Use jomres for tour agencies

1 year 2 months ago - 1 year 2 months ago #46941 by Hamlet
I need to let tour agencies register on my site and sell their tour packages.
In the current possibilities of Jomres, I see only two alternatives for that, both having problems.
alt 1: They register each tour as a new tour based property, which will create a scattered view, too many agencies, too many tours ...
alt 2: They register their agency as a property and make their tour packages as extras (tour/activity management, Jintour,...) which is very restricted, no details, pictures, ...

The best way, in my opinion, is making some changes in tour based properties to be more similar to a hotel property.
The agency = The hotel
The packages = shared bookable rooms

How to make this happen?

I had forgotten a good response to this issue by Ally

Have you considered using regular Jomres property functionality and changing the terminology to suit your needs and then benefiting from the core translation possibilities.

I use hotel functionality for day trips, group tours and adults and children are handled as a total but with split prices.

It works fine.

Good luck

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
