📰 Search V3 - API Documentation

The API gives access to carpool trips on BlaBlaCar.

The base URL of the API is:

https://public-api.blablacar.com

The path to search for trips is:

GET /api/v3/trips

Your API key must be provided as a query parameter in all your requests, like below:

curl https://public-api.blablacar.com/api/v3/trips?key=YOUR_API_KEY&from_coordinate=48.864716%2C2.349014&from_country=FR&to_coordinate=51.509865%2C-0.118092&to_country=GB&locale=fr-FR&currency=EUR&from_cursor=cGFnZT0xOA%3D%3D&start_date_local=2019-01-10T08%3A55%3A00

Each trip result includes a link to get more details on this specific trip on BlaBlaCar's platform.

How to redirect to Blablacar website?

You should not try to rewrite the redirection link. You should use the one returned in the trip result and concatenate your marketing/campaign code.

?comuto_cmkt=MARKETING_CODE&utm_campaign=CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=API&utm_source=SOURCE&utm_content=WHATYOUWANT

This page is deep-linked and the website will detect if it's a mobile device and if the BlaBlaCar's app is on the device. In such a case, the user will be redirected to the app.
