New Aussie travel booking site launches


In a bullish (and brave) move, DealsAway has opened for bookings

As the travel industry still struggles with low demand, a new travel brand has launched for the Australian and international tourism markets. 

 

Australian owned and operated, DealsAway today unveiled 45 exclusive pre-packaged global travel experiences across accommodation, tours, cruise and rail. 

 

  

Partnering with over 70 industry suppliers, the consumer-facing platform promises to deliver “immersive, meaningful travel experiences at unbeatable prices”. 

 

Developed by the team behind youth work and travel brand, Global Work & Travel, DealsAway was conceived and developed in five months during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

“We recognised a significant opportunity to connect intending travellers hunting for a great value getaway with businesses currently struggling with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,” DealsAway CEO and co-founder Jürgen Himmelmann remarked.

 

“We aren’t shy to enter a competitive market against online booking juggernauts such as Luxury Escapes and TripADeal, as we are blending the best of both worlds; bringing e-commerce and person-to-person customer service together for the best booking experience possible.” 

 

“We are confident in our world-class technology and Australian-based customer service experience.” 

 

Chief operating officer and co-founder Jon Tindley said the travel industry right now needed to “proactively collaborate and work together in new ways to survive and thrive”.

 

“We wanted to develop something beneficial to both the customer and the industry during these challenging times.” 

 

“We hope the launch of DealsAway will instil confidence in the Australian travel industry that tourism is still well and truly alive.”

 

DealsAway packages are available from today (8 February 2021).
