About Traveltech

It’s overwhelming how much technology transforms the way we travel. Mobile check-ins increase customer satisfaction tenfold, content from travel brands helps travelers make a final decision about destinations, and the whole 83 percent of millennials don’t bother about personal data sharing as long as it gives them the desired personalization. AR tours, data-driven flight shopping, Alexa in hotel rooms – this is just the tip of the TravelTech iceberg. Here, on Techtalks, you can discover new opportunities for your travel business, ask about the integration of certain technology, and of course – help others by sharing your experiences and reviews.

Hello, 

There are several options you can try.

1. The hard way is to contact Amadeus directly and ask whether they can help you partner with a flight consolidator and get an Enterprise partnership. Consolidators do have IATA ID and can ticket your flights via Amadeus. According to our experience, Amadeus support Middle East bookings for their Enterprise partners. If you manage to negotiate an Enterprise partnership, you can get API access. This may not work, because the Enterprise option is designed for businesses having IATA ID. But you may still try.

2. A simpler way is to contact consolidators directly. They have booking APIs and can ticket your flights. We had a positive experience with Mondee, so try contacting them. If Mondee doesn’t work, check other consolidators. Here’s our article with several consolidator options to consider. 

3. You may also check Travelfusion. They must have ticketing covered and you don’t necessarily need IATA ID. But you should check the Middle East coverage with them.

Let me know if that helps!

Hello Everyone,

I am planning to learn Salesforce Administration Certification, but I can't find the best modules for great learning.

I just know that Salesforce plays an enormous part in various businesses, thus investing in certified administrators can become a successful career platform for several applicants. 

Is there anyone help me to solve this problem?

Thanks,

Pankaj

I’m sorry for the slow response. If you have IATA ID, you can try negotiating the Amadeus Enterprise partnership. It has wider API support across regions.

If you don’t, try contacting consolidators. We had a positive experience with Mondee. If Mondee doesn’t work, check other consolidators. Here’s our article with several consolidator options to consider. You may also check Travelfusion. They must have ticketing covered and you don’t necessarily need IATA ID.

Hello,

Unfortunately, we haven’t heard of such a booking engine available on the market. Normally, you implement that filtering by price within your internal business logic. Similarly, you can hide prices on your side. 

 

To do that you must have API integration with your inventory suppliers and a booking engine that you can customize, either internal or white-label, given that a provider can help with customization. Let us know if you need further consultation.

Hi Christian!

Can you share the code that creates difficulties? You can publish it on jsfiddle.net or create a gist on github.com and share a link here.

The four largest GDSs are: Amadeus, Sabre, Travelport (which is the parent company of Apollo/Galileo and Worldspan). Literally hundreds of airlines can be logged into a single GDS system, to which thousands upon thousands of travel agents globally have access.

Hi there,

Duffel.com is an API aggregator for flights distribution. It has access to offers from around 30 airlines with NDC integrations available and a lot more air inventory sourced from Travelport GDS. We haven’t received hands on experience with their API just yet, but we have explored it a bit. As of right now, it seems they have a fairly decent API that solves a lot of integration challenges common for GDS integrations 
 

They also have some contracts with carriers, so you can use Duffel credentials to access these deals in the GDS inventory.  
 

All in all, they seem to be worth a try. But as I said, we don’t have a hands on experience, so please share your thoughts!

Hi there,

One of the places you could go is Byhours. They offer Sabre-based integration and have their platform for travel agents.

Also, Dayuse has a booking platform for online travel agencies. Try contacting them directly. We aren't sure they have an API, but worth a try.

Is there a solid SaaS Car Rental system that has a quality API which allows for building your own booking and checkin flows?  We've looked at a number of options.  Most seem like custom pro-serve implementations to startup up and they seem to have little to no API.

  • Stuba API

  • Travellanda API
  • BedsonlineAPI
  • DOTW API
  • GTA API
  • lobal API
  • JacTravel API
  • Mikki API
  • Triton API
  • bookohotel API

Hi Vanika,

As of today there are no car rental APIs in the Self-Service framework. For this you will need to use Enterprise.

Kind regards,
