Since its humble beginnings in late 2002, Travellerspoint (http://www.travellerspoint.com) has emerged as a significant competitor in the growing field of online travel agencies, trumping high-profile competitors Travelocity.co.uk and Opodo.co.uk in this years' Travel & Tourism Web Awards hosted by Travelmole.com.
The judges from Travelmole noted Travellerspoint's "excellent layout, navigability and ease of use" as winning features.
Without a doubt the site's considered design and personal feel have played a major role in its success. Founders Peter and Samuel Daams believe that the careful selection of user-friendly accommodation booking technologies has been crucial to Travellerspoint's impressive growth.
To achieve the site's user friendly edge, Travellerspoint partnered with technical providers hotelclub.net, ratestogo.com and bookhostels.com, each leading agencies in their respective niche areas of the online accommodation booking market, and integrated these tightly with various Travellerspoint-specific features. The technologies excel in simplicity and ease of use and in a market where users are increasingly impatient, it is a distinct advantage. Combined with personal and responsive customer service, a friendly and helpful community and various free travel services, the site has gone from strength to strength. Over 15,000 users have now signed up for a free membership at the site, which allows them to ask volunteer travel helpers for advice, keep an online travel diary and participate in the lively travel forums.
The focus for the future is to build on the strengths already developed: delivering high quality travel services for an increasingly internet-savvy travel market. A strategy that will surely keep Travellerspoint at the top of its category.
