Expedia, the travel resource to plan a trip from beginning to end, features an Android SDK. The project contains 2 components: An Android optimized Java library to make calls to the Expedia Affiliate Network API and a sample Android app that uses the API to visualize the example of the calls made.

Key to this is the World Travel and Tours API, which accepts HTTP GET calls and returns data in XML. World Travel and Tours joins some 272 travel APIs in our directory.

Carpoolworld also provides the Carpoolworld API that gives developers the option to create applications using this data.
