What is it?

This method is used to return Rail offers for the outbound portion of a round trip. Note: The round trip shopping process consists of two steps - one for outbound offers, and one for inbound offers.

Returned outbound offers have the same structure of information found using the POST /v1/rail/offers/journeys method.

The selected outbound offer offerId is used in the second step of the round trip shopping process to obtain an inbound offer.

Why use it?

Use this method to get outbound 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 of an inbound trip. Note: This is similar to the POST /v2/rail/offers/journeys method, except you will provide outbound and inbound criteria, instead of a single criteria.
  2. The response returns only outbound offers presented in the same way as the POST /v2/rail/offers/journeys method.
