In the face of an uncertain travel economy, luxury travel site Perfect Escapes continues to grow rapidly, having already assisted travelers with more than 20,000 luxury hotel reservations.
Despite recent negative news about the state of luxury travel, reservations have risen steadily since Perfect Escapes launched in late 2006. The site took just 18 months to facilitate its first 10,000 customer reservations, and only another nine months to complete the next 10,000. As word has spread about Perfect Escapes’ unique offerings and true hands-on service, consumers have continued to recognize the luxury value offered by Perfect Escapes. These loyal customers have remained committed to luxury travel – and to booking that travel with Perfect Escapes – as the site’s dramatic rise in recent bookings shows.
Other major Perfect Escapes milestones include:
• October 2006: Perfect Escapes beta site launch.
• December 2006: Perfect Escapes begins taking U.S. hotel bookings.
