Handling Hibernation - Cancelling Activities
Customer Success Manager, David Haynes, speaks to how cancelling your activities rather then altering the start date with your activity set-up is your best approach for your online bookings and your OTA (Online Travel Agent Relationships).
Our recommended approach for a temporary shutdown / business hibernation is to cancel activities for a period of time when your business is expected to be non-operational, instead of changing activity start & end dates.
This will keep your products live with connected resellers, help maintain your reseller rankings, and ensure your content and product are visible to the public - just not available and bookable at this time. Resellers will continue to process booking cancellations via API as needed, without manual work from your team.

Handling all those refunds is a large task and a financial burden on your finances.
