STA Travel selects Endeavour Holiday Search

Travel announced today that STA Travel have selected Endeavour Holiday Search for its new
Hot Packages holiday offering.

Hot Packages will provide SITA travel staff with access to mainstream package holidays which can be matched with a range of
criteria, rather than simply searching on destination and price. The Endeavour Holiday Search includes main summer and winter sun
programmes for the major UK tour operators, including late availability offers.

Endeavour was one of the first services designed specifically for the travel industry professional to enable faster, more accurate provision of travel information to the customer. Operating within Telewest`s dedicated travel extranet, Endeavour consistently delivers extensive Internet and e-commerce capabilities to the industry.
Keith Webber
, Head of Sales & Marketing, Telewest Travel said: “The
youth market is probably the most internet-savvy generation and tend to
be comfortable with making travel bookings over the Internet.  However,
it can take a lot of effort to match up different pieces of information
from different sources.  By going to STA Travel, customers will be able
to find out exactly what they are booking and consultants will be able
to match holidays to what the customer wants at the best available

Litsa Constantinou, Managing Director, STA Travel UK Division said: “The
Endeavour Search service adds value to our Hot Packages product as our
consultants will be able to provide much more accurate information to
our customers about what`s on offer than they would probably be able to
find out themselves. Our ultimate aim is to ensure that customers are
happy with their choice of holiday and that we have met their needs.”
Independent resort descriptions are provided through DG&G(tm)
Resort Information, while both resort and hotel details from tour
operator brochures are searchable in an electronic format.
