TourCMS API

These API calls are to access your live product, booking and customer data in realtime. They can be used by TourCMS Marketplace agents to access content from multiple TourCMS accounts. These APIs can also be used by individual account owners to access their own data.

Use of the TourCMS API is free, for more info view the Marketplace overview or sign up for a free agent account.

Common use cases

For integration with a travel guide use the Tour Search method to return tours (by keyword, location, comfort level, distance to a point etc). All results include an image, lat/long, summary, short description etc and tracked links for sending the customer through to the operators website for conversion. Or for a less technical solution, see our JavaScript Widgets.

For an agent creating a lead system you could have the customer fill in a form with their details which you can then send to the operator via the Create Enquiry method. This creates a tracked customer record so that any subsequent bookings are correctly credited.

For an agent creating a booking system use the Tour show method to return the main tour information. Then use the Creating Bookings methods to put bookings into the supplier direct TourCMS accounts. You may collect payments outside of the system (and the supplier will subsequently invoice you)

For a tour operator looking to build a post booking, pre-travel customer login: You can send the customer their login details using email templates (perhaps in their confirmation email). On your website you can validate their username/password using the Customer Login Search method and then allow them to answer some additional questions / submit more information to "Extra tour booking data" using the Show Booking and Update Booking methods or update their contact details with Update Customer.

You are welcome to use these methods directly, however they are probably most useful if you are taking a regular export of TourCMS data to import into your own database. Combine with the "Show Tour" method above to get full product details.
