VibeAgent.com is a new travel 2.0 web site that combines user reviews, meta-search, and social networking to help people find the perfect hotel at the perfect price. Today the company has launched My Maps and is announcing partnerships with TravelWorm and OneTravel, which bring VibeAgent’s total bookable inventory to over 120,000 hotels, making it the 5th largest hotel site worldwide.
VibeAgent.com helps people make better hotel booking decisions. Site members share hotel reviews and recommendations across their social network of friends, colleagues, and groups. The reviews and social connections on the site in turn drive VibeAgent’s proprietary social search algorithm, which serves up personalized hotel recommendations in the order they are likely to appeal to the user. VibeAgent’s meta-search engine gathers rates and availability for over 120,000 hotels worldwide from many of the leading hotel and travel web sites, so users can also book their chosen hotels at the best available prices.
About My Maps
Today VibeAgent has launched My Maps, personalized maps for each registered user on the site. My Maps is a customizable dashboard for each user to view their network friends, reviews, and groups, and quickly geo-search their personal network to make new friends, discover new places, and find the perfect hotel at the perfect price.
“We really wanted to make something special for our users by creating this map as a powerful yet elegant platform for exploring the world through their eyes,” says VibeAgent CEO Adam Healey.
“We spent months working to create what we hope will be nothing less than an extraordinary user experience.”
VibeAgent is also announcing partnerships today with OneTravel and TravelWorm, two leading online travel agencies, to provide their rates and inventory directly to VibeAgent users. The addition of these two OTAs brings VibeAgent’s total inventory to over 120,000 hotels, making it the 5th largest hotel web site in the world.
