Expedia / Travelocity web services?

I have project that needs to look up flight information, hotel
information, etc. Any idea where I can find some web services to do
this, or any kind of solution to implement into rails?

Thanks for your help.

As far as I know, Sabre is the system almost everyone uses, and I
haven’t heard of them allowing anyone to create a web api just anyone
could access. If you do find one please post it as I would be
interested.

I just need upcoming flights, hotel information etc w/ prices.

I don’t see why they wouldn’t want to dispurse this information since it
has to be purchased through them.

Do you have any more information on Sabre and what not or any other
solution?

thanks for your help.

Some of the travel resellers have Web APIs…

I’m trying to remember which ones… Travelocity might be one…
Hotels.com
another.

They have strict rules on how they can be used though - no price
comparisons
with other tools in most cases.

hi

i dont know about hotel information but about flight info, i know there
is
no web services API avalaible

the companies who provide this kind of information have made deals with
airlines and keep the data. it s the kind of business where no new
startups
can enter - some kind of cartel. they make a living by selling data to
travel agencies and websites.

If there is any way you could find this out that would be really nice.
This is a very important project and I could use any information I could
get.

Thank you for everyone’s help, any more help is greatly appreciated.

Travelocity is the best for online flight bookings I have been using it for a while and I never have any issue with it. it is a reputable online booking agent and cheaper than any other. if there is any sudden change in your plans include schedule changes from the airline Travelocity can deal with it. become the Travelocity and get personalized deals and offers. Travelocity allows you to sort flight search results by the number of stops, airline, price, and departure or arrival time. you can pen down your opinion or doubts to them via Travelocity email.
