Opodo has entered into a preferred partnership with leading independent travel company Cosmos Holidays to launch a new holiday service on its www.opodo.co.uk site.
The new service allows customers to easily book a wide range of great value holidays from the Cosmos product range, including long haul, last minute deals and in particular at this time of year - trips to Lapland. By offering much richer content including photos, maps, weather, local area information, restaurants, events and activities the new service is much more intuitive, reflecting how customers actually want to buy their travel products online. They can now search by airport, destination or region; can stipulate the length of time they want to go for - whether it be one week, two weeks or the exact number of days; can input the star rating, room type and board basis they are looking for, or even choose from a number of special preferences including Family Friendly, Health Facilities, Seaside and Sports Facilities.
Chris Roe, Head of Tours at Opodo commented, “We are delighted to be working with Cosmos Holidays as our preferred tour operating partner. Research we carried out indicates that the wide range of excellent value products offered by Cosmos meets the needs of our UK customers. The content rich information on the site provides them with in-depth details about regions, resorts and hotels, even down to recommended restaurants, bars, nightspots and weather data, all resulting in a enhanced booking experience.”
Andy Washington, Cosmos Holidays’ Sales Director commented “We are very pleased to be working with such a well known and respected on-line travel supplier as Opodo. It seemed like a natural link to offer our broad range of product through Opodo and to become their preferred supplier. Opodo customers can book with confidence knowing they will be travelling with the leading independent Tour Operator in the UK, with over 45 years of experience. By working in conjunction with Opodo to distribute our products we are offering the consumer a fantastic range of products, and at the same time creating an exciting and creative partnership.”
