Finding great Travel Deals just became a lot easier for Canadians

New TripSearch tool gives travelers the ability to enter their travel criteria once and search multiple websites

Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Lifestyle Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor MONTREAL/QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 10, 2007) - Travelalerts.ca, Canada's online publisher of Travel Specials announced today the launch of TripSearch (http://www.travelalerts.ca/TripSearch/), an online travel search tool that helps Canadians find outstanding travel deals. The first of its kind in Canada, TripSearch allows deal-seeking travelers to enter their travel criteria once and search multiple sites with the click of a button.

"TripSearch allows us to offer a tool for those looking for travel deals but who have specific dates and destinations in mind" said Jerome Guidollet, Managing Partner of Travelalerts.ca. "TripSearch complements our existing website and Weekly Travel Deals Newsletters and responds to the feedback we have received from many of our members".

Launched in 2004, Travelalerts now informs over 125,000 Canadians every week of where to find fantastic travel deals. Whether it's WestJet announcing a seat sale, Air Transat offering $39 round-trip tickets to Florida or a local travel agency offering a great deal on a 7-day all-inclusive week in the Caribbean, Travelalerts keeps its readers informed of these and other top travel deals available.

Travelalerts.ca also prides itself on being the only service of its kind in Canada to offer a customized newsletter by departure city. "If you live in Vancouver or Calgary, you don't need to know about a travel deal departing from Montreal" said Luis Berho, Senior Editor at Travelalerts.ca. "Our readers have repeatedly indicated their interest in finding out about deals which they can profit from, which is why when you sign-up to our free newsletter we ask you to chose your preferred departure airport. Now with TripSearch we have taken this a step further; allowing users to search for deals based on their specific needs".
