RAPID API for Online and Call Center
As part of the EG family, Classic utilizes hotel content maintained by content teams at Expedia. We also sell their rates for non‐Classic Preferred hotels, often referred to as "EAN" or more accurately "EPS" hotels. Our Call Center and Website receive all this data through a dynamic API, which means that we always have the latest, most updated hotel content and rates available.
At the end of 2019, EPS retired an older version of their API and required all partners, including Classic, to switch to the latest and greatest API called "RAPID". This enormous undertaking, in the works since October 2019, was finally completed at the end of January 2020.
We still have much to fix and cleanup, but the heavy lifting is done.
