New API capabilities of IdoBooking - automate stay condition management by controlling restrictions, sales availability, and prices in your own integrations.

Here are the new features in the IdoBooking API that open up exciting opportunities for developers to fully integrate with Revenue Management systems. Now, you have complete control over stay restrictions and allotment through the API interface. What's more, the latest update allows for more flexible price management, enabling you to override price modifications without the need to delete the original exceptions. Our documentation has also been expanded to support key offer parameters such as accommodation size and detailed location information. This allows you to better tailor your integrations with external applications. These changes are already available to selected customers in the 29th version of our Documentation. If you haven't seen them yet, don't worry! They will also be available on your panel starting from September 6, 2023.

Availability management via the Allotments Gateway

We have introduced an entirely new API gateway - Allotments - which allows you to control availability in selected sales channels. Additionally, the Sources method enables you to retrieve a list of sales channels where you can set availability exceptions (as well as prices).


How to use it in your Integrations via the IdoBooking API?
Thanks to the Allotments gateway, various Revenue Management programs (RMS) gain the ability to manage the number of accommodation units available in specific OTA services. This, in turn, helps limit the number of units shared with intermediaries during peak periods, maximizing the chances of direct sales.

Length of Stay management via the Restrictions Gateway

Another gateway controlling stay conditions is the Restrictions gateway, which allows you to retrieve, set, and remove the length of stay modifications within a selected rate plan. The gateway allows you to control parameters such as open/close for arrivals and reservation length (any, specified, minimum, and multiples) directly through the API.

Price modification changes in the Prices Gateway

The new method setExceptions available in the Prices gateway allows for more efficient price overwriting. Previously, API handling required the deletion of existing price exceptions before creating new ones. With these changes, we have reduced the number of operations to utilize a single method.
