Amadeus Mini Rules


Amadeus Mini Rules provides a short and clear summary of the most important fare rules in a structured format for a given pricing. It is based on the rule restrictions that are effectively processed and validated for a given pricing context. This enables Amadeus customers (internal & external) to produce an easy-to-read text and create necessary translations so the traveler, the final end-user, can easily understand the restrictions related to the fare being purchased.
Key benefits
  • Easy customization and translation
    Amadeus Mini Rules data is returned in a structured message, which is a unique feature, via dedicated Amadeus Web Services. Amadeus' structured format allows for easy translation and text formatting whereas Travelport's Mini Rules are only available in English and are not customizable.
  • Available at/after pricing time
    Amadeus Mini Rules are available through Amadeus Web Services, Amadeus Offers (Offer Notice) and Amadeus e-Travel Management, soon to be followed by Amadeus Selling Platform, Amadeus e-Retail, API, cryptic and Amadeus Itinerary Notice. Travelport's Mini Rules are only available in cryptic. Amadeus Mini Rules data is available after itinerary pricing or re-pricing request (including ATC) and from a TST. Travelport's Mini Rules are at the display stage, where Amadeus Mini Rules are at/after pricing.
  • 100% up to date summary of the most important conditions applicable to the ticket
    Amadeus Mini Rules are dynamically processed from the exact restrictions that are applied during the pricing. This assures 100% up to date information, whereas Travelport's Mini Rules suffer from the same limitation as the standard FQN, ie that the FQN text is sent separately from the ATPCO airlines filing to GDSs.
