Hi Kani,



Thanks for reaching out to the Tourism Structured Web Data Group.



The Schema.org release n.:3.4<https://schema.org/docs/releases.html#v3.4> that includes some significant enhancements, will definitely help Google better understand the offering of your travel website. In this case, I recommend you leverage the tree main tourism markup below:



TouristAttraction<https://schema.org/TouristAttraction> - Use this to mark up any touristic point of interest i.e. museum, mountains, amusement parks, etc.



TouristDestination<https://schema.org/TouristDestination> - Use this to mark up a Place that contains, or is colocated with, one or more TourstAttractions



TouristTrip<https://schema.org/TouristTrip> - Use this to mark up your trips: i.e. declaring the whole itinerary, which may contain one or more places of interest or destinations (TouristAttraction/TouristDestination)



And If you want to go down the rabbit hole, you can also use the Trip superType<https://schema.org/Trip> to markup the transportation options within your trips (I.e. Flight, Train, Bus, etc) so that you have also arrival time, departure time, offers, and providers covered.


I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck with your travel company

Best,
Amine

Hi Kani,



Because of the limited number of data-types that google supports, currently your best bet would be to label them as either products or events:



https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/product



https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/event



Its up to you which to use, as neither is a great match for touring products, but the are the only ones supported by google.



Hope this helps.



Kind Regards

Michael

Dear Sirs,



We ha ve a travel company organizing daily tours.

On our site, we inform our customers about the trip, the dates we organize the trip, about its price but, we do not sell directly from the website.

What kind of schema, we have to use to inform Google about our tours.

An example page we have is as follows;

https://klsvoyages.com/wycieczki-fakultatywne-z-bodrum/wycieczka-efez-z-bodrum/



Thank you from advance
