What is XML and why should I connect to EXO using it?

  • XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is the technology used to connect two systems together, such as your own booking platform with ours.
  • Once connected, you will have 24/7 access to our live, up to date rates and inventory.
  • Bookings can be made over XML any time, with complete automation.
  • Our XML is hosted on powerful, cloud-based servers which ensure our infrastructure is robust and secure, and with almost 100% guaranteed uptime.

What range of services do EXO offer over XML?

Our XML is live for all 10 of our destination countries:

> Cambodia > Indonesia > Laos > Myanmar > Thailand
> China > Japan > Malaysia > Singapore > Vietnam

In each of these destinations the following services can be booked over XML:

  • Accommodation with our EXO static contracts – either on request, or with instant confirmation when we have allotments or free-sales.
  • Accommodation with dynamic rates (coming soon) – BAR rates and other dynamic rates will soon also be available for booking over XML.
  • Experiences – all experiences that you see on our website can be booked over XML.
  • Transfers – private and SIC transfers between all major destinations
  • Multi-day packages – booking small modules and other multi-day packages are also possible

How do I know if my system is XML ready?

Your IT / Systems team should be able to advise you on this. You may already have XML connections with other suppliers’ systems, which should make the process of connecting to EXO a bit easier.

Technical details:

Our back-office in each destination is managed by Tourplan (www.tourplan.com).

The Tourplan XML specs and API are described here: http://wiki.tourplan.com/display/HOS/Version+4.03.000.

I’m interested, how do I get connected?
