Step-by-step guide for Hotelbeds integrated API/XML offers on your website

If you are thinking to connect your website with travel suppliers like Hotelbeds, you must take into consideration some important details:

1. Capable website

You need to have a capable website platform, so platforms like Wordpress would be very difficult or impossible to use.

  • With this purpose, we’ve created Travitude website platform - a dedicated website which incorporates a booking engine module with already integrated travel suppliers.

2. Use dedicated platforms

You need to know that it is very expensive to integrate XML/API suppliers by yourself; so, we recommend using dedicated platforms, such as Travitude.

3. API credentials

After you created the necessary “foundation” (travel supplier/s integrated into the website), you need to set up a commercial agreement with them, so they can give you your own API credentials, needed for Travitude or other lookalike website platforms.

  • API credentials are unique and the travel supplier/s use them to identify the travel agency that sends the online reservations.
  • Travitude has established strong relationships with all the important travel suppliers, so we will closely guide you through this process.

4. Payment methods

In order for the reservations to go to travel supplier/s, you also need to have set up the online credit card payment option.

  • Travitude has already integrated local and worldwide payment processors and it will be an easy process.

5. Now you’re set-up, up-to-date and ready to sell online!
