Understanding promotions

The Promotions API enables you to create and manage promotions. Promotions help properties offer discounted prices, with the discounts specified as a percentage of the parent rate.

Use the Promotions API to:

  • Create a promotion.
  • Update an existing promotion to change the promotion validity dates.
  • Activate/deactivate a promotion.
  • View promotion details.

Promotions in the extranet appear under the Promotions tab.

Promotions API endpoints

Use the following two Promotions endpoints:

  • /promotions endpoint - Create, update, activate, and deactivate promotions
  • /getpromotions endpoint - Retrieve existing promotions details
