thanks for your contribution to this request and we will continue to keep you posted.

I totally agree with the previous reviews. This is a critical issue that prevents good optimization. This must be your next priority development !!

Is there any update about this? We are waiting for this release since day 1.
I think this is a critical issue! In a city like Helsinki, travel is usually business related but Covid-19 has changed everything. Now we get a lot of family tourism. BUT we cannot offer competitive rates as as we can't have the age based pricing.... It's possible even in all the OTA's to set the prices exactly by age, why not in Mews. Please fix this quickly! Thank you.

Most hotels in the world welcome has a rate for children for breakfast or others.
This is not applicable to Mews.
How it's possible that this features is still not available!
For us, as potencial MEWS users, it is a quite important feature because we manage family hotels and it is core on our pricing strategy to be able to provide discounts and advantages for first/second childs in our pricing.

In such a product like ours (Apartments) that has Families as a target audience it is a MUST that we have price based on age! I see this is here since 2018, hoping this is arranged ASAP. Thank you!
Since in the Canton of Ticino all guests are given a ticket for free use of public transport at check-in. To issue the ticket before arrival we need the date of birth of every arriving guests (children's included).

First of all it is strategic choice for our chain of hotels to work with different prices between Adults and Children (with age pricing attached to it.)
It really can't be missed in a proper pms. Though it is very important for our Dutch Hotels having prices which are attractive for families, booking apartments, familiyrooms, etc. with lower prices than adults, it is also important for other departments in the hotel, such as Front Office, F& B, Housekeeping.
Guestlist, breakfast list, emergency services, such as fire deparment, police, etc and child oriented activities.
For our F&B outlets we really must know what we can expect in advance knowin the number of children for breakfast, lunch, diner etc.
Very useful especially at resorts
Herman Winter commented
I would love to see this, also breakfast based on children and baby's
Alisa Umhauer commented
we also have holiday apartments in our hotel which we manage in mews. These would be much more attractive with children prices, because the holiday apartments are often booked by families.

Ed anche importante di poter fare i prezzi per persona :-)

Ed importantissimo di poter aggiungere anche i prezzi per i bambini :-)

A requirement for many properties in terms of city tax differentiation for children vs adults, competitive pricing and customer retention in general. It is a mantory feature which should be accounted for. Please help!
Claudia van den Berg commented
yes would be very helpful for extra bed, city tax, breakfast
Alex Churton commented
As we are based in Switzerland where the city tax is different for adults and children therefore it would be great to be able to identify guests as adults or children so we can calculate the city tax correctly. Also, for general guest communication and bookings it would be great to know how many adults and how many children.

I agree 100% with this age-pricing suggestion.
I think there are only a few hotels that dont receive children... so that must be a must for us, especially we are a group hostel, where mostly children reside
Kati Nivala commented
Also Halfboard should be based on adults and child prices. 7 nights package for a family with children. What do i do? Mews adds Halfboard for adult and children to everyone in the room, so cannot use the normal Halfboard item on this. But I have to add separately for each 7 nights the item for adults and children. Please help us to like Mews!
