Trip and Waivers

Trip and Waiver APIs includes several services that provide a richer itinerary experience and allows you to deliver your product faster to market by removing the need to create and maintain business logic for when to send alerts and which alerts to send.

The services are designed to keep the traveler informed for the entire trip when it matters most without over alerting them. Alerts can be generated and sent to travelers or agents and are based on flight segments and legs. They can be triggered on a variety of conditions and status changes that are customized to meet your needs.
