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 Manawa, Manawa 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 Manawa 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.
  • Manawa will accept the proposal, if you fulfill their criteria and have the products they are looking for. Manawa will contact you with the next steps.

✴️Note: There might be additional steps necessary depending on the OTA.
