The Country Code Table, like the names suggests, provides a placeholder for you so save different countries in your system. The country may then be allocated to different bookings. This is useful for a number of reasons including:
A reservation nationality Allocating a nationality to reservations enables you to track great statistics like which countries generate most of your bed nights.
Guest nationalities Knowing your guest’s nationality can help your operations team fine tune the guest experience at the lodge, e.g. allocate a German speaking guide to German guests during their stay.
Marketing Of course there’s also the benefit of your marketing team being able to target your guest based on their nationality, e.g. send a November emailer to your European guests highlighting: “Your winter holiday can be a tropical oasis!”.
A contact’s address details Defining an agent’s country address will help you to report on and group bed nights by country, making planning things like your marketing team’s agent visits a total breeze!
In order to set up, edit or delete Country Code Tables, navigate to Admin > Setup > Code tables > Other > Country.

Editing a Country
Editing the Country code table is possible. The change will automatically update wherever the code table has been used in the system.
Deleting a Country
If the Country has already used in a system it cannot be deleted and will instead be converted to inactive. The Country will remain in the list but will be identified as inactive in the Inactive column. The Country will still apply as usual to existing rates and bookings but won’t be available for any future bookings.
