Consumer-Focused Deal Analyzer Lets Travelers Find Hotel Deals That Save Them the Most Money

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2008) - Finding great hotel deals just got a lot easier with today's launch of DealBase.com, the planet's largest hotel deals website. DealBase.com takes the ambiguity and complexity out of travel deals by giving travelers unique consumer-focused tools to obtain the deals that best meet their individual needs.

Travelers can easily search and compare more than 10,000 hotel deals -- fifty times more than other leading travel deals sites -- thanks to the standardized presentation of each deal on the DealBase.com site. This is made possible by the Company's innovative Deal Analyzer, which reveals the savings over regular price. "When we started DealBase.com, it was very important for us to empower travelers with as much information about a deal as possible, including the savings versus a non-deal, a la carte price," said David Hehman, Co-Founder and CFO, DealBase.com. "This pricing transparency saves time and removes uncertainty when shopping and gives travelers confidence when they book a deal." On average, consumers save approximately $265 per booking when utilizing DealBase.com.

Any traveler can appreciate a site that enables them to instantly find and compare deals from more than 2500 websites in one place, offering 275+ Las Vegas hotel deals, 600+ New York City hotel deals and 275+ Orlando hotel deals, to name a few popular examples. "Comprehensiveness is an important element of the DealBase.com approach to travel deals. After all, the best deal for a traveler with kids may be a family package that is irrelevant to a couple seeking a romantic weekend," said Sam Shank, Co-Founder and CEO, DealBase.com. "By providing travelers with search and filter options to discover fantastic travel deals, travelers can find the deal that matches their interests and saves them the most money."

DealBase.com, which was founded by industry veterans from SideStep, Expedia and TravelPost.com, is well positioned for today's economic conditions, where finding value is more important than ever. "In a normal economy, people love to find great travel deals -- and in today's economy, people need to find great travel deals," said Howard Love, Co-Founder and Chairman, DealBase.com. "With the most hotel deals on the web, DealBase.com is the perfect resource for travelers to find great hotel discounts and special offers."
