The Travelport Universal API (uAPI) is both a sales tool for Travelport employees and a learning tool for developers who want to “take a look under the hood” and see an example of how uAPI can be implemented in their own tools. It is intended to showcase the Universal API capabilities, allowing the user to perform a simulated booking flow during which at any point the user can inspect the XML to get a sense of how uAPI plugs into the interface.
uAPI can display a variety of content: air, hotel, vehicle, and rail. Ancillaries may also be available, depending on the type of content. It is designed to be a streamlined service that reduces complexity and simplifies the process of shopping, booking and reconciling travel services and sales.
