While the travel industry has greatly changed since our launch, our mission has remained the same: to be a comprehensive, unbiased guide to the best budget hotels out there.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 20, 2011
EuroCheapo, the expert guide to budget hotels in Europe, celebrates its 10th birthday this week, while preparing to launch new guides to Zurich and San Francisco.
Founded in Berlin, Germany, in June 2001, EuroCheapo originally launched with a guide to cheap hotels in Paris. During the past 10 years, the Web site has expanded to include 27 additional European cities along with a guide to hotels in New York City, its current home base.
“Since our first day in business, our editors have personally visited, reviewed and photographed thousands of budget-friendly hotels, hostels and B&Bs in major cities in Europe,” said Tom Meyers, EuroCheapo’s founder and Editor-In-Chief.
“While the travel industry has greatly changed since our launch, our mission has remained the same: to be a comprehensive, unbiased guide to the best budget hotels out there,” Meyers added.
EuroCheapo plans to launch guides to Geneva, Switzerland and San Francisco, California in July 2011.
“We have great budget hotel options for one of Europe’s most notoriously expensive cities,” continues Meyers. “We’re also very excited about our San Francisco guide. While we continue to be primarily focused on Europe, this is an example of a conventionally expensive destination that will benefit from a 'Cheapo treatment.'”
The site will announce additional city launches in the fall.
Founded in 2001, EuroCheapo.com is a free guide to budget travel in Europe. The site's editors inspect and review inexpensive hotels, pensions, B&Bs and hostels throughout Europe. Properties that meet EuroCheapo’s standards appear as “Editor’s Picks,” along with a candid review, original photographs, room rates, contact information and more. EuroCheapo does not charge hotels to be listed on its website.
EuroCheapo also publishes city articles and a daily blog that covers topics including public transportation, museums and attractions, budget airlines, cheap eats and alternative accommodations—all to help readers make the most of their travel budgets.
EuroCheapo has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, American Public Media’s Marketplace, Chicago Tribune and Budget Travel magazine, among other media outlets. In addition, EuroCheapo was named one of PC Magazine’s “Top 100 Undiscovered websites.”
EuroCheapo is owned and operated by Over There Interactive Inc. and is based in New York City.
