  • Pending Confirmation / On Request
    • Reservation is pending with the provider (reservation status with provider is “on request”. Provider reference is showing on the booking) OR
    • Reservation is not not confirmed with the provider (Provider reference missing on the booking)
    • E-mail notifications: Automated email is sent to the client for “on request” pending reservation. Once the status is updated, the automated email should be sent to the client.
  • Rejected – reservation is showing as rejected for the client. Rejected status can be updated automatically once provider amends the status on their website OR reservation status can be updated manually by customer service staff. E-mail notifications: Automated email is sent to the client notifying agent about rejected reservation status.
