Booking notification

This endpoint should be implemented by partners connecting to Holidu’s API and willing to have their properties bookable on Holidu.

Holidu will send a request to notify the partners when one of their properties is booked. The partners need to register the booking in their system and confirm the receiving of the booking. There needs to be a unique transaction id for any successful transmitted booking provided by the partner in the response to the request.

❗️

Please only accept bookings if the total price in the booking notification matches the price in your system. Due to some configuration errors or time delays it can be possible to have price differences between your prices and the prices shown on holidu, BUT the customer books the property based on the prices shown on holidu. In order to avoid customer complaints and cancelled bookings, please reject bookings with a wrong price directly.
