Thursday, 15 May 2008：Travel search engine and trip planner toureagle.com started its global destination roll-out this week. The company added Ireland and Northern Ireland to the service. Launched in December 2007, toureagle.com plans rapid expansion of its destination offerings.
"We are pleased to bring this great travel planning resource to the 2,2 million Irish Internet users and 8 million travelers visiting Ireland each year,” said Pierre Kleinhans, CEO of the Toureagle Group.
The service allows users to set up a single destination search which finds a comprehensive range of suppliers. The search result is a tailormade itinerary, featuring providers of accommodation, restaurants and activities for each town. Users are connected to online booking agents and travel services including car rental, flights, ferries, trains and taxis. Maps and directions for the itineraries are provided and relevant books can be ordered online.
"A single search in toureagle.com will give travellers access to a range of relevant providers such as they could previously only access through many keyword searches on general search engines,” said Kleinhans. “Planning for a trip in Ireland and Northern Ireland just became easier."
"Toureagle.com is a welcome addition in the tourism distribution armory of Ireland,” said Victor Garland, Irish director on the board of Toureagle SA Limited, who has also served on the Dublin Tourism board. “When results incorporate the breadth of the service offerings in the destination as coherently as toureagle.com does it is a happy day for travellers and all providers in a destination.”
"The toureagle.com editorial and partnership teams have established excellent coverage of destination Ireland,” continued Kleinhans. “As a company we express our thanks to the many participating providers. We will continue to expand our content offering through partnership and research."
