Roomex.com Hotels has increased bookings by 40% from over 13,000 bookings in the first 6 months of 2007 to almost 19,000 bookings for the same period in 2008. This represents almost €3.5 million worth of hotel bookings in the 6 months just ended.
Jack Donaghy, Managing Director of Roomex.com, explains that the increase in bookings has arisen due to a number of reasons. Significant Online Marketing campaigns with the likes of Google, Facebook and Pigsback.com have substantially increased awareness of the Roomex.com brand. He also cites the discounted prices and the Repeat Customer Discount scheme for over 20,000 hotels worldwide on the new www.Roomex.com website as being major factors of growth over the last 6 months.
Roomex.com has also added several new features already this year, including customer hotel reviews and 26 major city video travel guides. Mr. Donaghy expects bookings to more than double again over the coming year and is very excited about some of the new features that will be available shortly on Roomex – “We expect to increase the number of hotels on our website to over 60,000 before the end of the year with even more discounts. On top of this, we are updating the way in which the website works, giving it more of an interactive ‘web 2.0’ feel, which will make it even easier for our customers to find and book hotels around the world.”
Roomex.com Hotels is an Irish owned company based in Rathfarnham, Dublin. The company’s aim is to offer to the lowest price online for the widest range of hotels around the world.
