An improved online tool from Airtreks.com (http://www.airtreks.com) makes planning and pricing multi-stop international airfares easier than ever before.
Using the new version 5.0 of Airtreks.com's patent- pending "TripPlanner", visitors to the Airtreks.com Web site can now pick a list of destinations from a world map, get instant "one-click" airfare estimates and options for a trip including all of their destinations, and much more.
Since TripPlanner 1.0 went live in 1998, Airtreks.com has been the only site on the Web that can price customized "around-the-world" and other complex international air itineraries, without restricting travelers to a limited menu of standard routes or a maximum number of destinations.
TripPlanner 5.0 from Airtreks.com is the fastest, easiest to use, and most powerful tool ever available on the Web for pricing and planning complex, customized, international airline journeys.
Improvements in TripPlanner 5.0 include the ability to pick destinations simply by clicking on a zoomable world map (or by city name or airport code), and improved features to store and modify the trips you are planning, view them on a world map, explore alternate routes, and share your plans with friends or traveling companions.
TripPlanner 5.0 also suggests "more for your money" options including added-value stopovers you could add to your trip. When you are ready to finalize your plans, you can submit the trip you've built on the Web with TripPlanner to one of Airtreks.com's travel experts, who will work with you personally to optimize your flight arrangements.
Prices from Airtreks.com for tickets around the world (beginning and ending in the USA) start from less than US$1500 -- less than half the price of the cheapest "RTW" fare published by any of the major airline alliances.
Airtreks.com serves a global clientele of international travelers. TripPlanner 5.0 can price trips starting and ending anywhere in the world -- not just from or to the USA.
"We've always said that a trip around the world is easier and more affordable than most people think", says Steve Johnson, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Airtreks.com "Now, with TripPlanner 5.0, we've made our online tools for planning a complex trip just as easy as they are powerful."
TripPlanner 5.0 is available now at http://www.airtreks.com.
