TripBuilder allows the setting of tour categories for templates, modules and activities within the inventory. Since multi-day tours and activities can be categorised in different ways this feature brings further information about the trip characteristics to the customer.
In the inventory, it is now possible to set tour categories for
- Stop activities and Transit activities
Tour categories can be enabled on the "Descriptions" tab of the different templates, modules and activities with the use of a toggle. Once this is enabled, it will be possible to select from the following category options. Please note that multiple selections are possible.
|Categories||Options per Category|
Discovery Category Filters
For the set categories on the template level, a set of advanced discovery filters for these categories can be enabled in settings.
Templates will be filtered following an “AND” logic, meaning that we will only retrieve the templates that match all the selected categories.
To enable the advanced filters
- Go to Cockpit
- Click on Settings and open your Distribution Channel
- Click on the Discovery Tab and scroll down to Filters
- Enable any of the Tour Categories filters
- Trip Type filter

Planner - Activity Category Filters
For the defined categories set on activity level, matching filter options are available on the activity overview page. 3rd party supply via Hotelbeds and Musement are mapped with the theme filter, while inventory activities can be set with all three options:
- Trip Type
- Target Group
Third party suppliers have no correspondence for now with the target group and trip type.
