A moving image + guru's advice + special offers to facilitate to your holiday plans
Published: 08 Jan 2008
travelguru.tv is designed to make your holiday choices simple, offering a combination of exclusive full screen video reports, the advice of travel gurus and specially negotiated special offers.
According to the company, launch 'gurus' include John Carter, David Wickers, Cath Urquhart and Paul Gogarty. The guru's role is 'the friend who has been there', sharing with the viewer the benefit of their first hand experience and independent comment. travelguru.tv uses the very latest Vividas1 Internet broadcasting technology.
"The videos can be viewed full screen at broadcast quality and capture the essence of the holiday experience in a way that has been impossible up until now," stated the company, based in East Grinstead, West Sussex.
John Carter, one of the pioneers of 'BBC Holiday' back in 1969 and presenter on Thames Television's 'Wish you were here..?' is fully behind the concept.
"travelguru.tv marks a new era for researching and booking your holiday on the web. It is just like watching a TV travel programme but with the advantage of having all the itinerary detail and booking information to hand."
Managing Director, Cathy Bartrop said: "travelguru.tv offers a refreshing antidote to the plethora of 'cheapest deal' and 'dynamic packaging' websites – our holiday recommendations offer exceptional value but we recognise that not all holiday decisions are based on price alone. Our aim is to become the UK's most trusted, independent travel information website for discerning travellers seeking new ideas and quality package holidays. Watch the videos, listen to our guru's advice and, if you like what you see, make a booking."
