Singapore, November 14th, 2011 – The one gripe buyers of flash sales in travel have is that they pay for the entire trip up-front. No longer. Wego FAST:DEALS have just created a new part-payment process so that their subscribers can secure an amazing travel offer with just a small fixed deposit or a percentage of the total. In effect, with just a few dollars.
A Wego FAST:DEAL holiday, discounted at up to 75% off the room-rate, then becomes even more affordable. Buyers pay a little in advance, but then settle the balance directly with the hotel when they go and stay – which can be any time up to a year after the offer closed.
The development removes a significant financial barrier, as Dean Wicks, General
Manager, Australia and Head of Marketing at Wego.com explained:
“People see the discount and realise that if they take a FAST:DEAL, they can enjoy a luxury getaway at a budget price. The decision to buy is therefore usually pretty spontaneous. If it’s not planned, it needs to be easy financially. Now, a very small deposit secures the trip and users only pay the balance when they choose to go.”
It is another point of differentiation from other generic discount sites that
maintain full settlement up-front. Wego FAST:DEALS buyers also enjoy occasional complimentary extras like airport transfers and kids going free.
Anyone can sign up to receive Wego FAST:DEALS by email at www.wego.com/fastdeals/.
Subscribers will see the current deal giving a 72% discount on two nights for two sharing
at the beautiful FX Resort at Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui in Thailand. A superior room, breakfast and an airport transfer are included, together with a 20% discount on meals taken at the Mellow Restaurant.
