Ranked by Hitwise in the top 5 most visited travel agency websites in 2010, the site has experienced significant growth in visitor numbers over the past 7 years since the previous site design was created. Since 2007 when the company was placed 1st in the Fast Track 100 index of fastest growing private companies, visitors to the site have more than doubled.
The new site is expected to grow that audience even further, with a modern, clean design that focuses on quick, clear and user-friendly search tools for hotels and flights, as well as car hire, airport transfers and airport parking.
TravelRepublic.co.uk features over 100,000 hotels worldwide, and as well as allowing users to filter results on criteria such as customer ratings, the site now offers a map view with Google Street View integrated. This useful feature allows users to see exactly what a particular hotel and its surrounding area looks like.
The new site benefits from increased integration with Facebook and Twitter, with buttons allowing users to ‘Like’ or ‘Tweet’ about any page on the site, allowing Travel Republic’s 50,000 Facebook fans, for example, to easily share recommendations with friends. The new site also features over 250,000 genuine customer hotel reviews from Travel Republic customers.
Managing director Paul Furner commented “The new website is much faster, more user-friendly and has a fresh, modern look and feel. We are absolutely delighted with the extremely positive feedback we have already had from our customers.”
The company also offers a hotel-only website in Ireland at TravelRepublic.ie.
Travel Republic is one of the UK’s largest and most well-established online travel agents, with over one million holidaymakers booking annually.
