Independent Travel Portal for Europe: New Menace for Travel Giants?


" This new site was established thanks to an unique initiative of four Dutch brothers Veraart, all fervent travellers and, moreover, enthusiastic Internet users. "

(INB) -- Recently the Internet began offering consumers the option of obtaining any conceivable travel information about Europe from one website: http://www.Eurotrotter.com based in the Netherlands. This new site was established thanks to an unique initiative of four Dutch brothers Veraart, all fervent travellers and, moreover, enthusiastic Internet users.

The initiative is based on their experience that the present offering of travel sites is merely geared towards booking instead of taking advantage of the power of Internet to surf extensively the thousands of sites of local organizations or to learn more about habits and customs in a specific area, the local cuisine, excursions, etc.

"The search is the most fun part of preparing for the trip," explains Yke Veraart, one of the initiators and manager of the company. "Our site visitors will not be forced to accept the narrow offer of most travel agencies." He points out that many will decide to find their own accommodations via the hundreds of local agencies and tourist offices that lease houses in any category, from wooden cabins to private castles. They will also discover that making separate reservations for accommodation and transportation often can be far cheaper than purchasing a combined package.

Consumer quality control

According to Veraart, the success of http://www.Eurotrotter.com stands or falls with the quality of the site's content; therefore, much time is spent in preparation, particularly in selecting the sites. Today the portal contains more than 3000 quality sites on Europe, and that number is growing.

In order to maintain a high level of quality, active dialogue with visitors is sought. Says Veraart, "Visitors are invited to make suggestions for information to be included so that we can make Eurotrotter as complete as possible." In line with this view, a few months after the site has been running, Eurotrotter intends to give consumers the opportunity to exchange their experiences, though these plans are still in the drafting stage. As Veraart puts it, "Quality is paramount, and that includes feedback. We want to facilitate communication between consumers in seven languages, and we intend to provide more than just a chat box."
