Ever since the spread of the Corona Virus Disease 2019, there has been a significant loss in the tourism industry. Tourist destinations are prohibited from opening, and travel restriction is also tight. These are preventive measures to avoid the spread of contagious diseases. However, as the countries are slowly starting to reopen the tourist industry, travel-related businesses are challenged to adapt ways to operate their business in a safe and convenient way for their clients. Conventionally, travel agencies use both manually and with the aid of technology. The clients can walk into the travel agency office for inquiries about travel packages, or they can visit online platforms of the travel agencies to browse. This method is helpful, but this limits the clients to explore a lot of choices of what tour packages they will avail and where they will book their travel. For the business side also, this will limit them to market their business to a broader scope of clients, especially now that we are experiencing the COVID-19 outbreak. Inlined with this, the researchers aimed to develop an Online platform that will serve as a centralized platform for multiple travel agencies to operate and transact with clients. A different branch of travel agencies can register in the system, electronically offer their tour packages, and allow clients to book online, which is easier, faster, convenient, and safe. With the online platform, the clients also can browse to more than one travel agency to look for tour packages that will satisfy them for their travel and book it electronically. The researchers aimed to ease up and simplify travel agency business operations considering the convenience of their clients as well as their business growth. The researchers will develop the project using the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Technique to ensure a complete and well functioning system. The target users of the system are travel agencies and their clients.

Introduction of the Study

The usage of technology empowers businesses to operate even beyond certain circumstances like the COVID-19 pandemic. The capstone project, entitled “Multi-Branch Travel Agency and Booking System,” is designed as a centralized platform wherein multiple travel agency branches are registered to ease and simplify inquiries and booking of travels and tour packages by clients. The said project will allow travel agencies to operate a business in an easy, fast manner considering the convenience and safety of their clients. The system will enable travel agencies and their clients to have a seamless online transaction.

Before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, travel agencies operated and transacted with their clients inside their offices. The clients would personally visit the office for inquiries and bookings, which is time-consuming and requires them to put in so much effort. However, as the pandemic strikes, some physical interaction restrictions are put in action to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases. The pandemic has dramatically challenged the tourism industry and businesses under this category, such as travel and booking agencies. The pandemic impedes their business operation, making them suffer from monetary loss since the company can’t operate the same way as before. At present, tourism is slowly reviving its operation with the authority given by the government. They can now operate but should still adhere to the health protocols for the safety of their clients. Travel agencies are currently looking for an innovative technology that can empower them to effectively operate and render safe and efficient service to their clients.

Proposed Solution 

To resolve the concerns mentioned earlier, the researchers of the study proposed the development of the “Multi-branch Travel Agency and Booking System.” The researchers will design the project using PHP and Bootstrap Script. The proposed system is designed to streamline travel agency business operations and transactions to clients electronically. It is a centralized platform that will allow different branches of travel agencies to operate digitally. They can post and market their tour packages and services on the platform enabling them to reach a broader scope of customers on the client’s side. It will be easier. Faster, safer, and convenient for them to inquire about tour packages and book them. They can register in the system as client users, giving them the privilege of browsing different travel agency branches and looking for tour packages that will satisfy their travel needs. The proposed system will significantly enhance the travel agency’s business efficiency and overall customer experience.

Objectives of the Study

General Objective-the main goal of the researchers is to design, develop and implement a centralized platform to streamline business transactions and operations of different travel agencies.

The researchers specifically aim to:

  1. To empower various travel agencies to operate using innovative technology.
  2. To streamline the business operation of travel agencies, specifically tour packages marketing and booking system.
  3. To introduce an easier, faster, and safer environment to streamline transactions between travel agencies and their clients.
  4. To give clients more choices of travel agencies with just a few clicks and without investing too much time and effort.
  5. To evaluate the system in terms of user acceptability, efficiency, productivity, quality, portability, and reliability.

Scope of the Study
