This option allows you to copy derived rates from a source hotel to a destination hotel. Notice that the source hotel can be the same as the destination hotel.

It should be pointed out that derived rates can have the same meal plan as the base rate or they can have their own. If it copies the same meal plan as the base rate, when you copy the derived rate, it will assume the meal plan of the new base rate it has been copied to.
