SurferLiving.com Brings Technological Advancements to the Coastal Travel Market
SYDNEY, Australia, Jan. 04, 2012 /SurferLiving.com/ -- SurferLiving.com officially launches a state-of-the-art travel website that combines the internet’s best travel technologies with a huge database of travel products to create the surfing world’s most advanced travel platform.
Travelers are now able to instantly search and book travel to nearly every coastal destination on the planet, at prices that are as low or lower than even the largest travel websites.
In today’s web environment consumers can find virtually every travel product on the market. There are major travel sites offering flights, hotels and car rentals, as well as surf travel sites offering boat trips & surf camps.
Some sites offer instant booking capabilities, while most surf travel sites require customers to submit time-consuming email inquiries in order to check rates and availability. To the average surf traveler, no matter which sites they’ve visited, they’ve likely found something missing… until now!
SurferLiving.com offers travel to literally thousands of destinations around the world. The site offers 130,000+ hotels, resorts, vacation rentals, surf camps, boat charters, flights on every major airline, car rentals and more. As SurferLiving.com states in its bio: “Whether you’re a family looking to book a vacation to Waikiki, an experienced surfer looking for a boat trip in Indonesia or a serious adventurer looking to explore the most remote surfing destinations on the planet… Wherever there is surf… there is SurferLiving.com."
SurferLiving.com’s Chief Executive, David McIntosh, explains: “SurferLiving.com is the best of everything rolled up into one sophisticated but simple-to-use website. We started by providing a real-time booking platform, which enables our site users to instantly find and book great travel products. We then focused on the user experience, integrated unique content, developed our social media outreach and tweaked various components within the site. The result is a reliable web platform where our site users can instantly book all of their travel, without sending a single email enquiry to check availability (though online customer service is available), without needing to arrange deposits or use multiple sites to book flights, car rentals and accommodations.”
Simplicity and the user experience are at the heart of SurferLiving.com. The site is designed to make finding and booking travel easy and enjoyable. In fact, the company doesn’t even refer to the people who purchase products on the site as ‘customers’, instead referring to them as ‘site users’.
McIntosh explains, “We are creating more than just a website that sells travel products. SurferLiving.com is on a path to becoming a complete travel platform, allowing our site users to access an abundance of travel tools, such as real-time surf and weather forecasts, travel tips, interviews with professional surfers and adventurers, and lots more. We’re all about convenience and useful information technology.”
Soon, SurferLiving.com will be available in multiple languages, products will be available for purchase in multiple currencies and the company’s advanced mobile applications will allow anyone with a mobile phone and a credit card to instantly find and book travel to every corner of the globe.
“Just like every wave is different, every surfer is different”, says McIntosh “but most surf travel companies are all the same. They offer a very limited number of destinations and products, they offer very little flexibility in terms of creating a customized itinerary and their prices are hugely expensive. We’re changing all that.”
