Scoop has partnered with the Asia-Pacific Travel Search Engine, Bezurk.com to launch a new travel search engine service for New Zealanders on Scoop.co.nz.
Under the agreement, Bezurk.com will give Scoop.co.nz readers the opportunity to search and compare travel deals across airlines, online travel agencies, hotel chains and hotel aggregators websites quickly at one easy-to-use service.
Research shows that an average traveller visits 3-4 websites to compare prices and products before transacting. Bezurk’s travel search engine allows a user to save both time and money by automating and greatly expanding this comparison shopping process.
“Bezurk’s supplier neutrality allows them to deliver an unbiased comparison of travel products which fits perfectly with the philosophy of our independent news service. We are delighted to be partnering with Bezurk.com and providing our readers with the ability to find the best deals across multiple airline and hotel websites at one time,” said Wade Bishop, Scoop’s Business Development Manager. “Bezurk’s travel search product will be localised for Scoop to include New Zealand-based travel companies so that our readers are presented with the best of both NZ and globally based travel suppliers..”
“Scoop is one of NZ’s largest online news resources and attracts a high-value professional audience who are both internet savvy and frequent travellers.” said Craig Hewett, Founder & Chief Marketing Officer, Bezurk.com. “We’re delighted to be working with Scoop to introduce our travel search engine to a New Zealand audience.
The service allows users to feel confident that after visiting just one site, they have found the best possible deal. It delivers an incredible range of real-time, detailed information on price, availability, scheduling and more. Search results are presented in a simple, easy-to-use interface, and supported by leading-edge “AJAX” powered sorting and filtering tools. Because Bezurk isn’t a travel agent and doesn’t sell travel themselves users can be confident that the results they see are unbiased.
