Step 4 – Create rate plan

You have now specified your basic property information and one room type. The next step is to create a rate plan.

Rate plans contain very little information. They don't even contain a room price. The only purpose of a rate plan is to link a room type to a sellable product. Don't worry if this is confusing: you'll learn more about products later.

Use this method and URL to create a new rate plan:

POST https://supply-xml.booking.com/hotels/ota/OTA_HotelRatePlanNotif

As usual, the sample request below contains {PlaceHolders}.

Sample request

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <!-- Replace the {PlaceHolder} in the following line! -->
  <RatePlans HotelCode="{PropertyID}">
    <RatePlan RatePlanNotifType="New">
      <Description Name="Basic rate 2 guests"/>

This request creates one new rate plan, containing a name and not much else. We'll explain its purpose soon.

Sample response

A successful response includes a RatePlanCrossRef[@ResponseRatePlanCode] attribute containing the rate plan ID:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
