API’s (Application Programming Interface) are tools for building software applications. They show software components on how they can interact. You are probably using it right now and aren’t even aware. Widespread adoption of smartphones and other handheld devices have made it a hot topic in our current market. Without API’s, the digital experience that consumers encounter today would be entirely impossible.
How do you make money on travel?
Travel agencies (offline and online) earn compensation through services fees paid by their travellers directly to them, through markups added to negotiated fares, and through commissions paid by suppliers for certain products or services. It is up to the supplier whether or not to pay a commission to your agency.
Metasearch engines and other consumer apps that don’t process bookings can make money through distribution in the form of cost-per-acquisition (CPA), cost-per-click (CPC), or revenue share agreements with suppliers and travel agencies. They also make money through advertising.
Developers of solutions used by travel companies typically make money through licensing or transaction fees paid out by the travel agency or corporation using their application.

The main types of travel APIs and how they work
In tech terminology, the synonym to this growing connectivity is API. Application programming interface allows for connecting data streams and functionalities between different software products. APIs work as control panels for developers to link different software components without dealing with source code. What does this mean for the travel industry? If you run a hotel business, you can let your customers rent a car straight from your website by integrating your room reservation engine with available local car rental providers. This may put a car-rental commission in your pocket or just make your customer’s life easier by eliminating time browsing the web to rent a car.
So, let’s talk about the most important types of APIs used to unify travel industry features and information. Warning, it’s going to be a long read, so you may hop to the sections that seem interesting by navigating the menu to the right if you’re on a desktop.
GDS systems provide the widest data coverage, while you can find more task-specific APIs from niche companies
Global distribution system (GDS) APIs:
The main data source and reservation point of contact for online travel agencies are global distribution systems (GDSs). The GDS collects and consolidates travel data from a wide spectrum of service providers and allows agents to reserve aeroplane seats, rent cars, book hotel rooms, etc. This way travel agencies don’t have to directly connect with hundreds of airlines, hotels, and other end providers. They also provide APIs to integrate reservation support into OTA booking engines to let travellers book online.
GDSs mostly focus on five types of reservations:
- Aeroplane seats
- Hotel rooms
- Car rentals
- Cruise lines and ferries
Basically, there are three main GDS players on the market: Amadeus, Sabre, and Travelport. According to Sabre, these three cover 99.9 per cent of the GDS market share. And we have all most all airlines and travel agencies API. All those make us huge resources of the aviation and travel industries.
