Introduction to Modules
As seen previously, Itinerary Templates act as the main blueprint of the trip.
Itinerary Templates can be built in a stop-to-stop program plan, or in a modular approach, by using Itinerary Modules.
We have different types of Modules that can be used as many times as needed, allowing different Itinerary Template possibilities.
Standard Templates, offering pre-and post-programs, consist of a) non-exchangeable main modules and, b) a set of exchangeable pre and/or -post modules/programs. In order to use these modules correctly, they have to be created following a set of rules in order to be displayed correctly in the Frontend.
Module Types and Rules
Flexible Itinerary Templates (FIT) are a Stop-to-Stop program option (including/excluding Transit Activities/Transfers in the connections)
|Tour||Only Transit Activities (Multi-day tours can be added)
1 Stop Option, including Hotels and Transfers
Example of the Module Types
This Module contains various stops that include hotels, activities, and transfers.
This Module contains only a Transfer and is mainly used as default pre-and post-programs in Standard Template.
This Module contains only a Fixed Tour/Transit Activity.
This Module contains only one stop, including a choice of hotels, and a transfer to and from the stop, which is mainly used as an exchangeable pre- and post-programs in the corresponding Template.
Exchangeability of Modules
Modules can be used as exchangeable components of a tour. When and how Modules are exchangeable depends on the type of Template/Tour loaded.
In order to load content to a Module, please make sure you have the following information readily available, depending on which Module type you want to load:
- Single Transfers created
- Transit Activity created
- All Transfers and Hotels created
- High-quality pictures added to all products
