Now that the French Alps are busy with holiday-makers looking for some ski and snowboarding action, the online ski transfer quote feature has been added to Snowdrop Transfers booking page. The form uses some custom tables in the WordPress database and a bit of jQuery and PHP validation to generate a ski transfer price based on the arrival airport, the ski resort destination, the number of passengers, etc. The website visitor can then confirm this quote if they like what they see and Snowdrop Transfers get an email of the quote summary.
The next step should see some enhancements to the form, maybe using AJAX, and then the developments of secure online transaction processing. This phased development has seen a re-management of website content which has resulted in a significant increase in search result performance and number of unique visitors to the site. This in turn creates the need for further website developments to improve visitor experience.
