Dublin, Ireland (PressExposure) July 07, 2007 -- Started in the beginning of this year, the electronic travel portal travel-betterdeals.com offers a range of different holiday offers. On the site, users can combine their personal holiday package from a selection of car rentals, flights, hotels, ferries, weekend breaks, etc., which has led to many positive user feedbacks shortly after the beginning of this year's holiday season.
The developers of travel-betterdeals.com pursue the goal of enhancing electronically provided travel services, so that these become equivalent to the service provided by stationary agencies. The selection of different ingredients for customized travelling is the means for this aim. Correspondingly, customizable search masks support the specification of the users' desires for each section. Their underlying search engines list the results in tables that allow a comparison of the main characteristics as well as prices.
First user feedbacks show that the makers indeed are on the way to substitute the services of stationary agencies. "Your site is better than a catalogue for catalogues only show the range of offers from just one provider. Further, I do not like to be pushed by travel agents that make so well meant suggestions, persuading me to choose a holiday package that I do not want. I really appreciate your services, as you do make suggestions but without any pressure or preference for a special provider", wrote Tim B. (31) from Birmingham.
As the marketing department's spokesman stated during last Friday's online press conference, similar feedbacks are quite common. Therefore, the developers are pleased with their success but are also thinking about further means of comparison and suggestion. Videoconferences that involve the most attractive hotels and links to webcams in highly demanded places are in planning. To support their decisions, the makers of travel-betterdeals.com motivate consumers to freely express their wants concerning electronic travel guides, so that the best ideas can be taken into account when the portal will be re-launched.
