  • Ensure that only one concurrent ARI request sent for a particular property.
  • Ensure retry strategy for messages in case of failures.
  • Ensure partner timeout higher than the lastminute.com timeout which is currently set at 60 seconds (e.g., 61 seconds).
  • Ensure the partner connection for the new services is certified (Please refer to “Get Certified” in the Resources section)
  • Default configuration for new connection is 5 concurrent messages and 50000 messages per day.  Please contact partnerconnect@lastminute.com for any overrides.
