Agent Booking Tool
Why become a (r)e-tail partner of TaxiTender?
In the highly competitive travel and event industry, it’s all about increasing earnings per booking. Therefore, trying to add ancillary services to the main booking components, has become more and more important for any market player selling travel related or activity/tours/events related bookings or tickets.
The bookable taxi service to and from these main booking components (airport, accommodation, railway station, cruisterminal, local activity starting point, business meeting, etc), is the most logical and easy to sell add on service.
Effective (up)selling of taxi bookings
The most effective way to do this, is to integrate the taxi booking option on the most effective touch points in the booking flow of your core products, e.g. in the “extras step” or as one package.
To make this possible in an easy way and short time, you can integrate the way you want with TaxiTender’s full booking API, and start increasing your earnings per booking by selling taxi bookings as an extra service to your customers.
Toolkit for (r)etail partners
Our Booking API enables a seamless integration of our taxi search, compare and booking functionality into the bookingflow or bookingtools of the partner. The partner earns a commission of 8% to 10% (depending on volume) of the ride price of sold and fulfilled bookings. We can also work with net prices so the partner can set its own prices. For travel players already operating on Amadeus GDS, you can also sell our rides through the Amadeus Transfers API.
In the menu below, you can find explanation, examples and instructions for implementation (documentation) for each tool.

This API is built for the purpose of searching available transfer and taxi services for requested routes and for the purpose of placing bookings into our system. This API is working with the semantics of REST and returns results in JSON-format. This API is created especially for integration with our partners via any common programming language like PHP, Perl, Python, C#/ASP.NET, etc.
PCI DSS 3.2 certified credit card processing Our company is PCI DSS 3.2 certified which means that we are allowed to process credit card data. Our API is technically fully audited on aspects of security, logging and technical design. We are able to receive all credit card data, create authorizations on credit cards, do direct charging and much more.
We have a development kit (also known as API Client software) available for direct integration of our API within your project. At this moment the software is in state of being released to the public. If you are interested in receiving a copy of our API Client software then please drop us a mail.
In the first phase of integration you will need to use our testing environment. To traverse between our testing and production environment you should change the hostname of your request from ‘api.taxitender.com’ to ‘testapi.yattaxi.com’. Your requests will then be routed to our testing environment. Please make sure your source IP addresses are in our whitelist to gain automated access to our testing and production environments. Please note that our testing environment does not support https, only http.
Our API is built on top of a validation layer. For placing search queries and bookings you will need to contract with us and be approved in our firewall. We will put your companies IP address and server addresses (v4) on our whitelist so that you can integrate with us without any hassle.
We use a secure REST connection for our API services. The nature of REST is to use the basic HTTP methods for requesting and modifying data. We have chosen for a little modification in this methodology and only accept POST for requests to our API to be compliant with the financial industry regulations.
As our API can return all kind of messages it is for you important to know if a response of our API must be interpreted as an success or as a failure. To solve this we implemented response codes. Those are all listed at this page.
All numbers and text that you receive in the response of our API are string types response values. This is done to simplify the integration in all the different kind of programming languages and to make testing the software simpler using a standard for data formatting. So all integers, doubles, floats, chars and strings in the API results are string typed. Objects and arrays are kept since these are offering lists functionality and are described in the JSON standard.
Response value enums
Many of our request and response parameters can have values which are always selected from a vast list of options. Those options are listed in lists (dictionaries) so that you get a closer look to our internal process and that you can be sure that you implement our API in full. All these options are listed at this page.
Multi-language UTF support
Our API has full UTF-8 support to offer multi-language support for international customers in the most of world wide common languages. The currently supported languages via our API are listed in our ENUM overview. For an example retrieve the service locations list and test your application to be ready for UTF formatted responses.
Our API is subjected a Fair Use Policy (FUP). With fair use we mean a maximum of 100 search queries (on an average) per one booking. If you wish to execute larger amounts of requests then please contact us on beforehand so that we can decide to route your requests to another server. If you do not contact us and your are exceeding these limits then you may be blocked indefinitely.
