Private car hire firm Addison Lee has launched an API which will give companies the chance to integrate the booking function into any website or application.
The Open API service allows any partner or affiliate to integrate services such as: booking cars, upfront journey time quotes, upfront price quotes before booking, payments by credit card or cash and a ready to deploy booking widget.
Addison Lee said it didn’t have any partnerships yet but hopes that major airlines, transport providers, travel aggregators, expense management platforms and event companies will sign up to integrate the service.
Addison Lee chief technology officer Peter Ingram said: “We have always been innovative in our use of technology and the launch of Addison Lee’s API is another step we’ve taken to provide the best possible service to our customers, partners and affiliates, many of who are already planning to integrate our service into their own websites and apps.
“Our business is continuing to grow globally with new fleets in almost every major city, so we’re excited to be opening up our service and making this available through the applications and websites customers are already using, in addition to our own.”
The API was developed with Mulesoft’s Anypoint Platform.
