Travelzoo launched the local daily deals section (on hotels, vacations, cruises, car rentals, airfares, holiday packages and the like) last year in the US and soon expanded to other markets (they were known for sending weekly emails with travel deals before this and had a substantial subscriber list of 20+ million users).
The Indian edition of the site publishes the renowned Top 20® deals from various travel agents / suppliers. TZOO also publishes the top travel deal of the day. Travelzoo India site does not include any other content unlike its sister sites which also provide Entertainment and Local deals apart from basic features and content. There are hardly any promotions or ads – online or offline – evident from the Alexa rank hovering over 13mil. So, is Travelzoo testing Indian waters?
Major Indian deal sites have already started offering Travel deals and have an exclusive section for it in their site - SnapDeal Getaways & Groupon India (SoSasta) . The travel deals space is quite lucrative and there are some established players like must see india and some niche ones like Vamoose. Watch this space for more updates!
