What is it?

This method returns Rail offers for the inbound portion of a round trip. Note: An outbound offer ID is required to return the appropriate inbound offers.

The round trip shopping process consists of two steps - one for outbound offers, and one for inbound offers.

Returned inbound offers have the same structure of information found using the POST /v2/rail/offers/journeys method.

Why use it?

Use this method to get inbound offers from Rail vendors for a round trip.

This is the second step in the two-step process of requesting round trip offers. These offers are then used to create orders as part of the POST /v2/rail/orders method.

How it works

  1. Specify two search criteria in the request - one for an outbound trip and the second for an inbound trip. The outbound offerId must be specified in the request. Note: This is similar to the POST /v2/rail/offers/journeys method, except you will provide the outbound and inbound criteria, instead of a single criteria.
  2. The response returns only inbound offers presented in the same way as the POST /v2/rail/offers/journeys method.
