If you are a travel agent, you can spend a lot of time putting together a spiffy looking travel package for a customer or you can do it in under a minute with an API. iZento announced an API this week that takes travel booking data and transforms it into a professional itinerary complete with travel documents that travel agents can proudly hand over to their traveling customers.
“Our API makes creating professional travel itineraries and documents absolutely effortless while also offering added revenue opportunities for companies and a supreme level of differentiation in the marketplace,” said Judy Roberts, co-founder of iZento.
The iZento API takes XML data from providers and outputs a customized itinerary complete with travel documents, city guides, maps, calendars, recommended activities and more.
Suppliers and travel agents can potentially use the iZento API to brand their itineraries and present their customers with a full set of completed professional documents
Travelers can bring the printed itinerary with them or they access it from their mobile device while on vacation and for up to 30 days after their return home. They can also share any part of the itinerary they choose with friends and family via Facebook and other social media platforms.
iZento includes its travel guides, which feature approximately 5,000 cities and more than 250 countries, in the service at no additional cost. The company says agents can use the guides to further customize each travel document.
The company claims its API is yet another way to enhance a traveler’s experience while boosting incremental income for a travel agency.
