Travel Integration Services
Integration of enterprise applications on the basis of services is one of priority activities of our company. Today there are many different systems in the market which do not have software interfaces to interact with each other. If the architecture of two systems allows to organize integration between them on the basis of services, we solve this problem.
Now we have ready decisions in the following areas:
Integration services of the program set “InTour Office”
The XML interface for search, booking and data exchange with external travel systems “InTour XML service”, working as a part of “InTour Office” program set, allows to exchange data with external travel systems in the XML format and consists of two functional units:
This service is the remote program interface (web service) which is intended for search and booking of travel services (hotel accommodation, transfers, excursions, excursion programs and extra services) online in provider’s system.
The client application can access the service in two ways:
- SOAP via HTTP
- XML via HTTP
Possibilities of the service:
- Getting reference data, necessary for search and booking:
- List of the countries, resorts, cities
- List of sightseeing attractions in each city
- List of the hotels with description and photos
- List of room types and categories, accommodation types and meal options
- List of the airports, stations, flight numbers, etc.
- Search for hotel accommodation offers (with price specification for every night accommodation)
- Search of transfers (with description and conditions)
- Search of excursions and sightseeing tours (with descriptions and photos)
- Booking (all services are reserved in one order)
- Query of the reservation state
- Receiving the list of previous bookings
- Cancellation (with the possibility of pre-information about penalties for late cancellation).
This service allows to organize automatic data exchange with external travel systems (Master-Tour, SAMO-tour, etc.) in the XML/JSON format. Using of this module will allow you to speed up significantly the booking processing time, simplify and accelerate the process of publication of prices, quotas and special offers for tour operators.
Main functions of the module:
- Receiving new reservations, changes and cancellations from tour operators;
- Sending confirmations (non-confirmations) to the tour operator according to the reservation or separate services;
- Exchange of messages with tour operator according to the reservation;
- Publication of hotel accommodation prices for automatic import by tour operators;
- Publication of hotel accommodation quotas for automatic import by tour operators;
- Publication of stop sale data for automatic import by tour operator;
- Publication of invoices data for automatic import by tour operator.

Integration services for program set “SAMO-tour”
XML Data Exchange service
Designed to organize the automatic exchange of XML data between tour operators working with program set “Master-Tour” and host partners working with program set “InTour Office” or any other system that supports the InTourXML data exchange standard. Using this software will allow you to significantly speed up the processing time of applications, simplify and speed up the entry of quotas and special offers for hotel accommodation into the database.
As a free application, the Exchange Monitor add-on is provided with the service, which provides control and management of automatic data exchange.
The basic package provides the following functionality:
- Automatic sending of new reservations, changes and cancellations to the incoming partner;
- Control of the correctness of reservations for a number of parameters (duplication, linking tourists to services, linking tourists to children’s accommodation, presence of the birthday date for children, etc.);
- Receiving confirmations (non-confirmations) from the incoming partners according to the reservation or separate services;
- Exchange of messages according to the reservation with the incoming partner;
- View the log of the data exchange;
- Data exchange management.
Price list publishing service
This service allows you to set up automatic publication for external partners (tour operators, agencies, search engines) of prices for calculated tours, as well as daily prices for hotel accommodation. Prices published in this way can be automatically imported into the program set “Master-Tour” or “SAMO-tour” using the “Universal import of price lists module” or the partner’s own software.
Service advantages in comparison with the standard solution of the program set “Master-Tour”:
- Possibility to publish daily prices for hotel accommodations. Your partner can add their flights to the hotel accommodations received from you, and thus create a tour with your accommodation, but with a flight from their city and on their blocks of seats;
- Significantly higher efficiency (speed), especially when publishing large pool of data;
- Ability to request only new (changed) prices that were not previously imported by the client;
- There is an administration utility that allows you to publish prices for all or only selected tours;
- Availability of special “debugging” functions that allow you to control the performance of the service, as well as simplify the process of debugging of client applications.
Service rental cost:
- 4000 ₽/month for one connection partner;
- 12500 ₽/month for an unlimited number of connections.
