Sygic Travel offers trip planning SDK and API to developers
A global trip planner, Sygic Travel, is now offering its Software Development Kit containing standalone JSON API and libraries for iOS, Android and web to other developers. The content, which has already been used by millions of satisfied travelers, includes 20 million points of interest, 2 million hotels, 70,000 tours and thousands of 360° videos. It can be used to create custom-made travel guides, to display popular places located nearby or to build own trip planner. Individual points of interest are matched with relevant tours and activities and third party companies can offer them to their own customers, earning ancillary revenue.

The Sygic Travel SDK ensures comfortable use of the global points of interest database and provides tools for map display or creation of lists with favorite places. For each popular point of interest, travelers can see photos, descriptions, opening hours, admission fees and contact information. To include tours and activities, which can be a great source of ancillary revenue, they have teamed up with some big names in the tourist business.

The standalone JSON API offered by Sygic Travel can be used to build iOS or Android mobile apps and websites. “With our help, third-party developers can easily create their own apps, list the most interesting sights located nearby or show photos, descriptions and 360° videos from various destinations,” says Lukáš Nevosád, Head of Sygic Travel. He adds: “Our goal is to provide the same features in the Sygic Travel SDK as in the Sygic Travel trip planner by the end of the year. Third-party companies will then be able to make use of all of our content as well as features like day-to-day itinerary planning or built-in tours and activities offers.”

Sygic Travel (formerly Tripomatic) provides information and services to help travelers research, plan and book their trips. More than half a million travelers use their web planner and the iOS and Android apps every month. The SDK is a part of the Sygic Mobility Development Kit.
