Adds Car Hire to UK Site as Well
LONDON and BOSTON, MA–(Marketwire – August 16, 2010) – Cheapflights Media Ltd., the online international media company and the parent of price comparison brands Cheapflights and zugu™, announced today its expansion of the zugu flights meta search brand to include hotels price comparison. Launched earlier this year in beta as a powerful, easy to use flights search first in the UK and then in Germany, zugu is now also available in the U.S. All three sites will help users find great hotel deals in one single site, while zugu.co.uk users can enjoy both hotels and car hire search.
“In today’s economy, everyone wants a great deal, and travellers have been asking for the power of meta search in a much simpler design. zugu has already started to build an enthusiastic fan base searching its elegant display for the lowest available airfares. Now we want to help make finding a hotel or even a car just as simple and easy,” says Chris Cuddy, CEO of Cheapflights Media. “zugu takes the hassle and complexity of trip planning so you can easily find lowest rates for where and when you want to go.”
Cheapflights Media will be rolling out both hotels search and car hire on zugu.co.uk, and hotel search on zugu.de and zugu.com starting immediately. Though the new sites and features are still in beta, they are a great starting point for booking travel in any of our markets.
zugu’s powerful and user friendly model, and uncluttered, elegant display, cuts the complexity out of search, and offers real-time availability across an increasing range of travel categories. To view and trial the new additions for the UK, visit http://www.zugu.co.uk/
