Confirmation number also facilitates reconciliation between Expedia and the hospitality for billing and tracing needs. Booking Confirmation (BC) Application Programming Language (API) is the procedure that EQC partner must follow to make the confirmation number of the accommodation available to Expedia for all reservations requested via the BR interfaces. Non-confirmed reservations will be returned by e-mail or facsimile at the end of the booking period.
Use the Booking Confirmation API to validate electronic requests (reservations, changes, and cancellations). Acknowledgement numbers must be entered before the booking expires. Otherwise the booking will be made by e-mail or facsimile. Expedia's booking process policy is built around the booking window: If you arrive the same night (based on the middle of the night in the hotels time zone ): your booking expires 30 min after it has been made by the client.
Next arrivals (all reservations made between 12:00 and 23:59:59 the night before your check-in, depending on the time zone of the hotel): reservations are forfeited 60 min after they have been made by the client. If the booking is made within a longer period, the booking expires 24 hrs after its completion by the client. Confirmation numbers can be up to 8 working nights after the guest's date of travel for reservations already made.

Detailled explanation of an errormessage. In order to successfully refresh a booking with a confirmation number, the following EQC validation is used for each confirmation sent in the BC-RQ message: Confirmation number is more current than any available confirmation number for the booking. If the EQC party is sending two BC queries for the same posting, for example, EQC checks the time stamp contained in the notification and ensures that the most current one is used.
You can change the booking in the confirmation to reflect the new, changed or canceled state. Please be aware that if a client changes a booking before Expedia transmits the booking information to the EQC party in a booking request notification, the confirmation booking method should still be marked "Book", as the first shipment of a booking to the EQC party is always new.
