FLYR for Hospitality offers robust support for multiple currencies through the use of Daily Dynamic Exchange Rates. This feature ensures that your reporting is aligned with the most current exchange rates available, providing real-time accuracy and reflecting current market conditions.

Source of Exchange Rates

Our platform utilizes a reliable third party provider to source exchange rates. This provider aggregates data from reputable financial institutions and banks, including the European Central Bank. This ensures that the exchange rates used in our platform are accurate and up-to-date.

Frequency of Updates

Exchange rates are updated once a day through a cloud function. The rates are extracted and stored once a day at approximately 05:00 UTC+1. The process takes about one additional hour to reflect the new exchange rates across all relevant components of the platform.

Application of Exchange Rates

Daily Dynamic Exchange Rates are applied based on the update date, ensuring that revenue calculations reflect the most current financial data available. Here’s how it works:

  1. Initial Booking: When a reservation is made, FLYR for Hospitality applies the exchange rates from that specific day. For instance, if a reservation is made on January 1, 2024, the exchange rates from that day are used to calculate and store the revenue values in multiple currencies.

  2. Reservation Update: If any details of the reservation are modified at a later date, such as changing the channel name on January 14, 2024, this triggers an update to the revenue figures. The new revenue calculations use the exchange rates from the modification date, January 14, 2024, in this example.

This method ensures that revenue reporting is always aligned with the most current financial data available, reflecting the latest exchange rates applicable at the time of the most recent reservation update.

Benefits of Daily Dynamic Exchange Rates
