Online Travel Applications

Communicraft have been delivering search and booking engines, e-commerce travel websites, travel application development services and hotel aggregator solutions since our foundation in 2001.

Our team have longstanding experience in online travel, the biggest e-commerce sector on the web, and a familiarity with the space that goes back to the early days of Expedia and Click and Go.

Travel Application Development

Web development services for the Online Travel sector forms a core part of Communicraft's service offering.

With the core of our travel application development team having worked for the likes of Expedia and Microsoft, Communicraft have been delivering search and booking engines, e-commerce online travel websites, travel application development services and hotel inventory aggregator solutions to the online travel sector since our foundation in 2001.

As travel retail online sales have grown exponentially year on year,  the sector has achieved a level of technical maturity far beyond many other retail areas. As the level of technical detail has advanced this has demanded ever increasing degrees of specialist technical knowledge.

Travel API Integration

Much of this knowledge surrounds the complexities of integrating multiple suppliers and third party services via XML Web Services API.

Communicraft have pioneered this area, working closely with some of the largest online service and  inventory suppliers globally, often beta testing their services before the wider industry gets access to them.

We have longstanding working partnerships with Hotel Suppliers such as Travelport, GTA, Travco, Tourico, Hotel Beds, Beds Online, Trisept / Mark International and many others.

In 2013 Communicraft developed the ORB Hotels Inventory Management / Aggregator platform, a supplier aggregation, distribution and destination management platform for the travel sector.

Online Travel Website Design & Development

Whether you are an OTA, a high street travel agent or a specialist tour operator talk to Communicraft today about what we can do for your business.

Communicraft developed, from the ground up, one of Europe's most successful upstart OTA websites for the client 1800 Hotels, and have provided web development services for Travel Leaders, one of the largest travel agent networks in the US. Closer to home, we are the web development partner for www.CelticHorizonTours.com, Ireland's finest sports and cultural travel operator.  We are also currently engaged with the Travel Bureau network in the UK and PureLuxuryHotels.co.uk, a niche Hotels OTA targetting the high end traveller among others.

As a technology partner, I have found Communicraft developers to be extremely timely, responsive and knowledgeable. They have been able to efficiently implement updates to our XML, and to optimise the booking channel
