We have created an API to feed alternate travel options to our Recommendation Box — such as train travel and travel package information — and we can offer our users the whole picture of the travel offer available.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) May 28, 2008
Mobissimo's Recommendation Box updates dynamically according to the user's query, and displays all possible options including, for example, Eurostar and Rail Europe fares for many European destinations. In addition, Mobissimo's Recommendation Box can offer suggestions based on activity: when a user searches for particular beach destinations such as Cancun, Honolulu or Miami, the search engine will automatically recommend fares for the cheapest beach destination.
With a single click, Mobissimo's real-time travel search gives travellers direct, up-to-the-second access to travel deals from the widest available range of online travel agencies, major air carriers, low cost airlines, car rentals, and hotels.
"We are setting the industry standard for what travel comparison search should be – quick, easy, and comprehensive. With Mobissimo's innovative Recommendation Box, the best travel options are available in one place so that Mobissimo users can find better, cheaper travel options, and spend their time travelling instead of searching," said Beatrice Tarka, Mobissimo's CEO and co-founder. "We have created an API to feed alternate travel options to our Recommendation Box — such as train travel and travel package information — and we can offer our users the whole picture of the travel offer available."
