. October 14, 2008

NEW YORK, NY, August 31, 2006. Travelzoo (NASDAQ:TZOO - News), a global Internet media company, was this week heralded by BusinessWeek Online as a branding success. The article titled 'Small Company, Big Brand', describes how Travelzoo and nine other innovative companies, including Craigslist, McIlhenny (Tabasco), Mozilla (Firefox), and Pom Wonderful, have turned their brands into household names and defined categories.

BusinessWeek claimed that Travelzoo differentiates successfully through its focus on quality when publishing the latest information on where to find the best travel deals. The BusinessWeek article states, "Travelzoo, along with its newsletters, has 10 million subscribers, largely due to its quality control."

"It is an honor to be recognized by BusinessWeek as a branding success," said Ralph Bartel, chairman and chief executive officer, Travelzoo. "They have acknowledged our efforts to keep our brand promise of maintaining the highest quality content possible. We take testing and evaluation of travel deals to the next level and invest heavily in sourcing and retaining highly qualified staff to research and evaluate the deals we publish."

Travelzoo operates the world's first and only Test Booking Center(TM) that tests the accuracy and availability of deals before and after publication. Travelzoo tests travel deals published in its weekly Top 20(R) list and in the Travelzoo Newsflash(TM) alerts an average of ten times.

"We go the extra mile to ensure that users receive the most reliable information," said Bartel. "Quality control is one of our distinct competitive advantages and one of the key building blocks behind our brand."

Mobile Technology: Next Level Innovation

Despite the recent adversity that has challenged the entire lodging industry in every facet of its operation, the relentless march of digital innovation continues unabated. Part of this is driven by the need to outperform the competition so hoteliers can promote their operations to digitally-savvy Millennial travelers, and part of it is driven by the desire to continuously find new ways to enhance the guest experience. In that regard, hotel apps that provide mobile check-in/out, room access, room service, and the capacity to control in-room lights, curtains, temperature, and television programming from a guest's personal device is fast becoming standard. Soon, new features such as voice control, facial recognition, smart rooms, and the use of A.I. for things like virtual hotel tours may be on the horizon. The January Hotel Business Review will report on how some hotels are integrating new mobile technologies into their operations to offer their guests an impressive, next level experience.
