It is now possible to set how far in advance the departure date should default to. Previously we always defaulted to just one night, but that doesn’t always make sense. Especially in the case where a minimum stay is in effect and it isn’t possible to stay just one night. Or in other cases when weekly stays are required, it makes sense to have the departure date default to 7 nights.
This setting affects what the default departure date will show as, when the page is set to start with a date search automatically. That is seen here, the page will load with the arrival date starting two day in advance of “today” and the departure date will default to 7 nights after that.
And then whenever an arrival date is selected, the departure date will default to how many nights in the future the default length of stay is set to.
