TravelDepot Launched for Independent Travel

A new service has been launched for British travellers,
offering low prices and online booking for holiday accommodation, travel
insurance, airport hotels, airport parking and lounges from a single
website.TravelDepot, launched at the end of July 2004, will now provide both leisure
and business travellers with a one-stop shop for easy booking of the
additional travel arrangements that can make independent booking so

Managing Director of TravelDepot, Gareth Robinson, said: “In developing
TravelDepot we listened to a lot of feedback from regular travellers who
said that while they prefer the individual control provided by independent
booking, the time taken when researching suitable hotels or trying to
arrange access to airport lounges can be well beyond the benefit received.

“This has been the key behind the launch of TravelDepot.  Once travellers
have booked their flights, they can come to us for all of the other
elements.  The prices we offer are among the best on the market, and all of
our services are with reputable companies, ensuring customers of the highest
quality, without any of the hassle of searching endless websites.”

TravelDepot features over 12,000 hotels around the world, including
properties in Singapore, Mexico, the UAE and throughout Europe.  The range
of hotels is suitable for both leisure and business travel, with a broad
choice of prices and locations.

For travellers who want to start their trip off in style TravelDepot offers
a choice of 26 lounges at 14 airports around the UK.  Prices start from
£16.99 per person.


Airport parking is offered at all major UK airports, including Heathrow,
Manchester, Cardiff, Leeds-Bradford, Belfast, Glasgow and Edinburgh, with
savings of up to 45% off the normal price.  Also bookable online are Park &
Stay options, combining low-cost airport parking and an airport hotel.

For peace of mind TravelDepot’s comprehensive insurance starts from just £1
a day, with options for UK, European and worldwide cover.  Medical, Baggage,
theft and cancellation charges are included as standard, and there’s a
policy for European cover with winter sports included - all bookable through
the website.

Robinson, added: “Travellers don’t have the time to spend hours trawling the
web for the extra components that are key to a holiday.  By bringing
everything together online TravelDepot makes it easy, and we are confident a
growing number of holidaymakers and business travellers will come to view
TravelDepot as a vital travel resource.”
