Great idea. Poor support and communication

They had a great idea to provide a good software for travel agencies with a great price, but you should do some compromises. Will be somehow hard to get a decent support from them. From local modules do not expect too much. They are very basic, at most, because the "tours" module will allow you to add tours but not to specify the tour dates, so your "7 days tour around the Europe" for example, will be available anytime on the website and can be booked by anyone on anytime... The developers should take in consideration some suggestions by their clients, and, should have some tourism related info's. The module "offers" is unusable since in the tourism sector, offers are not made as the module works, but "offer" means an existent tour, hotel, car rental, cruise, bus ticket, etc that has a discount or a promotional price. So, that module is unusable. Menu's in the header, footer or anywhere else, on new version, are not manageable. Front-end theme is very hard to be build. You have only the possibility to edit colors of the default theme, and if you want to build a new one, you should work with core files too that, on the next update, are overwritten and your modifications will be gone. Probably exist many more issues but, overall, that's it. Is OK but, if you want it to be usable as it should be, you will have very much to work on...and pay, if you can't do it by yourself.

Pros

It's an easy to use software once you have installed it. Installation can be somehow tricky but it will work with some "Google-ing" because, if you will ask support for anything, they will ask for your cPanel host details so they can resolve the issues by themself. It has many useful modules, api integrations, iFrames and whitelables from many providers, and some local modules such as hotels, tours, cars, offers (not usable). It looks to be pretty fast on loading time, but i am hosting it on a powerful dedicated server. The documentation is a very good one for start using it and for newbee's on php/html/unix/mysql user.

Cons

Very poor support. Probably the worst support i have ever got... ever - and i'm in the sector for more than 12 years. If you will find a bug and need to resolve it (an you are not new on this), they will not explain you anything but they will just ask for your cPanel details so they can access your server and resolve the issue without any explanation. It can be good for e newbee but for someone that is, at least, intermediate on php and frameworks, this is not a good way to handle it. Also, one of the biggest problem is that, if you host your website in a company that don't offer cPanel for Control Panel and Host Management, they will not assist you at all. They know only cPanel and if you don't have cPanel, you will never get any support. I don't how a web developer don't know how to use FTP service for accessing files or PhpMyAdmin for accessing database. This are the base of web development, I think and is pretty weird how can be possible that they always need cPanel access (note it, cPanel - no webmin/virtualmin, no plex, no any other control panel).
If you will ever need to build a new module, you don't have any documentation regarding it. At least, where the files should be placed and a basic how-to should be mandatory, i think. If you ask them, they will not assist you ate all and will tell you that they can build any module for you...by paying it. So, don't bother to ask them. This is the biggest minus they have and hope that, in the near future, they can reflect...

PHPTRAVELS Software Perfect for Startups

PERFECT STARTUP SCRIPT: All website developers are categorized in three main classifications; The Honest ready-made web site scripts developer, The scamming developers that takes your money and disappear, and the Lazy developer that takes money and delivers half products and disappear. I am writing from vantage point. In The Honest ready-made web site scripts developer, there is only one company that fell into this category; PHPTRAVELS. This company had it made. They operate very silently and yet deliver a very affordable feature rich website script that is so easy to install within a couple of minutes and BAM!!!! your travel agency is up and running online. Compared with the rest of the other "wannabies" developers, PHPTRAVELS runs rings around them in such a way that it will be too hard to stay away from PHPTRAVELS once you kick off your web site with PHPTRAVELS scripts. PHPTRAVELS very well passed EAN/Expedia production testing and it is truly API compliant to Expedia requirements. The same applies to CarTrawler, and numerous Flight API modules. The API compliance of PHPTRAVEL provides an initial cash-flow for the start-up agency. This is how ShopToTravel.Com started and we have never regretted using PHPTRAVELS Scripts. PHPTRAVELS is not perfect, but none of the other web site developers comes close to thirty percent of its perfections. Starting up as a travel agency online is not easy and it is very challenging. There is no way you can establish an online travel agent without spending at least close to ten thousand dollars except for PHPTRAVELS. The price for PHPTRAVELS scripts and add-ons is so reasonable that you would want to include all add-ons in one purchase most especially the PHPTRAVELS APPS. SUPPORT: I was never disappointed on PHPTRAVELS support. Support is within a highly reasonable time. You are treated as a VIP at all times when you are in need of their support. Sometimes, they very silently wave a support fee to assist you in rectifying issues concerning PHPTRAVELS scripts. Their support group do not talk too much. They very silently fix your issue and then let you know that In order to avoid any delays and misunderstandings they fixed your issues even though you supposed to pay for it. This is one of the very best customer service I have seen in the IT world. You know something, you can even add tour packages, offer packages and other travel services you want without writing any codes.

Pros

Easy to install and get a web presence fast.

Cons

The price fields should have been a variable character fields so that agents can enter prices like instead of a fixed price that forces agents to enter a fixed price for a package that might change at any time.

Interface

It was fantastic and it reduced our work and delivery was fast

Pros

The design and simplicity of the web app is fantastic

Cons

Customizing the application is a little bit hard, not all the changes can made via the admin interface, and also it will be good to integrate more payment solution to the app so any country that purchase can select from list of payment gateway, we are in Nigeria so adding a payment gateway accepted here will be great.

Best Software For Travel Agencies

PHPTRAVELS is all that any Online Travel Agency(OTA) needs to jump start their online travel services business. Solidly packed with hotels, tours, special offers and car hire modules, the software stands is in a class of its own. Better still is that the software is multilingual and uses multiple currencies with an automatic currency converter. Customization is done at affordable rates. I could go on and on talking about the virtues of the script and maybe never stopped; please give PHPTRAVELS an online test drive through their online demo. THIS IS ONE SOFTWARE YOU WILL NEVER REGRET BUYING. It is very, very good value for money.

Pros

It many good features

Cons

It has no editable home page

Easy To Use, Value For Money

It is a very good and fast script. Developer has to do some changes in Inventory UI.

Pros

First Of All, I like the Installation Process of the script. It is very easy to install at any web hosting. Overall performance of script is also very good. Fast and Stable.

Cons

XML Supplier and Own Inventory Hotels are showing on different list. Developer have to work on the combine of both things. We can not show our clients double options for Hotel if we have both type of inventory

PHP Travels is one of the best software to buy

I have been looking for a solution for a travel agency website, after spending many days for searching a suitable one, I decided to buy this piece of software for many reasons. It's rich in features, regular update, and product support. The only thing I would like to integrate 'channel manager' into this valuable product. So it will be very useful for hotel owners to manage their inventory from a central location. Thank you for the valuable product for an affordable price. Ahmed

Pros

easy to use and built on a reputed framework and regular updates for life.

Cons

Property management via a channel manager

Mixed Feelings about this software

My experience was very mixed the help desk are very patient and try to help but it's extremely difficult when you can't speak to them. I personally think it's mis-sold, it should clearly state that you most definitely need IT specialists to get it working for you. Even my IT guys couldn't get it working for me. Also the suppliers they show that can be used are only available in certain geographical areas, for example Expedia would not allow me to create an account to connect to this software.

Pros

The front end looks really really good.

Cons

You 100% need and IT specialist to use this software, it is NOT a plug & play system. I tried for months and spent a fortune on IT guys and still couldn't get it to work so I gave up and now the software is just sitting there being unused. You need to get your own API connections installed so unless you are very knowledgeable about computers it's absolutely impossible.

Not what it looks like

Have not solved any problem. Please do not buy. Support was very annoying. At first they helped a little, but as time goes on they kick you aside. There is no upgrade of the software that works. Upgrade does not upgrade the database. So you must pay them to perform the upgrade for you. There is no upgrade documentation. I just hate the software so much that I have to close down my website because there was no reliable maintenance of both the script and the database. PLEASE DO NOT BUY. LEAVE IT ALONE.

Pros

There is nothing to like in the software.

Cons

Software is useless and there is nothing to like least

TRIP PLANNER

Long-term observer of your work and your program. But I could not understand your working principle. You made an interesting product. But there are many uncertainties. In other words, you create a product, selling a product that is tested. I would like to see the full version of the product. As well as your modules are not related to each other. Each service separately to buy a tourist. It is better able to choose a service together.

Not as expected

Not as good as expected. They should innovate. Websites are now better looking that what they have.

Pros

Software is light, fast enough.
The only advantage they have over other softwares out there is the integeation with many systems, however most of that modules are not working yet.

Cons

Suppport is not as good as expected. I purchased their product mainly for 1 module they include, however when I started to test it, that module is not working at all. Has a lot of bugs and now they told me I had to wait an update to solve those issues. Documentation is not very good, even software with a lower level have a better documentation. Forums are ther just to be there, almost no replies from PHPTravels developers, helping user to go forward.
Integrations are really expensive, considering the software is not ready to go out yet. Many bugs to solve and many features to add. I asked for a basic feature of limit the amount of people in a tour and they told me I had to pay them to add a basic feature like that. Software does not look modern and innovative.
