Looking through our directory of travel APIs and getting lost? That's no surprise; we've cataloged 168 of them so far. Fortunately, Valentin Dombrovsky, CEO of Travelatus did a great service by focusing on the 5 he says, "are the ones that offer interesting opportunities for your site—no matter who you are, an OTA, an airline or a hotel chain, for example." Writing for Tnooz, the magazine that talks travel tech, his 5 picks are rome2rio, DealAngel, Evature, Flightstats, and InKnowledge's Taxi Fare Calculator.
Ticketbud, online ticket sales platform, is now beta testing the first Ticketbud API. Ticketbud allows users to create and manage ticket sales for any event. Although the platform allows event creation, the API is read only for the beta period. Ticketbud simplifies event management into five easy to follow steps: 1) create event 2) add tickets 3) publish event 4) promote event 5) manage event entry. Although the API is not ready to incorporate all five steps, Ticketbud is headed in that direction.
