When a hotel has agreed to be listed on the Booking API, our hotel onboarding team starts the process. This involves gathering and cross-checking content from various sources to ensure the accuracy and breadth of information that we make available in the API. The hotel is not required to manually upload their content and rates onto Impala, providing an effortless experience.
Our process starts with retrieving content and rates, and we source this data from rate shopping. We also provide the opportunity for hotels to review their content and request changes to ensure we have up-to-date content. The hotel content available on our API includes the following:
- Hotel description
- Hotel amenities
- Room types along with their amenities, occupancy, and prices
Once all the content, rates, and availability have been sourced, the hotel is ready to go live on Impala and available for distribution partners to make available for booking on their platform.
