If a companion reservation is enabled and allowed, after the 'Reserve' button is clicked (from either Resmain.aspx or the sitemap.aspx), a companion reservation checkbox is added to the reservation summary panel on the left of either the ResEntry.aspx or VirtualStore.aspx page. When the checkbox is checked, you have the opportunity to select the start date and number of days (within primary reservation dates) for the companion reservation. See the sample screenshots below.

When the 'Add' button is clicked, the reservation summary is updated to reflect the added charges and if applicable any change to the deposit amount. Uncheck the companion reservation box and the charges are removed. When 'Make Reservation' is clicked, both the primary and companion reservations are booked, with the companion reservation charges on the primary reservation folio.
