Fresh and contemporary -
hotel.info has a new homepage and booking dialogue
London, 29 September 2009 - hotel.info, the free online hotel reservation service with more than 210,000 hotels worldwide, has unveiled its new web design and optimised booking dialogue online.
The new hotel.info homepage has a fresh, contemporary look that is both cleaner and clearer than before. The main emphasis continues to be placed on the hotel search tool, which is given due prominence in terms of size and position. Visitors to the site who are looking for hotels can now jump directly from the homepage to the best-rated or favourite hotels and destinations as selected by hotel.info’s own customers. A separate "News & Tips" section provides customers with interesting information, such as how the hotels are classified, special offers and prize draws.
But not just the homepage is new; the equally important booking dialogue has also undergone an overhaul, to make it easier to use. The application displays the relevant hotel information (description, images, map and guest reviews) in a clearly structured tabbed format. hotel.info has also fine-tuned its booking confirmation, which it now sends out as an HTML e-mail that presents the important information in this message in a much clearer format to customers.
Warini Munshi, Managing Director at hotel.info hotel booking Ltd., is delighted with the new fresh look of the hotel.info design: "Naturally we really like the new design. However, our core focus has always been on making sure our customers are happy, and many of the changes are based on their feedback. Design is just one of many aspects in which we have to reflect customer wishes, though. But if the customer uses hotel.info to make a booking, it means we have got it right!"
www.hotel.info is a free online hotel reservation service for corporate and private customers. The service offers more than 210,000 hotels for electronic bookings around the world. Customers booking via hotel.info achieve significantly better prices in comparison with other booking channels. In addition, hotel.info shows all available room prices for each hotel, so that the customer can always select the cheapest or most suitable room price. All bookings via hotel.info are transferred simultaneously, securely and directly to the respective hotel’s computer. This guarantees the unique integration of each hotel’s own reservation systems (CRS or PMS) and hotel.info’s own reservation system myRES into the hotel.info unified user interface.
At hotel.info, customers seeking hotel rooms can base their decisions to book a room not only on the core information such as room price and hotel facilities, but also on the hotel reviews and ratings submitted by around 1 million hotel guests from around the world. Compared with existing rating portals, hotel.info customers can rely on 100% genuine hotel ratings, since only customers who have booked and recently stayed in each hotel are asked for their opinion. Once a customer has selected an offer, the hotel is presented for direct online booking at attractive conditions, in line with the hotel.info "Check & Book" claim.
