Greetings All. I have just found this forum and am so glad I did. I've been trying to find a mentor in this business but if anyone can help me with a few questions then I'd be really glad.
I've just opened my own tour operating business, we started off with listing on a website and would now like to start taking bookings and organizing special tours for our clients.
My questions are as follows:
1. First off, my previous employment used TourCMS as booking software but it is extremely expensive for us here in South Africa, any suggestions on software or a way to manage our reservation system?
2. How would we obtain corporate clients?
3. What is the best way to apply for STO rates?
4. How do we arrange special rates for flights/car hire etc...?
5. Any advise? Legal advise?
Thanking all of you in advance
