BERLIN, September 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Travelzoo® (NASDAQ: TZOO), a global publisher of exclusive offers and experiences, is well known for the deals it negotiates with thousands of hand-picked hotels around the globe. In the past, members who wanted to experience one of Travelzoo's hotel deals on specific dates would have to research flight options themselves. Now, when a member finds a preferred hotel deal, Travelzoo can also provide real-time flight information, allowing members to compare the total price of accommodation and flights for the dates they want to travel. This information opens up a new world of travel possibilities for its members.
Inspiring members to explore further
Imagine that, as a Travelzoo member, you are interested in a hotel deal in Madeira, and want to stay during the Christmas season. After selecting a hotel, you will find the combined price for the hotel and flights in an easy-to-use calendar. You can also use the calendar to check the prices of all flights that match the deal's availability from all nearby airports and find the one that suits you best. It even provides information about extras such as airport transfers, insurance and car rental.
With all this information now available through Travelzoo, you do not need to look elsewhere to make your holiday plans. This will make it much easier for you to reach and enjoy Travelzoo's wide range of inspiring hotel offers, anywhere in the world.
With the launch of this new feature, members who find an attractive hotel offer can spontaneously decide to take a trip, even to a long-haul destination, as the lengthy flight search becomes obsolete. Members can use the local knowledge and global connections of Travelzoo's deal experts around the world to explore an even wider set of destinations and travel opportunities.
Members embrace the new offering
Since the first day of launch, this new technology has been immediately valued by Travelzoo members in the German market. Members that were shown the calendar with flight information made five times as many bookings as members that were given just a hotel-only deal.
"We are happy to see the encouraging response from our members to this new offering," commented Christian Smart, General Manager of Travelzoo in Germany. "We believe it will empower our members to explore the world easily and confidently."
After receiving the positive results in Germany, Travelzoo plans to roll out this new offering in the UK, Spain and France quickly.
