The ARI Sync- Rates (OTA) is used to provide a notification of a new rate plan created for a hotel, and to synchronize the rate plan between systems for booking.
This is used to update product rate amounts and may also be used to update sell limits at the product level.
When updating rate amounts for a product it is possible to do a full overlay of amounts for all dates or an update to only specified dates for the product. A full overlay is considered a “FullLoad” and results in rate amounts for dates not sent in a given message to be deleted from the Control Center system. A partial update is considered a “DeltaLoad” and results in changes to only the dates specified in a given message. The type of update is defined in the UniqueID element. If no update type is specified, the “FullLoad” update type is used as the default. If rate amounts for a given product need to be split across multiple messages the “DeltaLoad” update type should be specified. If this is not specified, data from a previous message deletes during subsequent updates.
