Planning a trip, whether just down the road or into the next city, normally revolves around the distance of the desired location. It's common practice to search for the distance between two points on a map, then take a rough guess as to how long it will actually take to get there. But we all know that distance isn't the only factor to consider. What about mode of transport, peak traffic hours or alternate routes? All these can dramatically affect how long it actually takes to get to your destination. This post will discuss how iGeolise's Travel Time and the Travel Time API changes the way people search and the results that are produced.
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.
When it comes to taxis, most of us assume the fare is going to be a little too much, and we'd probably think twice before jumping into any cab without first knowing how much the trip will cost and if the driver is ripping us off. TaxiFareFinder is a cab fare calculator that helps users to get an estimate on how much their taxi trip will cost from one destination to the next.
