INTRODUCTION This specification provides the definition of the Travel, tourism and leisure information inquiry response - interactive message (TIQRSP) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport. 1. SCOPE 1.1 Functional definition An interactive Travel, tourism and leisure inquiry response is sent by a service provider in response to an information request for a product or service. 1.2 Field of application The Travel, tourism and leisure information inquiry response - interactive message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry. 1.3 Principles The request message, TIQREQ, for which TIQRSP is the response may be used to request lists of information or very detailed information. An initial request might request a list of hotel properties in a city. Based on the information returned, the next request in the scenario might ask for detailed information by specifying the item number for a specific property returned in the initial response. The next request might then ask for rule details from a list of rules specified in the previous response. TIQRSP may be used for the following functions within the interactive scenario for Travel, Tourism and Leisure (TT&L): (1) to respond to a request for a travel product or service in a specific city or geographical region. The response may include a list of products, such as a list of hotel properties in a city, a list of rental car locations, or schedule of trains. (2) to respond to a request for detailed information for a specific travel product. The response for information for hotel might include a description of the property, all the room types, recreation facilities at the hotel, transportation to the property, and points of interest close to the hotel. (3) to respond to a request for a specific type of information for a particular travel product. The response might be a list of the special equipment available for a car type, a list of facilities at a train station, or the rules concerning insurance coverage. (4) to respond to a request for corporate information for the supplier of a product or service. The response might include the promotions available to the traveller, the supplier's guarantee and deposit requirements, or the contact information for the vendor code. 2.
