What's the difference between single mode and multimode when performing a Hotel-X Search?

Our Hotel-X APIs is packed with lots of features and one of them is the possibility to chose between searching in a single mode vs searching in a multi mode.

Single Mode

The default mode in Hotel-X allows our Partners to perform one search at a time per Seller connected to their account.

How does it work?

When running your Search, you should introduce the access code of the Seller you would like to query.

*Unless you've uploaded your mapping file to our FTP, you'll have to perform the Search using the Seller context.

Multi mode

The multi mode query allows our Partners to search multiple Sellers at the same time and with just one request.

How does it work?

In order to be able to use the multi mode, first you should upload your mapping with the Sellers connected to your account on our FTP (more information here). Once the mapping/s files have been uploaded, then you will be able to place your searches to multiple Sellers using your own context (hotel codes) as follows:

  • Specifying the access codes in the filter node:

    The query will only be sent to the accesses specified.
  • Not specifying the accesses.

    The query will be sent to all the accesses connected to your account (only the ones belonging to the Sellers where the mapping file has been uploaded). Depending on the value of the "testMode" field, only the accesses set to test or production will be requested.
