London (PRWeb UK) October 15, 2009 -- World-wide hotels specialist Hotels4u.com has launched a refreshed version of its website to help holidaymakers find cheap hotels and accommodation at home and abroad even more quickly and easily. A combination of improved browsing and searching, plus extra choice and information will allow customers to confidently make decisions about where to stay for their next holiday.
The new site includes five tabs on the homepage covering the major holiday types: city, beach, all inclusive, winter sun and ski, giving the chance to browse deals and top hotels across each of these categories. Alongside these, a comprehensive hotels section lists all the Hotels4u.com destinations in one place offering the opportunity to quickly drill down by location. In combination, these improved sections allow customers to browse Hotels4u.com's over 45,000 hotels with ease.
For more specific searching, holidaymakers can enter a location and dates straight into the search box. They can still make use of the website's best price filter, which appears under the search box once initial information has been entered and the search button clicked. This allows customers to find hotels offering the lowest prices for all types of accommodation, from self catering and bed & breakfast to half board and all inclusive. It also shows the best prices by star rating.
In addition to the easier browsing and searching, the whole process has been made quicker thanks to the introduction of a new 'cache', which makes the results come back faster than before.
Homepage deals and top hotels
Holidaymakers can access a range of Hotels4u.com's best deals and top hotels straight from the homepage. The website's previous panel of scrolling cheap hotels has been removed and now all the individual hotels and offers are easily accessible at the click of a button. Additional top hotel recommendations across Hotels4u.com's most popular locations can be accessed via the homepage and now every individual destination page, whether its Sharm el Sheikh or Corfu, has its own dedicated top hotels list, which is automatically updated every ten minutes to show the hotels that are currently selling well.
Hotels4u.com has also added to its already extensive portfolio of hotels, including 35 new hotels in Turkey and 15 new Sharm el Sheikh hotels. Extra hotels have been added across Hotels4u.com's city section as well, including new UK choices.
In addition to the improved usability and extra choice, Hotels4u.com has included extended country guides for its top destinations. Holidaymakers can get general background on the place they would like to visit, alongside tips on where to go once they are there and what activities to try. These are accessible through the homepage.
Once the right hotel is found, the booking process is still just as quick and simple as before, allowing holidaymakers to reserve their hotel rooms in a matter of minutes. This time, though, customers benefit from 3D secure payments as well, giving them and their money extra protection. Meanwhile, those seeking to book transfers alongside a hotel can take advantage of the improved transfers function, which has been adapted to make the process much simpler.
Steven Moore, Head of eCommerce at Hotels4u.com, says: "We're very pleased with the new usability of the site and hope that customers will find the changes helpful. It doesn't stop here, though. We're continually seeking ways to make improvements and also to find new deals so that holidaymakers can access a huge range of cheap hotels around the world in a quick and hassle-free manner."
