Independent operator Sunvil Holidays today launches its newly-designed website (www.sunvil.co.uk)
offering live holiday availability and a contemporary new look for 2011.
Says Alexis Josephides, product development executive at Sunvil: “Sunvil offers a myriad of flexible holiday itineraries throughout Europe and in Latin America and we require a uniform site that clearly reflects what our Discovery, Holidays and Traveller brands can provide. The new design is now consistent and much easier to navigate – even full itineraries, including specific property details, can be viewed without clicking onto a different page.
“Unlike many other independent tour operators, it will also be possible to book many of our holidays on the site,” he
Designed and built by travel website specialists Zolv, the new site uses the latest technology to deliver a fast web channel to meet the increasing demands of agents and customers.
Olly Wenn, Zolv’s Managing Director, comments: “We have worked very closely with Sunvil to create a richer, more intuitive user experience, with new functionality including an easy-to-use booking engine, accurate information and location maps, flight filters that only show available travel dates, and a much-improved presentation of special offers and late availability.”
Destinations bookable online include Greece, Cyprus, the Azores, Madeira, the Faroe Islands and Portugal. New sections include ‘News and Updates’, detailing the latest news from Sunvil, and ‘Holiday Ideas’, where it is possible to search under various categories.
A ‘blogs & podcasts’ section will also provide enticing holiday ideas from Sunvil’s expert staff and travel agents will be able to access a password-protected, dedicated area for pricing up itineraries and booking trips.
A new microsite to mark the launch of Sunvil Discovery’s new charter flight to Beja, located in the heart of the unspoilt Alentejo region, is also now live. The Real Alentejo site provides a closer look at this little-known region of Portugal.
