Detailed description

HotelListType, DescriptiveInfoType, GeographicDestinationTreeType, AvailDestinationTreeType and RoomListType:

These parameters are XMLTravelgate’s internal parameters. They define the type of download each method has for each supplier. If the parameter value is set as online, the method runs a direct call to the supplier’s system because the method takes less than 4 minutes. Any other value will signify that the process takes more than 4 minutes, which means we have to cache the information in our BBDD (the methods with this feature are updated every week).

The following tags are set as FALSE by default: (This is either because the supplier doesn’t support it or because is has not been updated yet)
