Almere, April 2018 – NextPax, the leading developer of vacation rental IT connectivity solutions, is excited to be one of the first channel managers to deploy the complete two-way connection to TripAdvisor Rentals. With the new two-way API-connection, content, rates, availability and bookings can now be synchronized in near real time between TripAdvisor Rentals and the reservation system.
Up until now, data was pushed one way – from reservation system to TripAdvisor Rentals. With the new functionality, data will now be synchronized both directions making it easier, more efficient and more accurate than ever before, providing an improved experience for both travelers booking on the site and homeowners or property managers who list on TripAdvisor. When a booking is made, there will be a pre-booking check to ensure rates and availability are correct. Once the booking is completed, NextPax will push the booking into the reservation system.
‘We are very pleased with the results the technical teams of TripAdvisor Rentals and NextPax have achieved,’ says Robert van der Mast, CTO of NextPax. ‘In addition to the two-way API, a live request is sent to the Assisted Rates API to ensure near real time pricing. This means property managers can now also offer best available rates directly at TripAdvisor, improving their conversion via the distribution channel.’
