What is it?

The Enhanced Vehicle Book API (EnhancedVehBookRQ) facilitates the booking of vehicle content by means of either a "Vehicle Booking Key" or the traditional method of passing full rate details.

Why use it?

Features in the Enhanced Vehicle Book API include:

  • The ability to book a vehicle by means of a "Vehicle Booking Key" generated by the Vehicle Price Check API (VehPriceCheckRQ).
  • The ability to book a vehicle by means of providing full rate details (The long sell method).
  • The ability to identify failures during the orchestrated process, and properly notify the user.
  • The API will return only newly booked vehicle segment information in the service response.

How it works

The API performs several steps when booking a vehicle:

If you decide to use the "Vehicle Booking Key", the API will decode and retrieve shopped rate details based on the data provided by the key. Depending on the data of the booking key and user input, the API will book the desired vehicle rate. Alternatively, if you decide to use the traditional "long sell" booking method, you can provide full rate details in the request payload. Then the API will then book the desired vehicle. As a final step, the API will return the current state of the session in the response payload including the newly booked vehicle segment (an internal call to TravelItineraryReadRQ). Please note that the service is designed to not return vehicle segments that were booked prior calling the Enhanced Vehicle Book API.

How to use it

For detailed instructions on using this API, refer to the Enhanced Vehicle Book user guides under the Help tab.
