Online Dating Service Launches New Travel Site

Online dating service Match.com
today
announced the launch of its new travel site, MatchTravel.com

The new site
offers singles vacation and adventure opportunities, commonly featuring an
itinerary of social interactions facilitated by a host and within a
gender-balanced group of single vacationers, in locations around the world.
MatchTravel.com partners with Expedia.com, the
world`s leading online travel service, leveraging synergies through their
mutual affiliation with USA Interactive, and with leading group packagers
including Club Med, Contiki Holidays and Club Getaway to offer single
travelers exclusive vacations only available through the service.
 
“The launch of MatchTravel.com affirms our commitment to leverage the
strength of the Match.com brand and our access to a global community of single
adults to more aggressively focus on vertical growth opportunities,” said Tim
Sullivan, president of Match.com.  “While Match.com has been offering off-line
events and travel opportunities to our members for several years, the launch
of this dedicated travel site and our growing number of top-tier strategic
partners in the vacation industry, including our relationship with sister
company Expedia, distinctly extends the Match.com brand into the travel
segment.”
 
Vacations booked through MatchTravel.com will typically involve groups of
50 to more than 300 singles who are seeking host-facilitated and casual
opportunities to interact with other singles while enjoying the numerous
benefits of quality vacation packages.  Information about upcoming
MatchTravel.com vacations, including a Caribbean Cruise, a Winter Windjammer
sailing trip, a cycling trip in Ireland and a hiking adventure in Utah, can be
found at the www.matchtravel.com
Web site. 
Singles interested in booking a
vacation click on a link to a vacation partner`s site where they will receive
trip, reservation and payment information.  MatchTravel.com will offer
diverse, group vacation opportunities to travelers, including a Fall Foliage
cruise for seniors from New York to Nova Scotia and six upcoming Club Med
vacations in Cancun and Turks and Caicos, beginning with the first scheduled
vacation getaway for singles in Cancun from July 25 to 28.
