    Hello Everyone,
    I need to make a website for a tour operator company,where customers can book air tickets,hotels & cars.We will use gds api for air ticketing.
    We will use api also for hotel booking & also hotel owners & admin have the ability to add & manage hotels.For car rental we will list our cars & clients can check availablity & book.
    A customer can book all services at a time & he will make payment jointly.
    So, I want to know that is it possible to make such a site using wordpress? If yes please let me know how ? If not , Then please suggest me if there is any other way to make such site.
    I really need this as early as possible.
    Thank you.

    It's definitely possible, but it depends on your specific requirements (like the APIs needed and their level of customization).

    For your own data you'll need custom post types for cars and hotels and manage them accordingly. For plane tickets you should integrate the air ticketing API you've mentioned (it could be a separate template or even iframe, or a widget, or whatever they do provide).

    So, at the end of the day, there is a way to build it, the question is - what time would it take.

    Once again, it depends on the API and where the content comes from.

    The easiest way is for you to aggregate content to your website, i.e. add everything in your database and operate there. This might not be possible due to legal restrictions from the data sources. Anyway, if APIs are restrictive, the system doesn't matter (whether it's WordPress, Drupal, plain PHP/Python).
