March, 2004 - More often than not, how one sees the world all comes down to perspective. Usually the people or companies with the better, brighter perspectives occupy the seats with enviable views.
In the world of online hotel room reservations, FastBooking offers hotel owner/operators and guests alike the very best seats in the house without a doubt. No one can promise and deliver the close-up and complete views of room inventories and rates the way FastBooking can.
The Wave of NOW
According to a recent Forrester Research study,
some 30.7 million U.S. households will buy travel online in 2004. That
doesn’t factor in the estimated one in five bookings at U.S. properties
that are made by overseas travelers.
According to PhoCusWright Inc., one in five bookings will be made online and this trend will continue to balloon in the coming years and decades.
