AirHost integrated with Japan's online travel reservations platform “Rakuten Travel” to help AirHost users expand sales channels to reach more domestic audiences.
And together with the contactless check-in functions, AirHost helps hotels streamline their operations and create better hospitality service to guests by providing self-check-in.
With the API integration, the room inventory, room rate, and accommodation availability can be automatically synchronized from AirHost to Rakuten Travel in real-time so that you can manage all your channels just in one place.
All booking information can be automatically synchronized from Rakuten Travel to AirHost and then AirHost updates the availability to other OTAs in real-time so that can avoid double bookings automatically.
You can set up a special price and discount by using the pricing tier function. Also, you can receive and reply guest messages from Rakuten Travel in AirHost as well.
The integration of AirHost and Rakuten Travel can help you maximize revenue and reach out to more inbound guests globally.
