This schema covers the basic entities needed for a tour and travel management system. Here are some explanations:

  • Customers can book tour packages, and their details are stored in the Customer table.
  • Tour packages are defined with information such as name, description, price, and duration. Each package is associated with a destination.
  • Destinations represent the locations to which the tours are organized.
  • Bookings capture the details of a customer's reservation, including the package, booking date, travel date, and payment status.
  • BookingDetails store information about the individuals traveling on a booking, including their names, ages, and any special requests.
  • Tour guides are defined in the TourGuide table, and TourGuideAssignment associates guides with specific tour packages.

Depending on the specific requirements of your tour and travel management system, you may need to expand or modify this schema. Consider additional features such as reviews, feedback, transport details, or any other information relevant to your business.
