Beat The Brochure is launching an online travel service, which will allow BeatTheBrochure to provide customers with bespoke holidays, with all the benefits of a package, at the very best prices available.
General Manager Peter Panteli says, “We offer customers a chance to build their own holidays online, and we can beat the brochure, every time!” Whatever deals you might have seen in your local travel agent, in the press or online, BeatTheBrochure will help you beat that brochure price. That’s not just for brochure holidays but also for independents who want to book their own flights, hotels, car hire and other travel related products.
“Not so long ago,” Panteli explains, “The high street was the place to book your holidays. These days the best place to get cheap holiday deals is online.” The problem is there are so many holiday price comparison websites that finding the best deal can be just as complicated as ever. With its unique comparison software though, “If there’s a low cost option out there, you’ll find it via BeatTheBrochure,” continues Panteli.
Half of all online travel search is driven by 13 words, with search terms dominated by ‘cheap’ and ‘discount’, according to a survey by digital marketing agency Stickyeyes, forming part of the UK Online Travel and Tourism Intelligence Report presented at the Travolution Summit in London. The findings show that 46% of top keywords contain ‘discount’ or ‘cheap’.
According to Google 80% of travel products in the UK are researched or purchased online, the highest figures for any country in the world.UK consumers made a total of 3.2 million online searches for flights in May 2013, and more than 17% of these were made on mobiles, according to data from Greenlight. ‘Cheap flights’ was also the most popular term searched for on Google UK, accounting for 17% of all flight searches, and 20% of all searches made on mobile.
That’s a lot of interest in cheap holidays, and that interest can make it hard to find what you want. Searching isn’t always as straightforward as you’d hope – searching for ‘Spain holidays’ on Google brings up 169m searches. Spending hours on end scouring the internet just defeats the object – you might as well head for the high street.
But BeatTheBrochure makes finding the lowest cost options simple to find. You can search by destination or by operator – it’s immediate, efficient and highly effective. The underlying technology has multiple suppliers ‘plugged-in‘ and allows you, the user, to make searches across these suppliers in one simple search. As Panteli says, “We are effectively putting the tools of a travel agent into your hands.”
With Thomson, Thomas Cook and First Choice on board as well as a huge range of trusted holiday and travel suppliers, tracking down the best value holidays has suddenly become much simpler. Panteli says, “Our price comparison software is unique in the market and we’re so confident of its capabilities that we happily challenge anyone to find a better price in any brochure, anywhere.”

Beat the Brochure is supported by bricks and mortar travel group Truly Travel Ltd, so it can take advantage of established relationships and long term contracts with the best prices at hotels and destinations all over the world.
