Drungli Travel Launches Travel API to Get You Going

The Drungli API is one of 223 travel-related APIs in our API directory. Public documentation is not available (for access contact info@drungli.com).

Since the site is not a travel agency, they don’t charge for bookings. Instead, the goal is to inspire people to travel, and make that easier offering a friendly search engine so you can compare, schedule and book. Drungli exudes a commitment to fun. They have a map to test your geography skills. Consider this rare type of  ”anti-testamonial” they’ve posted:

“Must. Not. Use. Drungli. To. Book. More. Travelling…. Must. Take. Degree. Seriously. 😔💭✈”

They’re also committed to finding inexpensive solutions, with blog posts like How to Stay in Beautiful Homes for Free , that has a list of house sitting networks you can belong to. And wacky: their home page allows you to pick a travel date and they pick the place… The new way to throw a dart at a map.
