TravelPerk Trip webhook
This is a super exciting update, as you no longer need to poll our API to find new trips.
The new webhook allows you to subscribe to notifications whenever a trip is created or changed - generating more accurate value for customers by integrating efficiently with TravelPerk.
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 expense allowance:
- Subscribe to the webhook to get a notification as soon as a new trip is booked.
- Within the same payload - all the details about the destinations, timings, and duration will be shared - allowing you to calculate exactly what the traveler is entitled to.
- If there are any changes to the itinerary - you’ll be notified to adjust the allowance accordingly.
Learn more about how the webhook works and how to implement it in our documentation.
