Online Vacation Guide Allows Travelers to Book and Plan Trips All in One Place
LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwire – July 22, 2010) – The creators of VEGAS.com, the world’s #1 city travel website, bring their expertise to Mexico.com with the launch of a brand new, full-service site that helps travelers make decisions and book vacations to the top Mexican destinations.
Combining the concept of a travel guide with an online booking agent, Mexico.com is the first site of its kind dedicated to the scenic and serene tourist destinations of Mexico. From the towering pyramids of the Maya and Aztecs to the stunning waters of the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean, Mexico.com outlines travel options with a vast array of content supported by photos, video and interactive maps. On the site travelers will find great deals on hotel stays and air and hotel packages; descriptive summaries of top cities including background and history; popular attractions and beaches; recommended nightlife and dining options; and more. Organized by destination, the site makes finding the right hotel or activity easy and even includes insider know-how on weather, transportation, tipping etiquette and key Spanish phrases. Also included on the site are sophisticated searching and filtering capabilities that allow travelers to find destinations and hotels based on options (such as all-inclusive or not), amenities, location, pricing, ratings and more.
“Our devoted team of experts now has a significant focus on Mexico, making the capabilities on this site similar to those on VEGAS.com. We can show you where to stay, what’s at the property, what’s around you, what attractions you can’t miss and we also allow you to search and book hotels by your specific preferences,” said Howard Lefkowitz, president of VEGAS.com which operates Mexico.com. “By leveraging our existing hospitality technology platform we have built a personalized site that is a one stop shop for the perfect Mexican vacation.”
Undertaking expansion efforts and by partnering with VEGAS.com and Mexico.com, Aeromexico saw the opportunity to provide additional lift to both the Las Vegas and Mexico markets. On May 10th, 2010, Aeromexico added daily, non-stop flights to Mexico City from Las Vegas, complemented by also adding daily non-stop flights to Monterrey. The new frequencies and flight departure times from Las Vegas will allow the airline to connect to more than 35 destinations in Mexico and 8 destinations in South America. Aeromexico’s increased service offerings will provide additional lift from these areas into Las Vegas at a time when many airlines are decreasing their service.
“The launch of this site comes at a very opportune time,” states Mr. Jorge Goytortua, Aeromexico’s vice president of sales, North America division. “Having a company that runs dedicated and comprehensive travel sites specific to our important destinations is vital when deciding where to increase flights. We are happy to work with Mexico.com and VEGAS.com on the collective goal of strengthening tourism for these world-class destinations.”
Mexico.com houses an extensive list of select hotels and activities for the top Mexican destinations, while maintaining accuracy and impact with its information. Its network of top airlines, hotels and travel professionals makes for the most efficient way to research and book any Mexican vacation.
“We are very excited to be working with a company that has so much experience in destination marketing. From the beginning, we have seen how their combination of marketing and technology expertise will benefit our properties and help sell a lot of hotel rooms,” said Eric Bacmeister, sales director with Pueblo Bonito Hotels & Resorts. “We welcome their entrance into this market with open arms. We see them as more than another wholesaler, we see them as a partner.”
