Classic Vacations Unveils New Website

NEWS RELEASE

FEATURES INCLUDE ONLINE BOOKING ENGINE, “WANDERLIST,” AND MORE

December 07, 2016

San Jose, CA – Classic Vacations has launched its redesigned website out of beta, offering a myriad of new and improved benefits to Travel Advisors.

The first key benefit of the revitalized site is a faster, redesigned booking engine. Travel Advisors can now search for specific hotels or filter for chosen attributes, and are able to book vacation elements faster and more easily. Additionally, TAs can now book more than one room on a single itinerary, simplifying the process for their clients.

Classic Vacations’ new Wanderlist is another highly-anticipated feature. Much like an online wish list, TAs can now create custom proposals for their clients, whether it be “Romantic Escapes in the Caribbean,” “Family Getaways in Mexico,” or simply “Walking Distance to the Beach.” Saving properties to the Wanderlist is completed in a few clicks, and the lists can then be customized and sent to clients to provide key comparative information for choosing their ideal vacation itinerary.

Improvements have also been made to the Private Label function, for Travel Advisors who wish to create their own marketing site through Classic Vacations. The creation—and customization—of these sites is now faster and more efficient. Visitors can also more easily navigate to information about Classic’s Travel Smart Plans, land and cruise activities, pre- and post- options, and more.

“We at Classic Vacations are very excited to launch our new and improved website,” said David Hu, President of Classic Vacations. “The team has worked tirelessly throughout the beta process to fine-tune our online booking engine, for the benefit of our Travel Advisors and our hotel partners alike. We will continue to offer the highest class of service to travel professionals and their clients, and to showcase the best travel experiences, on this new site.”

Classic is also offering an incentive to Travel Advisors using the new online booking engine: for every qualified booking (completed and paid online between December 7th and January 15th), Travel Advisors will earn a $25 prepaid gift card as a token of appreciation. “We value our travel partners,” remarked Amy Logan, Director of Online Marketing. “In addition to offering the best possible online experience, we wanted to remind them how much we appreciate their interest in the new website, and their patience while we worked to get it up and running.”

The new website is now live at https://www.classicvacations.com, with further enhancements to functionality and features expected in the coming months.
