ebookers re-launches its site in Belgium
Published: 24 Jul 2008: European online travel company ebookers has re-launched its Belgian website (http://www.ebookers.be) on its global technology platform.
The Belgian site is the first on Orbitz Worldwide´s global platform where users can search for travel in a non-English language.
Like past platform migrations in the UK and Ireland, the re-launch of ebookers´ new Belgian website is expected to triple the number of hotels accessible to customers.
Additionally, authentic hotel user reviews of thousands of properties and additional information about traveler destinations, including more hotel photos and maps, also have been added to the Belgian ebookers site.
Additional ebookers.be functionality now includes dynamic packaging features, improved content which supports the Belgian website´s natural search ranking, easier filtering of travel search results, improved features and promotional pages for offers and deals, "My Trips" and "My Accounts" sections that allow customers to view current and previous trips and transatlantic multi-city flight search enabling customers to book more complex flight itineraries, including up to four flights segments, which can arrive and depart from different airports.
Orbitz Worldwide´s global technology platform, built in 2007, makes it easier for travelers to book any combination of flight and hotel choices when planning their own holiday. The multi-language, multi-currency backend information technology has the ability to power multiple websites that operate in different locations, increasing maintenance efficiencies, common inventory access and speed to market with new innovations.
The platform will eventually power all 13 ebookers websites in Europe and also Orbitz Worldwide´s properties in North America.
