Hello Chaps


I need some advice, I have been asked to quote for a Holiday website inwhich I have never built before. Is there any rules or regulations I should need to know about?

Also the client eventually wants to tie into hotels booking systems, has anyone got any experience with building this kind of site and can give some tips etc...

It depends what you mean by tying into the hotel's booking systems. There are online services that provide this functionality. If they have a proprietary booking system it might be quite a challenge (definitely a job for an experienced coder).

he basically wants the end user to find the hotel and book it online, however I would imagine that there is all kinds security issues and mapping issues.

To me it seemed a doubtfull way to make money and i stopped there
