Holiday Extras API

Generating A User Token

API Docs > endpoint:usertoken

Any request to the API for either availability or to make a booking must include a valid user token. Your application should obtain a new user token for every user who embarks on an availability search. Once a user has made a booking, we expect the user token to be dropped, it should not be reused.

This is not intended as a mechanism for identifying returning users. If you require that functionality, your application should handle it separately.
