Parking Top Tips

We have put together these top tips, which detail how to optimise your use of our API for providing parking to your customers.

Merging Product Library data into availability response

To save sending a separate https request for information from the Product Library, you can specify a comma-separated list of values to pull this information back with the availability request.

Just specify a parameter named fields and include the Product Library field names there.

For example:

&fields=field_a,field_b,field_c

Alternatively, the method for querying the product library as a separate request is outlined here.

Advance purchase

There is a field in the Product Library for car parks, named advance_purchase. Advance purchase products are non-refundable and non-cancellable. As a result, the Cancellation Waiver must not be sold to customers purchasing a product with advance_purchase set to 1.

Request flags

The request flags brought back from availability searches indicate the fields required in the booking by the car park. You must retrieve this information from the customer at the time of booking.

There are occasions where your booking will go through without sending this information but can fail later when importing the bookings to car parks. This causes us considerable administrative difficulties and may result in your customer’s booking being cancelled without notice.

Good to go meet and greet

New product types which are amendable by dates and times but cannot be cancelled. The response will return CanAmendCantCancel set to either 1 or 0.
