TA-Tools and TO-Tools are tools that are displayed in the planner of the TripBuilder system when they are enabled. These tools give further functionalities to different user segments. 

TO-Tools are Tour operator tools, and they are generally used by all TO users or admin users of the platform. 

On the other hand, TA-Tools are intended for Travel agents users, which are especially important for customers with a Travel Agency Management set up. 

Please Note

If your TripBuilder is set up without Travel Agency Management, then the TA-Tools check box does not need to be enabled. 


Steps to enable/disable TO-Tools: 

  • Go to Settings
  • Click on Distribution Channels
  • Click on your TripBuilder ID
  • Click on the Planner tab
  • Enable/Disable the different features by checking the boxes 
  • Click Save
