Wct's online hotel booking engine is also available in our exclusive XTra (XML for Travel) interface in addition to the standard HTML format. XML (Extensible Markup Language) encoding is an efficient way of organizing and formatting data. Our custom interface allows you to customize the hotel booking engine in ways that standard HTML cannot do.
Using our XML/XTra technology, you can create a flexible, modern travel site with your own look and feel without having to invest in costly and complicated design plans. Our powerful interface enables you to fully customize search forms and results pages.
Turn Lookers Into Bookers
With our XTra interface, your hotel booking engine has instant access to our raw data inventory and booking capabilities in GDS systems and our own proprietary room inventory system.
Sites with our XTra interface create hotel requests formatted in XML encoding. Requests are then sent to our servers for processing with responses returned in XML. Your XTra-powered site can interpret this data and transform it into a customized results page, with a format and layout of your own design. Your customers can then make informed decisions in an attractive, efficient booking environment.
A Competitive Edge
Through increased functionality and flexibility and an improved appearance, you will be able to sell with a competitive edge not found on many travel booking sites. With XTra, all of the links reside on your own server and do not reference WCT's IP address or brand. This is crucial for effective indexing of your site in search engines.
Please note that XTra is not for every partner. The key to successful implementation of our XTra interface is having access to a technical staff capable of customizing your web application. Your site should be able to implement and run custom web applications (Java, Cold Fusion, Visual Basic, Perl, etc.) In addition to skills associated with the programming language used to develop your current web application, a good understanding of how XML works is needed. You should also have a static IP address for the server using the XTra interface.
Our experienced team will provide the technical specifications and work closely with you on understanding and implementing a smoothly functioning system.
