There's so much flux in the travel market now, that we wanted to simplify the summer vacation planning process with our new Vacation Deals map
New York, NY (Vocus) March 26, 2009
As business travel plummets, the tourism industry is forecasting that families will boost the economic recovery with their summer vacations. In order to help families select from the best offers, Family Travel Forum, the award-winning family vacation media company, has just launched its Flee Market, an online mapping tool that allows families to find value vacation offers based on location.
"There's so much flux in the travel market now, that we wanted to simplify the summer vacation planning process with our new Vacation Deals map," notes Family Travel Forum (FTF) editor Kyle McCarthy. "We know some parents would prefer a week-long $750 cruise among Greece's archeological highlights more than a $67 theme park ticket guaranteeing two days of great fun in southern California. Flee Market™ makes it easy to choose."
With Flee Market™, families can go to familytravelforum.com/map, zoom in using Google Maps technology, and get a global perspective on the best offers at destinations that interest them. Each flag on the map links to a value vacation option that travelers can read more about, comment on, rate, and book themselves. Flee Market™ also allows registered users to share their own savings tips with the rest of FTF's frequent traveling community.
Flee Market™ deals make the map only after passing a rigorous value test. The FTF staff combs through thousands of discounts, savings, value-adds, free perks and other innovative enticements each month. After a through investigation, the top values in the places family travelers most want to visit are posted.
