Some results that are returned from availability on the API will be what we call bundles, these consist of a main product, such as a hotel, bundled together with an additional supplement, like a dinner.
Bundles are currently only available on hotel searches.

The product code of the supplement will also be returned in the booking response which can be used to retrieve product specific content in the product library request that can be displayed on booking confirmations. When creating confirmation emails be sure to highlight that the supplement has been added as a part of this booking.
A bundle booking can be amended or cancelled following the same rules as a general product. The supplement has a
Canx field in the booking response that will define if that particular add-on can be cancelled as part of the booking. It is not currently possible to amend the quantity of the supplement or remove it from the booking using the API.
