Tourism & Travel / Role of the accountant/re
French term or phrase: délogements
A bullet point list of this role includes the line:

"Rapports notes libres, délogements, vente B to B par distributeur, vente par type de tarif"

What would 'délogements' be?

TIA for any help!

P.S. Separate question asks what 'notes libres' are.

1. Room changes (if within the same establishment); 2. "walking"/if to another

"Délogement" could have two different meanings:
1. a room change during a guest stay (for any number of reasons-toilet out of service, an unexpected stayover, a guest complaint on noise, etc.); or
2. "walking" a guest to another lodging due to an overbooking which could be the result of a property's revenue management strategy or simple human error

Example sentence(s):
  • Hotel industry term for the practice of lodging an arriving guest at another hotel (typically 1 night), because the reserved accommodation cannot be made available to him due to overbooking. Usually the erring hotel pays the expenses of the "walked" guest
  • Méthodologie de délogement interne: il s’agit du changement d’établissement à l’arrivée du client ou durant son séjour, suite à de l’overbooking ou une erreur de chambre réservée ou un incident technique.
