US-based marketing companies, Think Placement and First Quest SEO, have announced that they have launched three websites to help frequent travellers with their travelling needs.
The three sites – http://www.frequentflyersprograms.com, http://www.frequentparkerprograms.com and http://www.hotelstayprograms.com- are in their beta stage. They will provide frequent travellers with an opportunity to familiarise themselves with new offers, customer loyalty rewards and other pertinent details from a single source. The firms said that initially, the sites would provide unbiased reviews of programmes that are being offered by companies to travellers so that they may decide for themselves which offer to take.
Angela Luongo, president of First Quest SEO says, ‘I know from experience how difficult it can be to keep track of all the different loyalty rewards programmes. Only after we fully review the frequent travel programmes will they be added to the websites. We want to get the most ‘succinct’ information to the traveller. Which ones truly reward you the most for your money?
The promoters of the initiative said that the sites would help travellers identify offers that provide the best value for money. They also claimed that the sites would help customer identify fine prints in offers by highlighting often-missed information so that customers do not bargain for what they do not need. The firms are also having plans to link all companies that provide reward programmes. A social-media presence is also in the offing.
Modesto Chinosi, president of Think Placement said, ‘Times are still tough and the economy is still recovering. We believe that the websites will be an invaluable resource for people looking to save money and earn valuable points, free parking days, free airline tickets and hotel stays, etc.’
