VibeAgent Launches My Maps

September 03, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
VibeAgent.com is a new travel 2.0 web site that combines user reviews, meta-search, and social networking to help people find the perfect hotel at the perfect price.

Today the company has launched My Maps and is announcing a partnership with TravelWorm, which brings VibeAgentís total bookable inventory to over 120,000 hotels and makes it the 5th largest hotel site worldwide.

VibeAgent.com helps people make better hotel booking decisions. Site members share hotel reviews and recommendations across their social network of friends, colleagues, and groups. The reviews and social connections on the site in turn drive VibeAgentís proprietary social search algorithm, which serves up personalized hotel recommendations in the order they are likely to appeal to the user. VibeAgentís meta-search engine gathers rates and availability for over 120,000 hotels worldwide from many of the leading hotel and travel web sites, so users can also book their chosen hotels at the best available prices.

ďWe really wanted to make something special for our users by creating this map as a powerful yet elegant platform for exploring the world through their eyes,Ē says VibeAgent CEO Adam Healey.
