Frequently Asked Questions

How can I sign up to receive the export?


Contact techsupport@signaturetravelnetwork.com, who will discuss the required information with you and add you to the export recipient list.

Can I receive the export data by email?


Originally, yes. But the data files have grown so large (over 15MB when compressed in ZIP format) that it is advisable to request transfer by FTP.

What time can I retrieve my data export file from Signature?


The daily process completes every morning at 10:30 AM Eastern Time and at this time may be downloaded. If you have opted to retrieve your file via FTP, the file will be delivered by this time.

Can I retrieve the file via FTP from Signature?

Yes, you may provide a host name or IP along with a password and we’ll send the file daily.

Can I obtain the photos of ships, hotels, and destinations that are available on Signature’s Intranet and consumer sites?


No. Signature Travel Network has an exclusive license to use the photographic content on its site. Due to copyright laws, members wishing to use certain photographs must make individual arrangements with the owners of the digital rights to those images.

Can I use a Web Service to retrieve individual offer/product details?


Signature plans to offer this service in the future, but at this time our members have expressed a preference for the full set of data in a format that is easy to import into a local database accessible from their own servers.
