As the world’s largest web travel content aggregator, Travelfusion manages millions of daily search requests to suppliers for routes, timetables, fares, property descriptions, tour packages and package deal information. In order to efficiently manage these huge volumes and data transfers, Travelfusion has built a suite of innovative caching solutions that help optimise and regulate the way suppliers are searched and how the data is then accessed by the online travel companies/agents/e-commerce companies. Data mining is another important derivative of the fare information enabling innovative new services such as price predictions and travel inspiration based on user budgets. All Travelfusion caching solutions are available via the Travelfusion XML API.
The Meta Cache offers the cheapest fares between two locations for millions of routes. The data covers months of flight fares and acts as an essential tool for meta search and online travel applications offering cheapest fare widgets and travel inspiration-driven applications. The cache supports one way fares and includes all taxes for more accurate comparisons.

The Travelfusion fare database provides one of the world’s largest repositories for fares - collected directly from the web sites and reservation systems of hundreds of airlines, rail operators, hotels, tour operators and car rental companies.
