Dealchecker adds hotels to site search

Price comparison site Dealchecker has developed a series of enhancements for the service.

The company has developed a hotel search facility, which provides consumers with a separate page for each hotel along with snippets of reviews aggregated from sources across the web.

The development is being tested on the site at the moment and the next step is to enable consumers to add their own reviews.

Dealchecker managing director Alex Saint estimated consumers would be able to start adding their own content by the end of March.

The company has also developed a flight deals product to help consumers who are flexible on departure date to find the best price.

The technology provides consumers with a grid of holiday durations, from seven nights to mid-week short breaks and weekend breaks, over a 13-week period with the relevant pricing attached.  

The flight deals technology will be integrated within the city destination landing pages of the site by the end of March.

Saint is also keen for the company to make more of its travel tips section by tying them directly into the destination landing pages.

“Our role is to bring loads of links to information to one place and allow consumers to view them and link through to them. It’s about building up a trust in our brand for checking stuff. We’re doing the legwork for them,” he said.

Saint also revealed the company was developing cruise and holidays solutions for the site.

According to Saint, dealchecker visitor numbers are up 46% to approximately 450,000 in January compared with the same period last year. Subscribers have increased more than five-fold to 175,000. He also claimed a 50% increase in revenue year-on-year.
