Rates, hiring, plan changes and cessation of service

  • AVAIBOOK offers the CLIENT the SERVICE with different PLANS and MODALITIES of contracting, being public and accessible from the WEBSITE, that the CLIENT accepts to know, and freely contracts the option that adjusts to their needs.

  • In the cases where renovations are carried out or if the Customer increases or decreases accommodation or changes plans, the prices published on the website will be charged
  • The main type-costs of the PLANS are the following ones (under the assumption that the current costs will be those associated with any SERVICE on the WEBSITE):

  • The CUSTOMER may choose to modify the PLAN, from its private area in the web section explicitly enabled for it (in its private area) and where the conditions applicable to each change are explained and it is understood that they are accepted by the CUSTOMER in case of proceeding with the change of PLAN.In any case, the CUSTOMER will assume at all times the costs corresponding to the PLAN contracted at all times, which will not prevent them from requesting the modification of PLAN as many times as they wish, subject to compliance with the procedure and conditions of change of PLAN.
  • Procedure and conditions for change of Plan in Plans with Periodic Quota: The CUSTOMER can change to a higher PLAN at any time (they can choose whether the change takes effect instantly - in which case they renounce the rest of the paid period of the current plan - or from the end of the paid period of the current PLAN - before the next renewal -). Likewise, the CUSTOMER may change to a lower PLAN provided that the limitations of the PLAN to which they wish to change are met (by way of example, if the CUSTOMER has 8 ACCOMMODATIONS and the PLAN to which they wish to change is limited to 5 ACCOMMODATIONS, they will have to cancel 3 of them in order to be able to comply with this limitation) at any time. The change to a lower PLAN will have immediate effect (in which case the CLIENT waives the rest of the period already paid of the current PLAN).
  • Procedure and conditions of change of flat rate plans (Standard and PRO): The CUSTOMER may increase or decrease the number of accommodation at any time applying the rates in force on the web for the number of accommodation chosen and maintaining the same initial renewal date.
  • Procedure and trial plan change conditions for 3 months: Once the test is completed, the test will be done on the same chosen plan.
  • AVAIBOOK published rates do not include taxes, unless otherwise specified.
  • Invoices of the AVAIBOOK service: all the costs of the service are invoiced automatically by our system in accordance with Spanish and European accounting and tax laws, and according to the fiscal data indicated by the CUSTOMER, who is responsible for ensuring that they are true and correct. Invoices will always be available in electronic format through the CUSTOMER's private area in AVAIBOOK. The CUSTOMER is responsible for obtaining such invoices and processing them correctly according to the accounting and tax laws that apply.
  • AVAIBOOK will notify the CLIENT of any change that is going to take place in the PLANS and MODALITIES, as well as in their associated RATES, at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to their date of application.
    • If the modification of the tariff affects the fixed cost (subscription) (periodic) of the PLAN, it cannot be applied during the current period already contracted, but will be applicable from the next renewal, leaving it to the discretion of the CLIENT to opt for a change of PLAN or to cease the SERVICE once the contracted period has expired.
    • Any other modification will be applied from the date announced by AVAIBOOK if the CUSTOMER continues using the SERVICE.
  • PLANS are contracted with a specific modality that determines their duration, from the moment of contracting. The validity of the PLAN is informed to the CLIENT from his private area of AVAIBOOK, which they expressly accept to know.
  • The SERVICE is automatically renewed if the CLIENT has not notified the cancellation or "non-renewal" of the renewal date, with at least ten (10) calendar days notice, for which they must make this request from their private area of AVAIBOOK.AVAIBOOK does not admit any other way to notify the cancellation, unless AVAIBOOK explicitly acknowledges receipt of other means of notification.
  • If the CLIENT requests the cancellation or "non-renewal" of the SERVICE, they may continue using it until the end of the contracted period, but in no case will the SERVICE fees paid for the contracted period be reimbursed, nor in the event that the cancellation is due to a cessation of the SERVICE by AVAIBOOK due to non-compliance by the CLIENT.

Avaibook account or Avaibook balance

  • Each CUSTOMER has in their private area of AVAIBOOK an account section also called AVAIBOOK BALANCE ACCOUNT, where the economic status of the CUSTOMER is centralized with AVAIBOOK, centralizing and reflecting all the economic movements of the CUSTOMER associated with AVAIBOOK and with the use of the SERVICE.
  • Movements of income for the CLIENT: will be those for which the CLIENT charges some amount through the services that the payment gateways of AVAIBOOK have incorporated (BDP / Pay-in), such as receiving a reservation through the RESERVATION MOTOR and collect the advance payment of that reservation.Also of this type will be the payments of specific services that the CLIENT pays to AVAIBOOK by means of their credit or debit card, or the recharges of balance by transfer to face pending charges in AVAIBOOK.
  • Charge movements for the CUSTOMER: correspond to the costs of the AVAIBOOK service.
  • CUSTOMER balance: as a result of the movements in the AVAIBOOK BALANCE ACCOUNT the CUSTOMER has an amount of money, which we call BALANCE which will have a certain AVAILABILITY.
  • AVAILABILITY: every movement reflected in the AVAIBOOK BALANCE ACCOUNT will have an availability date that is set according to different security parameters relating to each operation and to the CLIENT'S profile, which we call RISK INDICATORS, as well as according to the policy of cancellations and validation of the accommodation that the reservation has, on which the card payment is being made (BDP). The availability will always be visible in this section and until that date the resulting amount will not be available in the AVAIBOOK BALANCE ACCOUNT and during that time will be supervised by AVAIBOOK. In addition, the CUSTOMER is presented with the amount available at the moment, and available in the future in their account.
  • RISK INDICATORS: AVAIBOOK manages different risk indicators, both for card payment transactions (BDP) and for each CUSTOMER's own operations. These indicators are used to calculate the date of availability of each of the movements, and by extension for the availability of the CUSTOMER'S BALANCE.
  • Custody of the CUSTOMER balance (if applicable to the contracted SERVICE): AVAIBOOK informs the CUSTOMER that the resulting balance in their AVAIBOOK BALANCE ACCOUNT will be kept by Paytpv On Line Payment Entity, S.L. (hereinafter "PAYTPV"), a payment entity registered in the Register of Payment Entities of the Bank of Spain, under number 6874.Therefore, the CUSTOMER knows and accepts that AVAIBOOK will carry out the custody of their BALANCE through PAYTPV.
  • PAY-OUT: The CUSTOMER will associate a credit/debit card, and an IBAN bank account of their ownership, which will be used to send the CUSTOMER their available BALANCE (PAY-OUT), and to charge any amount of the SERVICE that accumulates in their AVAIBOOK BALANCE ACCOUNT.
    • The ownership of the IBAN bank account must be credited by the CUSTOMER and the data of the holder must match the data of the CUSTOMER in AVAIBOOK.
    • The CUSTOMER's bank account must belong to a financial institution operating in the European Economic Area (EEA).
    • The CUSTOMER must provide the SWIFT associated with the bank account if requested.
    • The CUSTOMER will keep AVAIBOOK free of any extraordinary costs that could be involved in working with the configured IBAN account.
    • AVAIBOOK reserves the right to refuse or reject certain bank accounts in the event of incidents or costs added to AVAIBOOK for normal use (issuance of transfer and/or receipts).
  • GUARANTEE ACCOUNT: the CUSTOMER BALANCE ACCOUNT and the associated PAYMENT AND COLLECTION METHODS act as the CUSTOMER GUARANTEE ACCOUNT against AVAIBOOK, so that any cost of the SERVICE will be charged to the AVAIBOOK BALANCE ACCOUNT, and if there is no BALANCE available or it is deemed appropriate AVAIBOOK may charge the corresponding amounts to the card or bank account, being accepted and not returned in any case by the CUSTOMER. These charges, as applicable, will always be informed and visible to the CUSTOMER in their private area of AVAIBOOK.
    • The CLIENT accepts that the GUARANTEE ACCOUNT constitutes a guarantee against AVAIBOOK in relation to its payment obligations arising from the provision of the SERVICE.
    • This liability shall extend beyond the term of the period in which the customer uses the SERVICE if the customer's RISK profile is high, or if the volume and/or RISK of BOP transactions performed is high.
    • RECEIPTS: the CLIENT accepts to receive direct debit bills in the configured account. For this, they will have to inform the corresponding financial institution through the protocol established by their institution, so that the bills drawn up by AVAIBOOK are accepted, constituting the acceptance of these conditions of use as an 'acceptance of the SEPA mandate'.
      • If a receipt issued to the CUSTOMER is reversed or returned, the CUSTOMER undertakes to face a penalty as a service fee, and to assume such payment by accepting the receipt that will again be issued, or paying it by bank transfer, or BALANCE if at that time they had it.
  • BALANCE: AVAIBOOK performs a daily process by which the available amount resulting in the account of each CUSTOMER is settled.If the available BALANCE is positive, and higher than a collection UMBRAL set by the customer, this amount will be sent to the customer (PAY-OUT).And if it is negative, a charge will be issued to the CUSTOMER as explained in the previous paragraph (to their card or their IBAN account).
  • PAY-OUT: consists of sending the CUSTOMER'S available BALANCE to your bank account via SEPA transfer.This process will be carried out by AVAIBOOK several times a week, after BALANCING, with the greatest diligence and speed possible. AVAIBOOK does not assume responsibility for any delays or incidents that may occur in such transfers if they are attributable to the financial institution of destination (bank of the CUSTOMER).
    • It will be the responsibility of the CUSTOMER any commission or expense your bank charges for the receipt of such transfers.
    • It will be the CUSTOMER'S responsibility to properly configure their IBAN account to receive payments from AVAIBOOK, and if they are rejected by the CUSTOMER's bank they accept that they will have to provide an alternative IBAN account to which they can send these payments and that they will have to pay a commission for the management of the return and the re-processing of the payment.
    • AVAIBOOK can keep in custody payments to the CUSTOMER if it observes a high RISK profile. The determination of the CUSTOMER'S RISK profile will depend on the outcome of the KYC procedure (know your client) carried out by AVAIBOOK, as well as different evaluations of the CUSTOMER's actions (FRAUD SCORING).

Functioning and particularities of the management system

  • The CUSTOMER is solely responsible for configuring and keeping their ACCOMMODATIONS and all matters relating thereto up to date, including (without limitation): rates, offers, seasons, restrictions, cancellation policy, billing template (BDP), etc. and in particular the availability calendar.
  • VALIDATION OF ACCOMMODATIONS: AVAIBOOK offers CUSTOMERS the opportunity to validate the existence of the accommodations they manage, so that no physical existence or fraudulent publication is ruled out. For this purpose, AVAIBOOK offers the validation service through different procedures published in the private area of AVAIBOOK for the CUSTOMER. The CLIENT accepts these methods and their derived costs (published at all times in AVAIBOOK), and in case of validation by any method they are responsible for providing real, truthful and reliable information about their accommodations.
    • When an accommodation is validated they will have the ANTIFRAUDE WARRANTY activated.
    • AVAIBOOK may request additional information at its discretion to validate the actual existence of any accommodation, beyond the standard validation methods, if it has reasonable doubt or any incidence related to any of the accommodations.
  • ANTI-FRAUD GUARANTEE: This is a safety and reliability mechanism for the TRAVELLER to face possible fraudulent ACCOMMODATIONS. It consists in that the money collected from reserves related to an ACCOMMODATION with the active ANTI-FRAUD GUARANTEE will not appear as available BALANCE until two days after the starting date of the reservation. This measure allows the ACCOMMODATION to be reliable and the TRAVELLER to reserve with tranquility.The CLIENT may keep the ANTI-FRAUD GUARANTEE active if they wish even when they have validated the ACCOMMODATION.
  • CANCELLATION POLICY: the CUSTOMER is solely responsible for mandatorily setting the cancellation policy that they wish for each of their accommodations, and for complying with it for the reservations they receive in such accommodations. The CANCELLATION POLICY consists of two different parts:
    • Cancellation policy guaranteed by AVAIBOOK: this involves establishing a deadline up to which the TRAVELLER can cancel with the right to refund the amounts paid (minus SERVICE commissions).
    • Cancellation policy particular and additional: if the customer wishes to offer other conditions of cancellation beyond the guaranteed one by AVAIBOOK, the CUSTOMER can describe that cancellation policy and it will always be managed by their part in such a case.
  • AVAIBOOK acts as a "trusted third party" and a manager of cancellations for the TRAVELLER, always applying the CANCELLATION POLICY that the client has configured.To this end, the CUSTOMER accepts that AVAIBOOK will manage the amounts collected in their reservations (BDP) to ensure compliance with these CANCELLATION POLICIES and that in the event of a cancellation it will be responsible for returning the amounts paid by the TRAVELLER (less commissions of the SERVICE), if appropriate, depending on the origin of the reservation:
    • If the reservation has been received by the AVAIBOOK BOOKING ENGINE will evaluate the CANCELLATION POLICY guaranteed by AVAIBOOK and make the return to the TRAVELLER if applicable.
    • If the reservation has been received by the CHANNEL MANAGER and it is a channel with which we have defined or receive the cancellation policy information, and so has configured the CLIENT, AVAIBOOK will be responsible for making the return to the TRAVELLER if it was the case.
    • If the reservation has been manually registered in the system, it will be the CUSTOMER's responsibility to manage the cancellation always complying with the CANCELLATION POLICY and to make any returns if necessary.

      In any other case the management of the cancellation must be done by the CLIENT, always complying with the CANCELLATION POLICY, and make any returns to the TRAVELLER if applicable. If this management is omitted or not respected by the CLIENT, AVAIBOOK may temporarily withhold or refund the payments made to the TRAVELER through BDP.

      In the case of manual reservations managed by the CLIENT, the CLIENT is responsible for informing the TRAVELLER of the CANCELLATION POLICY and keeping documentary proof of acceptance.

      AVAIBOOK acts as a "trusted third party" that will always make available to the parties the Cancellation Policy accepted by the parties at the time of booking, if it is aware of it (BOOKING ENGINE and any reservation by CHANNEL MANAGER).

      Whatever cancellation policy is valid and agreed by both parties when making a reservation, AVAIBOOK shall always admit a bilateral agreement between the parties that may resolve the incident, rejecting any responsibility for this matter with any of the parties.

  • The CLIENT is responsible for fixing and fulfilling the RESERVATION CONDITIONS for all their accommodations. In the case of reservations processed through the AVAIBOOK BOOKING ENGINE, there are "framework" RESERVATION CONDITIONS which are published and accepted by the TRAVELLER when making the reservation through the BOOKING ENGINE.Within these "framework" RESERVATION CONDITIONS the CLIENT can define certain particularities according to their convenience, completing this configuration in the data of their ACCOMMODATIONS.
  • The CUSTOMER is responsible, in all their reservations, that the TRAVELLER knows the CANCELLATION POLICIES and BOOKING CONDITIONS and document the entire process, in particular and without limitation:
    • Identification of the holder of the reservation.
    • Acceptance by means of identification and signature of the reservation conditions.
    • Verification of any credit/debit cards used by the passenger to make payments associated with the reservation (BDP), verifying ownership and coincidence of the same with the data of the holder of the reservation.
    • Entranced document (check-in) signed by the TRAVELLER and companions who enjoy the reservation, as well as identification of all of them by means of DNI, Passport or document of equivalent legal validity. And if this documentary record is required to be made available to the security forces of each country or region, the CUSTOMER is responsible for doing so.
    • Acceptance on the part of the TRAVELLER by means of signature of each one of the possible charges made to their credit/debit card related to the reservation.

      AVAIBOOK may require from the CUSTOMER evidence of any documents and information indicated above. The CUSTOMER undertakes to provide such documentation and undertakes to keep documentary records for at least the legally required period as appropriate.

  • If there is a duly documented complaint to AVAIBOOK about the non-existence of fraudulent accommodation or publication, or non-compliance with booking conditions and/or cancellation policy, AVAIBOOK may keep the CUSTOMER'S BALANCE blocked until the CUSTOMER can duly document the case, and AVAIBOOK may, at its sole disposal, cancel the reservations affected, return the amounts charged and cancel the service to the CUSTOMER.

Booking engine

  • The CUSTOMER is responsible for configuring the BOOKING ENGINE on their website, as well as configuring and maintaining updated information on the accommodation shown (rates, calendar, photos, descriptions).
  • The RESERVATION ENGINE uses the CANCELLATION POLICY and RESERVATION CONDITIONS information that the CUSTOMER has to configure and maintain about their ACCOMMODATIONS as described in the operation of the MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.
  • OPERATING MODES: the CUSTOMER can configure the booking engine in "Direct booking" (ON-LINE) or "ON-REQUEST" mode. In case of setting "Direct booking" an online booking is automatically confirmed if the dates are available.In the case of "On request" the reservation will have to be accepted by the CLIENT.
  • In ON-REQUEST operation the CUSTOMER receives a notice by email and/or SMS and must accept the reservation within 24 hours. Otherwise the reservation will be automatically denied.
  • If the CLIENT chooses the "Direct Booking" mode, it is obligatory to keep the availability calendar permanently updated, in order to avoid overbooking. And in the event that the calendar is not updated and a duplicate booking is made, the CLIENT must give priority to the booking received through AVAIBOOK or failing that, provide the traveller with accommodation of equal or higher quality for the same or lower cost for the desired dates, taking care of the management and any additional cost that might be incurred (or reach a solution by mutual agreement with the traveler). The RESERVATION MOTOR always works on the configuration set by the CLIENT (free dates, rates, cancellation conditions, advance payment to be charged...) being the responsibility of the CLIENT to keep this configuration updated and accept the reservations received.
  • When a reservation is received, an amount determined by the CLIENT is charged as an ANTICIPUS to confirm the reservation, which will be charged by means of payment by Card or Transfer, depending on the CLIENT's configuration and the conditions of the way the reservation works (on request mode only accepts payment by card).
  • The CLIENT has to configure a specific BDP template that will be the one that AVAIBOOK will apply in case of receiving a reservation by the BOOKING ENGINE.
    • In this template it is obligatory to define an amount called ANTICIPLE which will be obligatory for the TRAVELLER to pay in order to be able to confirm a reservation.This advance payment applies regardless of the method of payment (card or transfer).
    • In addition to the advance payment, other charges can be defined for the REST of the reservation, which AVAIBOOK will charge to the traveller, in the case of having paid by card, on the dates and amounts that the CLIENT has configured and to the card registered in the reservation.
      • All these charges can only be configured to be executed after the deadline of the CANCELLATION POLICY guaranteed by AVAIBOOK.
  • COST OF THE BOOKING ENGINE: it has a variable cost depending on the following concepts (the CLIENT can use on-line reservations for their own website, or activate it for certain portals integrated with AVAIBOOK, which can charge a certain commission -point c-):
    • A variable cost per reservation (cost subject to expiration, currently applicable only to some plans): as administrative expenses, which by default will be assumed by the CUSTOMER, unless it decides to configure it to be assumed by the traveller.The current rates will always be visible in the private area of the CLIENT (section my account->my plan).
    • Variable cost for BDP charges: A "financial" commission that depends on the form of payment for which the TRAVELLER pays the reservation (which will be calculated only on an amount that the CLIENT sets as an advance payment for an on-line reservation, and depending on the forms of payment that the CLIENT activates from among those that AVAIBOOK offers, being published the commissions of each form of payment in the section where the CLIENT can configure such forms of payment). If the client configures other charges in addition to the ANTICIPLE in their BDP, this rate will also be charged.
    • If occasionally a portal integrated with AVAIBOOK offers reservations through our engine, it is possible to charge a booking fee, in which case the commission will be charged to the CLIENT by AVAIBOOK (who will be responsible for liquidating the portal).If the client configures other charges in addition to the ANTICIPLE in their BDP, this rate will also be charged. In any case, when a portal charges a commission, it must inform the CLIENT, who must know and accept it in order to receive reservations from the PORTAL. In this case AVAIBOOK is a technological tool to the PORTAL and to the CLIENT and works according to the configuration set by these two parties, which are obliged to be informed and to accept the conditions under which AVAIBOOK has no responsibility.
    • When a reservation is processed by means of the BOOKING ENGINE, the CANCELLATION POLICIES and the RESERVATION CONDITIONS will be published to the TRAVELLER, which the traveler must have read and accepted in order to process the reservation, so that in reservations by this origin AVAIBOOK facilitates the fulfilment of this requirement by the owner.
      • These conditions are fixed as configured at the time of booking, which are applicable, and any subsequent modification is not applicable unless the CLIENT informs the TRAVELLER and the latter expressly accepts, in which case the CLIENT must be responsible for keeping a record of the acceptance of these conditions.
      • If the CLIENT makes any change in the reservation must be mutually agreed with the TRAVELLER and inform them.
      • The CUSTOMER may not charge any amount beyond those published at the time of booking, as to do so would contravene the conditions of booking.
    • In case of reservations received by the MOTOR AVAIBOOK is responsible for guaranteeing the TRAVELLER exclusively the CANCELLATION POLICY guaranteed by AVAIBOOK, protecting the amount paid by the TRAVELER at the time of booking (and later through BDP) up to the limit in which it would be in time to make a cancellation with the right to receive a refund. In such a case, AVAIBOOK manages the refund directly, subtracting the booking engine costs (online booking fee, "financial" fee for using the payment gateway and occasionally the portal's commission if there was one and it was "non-refundable").
    • The CLIENT is obliged to attend the reservations received through the AVAIBOOK BOOKING ENGINE, but exceptional situations may occur such as force majeure, in which case the OWNER may cancel a reservation. In such a case, the OWNER must pay some penalties calculated according to each booking and the cancellation reasons. In addition, the OWNER is obliged to communicate the circumstance directly to the TRAVELLER and offer other accommodation of similar or higher quality without any additional cost to him, or reach a particular agreement. In case of a cancellation made by the OWNER, being the money in the "owner's account", AVAIBOOK shall manage the refund to the TRAVELLER as a guarantee of return. It will deduct the booking engine costs (online booking fee, "financial" fee for using the payment gateway and occasionally the portal's commission if there was one and it was "non-refundable").
    • The TRAVELLER may cancel a booking via the web form mentioned in the confirmation booking email.
    • AVAIBOOK shall always keep a record of the cancellation policy valid and agreed by both parties when making a reservation, as well as the information proving that both parties admitted it, and since it plays an impartial role, it shall make available for both parties or their legal representatives, as well as for any official organism that so requires, the aforementioned records proving both parties' commitments when making the reservation.

Channel Manager

  • Through the CHANNEL MANAGER module the CLIENT connects the information of certain ACCOMMODATIONS configured in AVAIBOOK with their corresponding announcements in certain PORTALS (or CHANNELS) with which AVAIBOOK has developed synchronization.
  • AVAIBOOK does not take part in the commercial or contractual relationship between PORTAL and CLIENT, being simply a technological tool that the CLIENT hires and uses to maintain the information with the PORTAL in a more efficient manner. And therefore AVAIBOOK assumes no responsibility or intermediation of any kind between PORTAL and CLIENT.
  • The CLIENT assumes that they know how the different PORTALS they connect work, and the particularities of the synchronization with each one, since the synchronization with each one is particular and specific.
  • The information that is synchronized between AVAIBOOK and a connected CHANNEL is the information that the CLIENT has configured and maintains, either in AVAIBOOK or in the PORTAL, and for which they are always responsible. Understanding that certain information that is synchronized between several CHANNELS will be updated when it is updated by any of them (with some CHANNELS the synchronization of certain information is bidirectional), affecting this update to all other CHANNELS that update it. For example the availability calendar.
  • Some channels allow the synchronization of rates to have the "possibility to change", in this way the price sent to the PORTAL is modified, according to the rates configured in AVAIBOOK, in a factor that the CLIENT configures. In these cases the maintenance of the rates can only be carried out in AVAIBOOK, and never in the CHANNEL, to avoid inadequate modifications of prices.
  • The CLIENT is responsible for defining and maintaining the CANCELLATION POLICY and RESERVATION CONDITIONS in each of the PORTALS, and respecting them at all times for the reservations received by each portal. These policies should match or be compatible with the BDP charging rules defined in AVAIBOOK.
  • For certain CHANNELS where synchronisation allows downloading booking data including credit/debit card data, AVAIBOOK allows you to set up a BDP template which will be displayed when new bookings arrive from the PORTAL. The CLIENT is responsible for maintaining the said collection rules (BDP) in accordance with and always respecting the CANCELLATION POLICY and the RESERVATION CONDITIONS. And in the case of a cancellation of a reservation, for which charges (BDP) have been deployed (made or scheduled), the CUSTOMER undertakes to evaluate and respect the CANCELLATION POLICY, making in that case the returns of such charges and the cancellation of the charges that had scheduled and unexecuted.
  • Some channels use iCal synchronization technology. Such technology has certain limitations in terms of refresh frequency and the non-existence of a market standard, so the connection through iCal requires the CLIENT to understand well its operation, limitations and risks. AVAIBOOK rejects any responsibility generated by a problem in the iCal service of any CANAL.
  • Costs associated with the CHANNEL MANAGER: the SERVICE allows a limited number of PORTALS to be connected, according to the AVAIBOOK plan contracted. Within these limits, the use of the CHANNEL MANAGER has no additional cost in addition to the plan. There are certain CHANNELS considered "Premium" that can only be connected if the customer has contracted a payment PLAN (it is not possible to connect it for free or special PLANS). There are certain variable costs, depending on the case:
    • Variable reservation cost downloaded (cost subject to expiration currently applicable only to some plans): for those CHANNELS where synchronization allows us to load in AVAIBOOK reservation data (more information besides simply closing availability dates).
    • Variable cost for BDP charges: the rates for the BDP service, if the CUSTOMER uses the same for CHANNELS in which we receive the card data.
  • In case of cancellation of a reservation that has been received by a CHANNEL, by default it is understood that the variable commissions that could have been generated (by downloading the reservation and/or by card charges (BDP), will not be reimbursable, unless otherwise specified in certain PORTALS.
