Yes, we provide XML APIs to search and book hotels, flights and cars.
First you need to become one of our partners through our sign up form in the Affiliate Center, then submit an application for XML access from within the XML Documentation site. We’ll review your application and website for eligibility, work with you on the proper contracts if needed, and notify you of your status once your access is set.
With XML you are able to access our data system, retrieve the content requested and display it to your own webpages dynamically. This gives you the benefit of organizing and stylizing our content in the manner that suits your business instead of linking to our customized template pages. Although EAN's private labeling system gives you flexibility and highly customized branding, the use of XML will allow you full design control and branding of this content.
- Greater degree of control over design, content and tracking of your website
- Better for SEO, especially when combined with your own unique content
- Requires more development resources and expertise to implement and maintain
- You become responsible for the programming, logic, debugging and monitoring of your site and you will not be able to leverage the development work our team invests in optimizing the template site
We find a good starting point is to build the shopping pages using XML abd then direct your customers to our private label template once they are ready to transact. This provides the flexibility to optimise the design of your site, particularly for search engine marketing, and leverage our secure booking pages to convert the transaction.
