Qantas Launches New Travel Site - Qantas Travel Insider
Sydney, 10 November 2008
Qantas today launched the latest addition to qantas.com - Qantas Travel Insider.
Qantas Group General Manager Sales and Distribution, Mr Rob Gurney, said Qantas Travel Insider was a unique and comprehensive online resource that would help travellers plan the perfect trip.
"Qantas Travel Insider combines stories by respected travel writers from our popular award-winning inflight magazine Qantas The Australian Way, together with the opinions and insights of Qantas Frequent Flyers, Qantas Ambassadors and our most regular travellers - our pilots and cabin crew," Mr Gurney said.
"In a first for Australia, we have developed a platform that allows Qantas Frequent Flyers to share their travel experiences with others and provide unique first-hand reviews of destinations, accommodation, restaurants and bars, entertainment, shopping and other activities, in a user-friendly, searchable format."
Qantas Travel Insider launches with more than 500 quality articles. City Guides will also help travellers with all they need to know about a destination including addresses, phone numbers and websites to attractions, venues and restaurants.
Qantas Frequent Flyers have been given exclusive access to the site so they can submit their comments and reviews in time for the official launch to the general public later this month.
The site also has an RSS feed that customers can subscribe to.
"Qantas Travel Insider further reinforces qantas.com as a truly comprehensive one-stop travel site," Mr Gurney said.
With the very best travel advice from Qantas Travel Insider, and easy online booking for flights, hotels, travel insurance, cars, activities and experiences, qantas.com enables travellers to plan and book every aspect of their trip with ease and confidence.
To celebrate the launch of Qantas Travel Insider, Qantas is giving travellers the chance to be a guest travel writer and win one of 12 unique weekends away for two people to write about an Australian destination. Further details on the competition are available at qantas.com/travelwriter
