Bokun offers a live integration with other OTAs' such as GetYourGuide. Live integration means that when a customer is looking at your products on an OTA's website, it will be displaying availability directly from your Bokun account.
When a booking is created on their website, it will be delivered straight into your Bokun account, updating the availability of all your connected channels at the same time.
