Family rates

Use our APIs to easily set up rooms and rates for families

The Property Management API supports setting up rates based on the age of children, and the Room & Rate Plan Management API allows rooms to be configured by the maximum number of guests, including adults and children.

Recently we released an upgrade that improves how reservations by families are received via our API. But what about the set-up when it comes to families? We’ve been working closely with providers and accommodation partners to upgrade extranet and Connectivity functionalities to make it possible to set up rooms and rates for families.

Properties can now allocate rooms for children and set rates by child age to attract more families to their property. On average, families stay 28% longer and book at a 27% higher rate than solo travellers and couples  – so they’re a very valuable traveller segment for your properties.

How does it work?

The endpoint 'HotelInvNotif' of the Room & Rate Plan Management API allows properties to set up the maximum room occupancy by total guests, including adults and children. Using the HotelDescriptiveContentNotif of the Content API - Property Management, properties can set up to three pricing rules by child age. In order to display a child rate on Booking.com, both a room and price rule for children must be set up.

Both endpoint upgrades are now available via the Partner Portal documentation pages. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our support team.
