www.luckytrip.cn: First Chinese website goes live on Peakwork technology
Peakwork and Chinese partner Zhouyou Technology have just launched the first Chinese travel website based on Peakwork technology. At www.luckytrip.cn, Chinese travelers can now search and book holiday packages dynamically bundled with travel offers from the Peakwork partner network.
Using Peakwork dynamic packaging technology, Zhouyou can create brand new travel packages for the Chinese market. These packages currently focus on both domestic China and Southeast Asia destinations, and will extend to further destinations in the future. The product portfolio focusses on “flight+hotel deals”, which are often cheaper than single components, enabling the tour operator to bundle single services together with attractive margins. Based on Peakwork technology, regional and global partners provide these flight and accommodation components for the new platform.
Peakwork technology brings new open and flexible search options to the Chinese market. Besides the unique package offer, travelers can now use specific search criteria such as budget, hotel category, distance and more to build their holiday. With open search, simply by indicating the travel period, search is now possible.
With this new offer, the website is reacting to the changing Chinese tourism demands. Although OTAs provide lots of tourism services, it currently takes a long time for customers to select different travel services and compare prices. The demand for personlized travel services at cost effective prices is significantly rising in China and Peakwork technology addresses this demand. This is why, Zhouyou Technology was selected to be one of the six finalists for the TravelDaily China Innovation Award held recently in Shanghai, presenting this new technology to the travel community.
Qing Zhang, CEO of Zhouyou Technology, said: “Luckytrip.cn offers a new approach for travel search and booking. We are looking forward to initiating a new era of vacation bookings for Chinese travelers.”
Jan Gerlach, CEO of Peakwork, added: “We see great potential for our technology on the Chinese market. We are very excited about the launch of our pilot Luckytrip.cn, which is both a result of the localization of our complete technology and the basis for future implementations in China.”
