travelFUSION to offer online travel comparison service on Virgin.net

travelFUSION is bringing its innovative travel tools to online users at Virgin.net, the UK`s No.1 entertainment and leisure service online.
Virgin.net consumers will be able to use the comparison service to come up with different journey options by scheduled and low cost airlines, car, train, bus and ferry. Powered by travelFUSION’s multi-modal Comparison Travel Shopper, this service will greatly increase the travel planning experience for all travellers.
travelFUSION offers the world’s first location-based journey planner comparing all modes of transport with the best fares to get from A to B. travelFUSION`s network of merchants comprises some of Europe`s best known travel companies including British Airways, TheTrainLine, Swissair, P&O Stena Line, and National Express.
Available from the ‘Getting There’ section at Virgin.net (www.virgin.net/travel/shop/gettingthere/) travelFUSION’s smart location engines show the alternative airports and railway/bus stations, which are close to users’ preferred start and end locations, rather than just displaying results for exact matches. Thus for a request for a trip from London to Parma, for example, travelFUSION can retrieve a single ticket from Virgin Express to Milan for £77.10, 108 km from Parma.
Rhona Fairbairn, Head of Ecommerce at Virgin.net commented: “travelFUSION further enhances our travel channel with this one-stop facility which not only gives customers a variety of travel options for getting to their destination but also lets them purchase their tickets online at the same time.”
Moshe Rafiah, CEO of travelFUSION, commented: “We are delighted to receive this endorsement of our mobility and location-based services from Virgin.net, one of the leading brands in the UK online space. We look forward to serving Virgin users with excellent services to enrich their travel planning experience.”
