Note:  Price over API may not be supported by all systems and products. Please contact your connectivity provider for assistance with this feature.


GetYourGuide is introducing Price over API feature. This feature enables automatic updates of your retail prices based on data from your reservation system, eliminating the need for manual price updates, and minimizing booking discrepancies. GetYourGuide will pull pricing information the same way we update availability if your system supports this functionality with GetYourGuide and it is enabled for your products.

This is an optional feature and can be enabled on the tour option level for options of your choice. Please review below information before you proceed with enabling Price over API. Currently, not all product configurations are supported by this feature.



Price Update Frequency & Dynamic Pricing

Similarly to availability, pricing information is pulled from your reservation system on a pre-defined schedule and is not updated in real time. GetYourGuide's current default frequency of updates for most systems is as follows (it may vary based on different factors, such as errors or booking volume): 

  • Every 8 days we fetch availability (and prices) for the next 365 days
  • Every 4 days we fetch availability (and prices) for the next 90 days
  • Every 1 day we fetch availability (and prices) for the next 30 days
  • Every 4 hours we fetch availability (and prices) for the next 7 days

Dynamic pricing with very frequent, automatic price changes based on demand, capacity or other factors may not supported at this time.


Important Notes

  • Most ticket categories, including Adult, Child, Youth, Infant, Senior, Student, EU Citizen, Military, EU Citizen, Student are supported. Group products, Add-ons, Tiered (Scaled) Pricing are not supported. 
  • Price over API is configured to accept retail rates only. Retail prices shared by your reservation system must be inclusive of taxes and fees. 
  • You must have pricing for all available time slots in the next 365 days in your reservation system. If there is a time slot with available vacancies no price assigned, the slot will not be made bookable on GetYourGuide.
  • Prices provided by your reservation system must be in the same currency as the currency you have selected in GetYourGuide Supplier Administration. 
  • The price received over API  will override any price manually configured in  GetYourGuide Supplier Administration.
