This page describes the Offer type.

This type is derived from, which means that any of this type's properties within may also be used. Note however the properties on this page must be used in preference if a relevant property is available.


Optional properties

PropertyExpected TypeDescription


Must always be present and set to "@type": "Offer"


A unique URI-based identifier for the record.

@id properties are used as identifiers for compatibility with JSON-LD. The value of such a property must always be an absolute URI that provides a stable globally unique identifier for the resource, as described in RFC3986.

The primary purpose of the URI format in this context is to provide natural namespacing for the identifier. Hence, the URI itself may not resolve to a valid endpoint, but must use a domain name controlled by the resource owner (the organisation responsible for the OpenActive open data feed).


"@id": ""


Array of PaymentMethod

Indicates the offline payment methods accepted by this provider.


"acceptedPaymentMethod": [ "", "" ]


DEPRECATED: Use ageRestriction instead of ageRange within the Offer for cases where the Offer is age restricted.

Indicates that an Offer is only applicable to a specific age range.


Indicates that an Offer can only be purchased by participants within a specific age range. Specified as a QuantitativeValue with minValue and maxValue properties. This must be displayed prominently to the user when selecting an Offer or before booking.


"ageRestriction": { "@type": "QuantitativeValue", "minValue": 15, "maxValue": 60 }

Array of Concept

Offers in open data can be marked as requiring an entitlement type via eligibleEntitlementType. The same Offer may be applicable to multiple entitlement types, and the Customer must have at least one matching entitlement type to qualify for the Offer.

Note that this property is in EARLY RELEASE AND IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE, as the Customer Accounts proposal evolves.

Beta Extension properties

These properties are defined in the OpenActive Beta Extension.

Publishers should not assume that properties in the beta namespace will either be added to the core specification or be included in the namespace over the long term.
