Per Decolar as of March 7, 2016

"Prior to a property connecting Decolar to myallocator, Decolar must migrate properties from their current system to a new system. Currently, Decolar is training Market Managers to instruct hotels of this requirement.

For any hotel that wants to work with myallocator, the first step is to tell their Despegar Market Managers to be considered. 

The connection can only be made once the Decolar Market Managers confirms the property has been switched to the new system."
