Contracts and Allotment

What is an allotment?

An allotment is a contract between a business customer and an accommodation facility whereby a number of rooms is reserved for sale to the business customer and is characterized by specific limitations in terms of time and usage.


Business customers, such as tour operators, companies and agencies purchase rooms in a specific time period and resell them to partners and end customers.

Every allotment has an expiry date, called “release”, that represents the deadline by which the business customer is granted the right to resell these rooms.


If the agency is not able to sell all the rooms given in allotment before this date, the agency will have to return all unsold rooms to the manager of the accommodation facility that will be able to reuse them as he prefers.
