How to connect to FarCloserTravel

How to connect to FarCloserTravel and what to expect when a contract is in place.

What is a live integration?

A live integration is a direct connection to a sales channel. When a traveler is looking at your products on an online travel agencies' (OTAs') website, such as FarCloserTravel, FarCloserTravel will display availability directly from your Bókun account. When a booking is created on their website, the booking information will be sent to your Bókun account, updating the availability of all your connected channels automatically.

How do I get the integration process started?

  • Send a contract proposal to FarCloserTravel on the Bókun marketplace. Before sending the proposal make sure you have set up contract terms with the commission you would like to offer, as well as selecting the correct products.
  • FarCloser Travel will connect with you to make sure that their platform is a good fit for your type of services and that you have the products they are looking for.
  • FarCloser Travel will contact you about the next step.
