The site features deals in Washington, D.C., Boston and Philadelphia, with national deals slated to debut before the end of the year. AOL says the local deals will get some real estate on the AOL homepage. The “real deals for real people ” site, as AOL describes Wow.com, features discounts at Peacock Cafe and Vida Fitness in the nation’s capital, for example. Trumpeting Wow.com, AOL says: “AOL is the newest entrant and first major media company to venture into the growing deal-of-the-day market.” There’s another media company, Travelzoo, which recently entered the space in August 2010 with its Local Deals. Travelzoo, with its sizable newsletter subscriber base, sees local deals as a signficant new business line. In a recent regulatory filing, Travelzoo stated: “We compete with companies like Groupon and LivingSocial that also sell vouchers for deals from local businesses such as spas and restaurants.” Join me on voyageprivé.com, the world’s leading by invitation-only travel site.
Top travel sites. PrivateSales Press Review. Articles. S. Hotel Blogs - Let's talk about hotels: VoyagePrive enters the US. The European online travel "private deals" website VoyagePrive enters the US market this week.
As some of you know, VoyagePrive is only available to members who have been introduced by their peers to receive a weekly newsletter about preferred deals VoyagePrive negotiates with suppliers (Tour Operators, Hotels...). The private outlet model has been booming recently at all levels. Whether for clothes, 2nd hand good or rare stuff, it looks like investors are really interested to invest in that model following the enormous valuation of a leading site like VentePrivee (another French online venture). VoyagePrive (I still think this is a bad name for an International venture) founded in 2004 allows their members to preview the offers before they go live on a specific date and hour (==> creates envy maybe?)
I wonder how much more staff VoyagePrive needs to recruit to be successful in the US. If you already tried VoyagePrive, please feel free to share your experience.
