Supplier Connectivity - How Do I Connect?
Modified on 14 December 2012 01:57 PM

Via direct online connections with hotel, car rental and other supplier systems such as central reservation systems (CRSs), global distribution systems (GDSs) and Channel Management Systems, Tourplan provides you with the ability to instantly search for and book services from within your Tourplan in-house and Internet FIT booking modules (fastBook, hostConnect & webConnectODP).

It is important to note that Tourplan does not get involved in the supplier chain and the relationship and contractual arrangements remain between you the Tour Operator and your supplier.

The first step to connecting is to find out from your supplier what system they are using and then check with the Tourplan Helpdesk on whether a connection to that system exists or not. (A list of supplier systems where connections already exist can be obtained from the Tourplan Helpdesk.)
Depending on which supplier you are connecting to you may connect to a Central Reservations System, which allows you access to all suppliers in the chain, or you may connect directly to the individual supplier.

We have a white paper that will help you to …

  • Understand what the pre-requisites for connecting to External Suppliers/Systems are
  • Understand what is involved in setting up a supplier connection
  • Gather the information required to setup a supplier connection
  • Apply to Tourplan Support for a supplier connection
