Over the past year, LastMinutetravel.com has been recognized by savvy travelers as the best site for last-minute deals because of its millions of great offers, many of which are exclusive to LastMinuteTravel.com; its instant and easy to use booking feature; and the fact that there are no punitive booking fees added on by the site.
“Our unique business model allows us to pass on tremendous savings directly to the consumer,” said Alan Greenberg, CEO and chairman of the Last Minute Travel(r) Network. “These savings are found in both our low travel prices, and by the fact that we do not add on additional site related booking fees that are common on many other online travel sites. With the best selection and the best prices, we have become the most competitive online travel site. It`s simply smart shopping to visit LastMinuteTravel.com before booking anywhere else,” added Greenberg.
