Xotelia is closing down, and is being replaced by eviivo
By the end of 2019 the Xotelia channel manager will no longer be operational. It will be replaced by eviivo suite or connect. eviivo is no longer accepting any Xotelia subscription renewal.
If your subscription to Xotelia expires in 2019 you will not be able to renew it; you will need to subscribe to the newest release eviivo connect, or you may upgrade to eviivo suite. As a result, Xotelia connections to online travel sites like Booking.com, Airbnb, Expedia etc. will be paused permanently and prices & availabilities will no longer be synchronised via the Xotelia channel manager, now replaced by our more recent version eviivo connect.
Please contact us to find out how you may seamlessly move to eviivo connect.
In 2017 eviivo acquired Xotelia. Since then, the teams have been working hard to prepare your seamless migration to its successor release: eviivo connect.

- Access to an award-winning diary to manage your reservations.
