Establishing and Managing a Hourly or Per Passenger Rate Matrix

The Hourly or Per Passenger Rate Matrix is a quick and easy way to establish a specific Rate table for an Account, and to apply that schedule repeatedly with multiple Accounts; or for application in the Online Reservation System/version 3(ORES V3).
