TravelPerk Trip Webhook
This is a very exciting update, because you no longer have to poll our API to find new trips.
New webhooks let you subscribe to notifications whenever a trip is created or modified – efficiently integrating with TravelPerk to create more accurate value for customers.
How does it help you?
→ Now you can trigger any workflow based on a trip and specific details associated with that trip.
For example, to calculate the per diem allowance:
- Subscribe to Webhook to get a notification as soon as a new trip is booked.
- All details about destination, time and duration will be shared within the same payload – allowing you to calculate what the traveler is entitled to.
- In case of any change in the itinerary – you will be informed to adjust the allowance accordingly.
Learn more about how webhooks work and how to implement them in our documentation.
