announced a major expansion designed to revolutionise the breadth of its travel-product choices in Asia.
Starting this month, Hutchison-Priceline will introduce a new range of discounted, published-price travel products alongside its innovative Name Your Own Price model.
The addition of retail products means Hutchison-Priceline customers will be presented with two options that deliver significant travel discounts. They can get the greatest savings via the Name Your Own Price model, rated by Yahoo! Internet Life magazine as the Best Bargain Booker on the Web. Or they can take advantage of even more choices through the retail options chosen for budget-sensitive deals.
The advantage of the Name Your Own Price model is that in less-busy travel periods throughout the year, customers can bargain hard and get exceptional savings for the unsold seats and rooms provided by Hutchison-Priceline’s 34 airline and 9,000 hotel partners around the world.
Hutchison-Priceline announced the first of its planned retail products, car rentals, via a special partnership with the Hertz Corporation last month. This month one of the world’s leading hotel reservation providers, octopustravel.com Limited, also will join the fold. Further travel-related products and services will be added during 2003, the company said.
