Travelocity New Hotel Shopping Engine

With Travelocity`s revamped hotel shopping engine, customers can now
tailor their search for a hotel in virtually any area, whether their main
focus is price, amenities, or property ratings. The enhanced hotel search
options from Travelocity(R) make finding the hotel tailor-made for
customers` individual tastes even easier and faster than before while
helping price-sensitive travelers stay within a certain budget.

The upgraded hotel shopping path also features a unique “information grid”
with traveler reviews, hotel descriptions and photos, amenities and world-
renowned “AAA” diamond ratings. In addition, shoppers can now sort hotels
by price, rating, name, and distance from a certain geographical location.
Travelocity users will also find a marked improvement in search response
times.
“Travelocity has always been committed to improving the shopping
experience based on our customers` feedback, and this is definitely the
case with the enhancements to our hotel shopping engine,” said Josh
Feuerstein, vice president, hotels for Travelocity. “We want to make it as
easy and useful as possible so that whenever customers shop our site, they
do it with a sense of confidence and satisfaction.”

These user-friendly enhancements will be clear, comprehensive and time-
saving as well—hotel searches at Travelocity are now significantly
faster and less complicated.

“With tools like TotalPrice(SM) for car rentals and TotalCruise(SM),
Travelocity shoppers have the flexibility and options to help them make
better, more informed travel decisions,” Feuerstein said. “We`re thrilled
to have broadened this philosophy to our hotel shoppers as well.”
