Project is for a secure website that can handle bookings for travel agent, e-commerce. Also publish tour programs from database information.
We are just a small and new company. My background is in tourism but not IT, webdesign, etc. We want to stay a small special interest ONLINE travel agent. Therefore I need help with this. There will not be much money involved, but it needs to be absolutely secure and professional. The right person might want to do this as a study/exam project. REWARD will be in the result, and future travel products at purchase price, or for free. Some actual money may be involved. Possibility to profit sharing for long term commitment.
Project can be divided into following segments. Please note the order of importance:
A - Always important for all segments is security
1 - Tour Programmes to be published from online database
2 - Booking engine
3 - Online payments (not required at this point)

Made myself with MS Frontpage,... yeah yeah I know.
Tour Programmes to be published from online database:
Currently no database in use. Can be made to your recomendation. Needs to pull multiple kinds of information. Including amounts in Euro, and other currencies through exchange rate of Bank of Europe (xml / feed). Also product photos must be linked through database. Database must be secure.
Booking engine/database to be made:
Something similar to what airlines, or hotels use. Situated on server. Customer must be able to make direct bookings for tours. Through log-in other travel agents must be able to make bookings. Amounts for product will differ for each travel agent. All direct customers will be charged same amount. Maybe some discount programs/voucher possibilites for online customers. We need to control all data, make our own bookings, and get daily/hourly reports on bookings. Engine/database must be secure.
Secure Online Payment System
This is not something that is urgent. However, due time we want our customers to offer to be able to pay online. We need a secure system for this. And not just Paypal of course. This means a merchant account somewhere and I'm looking into that. Any suggestions are welcome.
Let me know your proposal. Have a look at the attached file for more information about the company and the data.
Thanks for your interest.
