Activate a rate plan

After a rate plan has been deactivated, you may want to activate it again. Use /ota/OTA_HotelRatePlanNotif to activate rates.

Activating a rate plan does not return roomrates and availability

If you activate a deactivated rate plan, you must create new roomrates (products) and then push availability again.
