Travelocity Global Introduces Travelocity Connect Developers Portal

Travelocity Global has launched the Travelocity Connect Developers Portal, a state-of-the art platform that enables developers and system providers in the hospitality industry to easily and quickly scale hotel supplier business with Travelocity, Lastminute.com, and ZUJI. By powering hotel listings and bookings with realtime data delivered through the Travelocity Connect APIs, hotels and developers can enhance the buying experience they deliver customers on Travelocity’s online properties.

“The Travelocity Connect Developers Portal builds upon our legacy of being the supplier friendly online travel company, making it easy for hotels to connect to us seamlessly,” said Noreen Henry, senior vice president, global partner services, Travelocity. “The portal minimizes costs, errors and delays and will help ensure that our hotel partners are always in sync with us, giving our mutual customers a hassle-free experience. Hotels not using Travelocity Connect are missing opportunities to sell their properties on our sites.”

The Travelocity Connect Developers Portal was developed in collaboration with Mashery, the global leader in API management technology and services. The portal includes Mashery-made tools that help developers quickly take advantage of the unique opportunity to integrate complex real-time property and booking data with Travelocity Connect, and sell to customers with a new level of accuracy and ease.

Travelocity's secure portal for developers provides a comprehensive API toolkit for Travelocity Connect's enrolled partner developers. Developers approved by Travelocity Connect can take advantage of the tools to learn about, and engage with, the APIs and the Travelocity Connect developer community.

Developers can now use the Travelocity Connect API sandbox to test formatting and messages in the full API environment for APIs, including Hotel Direct Update (availability, rates and inventory), Hotel Information, Hotel Booking Retrieve, Hotel Booking Confirmation, Hotel Inventory Verification and Hotel Booking Delivery.

The API sandbox also allows developers to build their own API requests according to specifications for delivery of data to Travelocity and receipt of bookings. The portal also provides the developer community with interactive forums, where they can share ideas, code samples, and learn from other developers how to best use the API to streamline data updates and management in the Travelocity system.

“Travelocity is an example of a data-driven business that is using APIs to give its partners a distinct advantage in a competitive environment,” said Oren Michels, co-founder and CEO of Mashery. “Hotels leveraging Travelocity Connect’s APIs can better promote their current available properties to customers with more detail and accuracy.”
