Kayak.com announced the launch of TravelPost.com, laying claim to be the most comprehensive hotel information site on the Web. TravelPost.com presents hotel reviews, content and rates on more than 140,000 hotels from over 200 travel sites in one easy-to-use display, Kayak.com says. “For the first time, consumers can visit one website for all the information needed to make an informed decision on their hotel booking. TravelPost.com content includes detailed descriptions, photos, maps and reviews from travelers and professionals, as well as tight integration with Kayak.com’s industry leading rate search.
“Consumers and hoteliers are woefully underserved by websites like TripAdvisor.com, who appear to care more about their bottom lines than providing relevant content and a seamless experience,” said Steve Hafner, CEO and co-founder, Kayak.com. “So we built a website that combines comprehensive search functionality, a clean, uncluttered display and unbiased results that are not auctioned off to the highest bidder. The combined power of Kayak.com and TravelPost.com will change the way people search and book hotels and reshape competition in the online travel space.”
Features include a comprehensive, objective search capability, Kayak.com says. “ With its advanced meta-search engine, TravelPost.com is the only hotel site to aggregate rates, availability, content and reviews from more than 200 travel sites including directly from hotel brands such as Hilton Hotels Corporation, Best Western International and Morgans Hotel Group; from online travel agencies such as Orbitz and Hotels.com; and from hotel review sites like Yahoo!Travel, Bed&Breakfast.com,IgoUgo.com , Perfect Escapes, Citysearch.com and Epinions.com.“
TravelPost.com will enjoy the rapid rate of innovation that Kayak.com has demonstrated over the past five years, the company says, with hotel content providers from around the globe to be added each month. Several new tools are scheduled to launch over the next few months, rolling out on a weekly basis, Kayak.com says.
