Singapore, November 3rd, 2011 – eBay Singapore customers can now buy massively discounted travel deals through the site, snapping up options on room nights around the region at anything up to 75% off. The deals, supplied by Asia Pacific’s leading travel metasearch site Wego.com, are time-limited where users can secure the offers now but
redeem any time up to six months or even a year ahead.

eBay Singapore is presenting these fantastic deals under its Travel tab from the home page, http://www.ebay.com.sg or directly from http://travel.ebay.com.sg. The deals are called Wego FAST:DEALS.

Jason Lee, Head of Southeast Asia and Middle East, eBay Marketplaces said:

“We are thrilled to present these discounted deals from Wego to eBay Singapore users just in time for the holiday season. This is in line with eBay’s aim of surfacing the best merchandise and services at great value for our customers across various verticals from Fashion and Electronics to Travel.”

Wego.com launched FAST:DEALS earlier in the year, testing a series of exceptional offers to see what would appeal uniquely to this market. The FAST:DEALS on ebay.com.sg are therefore consistently hot. The focus is on:

  • Beautiful independent resort hotels in the most accessible Asian destinations
  • Value-adds on top of the discount, including spa treatments and kids going free
  • Deeply discounted combinations of Singapore Flyer, Duck Tour, Cable Car and Sentosa attractions

As Craig Hewett, Chief Commercial Officer at Wego commented:

“eBay is the perfect platform. It’s where users get something they’d really like at a fraction of the market rate. The same applies to Wego FAST:DEALS. Now everyone in Singapore can afford the occasional luxury break.”
