San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2006
Less than a year after receiving its seed funding, TravelPost.com, the premier source for personalized hotel ratings and travel advisory services, today announced it now boasts more than 250,000 hotel reviews, all of which have been written and posted solely by travelers themselves. TravelPost.com members now have more resources than ever -- all completely relevant to them -- to turn to when planning their next trip.
"This is not only a huge milestone for TravelPost.com but a great boost for travelers, who now have more reviews from which to cull personalized travel information that is relevant to them. Having a large number of reviews is a very important measure of how effectively we can help people find a perfect resort, hotel or place to stay. Equally important is knowing something about the traveler who wrote the review, so you can determine if the review is relevant to you,” said Sam Shank, CEO of TravelPost.com. “That's where our unique review filtering system comes in and results in our ability to provide a superior travel planning experience.”
The site has gained considerable momentum this year. In January, TravelPost.com launched the TravelPost.com Insider, a blog, updated daily with the best travel advice, news, and suggestions culled from TravelPost.com members and from around the web. Accessible from the TravelPost.com home page with the most recent posts prominently displayed, the TP Insider allows travelers to mastermind the perfect trip by providing exciting vacation ideas, important travel tips, and up-to-date events and activities around the world.
