Faircity Hotels prides itself on maintaining extremely high standards throughout our properties in our provision of comfortable, safe, friendly and efficient service and a product geared towards the modern-day business and leisure guests available at cost effective prices.
During 2012 we have invested in a new distribution platform to streamline our rate loading and ensure rate and availability parity across all our channels with seamless connectivity to all four GDS's.
Not only are our properties located in key business destinations but most have state of the art meeting facilities and business centres as well as elegant restaurants perfect for relaxing or carrying on meetings into the evening. Our Johannesburg CBD Property, Faircity Mapungubwe and Faircity Grosvenor Gardens in Hatfield consist of self-catering accommodation- ideal for long stay guests looking for a home from home as well as an overnight guest on a business trip.

Sometimes travel agents are unable to find hotels in the GDS. The actual messages displayed to indicate this can differ - in Sabre it can be displayed as "Please Return Alternate Dates"; in Amadeus the property shows as closed; in Galileo and Worldspan the message reads " Hotel Not Available".
In all instances this indicates that the hotel does not have any availability for the dates that you have selected. It is not a problem with the system or connectivity or rate loading, it is simply the case that the hotel is full for the selected dates and/or room types/rates. In this situation please select alternative dates.
Following a cutover to a new chain code there are several reasons why rates may not be displayed. The most common reason is that in Sabre the HST Table needs to be refreshed by the IT department of the agency. In 95% of cases this will resolve the problem. There are however also instances of PCC codes not being loaded or being loaded incorrectly. In this situation our GDS Helpdesk will help resolve the situation immediately. Please e-mail email@example.com to highlight the problem to our team and we will work on rectifying this asap.
During a cutover to a new chain code the link between the CRS/Switch/GDS goes down temporarily. This may only be for 15 minutes but during this time travel agents may receive the message "Pending Unconfirmed Segment" on the GDS. Travel agents are still able to book offline using the back up database during this time but may be required to wait for final confirmation of bookings. The GDS databases are updated frequently, depending on the property/chain. For Galileo, the database is backed up every 24 hours therefore the information in the database is very current. If however travel agents prefer to check live availability please do not hesitate to contact any of our reservation offices, a list of all numbers are under the "How to book via Voice" section of this site.
In most cases, the rate policies set by the hotel restrict the modification of some rates for example when deposits are involved. Some GDS's will not allow you to "modify" as a result but you may still be able to "cancel and rebook" in the GDS. Please check the policies attached to the rate to find out whether this may be possible.
If you have any problems please contact our GDS helpdesk on firstname.lastname@example.org
To help us resolve your issues as quickly as possible please give us the following information:
- The name of the GDS that you use
- Your Agency IATA no. (for security)
- The PCC Code for rate access/viewership
- The Rate Schedule
Yes, the chain code is simply an identifier in the GDS. Our hotels can still be found in the GDS if you search by property name, by brand, by location, by facilities, by star grading and all of the other usual ways in which you may search for properties.
