Discounted Corporate Travel is Focus at

21st Jul 2004

Launched this week, offers businesses and their employees up to
70% off group and individual rates on thousands of hotel rooms, airfares,
car rentals and cruises.That’s significantly cheaper than some of the big names in online travel
- but the beauty of, according to company founder and president
Charles Dunbar, is its simplicity.

“There is no special program for businesses to join, and we don’t force
our corporate clients to set up complicated co-branded Web sites,” Dunbar
explained. “Even smaller companies can take advantage of the significant
savings on domestic and international travel at”

Trips can be booked through the site’s secure server or via 24-hour toll-
free telephone customer service. A discount code allows businesses and
individuals around the world to get the lowest possible rates when they
make their reservations.

For businesses sending several employees to conferences, training or on
other group trips, the site offers special rates on reservations for five
or more hotel rooms. And when the day’s work is done, the
Destination Guide gives travelers the lowdown on local restaurants,
entertainment, nightlife, attractions and more.

Along with the Destination Guide, also has an innovative
road trip planning tool and deals on cruises and vacation rentals, making
the site a top choice for leisure travelers as well. To ensure travelers
enjoy their vacations to the fullest, will soon display
customer reviews for each hotel. Add those features to the
industry-leading travel discounts and it equals a value-added option for
employers wanting to beef up their employee benefit packages at no extra
cost, said Dunbar.


“It costs employers nothing to let their employees know about, and in doing so, they can potentially save their employees
hundreds of dollars on personal travel,” Dunbar said. “Between the
discount the company receives on corporate travel and the morale boost its
employees experience when saving money on vacations, it’s a win-win
situation for any business.”
