Swiftrank Launches 13 Major-Market Travel Sites With Enhanced User
Functionality and Performance-Based Marketing For Hoteliers

World’s largest network of leading international travel websites offers hoteliers direct booking
capabilities and provides a rich source of local information for travelers


SINGAPORE (January 31, 2011) – Swiftrank, the leading online global travel network, has launched 13 major market-specific websites, each offering great rates on local hotels in some of the world’s most sought-after destinations. These full-featured websites showcase the best hotels in popular travel markets, such as Boston, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and other key regions around the globe.
 
The 13 new content-rich websites are part of Swiftrank’s existing cloud-based network of more than 12,000 travel-related websites. The sites offer consumers an interactive hub for market-specific travel planning and provide hoteliers with a program to drive international travelers to book reservations directly on their websites. The new sites offer detailed trip-planning information like upcoming events, popular local attractions and even curated tips from dedicated local bloggers. Consumers and hoteliers alike benefit from Swiftrank’s “global to local” approach, giving travelers from across the world detailed insight into specific destinations, while providing hotels with the opportunity to reach a broad, international pool of traveling consumers.
 
The major-market hotel websites launched this month are: BostonHotels.com, CapeTownHotels.com, FlorenceHotels.com, HongKongHotel.com, JerusalemHotels.com, HotelLondon.com, MontrealHotels.com, RioDeJaneiroHotels.com, StockholmHotels.com, SeattleHotels.com, SydneyHotels.com, TelAvivHotels.com and VancouverHotels.com.
 
In addition to being excellent sources of local information for travelers to these destinations, the Swiftrank websites provide leading hotels with opportunities to connect with international consumers planning to visit these markets. Each site offers premium positioning for Featured Hotels, with prominent home page and interior page placements. Unlike other major online travel sites, Swiftrank websites provide Featured Hotels with direct links to their own proprietary websites, driving highly profitable direct bookings. Swiftrank caps the number of hotels listed on each site at 20, ensuring that the featured properties receive maximum exposure to prospective guests.
 
“Following last month’s successful launch of LasVegasHotels.com, our latest series of 13 major-market travel sites represents Swiftrank’s ongoing commitment to enhance what is already the world’s most comprehensive network of market-specific hotel booking sites—and we’re still growing,” says Sue Heilbronner, president of Swiftrank. “We have a number of additional major-market websites that will go live in the coming months, reinforcing the ability of Swiftrank to attract hard-to-reach consumers at an attractive price point.”
 
Singapore-based Swiftrank is an industry leading tech-savvy firm, specializing in connecting travel companies with millions of web consumers each month in highly targeted contextual settings. With a network of 12,000 location-based websites, only Swiftrank can place hotels in front of such a broad array of global consumers. Swiftrank is cognizant of the economic challenges hoteliers face in online distribution, and the firm prices its featured hotel offerings competitively. “We provide scalable marketing opportunities for hoteliers that are simply unmatched in the online booking world, and we do it without charging exorbitant commissions and fees,” Heilbronner says.
