WAYN adds city content

WAYN.com is partnering with WCITIES to provide its users with travel and destination content online and on the mobile.
The agreement will provide WAYN’s 9 million members with access to unrivalled city content providing information for more than 325 cities in 70 countries world-wide with city guides including events, attractions, shopping, essentials, dining, and nightlife. Members will be able to fully research a destination in advance whether it is for a business trip, romantic getaway or a round-the-world excursion. Thanks to WCITIES unique product offerings, WAYN users can not only find out about local events, nightlife spots and where to eat or stay, but they can also gain access to rich destination content for key destinations and places around the world.

Co-founder and Co-CEO of WAYN.com, Peter Ward remarked “WCITIES is one of the largest online travel content providers with the ability to translate the content into multiple languages so we’re excited to be working with them. By integrating their travel and lifestyle related content into WAYN, our users will get the low down on where to stay and what to do, whilst also being able to add their reviews and ratings and even book tickets for events and activities in advance.”

Fraser Campbell, Vice-President at WCITIES, commented “WAYN.com’s re-launch of their Travel offering is something we are happy to be a part of. WAYN.com has a diverse membership base and we are enthusiastic to be working with them in their evolution as the next generation travel portal.”

WCITIES joins a number of other high profile partners announced recently by WAYN including hostelworld.co.uk (hostel and budget accommodation); lastminute.com (hotels); Apollo Travel Direct (offline holiday concierge service); and toptable.co.uk (restaurants). The new Travel offering will augment the already strong travel and trips offering on WAYN, where members are already able to log their past, present and future trips, share them with friends and add content to their trip profiles, with the ability to add and browse reviews and other user generated content on key destinations and places around the world.
