Build

Climate Gem
Version

The Wego Hotels API allows developers to interact with the Hotels product of Wego.com programmatically via HTTP requests. This is the interface to the Wego Hotels API and responses are parsed to OpenStruct object.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "wego"

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Configure

Once you are approved and you got your API key from Wego.com, then you can add an initializer to set your API keys

Wego.configure do |config|
  config.api_key  = "WEGO_API_KEY"
  config.api_code = "WEGO_TS_CODE"
end

Usages

Locations

Use this to map user location queries to Wego location IDs. E.g. you will probably provide your users with a text field for entering the location when searching for hotels. The Locations API allows you to lookup text queries like "sydney" to get a list of matching locations and their IDs.

Wego::Location.find(
  "sydney", lang: "en", page: 1, per_page: 10
)

Complete list of options: Wego Location API.

Search

To perform a real-time search on Wego's partners' sites for rates in a given location and date range, you need to pass the search terms with the user's ip. For example: create new search for hotels in Sydney (location ID 7046)

Wego::Search.create(
  location_id: "7046",
  rooms: 1,
  guests: 2,
  check_in: "2016-07-15",
  check_out: "2016-07-20",
  user_ip: end_user_ip
)

Complete list of parameters: Wego Search API.

Results

Once user created a new search and they have the search_id then they can retrieve that search results very easily. Wego suggests to wait at least 10 seconds after starting the search

Wego::Result.find(
  search_id,
  lang: "en",
  page: 1,
  per_page: 20,
  order: "asc",
  sort: "popularity",
  currency_code: "USD"
)

Complete list of options: Wego Search Results API.

Hotel Details

Get details of a hotel, like its address, amenities, photos.

Wego::Result.find(
  search_id, hotel_id: hotel_id, lang: "en", currency: "USD"
)

Complete list of parameters: Wego Search Result API.

Booking

The Wego API doesn't support the shopping cart or e-commerce process either, but using the API you can take users to continue the booking process at one of their partners' sites.

Wego::Booking.url_for(
  search_id, hotel_id: hotel_id, room_rate_id: room_rate_id, locale: "en"
)
