Testing Notes

Listed below are some limitations that may be encountered when testing on the staging/demo environment; none of these limitations occur on our production environment.

Price And Allotment Data 

All price and allotment data on the staging/demo server is dummy data and does not reflect the data that we return on our production servers.

Bookings For More Than 13 Nights

Bookings for available items for more than 13 nights will confirm with a delay of several minutes; these delays are NOT occurring on our production environment.

Bookings With Cots

Bookings with infant cots will confirm with a delay of several minutes; these delays are NOT occurring on our production environment.

Bookings With Coded Remarks

Bookings with coded remarks should auto-confirm immediately, providing allotment is available for the requested property. Currently these bookings return occasionally with status CP (Pending Confirmation) and do not move into confirmed status without manual intervention by GTA staff; this behaviour is NOT occurring on our production environment.

Dynamic Inventory

Unfortunately, none of our dynamic inventory providers have as yet provided us with a connection for their staging environment that is available at all times and returns properties for your testing and therefore it is currently not possible to test this on our staging/demo environment either. As we have gone to great length to integrate our third-party suppliers seamlessly into our own inventory this should not impact your testing in any way.

System Performance

Please refrain from carrying out performance testing on the staging/demo environment. This environment has limited hardware and will therefore not give you any relevant information about the performance you can expect on our production systems.
