Where can I get the Hotel Confirmation Number (HCN)?

Retrieving your Hotel Confirmation Number (HCN)/Hotel Reference Booking (HRB) has never been easier!

What information does the HCN return?💡

Once a booking has been successfully confirmed in TravelgateX you may retrieve 2 different locators from its logs:

  1. The Buyer's locator (client reference).
  2. The Seller's locator (provider reference).

The Seller may also provide a third type of locator, issued by the hotel when it confirms the booking. This is known as the Hotel Confirmation Number (HCN) or Hotel Reference Booking (HRB).

Please note we are only able to provide this code if the Seller returns it in their response, in which case it will be returned in BookRS and BookingQueryRS (Reservation and ReservationRead/List methods):
