What is it?
GOL API is a universal programming tool that allows your application to access Travelport Galileo thanks to GOL IBE’s powerful booking core. The core provides basic communication with the GDS.
Is it for you?
Are you an OTA and you have programmers on your team? Or are you a developer?
If you're developing your own online booking tool or other travel related apps, and you need to connect them to Travelport GDS, you need GOL API.
Why GOL API?
Ensures more comprehensive pre-processing and parsing of data.
The query scheme is simpler than in original API connections. The core takes care of all exceptions and alternatives of the booking process that are very frequent in travel services.
Adds value by optimising the search thanks to preferences and multiple queries based on many years of experience and statistical mechanisms detecting the best results.
Provides outputs with the possibility to handle created bookings.
You don't need to take care of any changes or updates of content sources. We handle those and you can simply benefit from our stable API.
Hardest job is done
GOL API saves you a lot of time and money:
You don‘t need to develop an admin console, you can use ours which is ready.
You can handle dealer sales incl. overview of bookings and commission calculations.
You can admin commissions and service fees.
GOL API includes airline logos and translations.
You can take advantage of GOL API's system of changeable notifications to users, OTAs and its dealers.

The business logic where the application requests different types of fare quotes for individual passenger types is solved.
GOL API solves case scenarios when your application needs to send passenger names in a certain format to the host, and the allowed number of characters is limited.
You can easily fine tune search results based on different parameters with GOL API.
