ePronto.ru - search and comparison of prices for tourists
ePronto.ru - a free service for comparing prices for hotels, flights and car rental in all major booking systems
Have you ever thought that your neighbors in an airplane chair paid a different price for this flight? Or that other guests at the hotel cost the same room 20% less? All tourists can be divided into beginners and experienced.
The process of booking a hotel over the Internet has become as simple as opening a mailbox. The only difference is that you still need to enter a card for payment and a minute later in your mail will be a voucher for check-in.
All major booking systems are almost identical: the same descriptions and photos, reviews. The main difference is the PRICES. Each agent sets the extra charge for a number independently. There are often price wars between booking agents in the hospitality industry. Using special software that tracks competitors' prices in GDS (Global Distribution Systems), agents compete with each other in attracting customers. For example, Booking.com will offer a room for 75 euros for one hotel and one date, HRS.de for 69 euros, and Hotels.com may charge 60 euros for marketing wars. ePronto compares prices in all major reservation systems and shows where the best price is. For example, like this: The
main objective of the service is to save time and money while preparing for the trip.
Now prices can be compared with one click and there is no need to view all reservation systems. Similar to the search for hotel prices, we have selected tools for airline tickets and car rental. Instead of searching on the websites of airlines and car rental companies, with one search you get all the best prices in the chosen direction.
For beginners, step-by-step booking guides with screenshots were compiled for each section.
This service is made primarily for those who often independently buy tickets and book hotels via the Internet: independent travelers and business tourists . This is not a service for "package" tourists who buy permits in the offices of tour operators - for them there are Ride, Bronni and others systems.
The idea for the project was born out of my hobby. I have been traveling on my own for eight years. I remember the first time I bought a ticket on Expedia.com and booked a hotel with my Visa Electron. It was both scary and interesting. But later everything turned out to be so simple that after that I no longer imagined a journey through intermediary travel agencies. The desire to share the emotions of freedom of choice and the simplicity of planning your trips with friends grew into a desire to create a project in which you can put together the most convenient tools under one roof.
Why now? In the tourist segment of the Runet, there has been a revival in the last year. The websites of online airline ticket agencies, hotel reservation systems and social networks for tourists began to appear. The number of offers is growing rapidly and you need a tool that will help you navigate the flow of prices. Under such circumstances, in 2004 the United States tourist aggregator Kayak.com appeared - a popular service for searching and comparing prices for hotels and flights in all booking systems.
