Washington`s ABC 7 News (WJLA) Partners With Travelago

Washington`s ABC 7 News WJLA (www.wjla.com) and Travelago (www.travelago.com) have announced a new relationship that will deliver more than 1,800 streaming travel videos and destination information to WJLA`s Web site.
The partnership allows for seamless private label integration between Travelago`s online video destination guide and WJLA`s Web site. Visitors to WJLA`s site will be able to watch thousands of videos on more than 850 top travel destinations around the world, as well as find information on hotels, restaurants, attractions and activities in each destination.
WJLA is a member of the Allbritton Communications Company and broadcasts live news, weather and entertainment to Washington, DC, the nation`s 8th largest broadcast market.
“This partnership gives WJLA the power to provide its site users with thousands of travel videos and extensive travel news and information,” said Jay Mitchell, Vice-President and Editor-In-Chief of Travelago.
Visitors to Travelago or its partner Web sites can watch 1,800 streaming videos, gather comprehensive information on hotels, restaurants and attractions in each destination, and make their reservations online using one of Travelago`s many booking engine partners. Travelago lets people feel confident about booking travel on the Web by allowing them to “see where they`re going before they go.”
“Travelago is the world`s largest streaming travel video content provider,” said Bobel. “We provide the most comprehensive travel library on the Internet - at the highest quality, using state-of-the-art technology.
“With 10 percent of all worldwide Internet page views dedicated to travel and destination research, Travelago is uniquely positioned as a quality business and leisure travel-planning tool,” said Bobel. “Once a traveler watches a Travelago destination video that features a particular hotel, restaurant, attraction or activity, that person is 70 percent more likely to book a video-related activity over something that just has a simple text listing. Our videos turn lookers into bookers.”
