I'm wanting to own an operate my own travel site (hotel, cars, airfare, cruises, etc..). I'm currently researching Travelocity's and Expedia's programs. Both programs are free. I'm leaning now towards Travelocity's Program (World Choice Travel Partners) as I was told there program is much better and the coding is easier. This is an end-to-end private label site.
I will purchase a template and have you code it for me along with a Logo design. Your input in the type of template to purchase would be greatly appreciated as there are many different programming options out there (CSS, HTML, etc..) From what I'm told the standard set-up is pretty simple to achieve by just uploading unique Headers and Footers which have been customized to your site’s identity, cutting and pasting an various links, however in order to achieve a fully independent look and feel of the pages, a bit more work is required.

9.) I want complete work plan and deadlines to complete the site with all function abilities.
We will own all copyrights to all work upon payment. Any contents, coding and features are not to be reused in any way for any reason (including resell, reuse, re-write or give away).
