NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelzoo Inc. (NASDAQ: TZOO), a global Internet media company, launches its online Holiday Gift Guide today to help take the stress out of holiday shopping and satisfy increasing demand for memorable experiences as gifts. A recent survey* of 25,000 Travelzoo subscribers revealed the notorious holiday sweater as the least favorite gift of the season, while more than 60% would welcome an experience as a gift this year.



To help holiday shoppers find the perfect, original gift, Travelzoo curated a simple and easy-to-navigate Holiday Gift Guide, packed with unique experiences, including spa days at the Four Seasons or Bliss spas, romantic getaways, and dining at Michelin-starred restaurants.

"Travelzoo's Holiday Gift Guide is an exclusive list of high-quality experiences that are easy to purchase," says Phil Salcedo, Travelzoo Publisher. "Each gift has been negotiated by Travelzoo's Deal Experts, so gift-givers can expect exceptional savings of 30%-50% without sacrificing the wow factor."

Each experience can be sent as an e-gift or mailed as a high-quality gift certificate. Any gift purchase on the Travelzoo web or mobile sites is supported by Travelzoo's award-winning customer service team and includes a 60-day exchange policy.

The subscriber survey also revealed that more than 51% of people are likely to return many of the physical products they receive this holiday season. In addition to the holiday sweater, knick-knacks and cosmetics topped the least-wanted list.
