What exactly is Hotel-X and why should I develop it?

Whether you want to aggregate or not, Hotel-X has got you covered. It's your business, it's your call.

The Hotel-X API is a GraphQL-based powerful aggregating API. A single connection provides you a gateway to the largest Network of Buyers and Sellers, trusted by industry leaders and niche providers around the world.

Connecting new Sellers has never been so easy - no extra developments, no maintenance.

What makes Hotel-X different?

The Hotel-X API aggregates results from multiple Sellers. Whether you prefer to aggregate at hotel level or at hotel and room type level, or even hotel, room type and rate plan level or don’t aggregate at all, we got you covered. It’s your business, it’s your call.

And it doesn’t stop there: Hotel-X functionalities can be easily extended by adding our Plugins. Any business need you might think of can be easily implemented. Do you want to avoid duplicate bookings? Add the "Booking Persistence" plugin. Want to search by Destination? No worries! Leverage the power and flexibility of Hotel-X to get an edge over your competitors. Simple. Flexible. Beautiful.

Hotel-X is the industry’s first non-opinionated API that is fast becoming the new standard in travel connectivity.
