Now, both tour planners seeking to charter motorcoaches and travel suppliers seeking to increase their share of group travel business have new opportunities to do so thanks to the innovations of these industry-leaders.
Visitors to LeisureGroupTravel.com, GroupTravelDirectory.com and PrepTraveler.com now have access to the BusRates.com extensive database of 5,000 charter coach companies, thus making the search for affordable, reliable coaches as easy as a few mouse clicks. “What’s unique about BusRates.com is that it is a true directory of motorcoach charter companies,” said Jeffrey Gayduk, President of Premier Tourism Marketing. “BusRates.com doesn’t add a mark-up to charter rates like the online charter coach quoting brokers do. By using this service, our readers connect directly with charter companies - saving time, and money.”
Additionally, visitors to the BusRates.com site can access over 5,000 group-friendly vendors that are prominently displayed on the GroupTravelDirectory.com database search engine. Mark Greer, president of BusRates.com stated, “Needless to say, most of our customers who are chartering a motorcoach are seeking other travel-related services, such as hotel accommodations, attraction tickets, theaters and casinos. So it’s a natural that we provide resources through a trusted source like GroupTravelDirectory.com.” Additionally, visitors to BusRates.com can subscribe to any Premier Tourism Marketing magazine or e-newsletter through a link on their resource page.
Combined, Premier Tourism Marketing and BusRates.com dominate the online group travel industry in terms of traffic. According to Alexa.com, BusRates.com is the number one ranked site in terms of traffic for the motorcoach charter industry, and Premier Tourism Marketing websites rank number one, two and four in the group travel publishing market.
