In this example we are again going via the connector 'Protea'. Further, we are only interested in rates that are known as L01 and L02 in that system, as the LimitToList property is set to Y. Any other rates returned by the External Supplier System will be ignored.
The L01 rate requires a credit card guarantee and is returned as a Gross rate from the External Supplier System, as described in the RatePlanDetails section. Its value will have 20% calculated and subtracted to arrive at a cost price. For example:

Gross Price $120.00
Less 20% Commission$24.00
Cost Price $96.00

The L02 rate is a standard Net rate that is to be guaranteed by the supply of an IATA number.

Example 4

Settings can be applied to all rate plan codes by not specifying a code in the RatePlanDetails definition.

...

</RatePlanCode>

<RatePlanCode Code=”L01”>"L01">

<Commission>20</Commission>

<Guarantee>C</Guarantee>

</RatePlanCode>

<RatePlanDetails></RatePlanDetails>

</External>


In this example we will display and book any rate plan code provided by the External Supplier System and all codes except L01 will be processed on a nett basis with an IATA guarantee. L01 will be processed on a gross basis with a credit card guarantee and 20% commission. 

...

<LimitToList>Y</LimitToList>

<RatePlanCode Code=”L01”>"L01">

<PriceCodes>

<PriceCode>Z1</PriceCode>

...

</RatePlanCode>

<RatePlanCode Code=”L02”"L02"/>

<RatePlanDetails></RatePlanDetails>

</External>

In this example we are again going via the connector 'Protea' but this time to the supplier known as 'CACA' in the External Supplier System. Further, we are only interested in rates that are known as L01 and L02 in that system, as the LimitToList property is set to 'Y'.
The Rate Plan Code L01 is, however, only available to an agent who has either price code 'Z1' or 'Z2' attached to them. Rate Plan Code L02 is available to any agent as it has no Price Code limitations defined.

Example 6

Some External Supplier Systems will accept a room/pax configuration that does not match the value that they scroll/book. The expectation is that the traveller will be advised of this and expected to pay the difference direct to the hotel when travelling. Obviously in a wholesaler/tour operator environment this is not acceptable.
Mapping data will permit the specification of the maximum quantities to be scrolled/booked as follows: 

...

<LimitToList>Y</LimitToList>

<RatePlanCode Code=”A01”>"A01">

</RatePlanCode>

<RatePlanCode Code=”A02”>"A02">

</RatePlanCode>

<RatePlanDetails></RatePlanDetails>

</External>

 This is a similar example to the previous one, but in addition is specifying that for this option we are only interested in Rate Plan Codes A01 and A02.
