In the latest issue of PC World magazine, travelbyus has received top honours in the category of “hottest sites for online booking” in its search for the best travel deals on the web.
PC World`s search for the best travel web sites included such well-known names as Expedia.com and Priceline.com. In a “Features Comparison” by site, they rated three categories: Ease of Use, Booking Flexibility and Finding Lowest Fares. The travelbyus web site came out on top being the only site to receive a “good” or “excellent” rating in all three areas. travelbyus outscored all the sites for booking flexibility, receiving the only “excellent” rating award in that category.
“Because of the multiple destinations ... several sites couldn`t handle my ticketing request ... so I focused on Expedia and travelbyus. Here, the ITA Software that travelbyus uses showed its value.”—PC World, June 2001 “We have said for some time now that a powerful Search Engine is vital to the success of the next generation of online travel sites,” said Bill Kerby, CEO of travelbyus. “Not only does the PC World article validate this, but it proves ITA Software was the right choice. Simply put, it is today the best Search Engine for low fares and complex itineraries.”
The PC World article focused solely on the airfare component of travel and travelbyus, but points out that the travelbyus web site offers much, much more. In fact, a visit to the travelbyus Web site provides practically anything a traveler could need, including detailed destination guides, cruise product and information, proprietary value vacation packages, special travel deals and promotions and an array of travel tools from maps to a currency converter to a foreign language audio phrase guide.
