Project Description

Hi,

We need you to build a travel website whose main activity will be to sell accommodation in Mauritius online. Secondary activities will be the sales of airport/hotel transfers, tours and car rental.

We will get our own merchant account and you will have to integrate it with the website so that we can accept payment by credit cards.

The design of the website should be professional and elegant.

The website should look like,

Homepage

Property Page :

The CMS
We have a preference for Drupal. But all suggestions are welcome.
All aspects of the website must be fully CMS controlled.
The CMS must control the design/structure of the website, as well as bookings, SEO, reports on sales, invoices, booking status etc.
We also must be able to insert meta tags through the cms for individual pages.
We intend to buy a few domain names targeted at specific keywords. Therefore I should be able to use the same structure and CMS for the the different websites. I should be able to change color tones, menu etc.
Must be able to track bookings from each “affiliate website” individually.
Affiliate websites must have separate logins to track earnings and traffic.
CMS Training & CMS Documentation must be provided

Please make sure you include projects that you have completed as we need references. Do not send us references of projects which are not travel related. Only those who have experience in travel websites and CMS programming will be considered.

We need a company/freelancer who will be available for maintenance and upgrading of the website in the future. We are looking for a company/freelancer to build an ongoing relationship with.
