ByeByeNOW.com, the Internet’s largest provider of leisure travel packages, today announced that it will launch its Web site, www.byebyenow.com, later this month. The company’s Internet technology supports a unique distribution model that caters to the evolving shopping preferences of leisure travelers by offering them a full-featured Web site, 24-hour call centers and branded franchise travel locations.
ByeByeNOW.com will offer one-stop shopping for special interest vacation packages, such as skiing, adventure travel, fishing, golf, yachting, casino gambling and honeymoons, as well as a comprehensive database of travel and destination information and virtual tours of cruise ships, hotels and destinations. Individual travel products, including airline tickets, car rentals and hotels, will also be available on the Web site.
“We’re aware of the fact that not everyone is comfortable booking a vacation on the Internet,” said Thomas Conlan, founder, ByeByeNOW.com. “That’s why our total approach to customer service works so well—if you want to research your vacation on our Web site but still have questions, our call centers are accessible 24 hours a day. If you prefer a travel agent, you can visit a ByeByeNOW.com Travel franchise.”
“The wide variety of vacations and products, travel planning resources and information found on our Web site is also available to our travel agencies through a high-speed Internet connection,” said Conlan. “This Internet infrastructure, combined with a well-branded name, provides ByeByeNOW.com’s franchises with a distinct competitive advantage over other agents.”
ByeByeNOW.com plans to build and maintain brand awareness by implementing a multi-million dollar brand marketing campaign, including print, television advertising and the Internet, as well as television programming, during the first quarter of next year.
