If one needs to build a travel product for his own, then SkyScanner is the cheapest, and probably the most efficient option to rely upon. SkyScanner with its powerful API and tools fetches the user with all the information needed for a travel website or app, that including flight searching, flights price comparisons, searching of hotels and cars, listing of hotels from all over the world, car hiring etc. and most importantly, this all at free.
In this tutorial, we will learn to use the SkyScanner API for retrieving the hotels information.
The very first thing to use SkyScanner API is to obtain an API key, which you can easily get after creating an account with SkyScanner.
PHP Code to Get Hotel Information from SkyScanner
SkyScanner first creates a session for any API operation made by the user as the first phase, and then in the next phase allows users to get the information about any of its resources within that session by passing the unique session ID inside the api calling URL, this phase is called Polling of session.
Hotel Details Information:
First you need to get an individual ID for the location, where you need to search the hotels. For this you will have to use Skyscanner Hotels Autosuggest Service API.
Here is the sample code:
Note: pari is the keyword for the place , you can use yours like delhi, mascow etc.
I have used UK (market), en_GB (locale) and EUR (currency) in my code, you can replace these with your choice.
Now in the output -> results, select individual_id for the value of your choice and pass it to the next step.
This will output the hotels with very limited information. But you can use the hotel Id to get the detailed information for that hotel.
