It is easy to set up and manage your taxes and fees using Odysys. The Odysys system allows you to apply two types of taxes to your reservations: Lodging Tax and Sales Tax. You can also add additional fees for things like Pets, Extras Guests, and more.
Lodging Taxes are automatically applied to a reservation when a guest books a room. Sales Taxes only apply to Extras or other hard goods that you have specifically designated you want a Sales Tax applied too.
