Travelocity has launched an updated version of its homepage featuring added emphasis on the booking engine, a revamped deals section to offer travelers customized deals based on their home city, a new tab dedicated exclusively to Las Vegas, the placement of Facebook and Twitter buttons at the top of the page for better visibility and refreshed promotional spots for media placement. “With this update, our goal was to make our booking engine the hero of the homepage and to present tailored travel options that appeal to our customers’ unique needs,” said Nejib Ben-Khedher, chief operating officer, Travelocity. “We made Travelocity easier to use as we strive to inspire customers to discover the perfect vacation destination, cheap flight, cruise and/or hotel.” Travelocity’s new homepage is the latest element of the site to get a refresh joining the flight and vacation package sections which were both updated last year. The new flight shopping path features improved sorting and filtering tools to make it easier for consumers to find the itinerary that best meets their needs. Travelocity’s new vacation package options give customers the ability to choose a vacation package based on several different flights – the least expensive option, the one that most closely matched their original travel time preferences, the shortest overall flight, and, when available, a red-eye flight option.
