API integration is a powerful tool, but it may not be suitable for everyone. Consider the following:

  • Technical Team: Ensure you have a dedicated technical team to build and maintain the integration, as we cannot provide full onboarding support.
  • Time and Capacity: Assess if your team has the time and capacity to manage the integration.
  • Volume Criteria: Verify that you meet the necessary traffic and booking volume criteria for your desired level of access.
