Dublin, Ireland – Online travel company Hostelworld.com has launched a B&B website bedandbreakfastworld.com, bringing B&Bs direct online access to customers.
The move further consolidates Hostelworld.com’s position as the global market leader in online reservations for the budget accommodation sector, booking more properties in more destinations than any other online accommodation provider.
Bedandbreakfastworld.com was developed in response to high consumer demand for a dedicated website for booking bed and breakfast accommodation online in real time, rather than on request. Bedandbreakfastworld.com has over 6,000 B&Bs and guesthouses available to book on the site.
Visitors to the site can view photos and read customer reviews of all properties. A map search application, using Google maps, has been integrated to make the search for customers quicker and easier. The map search capability allows B&B’s in more remote, or “off the beaten track” areas to be located with ease. The site also supports multiple currencies.
Bedandbreakfastworld.com product manager Itziar Gonzalez said “B&Bs and guesthouses have always been a popular option for many people, but they are growing in popularity with the current economic climate. People are turning to a more boutique style property where prices are low and they receive a more personal touch. The website is a one stop shop where people can check price, availability and ratings for B&B’s while getting a good overview of the accommodation with reviews and photos.”
