Minor Update Notification - Custom RateRules

Please be advised we are releasing an update regarding Hotel-X Buyers API as per below:

Minor changes

  • Added new RateRule: Custom

Custom RateRule

This RateRule has been created in order to typify rates that do not follow a standard and contain special restrictions (restrictions not typified by TravelgateX).

Example:

A Seller wants to sell a “COVID” rate that should only be sold to workers directly involved in the fight against COVID. For them, it is just another rate (like a Honeymoon rate), so they expect the Buyer to receive it as such.

In our Hotel-X API Schema, you will find Custom RateRules as specified below:
