Sydney, December 7th 2011 – Australia’s travelling consumers now have access to over 150 travel suppliers when planning their next trip on ninemsn Travel, which is being powered for the first time by search platform Wego.
Wego aggregates the best deals, no matter the travel budget, comparing, flights, accommodation, deals and packages from across the global market.
Dean Wicks, General Manager Australia & New Zealand for Wego said:
“This partnership is a win for the travel industry as well as consumers. All travel suppliers that are partnered with Wego now have a visible platform through the ninemsn portal, while consumers benefit from a greater choice – and price comparisons to ensure that they pay less and hopefully travel a lot more.”
Wego’s metasearch technology collates, presents and tracks travel products and deals from around the world. ninemsn users will have the pick of the broadest possible choice of over 300,000 accommodation options and over 500 airlines, including all Australia’s low cost carriers.
The site is entirely neutral, with only a single innovative search criterion: popularity. Wego
technology measures what is popular with Australian users, and displays most frequently searched destinations and accommodation options. Rankings change continuously, making it an excellent tool to see what is current and popular.
The daily deals model, which has been embraced by Australians, is reflected in the new design. The hottest offers from Getaway Lounge, Living Social, and Wego FAST:DEALS to name a few are aggregated for users to check multiple sources without leaving their favourite site. A newsletter option also delivers deals to personal inboxes in a single message.
“Wego’s user-first approach to search means this collaboration with ninemsn is going to take us all on a fantastic journey. The real winners here are the Australian consumer as we continue on our mission to help them save time, pay less and travel more,” Dean added.
