Travelers Advantage Delivers Competitive Rates Online

Travelers Advantage has delivered
a lower online price for travel to 50 top destinations eight out of 10
times during the first 30 weeks of 2004 when compared to Orbitz,
Priceline, Expedia, and Travelocity, the membership based travel service
said today. Travelers Advantage based the claim on weekly comparison of
total air transportation costs for round trip flights between more than 50
frequently booked pairs of cities.

“TravelersAdvantage.com delivered the lowest purchasable price to
consumers 80 percent of the time during the first 30 weeks of 2004,” said
Travelers Advantage Vice President Julia Ryan. “Each week we compared
ourselves to Orbitz, Priceline, Expedia, and Travelocity for travel
between cities that include New York and London; Denver and Los Angeles;
Los Angeles and Denver; Newark, NJ and Las Vegas; and Newark and Orlando,
FL.

“Our price comparison is based on the actual price consumers pay,” she
added. “We included airport fees, taxes and other fees as well as the
service fees imposed by the competing travel agencies to present an
accurate comparison of the full cost of flying between two cities.”

As part of its comprehensive comparison of air transportation costs to the
most popular cities, the company has launched a new Travelers Advantage
Monthly Travel Monitor that will compare average airfare prices and
showcase the top travel destinations. Look for the first issue of travel
