Car Locations

 

The Car Locations API allows you to search for vehicles using more than just an airport code. The Car Locations API searches for and returns locations, including vehicle rates and availability, using the following the search criteria:

  • Latitude and longitude
  • City names
  • Addresses
  • Zip codes
  • Points of interest passed as brief text descriptions (for example, “Walt Disney World” or "Eiffel Tower")
  • Hotel location codes
  • Hotel segment in a booked Passenger Name Record (PNR)
  • Rail station name

You can even further specify your search by including additional shop attributes, such as:

  • Corporate discount numbers
  • Customer ID numbers
  • Vehicle type
  • Individual or a subset of car suppliers
  • One-way rentals
  • Car Extras

Change Log

Version
Description
v2.3.0 Added .../VehAvailRQCore/@RPH to allow referencing response from OTA_VehAvailRateLLSRQ for the Location query.
v2.2.0 Added .../VehAvailRQCore/LocationDetails[1]/CollectionDeliveryCriteria/Criterion/@Collection to allow querying for delivery/collection services in the request message.
v2.1.1

Removed .../VehAvailRQCore/@RPH from the request message.

This functionality was moved to the OTA_VehAvailRateLLSRQv2.3.0 request message to cater for how the back end content systems function in terms of response processing. 

v2.1.0 Updated the repeat factor associated with .../VehAvailRQCore/SpecialEquipPrefs/SpecialEquipPref in the request message to 10, and updated the repeat factor associated with .../VehAvailRSCore/VehVendorAvails/VehVendorAvail/VehAvailCore/PricedEquip/SpecialEquipment in the response message to 20.
v2.0.0 Added support for enhanced vehicle guarantee/prepayment-related functionality.
