Deep Links to Stations and Connections

A “deep link” is a direct link on a station or connection search which you can embed into your website or other external web pages.

When you link to your ticket shop from an external web page, you will usually take the home page of your booking area, https://shop.tixys.com/shopname.

Now, imagine that you want to create a marketing campaign or a special offer that refers to a certain departure station or a certain connection – how can you let your customers access it directly? This can be done with deep links.

Variants of deep links

Append the following parameters to the shop’s home page URL in order to create a deep link:

ParametersUse case
…?from=FROMThe station with ID FROM will be preselected as departure station. The destination station field will be filled with suitable entries.
…?to=TOThe station with ID TO will be preselected as destination station. The departure station field will be filled with suitable entries.
…?from=FROM&to=TOThe station with ID FROM will be preselected as departure station, the station with ID TO will be preselected as destination station. A search of possible connections on the current date will be automatically performed – unless there are multi-ride tickets available for the relation, in which case the customer has to select the ticket type first.
…?from=FROM&to=TO&day=DAYAlmost the same as …?from=FROM&to=TO, only that no search for alternative ticket type is performed and the customer is taken directly to the connection search for the given day. The DAY parameter must be in the YYYY-MM-DD format.
…?conn=TOUR,FROM,TOLoads a connection on tour TOUR from station FROM to station TO and goes directly to the passengers selection form.
…?conn=TOUR1,FROM1,TO1|TOUR2,FROM2,TO2Same as above for a connection with more than one leg.

So, for example, if you want to create a campaign to promote station 12345 as a departure station, you can use the URL https://shop.tixys.com/shopname?from=12345.

Make sure to test your link after embedding it. If it contains errors, the booking form will display error messages to your customers.
