AI-based Japanese OTA ‘atta’ released an automatic booking change function, which changes a booked hotel package to cheaper one if the price is cut after completion of the initial booking. The OTA has applied for a patent for the function.
atta constantly monitors hotel package prices and hotel inventory. If prices of the relevant packages are cut after booked, atta gives notice to a booker. When a user check the box of ‘automatic booking change,’ atta automatically cancels the initial booking and change it to a cheaper package.
