Travelzoo, the New York-based deal publisher, has been building its hotel-booking and search capabilities over the past two years and claims 28 million members. The site, though, only offers a little more than 2,000 hotels, which is tiny compared with Expedia Inc. or Priceline Group brands, for example. Speaking during the company’s first quarter earnings call on Thursday, CEO Holger Bartel said the company will begin heavily promoting hotel date-specific deal searches for new and existing members. Bartel also said Travelzoo’s hotel bookings have more than doubled during the past year but didn’t offer specific figures, although quarterly revenue of $34.8 million is down nine percent year-over-year for the quarter.
