Public Holidays API

Access global public holidays and many more events using PredictHQ’s API

Global Public Holidays & Much More, All in One Place

Multiple data streams in just one API

No two public holidays are created equal. In fact, while most countries around the world might celebrate similar holidays, there are often big differences between context, time and date. Take Christmas, for one. Some people celebrate Christmas Day on December 25th, some on January 7th, some don’t know who Santa is, and some don’t acknowledge Christmas at all.

With almost 200 countries around the world, it would be a massive undertaking to stay across each and every bank holiday. That is, until now. With PredictHQ, global public holidays and millions of other scheduled and unscheduled events are collated and aggregated into one handy API, so you can spend more time on building your product. Use our API to return details about thousands of events that could impact your business, or download and store your own local copy of events, so you can use them for data modeling and analysis, or enriching your own dataset to produce and sell derivative works.

Ranked Public Holidays

Not sure what events matter most? Don’t worry - we’ve sorted them for you

Need more warning to cater for an increase in demand or more lead-in time for a massive marketing campaign? PredictHQ makes it easy to be informed about global public holidays that might impact your business, thanks to our smart and easy-to-use API. We not only give you instant access to millions of scheduled and unscheduled events happening all around the world, we also tell you how important they are and which ones could impact your business. Our ranking algorithm assigns a numerical rank to every single event, so you can filter from major to minor events.

Forget the headaches that come with managing multiple sources of information. PredictHQ’s RESTful API gathers global bank holiday data into one place, making it easy for you to build your own applications that can help you plan ahead. Use our data in your own algorithms and data models to forecast when you might need to make more rooms, rental vehicles or tables available, anticipate what parts of town you should send your cab drivers to, create travel packages or adjust pricing for flights, or roster on more staff, so the next time a public holiday impacts your business, it’s for all the right reasons. Lookup events and get JSON responses. Integrate our data with any platform - and to make integrations even easier PredictHQ currently has Python and JavaScript SDKs available. We use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication, and access tokens are required to grant application access to the tools available on the API. Developers won’t need to spend precious time capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources. Plus, our API is versioned for easier maintenance. PredictHQ does all the heavy lifting for them so they can focus on their core platform.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

One public holiday is not like the other

You’ve got more important things to do than filter through the thousands of national and international holidays that are celebrated every year, which is why we’ve put our hand up to sort them all out for you. PredictHQ pulls hundreds of data streams and third party APIs across more than 18 categories (and counting) into one intuitive information source (when the occasion calls for it we’re happy to roll up our sleeves and manually collate and aggregate data too), which means all the information you need to know in advance, like what bank holidays are happening when, is in one handy place.

We don’t just give you a list of flat data that doesn’t mean much, though; we’re in the business of event visibility so you can see exactly which event might impact your bottom line. We link complementary event attributes to every one of the local, national and international events we store which helps you to make concrete business decisions built on solid data, not guesswork. Use PredictHQ as a location-based API to create event-based user segments as a foundation for successful ad campaign targeting. You can even do smart things like use IATA codes to search for events, search within a geographical radius, or query multiple locations and categories at the same time.

You can’t prepare for what you don’t see coming
