More than one million travelers searching for the best deals on cruise vacations have now requested quotes from CruiseCompete.com. The Web site reached this milestone amidst a recent surge in interest among budget-conscious consumers wanting travel agents to compete for their business.
“Today’s consumers are smarter than ever when shopping for vacation values and we’re simply overwhelmed with cruise requests right now,” said Bob Levinstein, CEO of CruiseCompete.com, the world’s exclusive competitive cruise pricing Web site. “Since our launch, the site’s clients have played an invaluable role in its success by continually referring us to their family members, friends and colleagues.”
There are thousands of CruiseCompete member agents representing many of the largest cruise travel aggregators and agencies in the country. They typically submit 5 competitive quotes for each request, providing their best deals and giving consumers multiple offers to choose from when planning a cruise vacation.
“We’re very proud of and grateful to all of our member agents and agencies, as their continued hard work provides great value to CruiseCompete customers and has made the service such a success today and I’m sure well into the future,” Levinstein said.
Using the CruiseCompete.com Web site is simple. Cruisers select a ship and sail date, and their request appears instantly in thousands of agent accounts. The agents respond to the requests for cruises they specialize in, providing their best offers. Consumers then compare the quotes received, contacting agencies directly for more information or to book. Users remain anonymous until and unless they contact an agent.
“The bottom line is you get the cruise destination and dates you want, with the best available deal from CruiseCompete.com specialists bidding to serve you,” Levinstein said.
