We will work with you and your team to ensure that the seamless traveler experience on the front-end matches the user experience on the back-end. Getting started is easy: start by reaching out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and by downloading the API specs that will help your business meet its goals.
Reservation Export (ResX) API
Export reservation information to your central reservation management system
The Reservation Export API effectively manages all your reservations, providing a two-way calendar sync that makes it easier to enable Instant Booking.When a booking request is accepted, either manually or via Instant Booking, that reservation is pushed into the the central reservation management system and the dates are blocked off, avoiding the possibility of double bookings while minimizing the manual data input previously required.
This API works in two-steps:
1. The API first gets a list of all booking references and and time stamps of the last change.
2. Then the API will iterate over the list to retrieve individual details of the booking, such as stay dates, guest information, property reference, and payment information. The API will always pull the most recently updated information.

Real Time Rates & Availability API
Improve booking conversion with real time get requests for rates and availability
The real time rates and availability API allows for partners to provide real-time rates on our points of sale and in our owner platform (NOC), allowing for more dynamic rates/fees, accurate availability, and enabling Instant Booking.Partners will have near complete control over price calculation. The API call and price calculation happens when the traveler is on the property description page (PDP) and booking page.This API is available for only those accounts with online bookable and inquiry only properties.
