Last minute now longer: RatesToGo.co.nz extends booking period to 28 days
Auckland, 13 May 2008 – Growing competition among online travel accommodation providers is giving spur-of-the-moment travellers more time to get the cheapest hotel deals.
Leading online last-minute hotel reservation website RatesToGo.co.nz has extended its 21-day booking period to 28-days, providing the website’s 2.8 million monthly visitors with more advanced notice of last minute hotel bargains.
RatesToGo.co.nz managing director Chloe Lim said she expected the extended booking window to appeal to business and leisure travellers who had in the past eschewed last minute bookings in favour of early booking confirmation of first choice accommodation.
“Not all travellers have the luxury of leaving their bookings to the last minute,” she said.
“Last minute bookings generally appeal to people who book on generic attributes, rather than by preferred suppliers. The extended booking window broadens our appeal by offering forward planning customers a better chance of booking their first choice hotel at a bargain rate."
RatesToGo.co.nz offers over 15,000 hotels in 1,700 cities across 75 countries, at savings of up to 70 percent.
Unlike most other online accommodation providers, RatesToGo.co.nz is membership based and offers rebates on website bookings. The company last month launched a new rewards programme, called DreamClub, offering users a rebate of up eight percent on website bookings.
RatesToGo.co.nz is operated by the HotelClub.co.nz. Part of the Orbitz Worldwide Group, HotelClub.co.nz is a global accommodation specialist website offering hotel bookings for up to 12 months in advance.
