Opaque Lodging

Opaque Lodging

Opaque Lodging is a last-minute deal discounting and availability tool for vendors in which online users are shown the pricing but not the location or supplier of a product during an online search. The location is revealed to the customer after they have completed the reservation. Customers receive the location in their online and email reservation confirmation.

Note: The product description and product amenities now appear to customers on Opaque products. To prevent a product description from revealing the location, if you have editing permission, you can change the default supplier description. If you don't have editing permission, you can have Inntopia enable the Reseller Content Management tool to create customized product descriptions on an individual basis.

Because opaque lodging prices are usually set to provide significant discounts, package discounts cannot be applied to opaque lodging products.

If a CRS is using the Unit Rating System, the ratings appear for opaque lodging products on search results. Inntopia recommends using Unit Ratings with opaque lodging as a means of allowing customers to understand the quality rating of the product they are purchasing.
