Liberate certification

On the Direct Payment bookings the currency to be paid to the hotelier can differ from the configured for the market or account. For this cases you will receive in all the steps of the booking the attribute "hotelSellingRate" with its own "hotelCurrency" attribute.

Before confirming the booking

We will check that, in case of the currency of the market and hotelier differ, you show the price of the booking in both currencies in the last step before confirm the booking:

Amount to be paid to the hotelier:
   "hotelSellingRate": "145.13",
   "hotelCurrency": "USD",                 

Equivalent amount on the market currency:
   "totalNet": "123.18",             
   "currency": "EUR",

In addition, you need to show and let the client select one credit card from the received "creditCards" on the availability or checkRates response. Only those cards will be accepted by the hotelier and Booking request.

 "creditCards": [
      {
        "code": "VI",
        "name": "VISA-SSL",
        "paymentType": "AT_HOTEL"
      },
      {
        "code": "AE",
        "name": "AMEX-SSL",
        "paymentType": "AT_HOTEL"
      },
      {
        "code": "MC",
        "name": "ECMC-SSL",
        "paymentType": "AT_HOTEL"
      }
    ],

After confirming the booking

In addition of all required information to be printed on the voucher, on liberate bookings you need to print the prices in both currencies, if any, with a static extended declaration:

Total amount to be paid at the hotel: 558.17 EUR
The payment will be done in the currency stated. As a reference, the Final Sales Price in the client currency is 401.85 GBP (shown for informational purposes only and calculated at booking creation date).

The total amount of the stay will be due at the hotel in the indicated currency. Any complaint needs to be reported directly to the hotel. During the reservation process, a verification of the credit card has been done by charging 1EUR, which will automatically be refunded at the confirmation of the reservation.

Taxes: VAT included, Supplement per service included, local/touristic taxes not applicable.

The accommodation establishment may verify the validity of the credit card by (pre) authorizing for the amount of the cancellation fees or may charge the applicable cancellation fees as a guarantee from the moment those apply. If no cancellation is made, these fees will be discounted from the payment at the hotel.

If the hotel cannot verify the credit card, it has the right to cancel the booking. If the booked rate has a Non Refundable Rate, the hotel is entitled to charge the entire amount of the booking on the credit card upon receipt of the booking confirmation. Non Refundable bookings cannot be amended nor cancelled and will be charged for the entire amount of the booking.

*If you need a translation of above text we can retrieve it to you.

Finally, on Liberate bookings you may print the following text: “Bookable and payable by Passenger at the hotel” instead of vatNumber and Supplier name.

On the BookingRS, the Supplier name will be replaced with Passenger at the hotel, you can still get it from there only hiding the vatNumber.
