HotelsSupplierDetailsRequest

This request is intended to be used on the following scenarios:

1. You are working on 4 step mode (DetailLevel = Meta/NoPackages), which is the best practice and the recommended way of implementing our API.

Using that call, you will get full RoomsPackage information, including supplier original room values (Class, Type, Board/Basis).

2. The supplier is implemented as a 4 step:

Examples: Booking.com, HRS, Priceline, DOTW, RTS, HotelsPro, etc.

Those suppliers return only a 'From' price on their search response without any packages / room price information.

In order to get packages and rooms from these suppliers, it is necessary to use this API call, otherwise you won't be able to call GetCancellationPolicy (as no valid PackageId retreieved) and perform any booking.

3. You are willing to get the applicable payment option for specific hotel id packages. This relevant only for Gross suppliers which support different payment types: PostPay / PrePay.

4. You are willing to get Taxes and Fees to be paid at the hotel.

See more details on the bottom part of this document.

 

Please be advised: You can use this call only for items that were returned in the last search response of your current session.

Please follow the explanations and examples below.
