Utilisation management and Disposition

If you see higher or lower demand than you’ve expected on a given tour, you can react by assigning a different vehicle or adding more tours.

Free vs. Premium

Some of the tour features are only available in the “Premium“ version.

Manage tours and their utilisation

To see how many tickets are booked on which tours and which tour legs, go to the Administration areaBookingsTours page. There, you can also assign different vehicle types and load all tickets of a given tour.

The “disposition” of vehicles is a very important aspect of your fleet management. The vehicle type assigned to a tour has to match the demand, but if it’s too large, it might cost more money than necessary.

Discount models always consider the current utilisation and capacity of a tour leg. If a tour’s vehicle type is changed, tickets may become cheaper again if the applied discount model is based on the relative utilisation.
