Using the Jomres as a "travel agencies portal"

I want to use the Jomres as a "travel agencies portal", to sell their tour packages.

The best way to do that as much as I examined is to have one of the following settings:

tour agency = property,
each individual tour package = an individual room type,
a seat in the tour= a room (with the capacity of 1 person)

Because the tour packages are very different in nature and are not similar to the room types which are somehow global, here I need that property manager granted the right to create room types (tour packages).

tour agency = property,
a global room type named "tour package"
each tour package = a room in the type of "tour package"
a seat in the tour = a person in the room

Here the problem is to define tariff for each individual room, and calculation of price not based on the "room type" but based on the "individual room".

So both of my derived settings have problems with Jomres' way of working.

The third way, which seems is the pre-assumed one: using tour based properties which in turn is based on the Jintour, is very restricted, in design, pictures, and many other attributes.

So my question
Is there a way to implement the first or second setup?

It seems that after the last update of Jomres 9.12.0 the first scenario is applicable, by adding the frontend room type editing feature.

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.
