Holidays and restful breaks are an important part of maintaining a happy and healthy lifestyle, and there are a lot of services out there that help to make holiday planning easy by eliminating the need to search through reams of accommodation options. The problem is, as much as the information offered online is extensive, it doesn't always guarantee that the chosen hotel will live up to how it's been portrayed in the pictures or that it will provide the desired experience. Escapio is a German booking portal that takes online hotel booking a step further. The service categorises it's hotels according to lifestyle criteria and accommodation types; all hand-picked, unique and of a specific quality standard. Escapio also makes this data available via the Escapio API.
It's funny that when I talk to people in the travel industry about mashups and APIs, most of them get glazed looks in their eyes. Throw in terms like location based services or geospatial awareness and I've lost them. What most of them don't realize is that the majority of the travel apps that are starting to come out, both online and for mobile are mashups that are relying on location awareness and geospatial data. Many of them, like Pocketvillage are a consumer interface on top of a variety of APIs all normalized for a single homogenous user experience. That's right, it's essentially a metasearch tool that pulls in content from a variety of sources including Viator, GetYourGuide, TourCMS, Rezgo, AirBnB, and many others. What differentiates a metasearch like Pocketvillage from other metasearch applications however, is the fact that with location based services enabled, Pocketvillage can return content based on your current location. The issue right now however is that not all geo data is equal. Not all APIs provide geolocation information and some return it based on different criteria.
