Service Action Code
OTA_HotelInvBlockNotif

Each message must include all data for only one group block, for only one hotel, and for only one action type. SynXis will delete all existing group rate amount and allocation data prior to loading an inventory block modification; so, any data not included in a modification will not exist for the group block.

Only one rate plan may be associated to each group block; however, each group block may have multiple room types associated to it.

Group integration must include Group Create, Group Modify and Group Cancel messaging. You should also support Group Reservations if you integrate group blocks. Group Committed and Group Sold Counts should be updated from the PMS.

The following lists the type of data supported in the Group Block upload:

  • Basic group block details such as codes, name and descriptions
  • Group block contact details
  • Group block dates including start, end and release dates
  • Group block rate amounts
  • Group block allocations
  • Group block sell limits
  • Group block sold quantities
