“We are very pleased with the positive response we have had from the regional online consumer market to myTravelChannel.com. This financial year we’ve experienced a marked increase in activity and online bookings, contrary to belief of traditional travel providers that the online travel market will not work in the Region” commented Simon Lewis, Manager, eVentures. “Gaining the consumer’s trust in using their credit cards online in this region has been a challenge for us.
