Solid, No Nonsense and Great Deals
Member Name: huggy2009
Advantages: Some excellent deals
Disadvantages: The site is functional at best
Travelzoo is a very good travel site, unlike Expedia or Lastminute.com, this is a small site that concentrates on deals rather than website design.
How does it Look?
The site is a pretty basic design, the front page has links to the following:
Hotel Deals (These are differentiated by region)
Holiday Deals (Differentiated by type)
Entertainment Events (Shows/Entertainment)
Last Minute Travel
Regional Flights in the UK
Also on the front page is a link to the top 20 deals of the week.
What is different about this site:
For me this site is different because the top 20 deals are generally pretty amazing value, the deals seem to pick out the very best deals on the net and offer them to readers. All of the other sections are a mix of the very best deals too and offer something a bit different for readers.
The site looks ugly but this is all about content over style. Deals today include a 14 day holiday in Kenya for £349 as well as some excellent hotel deals in the UK.
Have you used them:
I have used them, the site is really a link to the best deals on other sites, so Travelzoo itself is more of a broker, but i've booked cheap deals without any problems and would definitely recommend the deals to others.
The site offers a weekly email which gives you as a member first viewing of the top 20 deals, as some of these are excellent value they can only be available for short periods therefore the weekly email is of great interest to people wishing for a great deal.
Overall this is an interesting site, it looks ugly and functional at best but it offers some amazing details and some pretty good ones, it is for serious travellers, people who want a good deal rather than a site that looks pretty.
Summary: Solid, No Nonsense and Great Deals
