Step 2 - Myallocator Connection Request

Once you have an account with them, follow the article below to know how you can generate your special credentials

How to Generate Credentials to Connect with Decolar.

Note: This special login is separate from your normal Decolar extranet credentials.

Per Decolar as of March 7, 2016

Prior to a property connecting Decolar to myallocator, Decolar must migrate them 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 account executive to be considered. 

The connection can only be made once the Decolar account executive confirms the property has been switched to the new system.
