QloApps Tours and Packages

QloApps Tours and Packages is an addon that will unlock a whole new dimension of the hotel business for the admin. Using this addon, the admin will be able to sell tours and packages from his website and not just hotels.

The tours and Packages option on a hotel booking website is always one of the USPs for that website.

People prefer booking tours instead of making all the bookings separately due to many reasons. It saves them time and money and is very convenient. And that is why they are more attracted to the websites that offer tours and packages.

The decision to offer tours and packages on the hotel websites is very fruitful. It helps the admin to fill out the inventory quickly, and also earn some extra revenue on the services offered in the package.

Note: You have to make the below-mentioned changes in QloApps only if you are using QloApps version 1.5.0 or less.

Before you install the QloApps Tours and Packages addon you must make a few changes in the core for the proper functioning of the module.

The step is very simple, you just have to locate the following paths and replace the mentioned codes.

Open the hotel commerce folder –> modules–> hotelreservationsystem then open the hotelreservationsystem.php file.

Now go to the line number 362 and replace the following code:

$orderProducts = $order->getProducts();

replace this code with the following code.

$orderProducts = $order->product_list;

Open hotel commerce folder –> modules–> hotelreservationsystem–> classes then open the HotelBookingDetail.php file.

The change the code from line no 348 to 350

$sql = 'SELECT ri.`id` AS `id_room`, ri.`id_product`, ri.`id_hotel`, ri.`room_num`, ri.`comment` AS `room_comment`
        FROM `'._DB_PREFIX_.'htl_room_information` AS ri
        WHERE ri.`id_hotel`='.(int)$hotel_id.' AND ri.`id_product`='.(int)$room_type['id_product'].' AND ri.`id_status` != 2 AND ri.`id` NOT IN ('.$exclude_ids.')';

will be replaced by:

$selectAvailRoomSearch = 'SELECT ri.`id` AS `id_room`, ri.`id_product`, ri.`id_hotel`, ri.`room_num`, ri.`comment` AS `room_comment`';

$joinAvailRoomSearch = '';

$whereAvailRoomSearch = 'WHERE ri.`id_hotel`='.(int)$hotel_id.' AND ri.`id_product`='.(int)$room_type['id_product'].' AND ri.`id_status` != 2 AND ri.`id` NOT IN ('.$exclude_ids.')';

$groupByAvailRoomSearch = '';
$orderByAvailRoomSearch = '';
$orderWayAvailRoomSearch = '';

Hook::exec('actionAvailRoomSearchSqlModifier',
    array(
        'select' => &$selectAvailRoomSearch,
        'join' => &$joinAvailRoomSearch,
        'where' => &$whereAvailRoomSearch,
        'group_by' => &$groupByAvailRoomSearch,
        'order_by' => &$orderByAvailRoomSearch,
        'order_way' => &$orderWayAvailRoomSearch,
        'params' => array(
            'id_hotel' => $hotel_id,
            'id_product' => $room_type['id_product'],
            'date_from' => $date_from,
            'date_to' => $date_to
        )
    )
);

$sql = $selectAvailRoomSearch;
$sql .= ' FROM `'._DB_PREFIX_.'htl_room_information` AS ri';
$sql .= ' '.$joinAvailRoomSearch;
$sql .= ' '.$whereAvailRoomSearch;
$sql .= ' '.$groupByAvailRoomSearch;
$sql .= ' '.$orderByAvailRoomSearch;
$sql .= ' '.$orderWayAvailRoomSearch;

Open hotelcommerce folder –> modules–> hotelreservationsystem–> classes then open the HotelCartBookingData.php file.

Paste the following code under the “if condition” of line number 815 to 974.

if ($roomDetail = $objRoomType->;getRoomTypeInfoByIdProduct($product['id_product'])) {
	//place code from line no. 815 to 974 under this condition
}

Open hotelcommerce folder –> themes–> hotel-reservation-theme–> js–> modules –> blockcart then open the ajax_cart.js file.

Paste the following code under the “if condition” of line numbers 813 to 822:

if (cart_booking_data[key].date_diff !== 'undefined') {
	// Place code from line no. 815 to 974 under the below if condition
}

Place code from line no. 849 to 858 under the below if condition https://prnt.sc/w5dyzq
