    Installation

    Install with npm:
    npm install yfb-expedia

    Initialization

    Usage requires an Expedia Api key and CID. For development use you can use the CID 55505. You can obtain your api key from the Expedia EAN api documentation.

     var options = {
            cid     : "YOUR CID",
            apiKey  : "YOUR EAN API KEY",
            locale  : "en_US",  // optional defaults to en_US
            currencyCode :"USD"  // optional defaults to USD
        };
     
    var expedia = require("expedia")(options, sendAsREST);

    sendAsREST parameter allows you to choose if you want to send your data in XML or REST format (forgetting the param sets format to XML). Note that usage of XML is going to be deprecated by Expedia.
