Entering an itinerary starts by either entering an airport code, a street address, or a place name. In the case of street addresses or place names, Tuvoli will list the closest airports with drive time and runway lengths.
Tuvoli supports any number of flight legs, by entering additional destinations. Dates, departure times, number of passengers, and aircraft classes complete the entry of an itinerary.
Flight search results list the aircraft that make the most sense for a flight. Indivdual aircraft can be selected and a request for quote (RFQ) can be sent.
Operators are alerted with new RFQ's with an estimated price based on data entered by the operator. It takes as little at one click or tap to reply to an RFQ with a Quote.
A buyer reviews quotes and can confirm a quote by docu-signing the contract that is included with the quote. That returns the quote to the operator for final acceptance, which is performed by counter-signing the contract.
Once a contract is in place, a quote becomes a trip, and the buyer is prompted for funds, which are moved into a segregated account. At this point the funds are guaranteed and payment or return of the funds is determined by the terms of the contract between the buyer and the seller.
Once the trip is complete, the operator clicks a button to "close" the trip. This generates an invoice (that can be pushed to the operator's accounting software) and alerts the buyer to release funds.
If you have incremental expenses above the amount quoted, invoices can be uploaded and those charges can then be submitted to the buyer.
