Is there a Shopify solution for Booking Flights or Vacations?

Would anyone know of an travel, flight booking or vacation booking website that uses Shopify? Any link to a site built with Shopify would help. 

I’m looking for a solution where customers can book travel and stay after searching for dates of travel and destination. The current solution in Shopify does not allow collection of passenger names and details before checkout (unless it is captured as a custom field). As a result, the order created in Shopify is one order but if there are 4 passengers then we need the details of all 4 passengers so we can give them their individual itinerary and travel documents. Similar to when a flight is booked, the airline collects name and passport/age details of all passengers before going to checkout page and payment. The airline then sends an email that has all the indivitickets of all the passengers. Any solution out there or advice where we may find this?

Hello @GolfSocial ,

 

First of all it's pure platform for ecommerce.

 

With the above information considered, an application for online hotel or flight bookings wouldn't be something to be found in our app store, as it wouldn't be something that hits on the two goals apps in the app store hope to achieve. 

 

Are you curious as to why there are no hotel/flight booking applications for people to use in their stores? If this is the case, do you mind me asking why you would hope to find such an app available in the app store?

 

If you want to just collect the user data it's happen with custom shopify app.

Thanks @iffikhan30  There are many industries that would need this and any form of online sales of products or services would fall under e-commerce. 

In our specific case, we sell packages that include travel and accommodation so it is important for us to issue access by identity and not as a product. As an example, I may buy flight tickets on an airline website for myself and my family and the airline will ask for the names and age of my family members before checkout and then send me an email with individual tickets in the name of my family members. Additionally, if one person decides to cancel, then Shopify can’t seem to cancel/refund the order of one person. 
We also offer vehicles and we need the names and number of drivers to calculate the correct price of the order.

Hi @GolfSocial 

 

This could be possible with BookThatApp. Using the "Tours/Activity" booking type, you could add the airlines and their destinations as products (for example: JetBlue - MIA (Miami Int'l) ✈️ ATL (Hartsfield-Jackson)). In the product's configuration, you could set the duration for the flight and set the schedule in the "Schedule" section. You can set all the flight times in the schedule. I would recommend taking advantage of the 10 booking trial to see if the app is a good fit for your services.

 

Cheers!

I totally get where you're coming from. Pre-booked seats on a long flight can be a game-changer. It's all about that sweet spot between comfort and budget, am I right? Personally, I'd say it's worth it if you're someone who values peace of mind and wants to secure that primo spot. But hey, if you're cool with rolling the dice and snagging whatever's left, that's cool too! Ultimately, it boils down to your priorities and how you wanna tackle that 12-hour journey.
