SimpleXmlElement containing the pickup and route data (must include tour ID, route ID, pickup ID and unique ID)
ID number for the channel the pickup route belongs to.


// Create a new SimpleXMLElement to hold the pickup details
$data = new SimpleXMLElement('<pickup/>');
$data->addChild('tour_id', 70);
$data->addChild('route_id', 2);
$data->addChild('pickup_id', 3);
$data->addChild('unique_id', 111);
$data->addChild('time', '09:12');

// Define the channel ID the pickup route belongs to.
$channel = 3930;

// Call TourCMS API, getting the pickup routes and their pickup points.
$result = $tourcms->tours_pickup_routes_update_pickup($data, $channel);

// Check the result, will be "OK" if a route was updated
switch ($result->error) {
    case "OK":
		// Print a success message
	    print "Thanks, your pickup details have been updated.";
    case "NOTOK":
		// Some other problem (could check error to see what)
	    print $result->error_message;
Thanks, your pickup details have been updated.
