preparing a spreadsheet that helps one to plan custom vacation packages for families. The final outcome would be a nice vacation whin a given budget and a given time span. While the scope of the work is pretty flexible, there are certain expectations that need to be met. You have the complete freedom to decide what the dimensions of “nice” are.

(a)                There should be option of constructing a tour circu by first selecting a state to vis, using a drop down list on the visual display. The list of tourist destinations should then appear automatically depending on the choice. The tour circu will be constructed by choosing towns of tourist interest from this list, and deciding on the sequence in which the places will be vised. For example a client could choose Bihar as the state to vis and then construct the circu wh Patna, Nalanda, Rajgir and Gaya in that order.

(b)               To increase flexibily in travel time, there could be a facily for selecting mode of transport.

(c)                For the tour circu your spreadsheet should allow for analysing two package options based on mode of transport (Air, Train, Car), and hotel qualy (star rating, customer feedback etc.) for travelling from one place to other, activies, side tours and length of vacation. A tour starts from the first cy and ends in the last one. Analysis of each package should result in a visual output of bar graphs comparing scores in budget, flexibily, and other metrics of your choice. Remember that outputs need to be scaled so that comparisons can be made on the same chart for the package options that can also be selected through radio buttons on Option 1 or Option 2 (radio buttons are simple extension of the check-boxes).

(d)               Each bar graph should also have check box options to enable selection of various modes of transportation (Air and car; Air, Car and Train; Train only etc.).

(e)               There should be a way of giving the clients some idea about how much would be if bought now   vs. two months later (this is in consideration of the significant savings that could accrue if the flight is booked much in advance).

The bottom line is that this would enable the client to get a clear feel of ‘What would constute getting the most out of his/her trip’.

At the time of conceptualizing the model, you may keep the following guidelines in mind:

a)                  The users of the spreadsheet will be cy persons and that feature in the decision making

b)                  The budget would be flexible wh an upper lim. But (s)he would want value for money and would feel comfortable if is kept whin certain lim.

c)                   Tours and trips must be carefully considered

d)                  A bad hotel will quickly ruin the trip and also the user would have high expectation for the services that (s)he pay good money for.

You will have to download from web all necessary data like airfare, the distance, rates for the type of cars needed, temperature of the place, hotel charges, etc needed for creating the spreadsheet.
