Airlines / Travel industry - price monitoring at its most complex
Airline / travel industry
Websites are known for being some of technically most complex websites on the Web. Capturing prices from such sites was always a strong technical challenge – and that’s where Price2Spy expertise comes in.
Typically, what our clients from these industries supply us is
List of destinations / routes – ranging from a few hundreds up to several thousands
List of travel models (single / return trip / trip dates) – typically between 1 and 8 travel models
List of websites to be monitored (either standard travel Websites, or meta-search sites)
Depending on the client’s needs, what we capture for them is
Flight schedule / carriers
Number of stop-overs
Travel / Flight price
A number of cheapest travel offers (or client’s / competitor’s position in the list of offered flights)
What we deliver for our clients are not standard Price2Spy price change reports / alerts (as for Price2Spy clients from other industries) – because it simply makes no sense in industry with so many price points. Instead, we supply raw data (either via CSV / XML export, or via Price2Spy API access).
This data gets fed into client’s proprietary database, handled by client’s own IT.
