Online Travel Agency Zuji is celebrating not only its fourth birthday in Australia and the Asia Pacific, but also the launch of a new logo and a new walk-in, free-of-charge, Internet booking kiosk facility in Sydney.

The logo features three multi-coloured stars representing ZUJI’s many product offerings and business relationships. The stars also help symbolise travel, as inspired by the earliest travellers who looked to the stars as a guide towards new discoveries and destinations. ZUJI’s stars are representative of the travel guidance ZUJI offers. The hand drawn effect represents how travellers create their own unique journeys online on ZUJI.

ZUJI’s Marketing Director and ZUJI Singapore General Manager Mr Philip Ho commented, “Our business has evolved over the past four or five years, and it was time to evolve the logo. Our new-look logo helps reflect ZUJI’s focus on providing travellers with travel products and tools in order for them to create unique journeys, drawn from local and international content, booked on stable and internationally tried and secure technology.”

Communicating our close connections with parent company Travelocity reassures travellers that when they book trips on ZUJI, they are not only booking with a trusted regional leader in travel, but they are supported by a global leader in online travel.”

ZUJI’s new Internet Booking Kiosk Facility will be featured in the foyer of their new business premises in Blue Street, North Sydney. The service will be supported by a help-phone linking directly to ZUJI’s staffed call centre and a reception counter for paper ticket collection and offline payment should the customer prefer.

“As an AFTA member, here at ZUJI we fully endorse AFTA’s campaign to encourage travellers to only use AFTA licensed travel agents (both on and offline) when booking travel. At ZUJI our service is available 24/7 and our fully trained customer service centre is open seven days a week with extended opening hours,” said ZUJI’s Australian General Manager, Peter Smith.

“When the ZUJI site went live in 2002, we estimated that seven percent of travel bookings made in Australia would be purchased online by 2005. Figures show that the amount of travel bought online is increasing at an unexpectedly rapid rate, with a 23 percent increase from 2005 to 2006. Online channels are projected to generate 60% of all U.S. travel gross bookings by 2008. Whilst we’re not America, we’re certainly never far behind,” continued Smith.
