What Makes an Internet Travel Business Survive, Thrive or Flourish?
CruiseCompete celebrates a milestone anniversary this month, September 2018. Fifteen, (15) years as a highly acclaimed travel website. https://www.cruisecompete.com/pressroom.php
In that time, over 1.2 million cruise requests from consumers have received close to 17 M million custom cruise quotes from cruise travel agencies.
CruiseCompete CEO Bob Levinstein offers 5 substantial reasons this website is flourishing.
"It starts with understanding the needs of cruise shoppers and travel agents," said Levinstein. "Time is also very important to travel agents. Giving agents the ability to select requests for the cruises they have specific expertise and great deals on those specific voyages, and providing them with all of the information they need to quote really enhances their sales."
"From there, it's largely been about excellent cruise specialists with a keen understanding of the cruise marketplace. Great travel agents who really understand the business flourish under our model and tend to stay with us for years. Frequent cruisers who understand the benefits that CruiseCompete offers and aren't shy about telling their friends are some of our more important partners."
"Website Innovation & User Experience has evolved from our users, both consumers and cruise travel specialists. Most recently, we've added an automated Virtual Travel Advisor that helps guide new users through the process of choosing a cruise by answering five easy questions. We've also added a Flight Search capability that shows specific flight options for any selected cruise with just a few extra clicks."
