Travel websites – A New Concept by Drake & Cavendish
Drake & Cavendish launch specialist, advertisement free, luxury hotel and villa directory. Drake & Cavendish says “the new site is a great resource for independent travellers to research and review luxury hotels and villas across the world…and it actually gives users what they want, a direct link to the actual hotel or villa they are interested in”.
The site caters for both property owners and travellers by providing a comprehensive collection of hotels and villas with direct links and contact details to the property’s own website. Many hotels now offer ‘price promises’ to guarantee that booking directly with them is the cheapest way to book – so everyone benefits, clients get the best price, and hoteliers don’t have to pay out a travel agent commission.
Launched with 5000 luxury properties in 200 countries; Drake & Cavendish include luxury hotels from the all the major international chains as well as small independent hotels, and the branded hotels of Leading Hotels of the World, Small Luxury Hotels, Johnasens and Great Hotels of the World.
Hotel and villa owners see a single luxury branded site as a great tool to attract direct clients and Drake & Cavendish estimate that another 5000 luxury hotels and villas will be added onto the site over the next 12 months. Luxury property owners are encouraged to contact them at [email protected] to add their hotel or villa onto the site.
An additional feature is a comprehensive review centre which Drake & Cavendish believe will prove to be an unrivalled tool for any luxury travel buyer before making their reservation. As the site is so new it is a little difficult to gauge its usefulness at this time, but the hope is that users will add and contribute to the site over time.
Drake & Cavendish also believe that travel agents will embrace the new site as it provides them with a single resource with which to advise their clients.
