To help you with the connection process with sales channels, it is important that you know which policy will be adopted by each channel at the moment the guest makes the reservation.
One of the possible models is the Instant Reservation. This means that the guest will be able to book directly through the channel, without the need to contact the host to validate or approve the reservation.
See below the sales channels that support Instant Reservation:
