Product Code – The code serves as the identifier for your product, e.g., HOHILTON for Hotel Hilton.

Here’s an example of creating a product code:

First 2 letters of category + first 2 letters of Country (ISO code) + (optional) first 3 letters of city + First 2 characters of each relevant word in the product name. For example, HESPERIA BARRI GÓTIC, 3* – The product code will be HOESBCNHEBAGO (HO = Product category, ES = ISO code for Spain; BCN = ISO code for Barcelona airport, HEBAGO = 2 first characters of each word in HESPERIA BARRI GÓTIC).

Edit a Product Code

Editing a product code is available only to users with an “Administrator” role in Victoury.

Product Name – The name of your product, e.g., Hotel Hilton.

Product Category – The dropdown list contains all categories available by default in the system. To work with different product categories, add or edit these in Settings – Choice lists tab, selecting the Product_Category section, then click INSERT ENTRY and SAVE.

Product Type – Defines the type of product for booking. It can be Arrangement, Itinerary, or Both:

  • Arrangement – Select this for products that have prices and, when booked, create an arrangement in a deal. In trip designer, products of this type are not shown in the Timeline of the trip.
  • Itinerary – For products used as descriptions or information-only products that have no price. These can be part of a package and used solely to describe something. This information might be displayed on different templates (offers, travel plans, etc.), in the case of Itinerary Deals.
  • Both – For products used both as description-only products and products that have prices and create arrangements in a deal.

Depends on the selected product type, the assignment of attributes in the package manager can vary:

For products where type = arrangement or type = both, only the following attributes can be assigned: mandatory, optional, mandatory-optional, alternative, buy.

For products where type = itinerary, only the info attribute can be set.

In the next version: In the timeline view in the Trip Designer, products where type = arrangement will not be displayed. For example, supplements in the trip package like a flight supplement product do not need to appear in the trip timeline in the trip designer but need an arrangement created when the package is booked.

Attribute Types

Available only in the package manager (trips -Package Contents and in Package Manager of products that are packages):

  • Mandatory – product will be loaded as an arrangement.
  • Optional – product will be loaded as an arrangement only if selected by the customer during the booking process or when editing an existing reservation.
  • Mandatory-optional – product will be loaded as an arrangement even if it is not selected by the customer during the booking process or when editing an existing reservation.
