Global internet media company Travelzoo has launched its first iPhone app in Canada, giving Canadians on-the-go access to its outstanding travel, entertainment and local deals. The launch of the free iPhone app coincides with Travelzoo‟s fifth anniversary in Canada.
The new Canadian version of the Travelzoo iPhone app comes on the heels of successful launches in the United States and the United Kingdom, where it received positive reviews in both the Los Angeles Times and The Guardian newspapers, and has been downloaded more than 125,000 times. The app also has a 5-star rating in the Apple App Store in those countries.
“The new Travelzoo iPhone app gives users instant, on-the-go access to all of our outstanding deals,” said Lara Barlow, Country Manager in Canada. “For example, if you are sitting in a coffee shop in Toronto and using the app today, you can instantly find and book VIP tickets for the Maple Leafs or a luxury Caribbean vacation.”
The new Travelzoo iPhone app, which was named “Consumer App of the Week‟ by The Guardian, includes five main features such as ‘local deals’, ‘deals in other countries’, ‘top 20’, and ‘inspire me’ - all of which are accessible from the home screen:
The launch of the Travelzoo iPhone app comes as Travelzoo celebrates five years in Canada. Travelzoo Canada now has 1.3 million subscribers and more than 500 Canadian travel and entertainment advertisers, including Air Canada, Cirque du Soleil, Sunwing Travel Group and Delta Hotels and Resorts. In 2011, the Travelzoo website (www.travelzoo.ca) ranks among the top ten travel websites in Canada according to Experian Hitwise.
