Opt-in and Opt-out

Connectivity providers must provide the option for partners to enable or disable Request to Book on the provider interface at any time.

Using OTA_HotelDescriptiveContentNotif to opt out/in

The following is an example request snippet that demonstrates the opt-out functionality using the OTA_HotelDescriptiveContentNotif endpoint.

<OTA_HotelDescriptiveContentNotifRQ ...>  
      HotelName="RtB Property 1001"    
                <BookingModel Type="IB"/>  

You can opt-in again by using <BookingModel Type="RTB"/> instead.

Switching between IB and RTB booking flow

You can switch a property from IB to RTB booking flow only if it was eligible for RTB at the time of creation.

Refer to the Content API documentation to better understand how to use the OTA_HotelDescriptiveContentNotif endpoint in Overlay mode.

The following section shows how to allow partners to update using the Extranet settings.
