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. The requirements to create applications with travel features include Java JDK 1.6+ and Apache Ant 1.7+. The Expedia Android SDK needs to have the tools and the platform directories on the path, and supports Android version Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and above. If users are have additional interest about development possibilities such as how to build a fully API dependent site, style content to a particular business model, or control brand with SEO/SEM benefits, then they can use the Expedia EAN API. With the EAN API, users can register for an API key and launch a site.
Carpools are a great option for the daily commute to the office, especially for those who want to save a substantial amount on fuel or just simply want to minimise their carbon footprint by using their vehicles less. Carpoolworld is an application that works to help commuters and other travellers find others in nearby locations with similar transportation needs, to make ride-sharing arrangements. Carpoolworld also provides the Carpoolworld API that gives developers the option to create applications using this data.
Flight price tracker Yapta's value proposition sounds a bit like Robin Hood of the travel industry. It will not only track travel prices for you, but to help you get a refund should the price of your reservation fall after you’ve booked it. I wouldn’t be surprised if Yapta can also be used to retrieve kittens from high branches, but that part of the Yapta API isn’t documented yet.
DealAngel, hotel find engine, has launched a beta version of the DealAngel API.

With the API, DealAngel hopes to serve as the underlying knowledge that drives 3rd party sites and apps that provide hotel search services.
