We are an OTA startup looking for an API that allows us to directly negotiate rates/inclusions with a hotel to provide unique offerings. BedBanks don't seem to be the way, and we are getting turned away from Channel Managers/Direct Connects.  If we elected to go the Amadeus Self Service API, can we integrate in a way that our negotiated rate/package with the Hotel shows up on our OTA?  If not, what are your suggestions?

Hello,

I am new using GDSs and I am trying to get response to the FlightOrder Management API from Amadues

https://test.api.amadeus.com/v1/booking/flight-orders/RE88ST

I get a NOT FOUND response.

My question is: It is because such information requires extra permissions from the airline?

I am investigating wich GDS would suit better. Your article (https://www.altexsoft.com/blog/travelport-vs-amadeus-vs-sabre-gds/) is great!!!

Best Regards,

Hi, I've learned so much reading your articles, thank you!

I want to make a metasearch site for hotels, like Tripadvisor or Trivago. What is the best way to get that data?

All of the API's I'm finding are intended for Hotels to send data, not for people to request data. Are there API's for each OTA and also for each direct booking site?

Is there anyone who aggregates all of that data and provides it via API? That would certainly make things much easier...

Another question:

Is it possible to get 'logged in' rates for places like hotels.com? They have 'Secret Prices' that you have to be logged in to see. I'd like to have this data if possible but I can't find a way to get it via API.

Thanks!

I'm looking for an API that will give me access to hotel information.
I need the hotel's name, address (ideally GPS coordinates as well) and chain affiliation (IHG, Hilton, independent etc.).
I think Kayak has that information available, but I don't want to support booking. I only want to visualize some information about the hotels.
Can you recommend an API?

Hi!

I have a question in regards to the Payment Processing models or actual setups that are used by OTAs. I am not talking about Booking.com or Expedia, it's mostly a question of how new and smaller OTAs set up their payment procedures.
For example, when a customer books a trip on the "Random Travel" website, the customer's credit card gets charged by the travel agency and then the payment goes to the actual property or an airline, right?

What are the other options?
And what payment processors can be used by the OTA to charge their customers?

For example, Stripe charges 2.9%+ 0.30c for every transaction, and +1% for every international transaction. This is a lot of money for small OTAs, since the commission is also shared with the Host agency. So if we take an example of a $100 hotel booking, the commission is 10%, in most cases, which is $10. Will say Host agency takes 30% of the commission, that's $3. Stripe takes 2.9% of the entire amount paid, which is another $3.
In the end of the day, the agency is left with $3-4 commission.

So my question is: what are the ways to set up an efficient payment process and what could be the options?

Sorry for the long question. It's really something I am trying to understand.

I read their doc and all it says is that Flight Create Orders API creates a PNR on the airline’s reservation system. You’ll receive payment from the customer and then pay the airline.Finally, a ticket is issued once payment is received and the reservation has been logged.

I have contacted with one of consolidator, but the overall flow is still unclear staring after Flight Create Orders API returns successfully. Could anyone elaborate on the process (a step by step break down on what we should do till final booking is made)?

Thank you.

Hi folks, Great site - there's so much quality info up here. I am hoping someone could explain how to begin partnering with OTAs as a new entrant to the traveltech space. I note a general unwillingness of large OTAs to offer affiliate accounts (or access to their APIs) to newcomers without an existing user base. I might understand this in the case of bloggers. However, when building an app that relies on access to availability and pricing data, how can one get started in this area? Is it generally better to become a travel agent instead of an affiliate? Thanks for sharing any insights.
