What is an API?

API… if you work with a tour operators, online travel services, airlines or hotels, you’ve probably heard someone reference their API. If you’re planning to attend a big travel industry trade show like IPW, the ABA Marketplace, World Travel Market or ITB, you’re going to hear about it. So what is an API and why do so many travel trade buyers and package tour planners use them?

We found this great video that helps explain the role of APIs even in our b2b, b2c, tourism and trade trade world. Take a look.
