Where does Zumata get its inventory?
Zumata’s inventory comes from over sixty 3rd party suppliers. These suppliers are bedbanks, tour operators, DMCs, and vacation rental providers. The benefit is that many of their supply partners are specialists in a particular region. These are players you are unlikely to connect with, but they have excellent rates in their regions due to the volumes they drive.
What is included in the Zumata inventory?
Zumata’s inventory is a mixture of hotels, motels, apartments, condos, and other vacation rental properties. The inventory comes complete with supporting content such as images, descriptions, property details, and is available in all languages that DHISCO supports.
What sort of static content is available to support the Zumata inventory?
Many elements of static data and supporting information are available. This includes, but is not limited to: property name, address, phone number, nearest airport, amenity information, property descriptions, images, and all languages DHISCO supports.
What types of rates are available?
Zumata also offers net or commissionable rates. Zumata has access to stand-alone rates, package rates, mobile rates, and closed user group/opaque rates. Some of these will require additional approval from the underlying supplier, but they can all be accessed via the same connection you already have in place with DHISCO.
Are rates net or commissionable?
Both options are available.
Are rates pre-paid or post-paid?
At the moment, all rates are pre-paid.
If I have existing 3rd party inventory, can I route this through the DHISCO API?
Yes. Zumata can pass through your DHISCO connection both your existing contracted rates as well as Zumata contracted rates. With the help of Zumata, you can offload the heavy resource burden of mapping, deduplication, price comparisons, content updating, and even new supplier connectivity.
