The development of a website with hotel integration via Booking API must begin with an assessment of the type and structure of the information you wish to present. Hotel information websites necessitate one approach, while affiliate program websites necessitate a completely different architecture and integrations. The only thing they have in common is that they can both contain articles on various topics with photo and video content, a detailed structure with categories and subcategories, filtration, locations, extras, and so on.
For this type of website, excellent technical literacy of the team is required, as knowledge of external service integrations, connection security checks, process optimization, and SEO optimization are all required. Only in this manner can you ensure a working software or website that guarantees very clean and fast code on mobile devices, allowing you to reach the top positions in search engines and be found by users more quickly and successfully.
A quality hotel or travel website only has added value if it sells various services directly or through affiliate programs. It is necessary for this purpose to have a good database with partners or to rely on integration via a RESTful API.
We recently completed a new project for a private client under the Besthotels.bg brand.
What makes this project appealing to us, and why are most of our colleagues incapable of dealing with this level of complexity?
To begin, we handle a large amount of data and hotel photos, which necessitates good data processing at the server level to ensure that the site loads quickly on desktop and mobile devices. According to our assignment, in this project, we have several key functionalities that come from various sources and are presented in various formats, and at the end, our client should receive his commission from various affiliate programs. The following are some of the project's key features:
- Development of a module to automate the process of calculating and recording the rating (Hot score) of various hotels based on location, kind, and price range;
- Booking.com API communication integration;
- Creating a module to automate Grabo.bg offers;
- Integration of the Google Map API for geolocation of the system's supplied hotels and offers;
- Data processing autonomy via a complete administrative panel;
In recent years, there has been a trend toward moving away from sites built on ready-made platforms and toward specialized solutions, which is demonstrated by the limited options for development of mass platforms in the direction of affiliates, and the future is in this direction. The limited possibilities for significant integrations via API with major tourism or information platforms compel us to seek solutions in this area, because the alternative is not competitive, and both our clients and we will be left behind if we do not keep up with the trend.
We are experts in creating Restful Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for Linux servers and cloud environments. Our team focuses in creating clean APIs with the sole goal of offering an exceptional user experience.
If you want to start your own business, information site, information catalog, or other software project, you've come to the proper place (not a freelancer). Our web solutions are not built on pre-built platforms (WordPress, Wix, Djomla, etc.), but are entirely coded by our team, which improves security, allows for future upgrades and refinement, and, last but not least, allows us to always update our code to new technology trends in devices. The most crucial aspect is that we are not reliant on outside intervention or time.
