Xola and Expedia have a working integration that allows your customer to create a booking from Expedia's website and automatically push that booking and its relevant information into your Xola account. This is a great way to increase revenue by selling your experiences on a major distribution channel while still viewing the reservations and reflecting accurate availability within Xola.

To set this up, you will need an Expedia account, which you can sign up for here: https://join.localexpertpartnercentral.com/

After your Expedia account is up and running, you can have it integrate it with your Xola account by following these steps:

  1. Locate Expedia in the Xola App Store and select it.
  2. Click INSTALL and agree to the terms of service.Screen_Shot_2018-09-24_at_3.06.00_PM.png
  3. Click Visit Settings Page or navigate to Settings > Apps > Expedia > Configure and select which Experiences you would like to allow Expedia access to. Selecting Experiences from this page allows Expedia to look at the selected Experience's availability. Your Xola and Expedia accounts will still have to be mapped to each other with the help of Expedia's API team.
  4. Once you have selected the Experiences you want to integrate with Expedia, reach out to your Expedia Destination Manager to begin the mapping process.  

Note: It is important to note that all Expedia reservations are auto-accepted in your Xola account regardless of any Per Outing Minimums you may have set in Xola.
