What’s in store for 2022

We used your feedback to update the Connectivity Partner Programme for 2022. Expect more visibility to help you track your performance, plus more changes.

What to expect

Important deprecation updates

We’ve begun deprecating a few API features related to the Contracting and Photos APIs, and on 15 February will be deprecating these additional API options, which will eventually sunset – HotelierMessage, Licences and Children Policies V1. Review our deprecation schedule to make sure you’ve lined up alternatives – or have implemented any available workarounds – for all deprecations in the coming year.
