I think it depends on the business you travel domestically or internationally. You can look up online booking platforms on the Internet. Or you can try,, Kayak,, TripAdvisor, and so on. I think it might be useful to you. Besides, you can play smash karts on a smartphone.

Hello there!

AeroCRS has a Developers Hub that contains all the guides and documentation you might need to build an API connection with them. They have APIs available both on JSON and on XML.

To get access to their APIs, you have to choose one of the integration options and sign up with AeroCRS (that includes submitting the form and signing a full contract and a distribution contract).

Currently, AeroCRS has 5 integration options for airlines, their affiliates, travel agencies, and aggregators:

  • Website Integration -- to add the AeroCRS booking widget and redirect customers to the airline website for booking;
  • Advanced integration -- to develop your own search engine and redirect customers to the airline website for purchase;
  • Availability and Fares -- to retrieve information on flights availability and fares and redirect customers to the airline website for booking;
  • Full Booking Process -- to implement a complete booking flow, including payment and ticketing (agreements with every airline are required);
  • AeroCRS Network --  to implement a full booking flow after signing one agreement with AeroCRS instead of separate agreements with every airline.

For all types of integrations the pricing is the same: it's free if you do up to 400k requests per month, anything above that is charged $0.001 USD per request. Plus, you pay $0.70 USD per segment booked.

For more information, you can also visit their Knowledge base.

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.

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,

Hi there,
It’s not unusual for PMS providers to separate their Revenue Management module from the base software. With providers such as Protel and eZee Absolute, you will have to either pay extra for RM features, while others like Little Hotelier have simple tools for integrating with third-party revenue management software. Both of these options are normal in the industry and are not complicated to set up.
If you still require RM to be included in the base PMS package, consider these products:

  • OPERA 5 and OPERA Cloud have rate management functionality and flexible inventory control features out-of-the-box, plus numerous add-ons. Read more about Oracle’s proposition here.
  • Maestro PMS has an integrated dynamic rate and yield management module.
  • Hotelogix has dynamic pricing features and offers price recommendations.
  • IQware provides occupancy forecasts and calculates five levels of yield.

We have a more detailed overview of these and other PMSs in a separate article, so make sure to check it out. Hope it helps!

With the use of Channel Manager, simply when a guest makes a reservation on an online channel, it will automatically update the corresponding availability through other online booking channels that the hotel is distributing.
When you update room availability and rates on Channel Manager, it syncs with all the hotel distribution channels you're selling. 
Benefits of using Channel Manager
- Help you sell the most rooms through many distribution channels without worrying about overbooking
- Reduce the time of managing room availability and rates on many different channels by using only a single management point

Hi, Francisco!
Thank you for your question and feedback

First of all, let me draw your attention to the fact, that from API point of view your request is not correct. {flight-orderId} you can see in Amadeus API reference for bookings management is not a PNR. This is an order ID, you can find this order ID in /booking/flight-orders response when you create a booking using POST verb. This is Amadeus internal identificator that is required to get PNR information using self-service or enterprise REST API of Amadeus.

However your assumption about access issue is also correct. You can not retrieve any PNR from GDS without appropriate permissions and not always PNR that passengers see on their tickets are the same PNRs that can be retrieved from Amadeus. If several systems are involved in the booking process, (say, an OTA booked a flight via Sabre, but an airline operating the flight hosts its CRS in the Amadeus system), each of them generates its own booking reference to the file with flight details. 
So, to work with a certain flight order in Amadeus, you have to enter the record locator (6-character code) returned particularly by Amadeus  — not the PNR number you see on the e-ticket or in the booking confirmation e-mail.

Please contact us in case you have more questions, we will be happy to help you with GDS integration for your business

Concerning the first part of a question:
It’s a rule of thumb that in travel no data can be accessed for free. In most cases, you’ll need to contact either a booking platform, or a metasearch to access travel data API, if there is one. 
Which is currently a big question: few platforms offer such APIs. 
For example, Scyscanner has an API for sourcing pricing data dynamically. Scyscanner states that the API includes flight, hotel, and car rental data. So you may request the access by contacting them. 
There is also an unofficial API on KAYAK that also offers hotel information. 
So, to wrap it up, the best way is probably reaching out to other meta searches/hotel websites, to gain access to their APIs, source rates, and probably get the deeplinks.
A less recommended way is web scraping. You can monitor web pages to receive pricing and other information on booking using crawler programs. However, this isn’t reliable, as prices won’t be updated dynamically. Moreover, the use of a crawler may cause legal issues, as travel content providers forbid the use of such programs. 
As for the second part of the question. The secret prices, or “Private Rates” are usually visible for authorized partners of a given hotel. These rates are shipped via a paid subscription or membership in the private rate group. 
So for entering such a group, there is no other way then contacting the provider directly. 

But, pay attention that private rates are not allowed to be publicly exposed. So for the metasearch business model, it’s probably not possible to use them. They are primarily intended for bed banks and other types of distributors.

Hi Muhammed,
We don’t have a confirmation that any GDS provides bus booking capabilities. But you can look into software providers such as Travelopro or Etravos to integrate bus APIs. Alternatively, you can contact Sabre, Amadeus, or Travelport for more information.

Say I have two flight segments A to B and B to C with three hour overlay. A to B is by (say) United and B to C is by another Airline where United may or not may not have a codeshare.

Now I want to build a single ticket from A to C in an single PNR so that baggage is automatically transferred and missed connections will be handled.
