Best of Both Worlds for Holiday ‘Shoppers’


Best of Both Worlds for Holiday ‘Shoppers’

Auckland, 4 October. New Zealand retail travel agency group, Holiday Shoppe today launches an interactive online travel tool for its customers in the form of a direct interface with leading New Zealand booking engine ZUJI.

Holiday Shoppe Group General Manager, Digby Lawley says that this development is a direct response to the growing number of New Zealanders who are wishing to utilise a centralised and comprehensive online travel resource to either book their travel or research various components of it. The connection to ZUJI offers access to more than 400 airlines and 60,000 hotels plus much much more…and all bookable instantly!

“The Holiday Shoppe online booking system is special in that it offers New Zealanders real time information that is relevant to their individual needs,” says Lawley.

“Our online technology platform is an integral part of the Holiday Shoppe strategy to move forward with our customers without losing sight of the value that our Shoppe’s deliver in terms of personal service and as part of our customers’ community.”

To this end Mr Lawley believes that the ‘Shoppe Online’ product is giving customers the ‘best of both worlds’ as their bookings can be either done autonomously online or can be managed directly by their local Holiday Shoppe agency.

Value features of the ‘Shoppe Online’ system are that it offers the ‘Price Guru’, an interactive tool that allows consumers to set their price point for up to five personally selected cities. The ZUJI system will automatically alert the customer when the fare drops to the target level requested.

The ‘Go Anywhere – From Anywhere’ facility enables customers to book flights and accommodation just about anywhere in the world. Customers can also select their airline seating preferences on participating airlines, accrues frequent flier miles and earn credit card loyalty points.

Subscribers will also benefit from an online newsletter detailing hot destinations and deals that can be booked online or via their local Holiday Shoppe agency.
