"CheapTickets.com's customers are deal seekers. So, we spent the past year
talking to value-focused travelers and listening to what they said about the
types of programs they like and what they consider a great deal. They told us
travel programs and deals had to be straightforward and easy to understand.
They also said they go to great lengths – visiting and revisiting lots of
sites over multiple days – to find the very best deal and once they see it,
they grab it," said Gayle Pigatto, general manager of CheapTickets.com. "The
CheapCash program was designed specifically for that customer – the ultimate
deal seeker. Since the CheapCash program launched in beta in April, the
program is saving customers about 13 percent on average and of those customers
who redeem CheapCash, nearly one-third do it the very same day. The initial
results show that we have created a program perfect for those customers who
are seeking a deal and looking to save right now."
Deal seekers no longer have to go to several websites to see if they are
finding the best hotel deals. To save travelers time and money,
CheapTickets.com also introduced a hotel pricing comparison feature that
compares CheapTickets.com's hotel rates with up to four competitors when
searching for hotels. If the CheapTickets.com price is higher, the company
will match the lower price plus give the customer $50 in CheapCash through its
new Best Price Guarantee.
"The combination of CheapCash along with the hotel pricing comparison feature
and the Best Price Guarantee gives our customers confidence that they are
going to find a great deal and snag the best available price every time they
visit CheapTickets.com," said Pigatto.
