Your are able to use any of the Sellers and hotels available in your account (check the active sellers in your account here) for the certification process. 

What information do you need to provide for the certification?

In order to proceed with the certification we'll need:

  • A CURL request and response of each of the Booking Flow and Booking Management methods from each of the cases detailed in the previous point.
  • The resulting Hotel-X response interpretation screenshots of your system so we can ensure you are showing the information correctly. 

What we will be checking?

In the Hotel-X certification, we will be checking the following points: 
  • Usage of general data structure of our API
  • Usage of the correct Booking Flow (Search, Quote, Book) and Management (Booking Query, Cancel).
  • The arrival and departure dates.
  • The correct handling of the prices (net price, gross price, commission, etc.).
  • Possible cancellation policies applied to that booking (if you use it).
  • The information of the room selected (id, code, description, etc.).
  • The meal plan selected.
  • Provide Seller's remarks on the entire booking flow.
  • Enabled GZIP compression header.
  • Understanding of the different payment types supported through Hotel-X.

What access code should I use throughout my development and certification?

You can use any of the default accesses from "My Connections". You can also activate any Seller you have an agreement with, even their production environment. However, bear in mind that you should only perform reservations once you've passed the certification process

We recommend using access "0" for your certification process as it will return all the information you need to complete your cases. 

Additional notes and recommendations:

  • Audit transactions in Search: Make sure you configure both your Query and Query variables according to this information:
query ($criteriaSearch: HotelCriteriaSearchInput, $settings: HotelSettingsInput, $filter: FilterInput) {
  hotelX {
    search(criteria: $criteriaSearch, settings: $settings, filter: $filter) {
      auditData {
        transactions {
