Confronted With A Worldwide Recession The Tourism Industry Needs New Ideas To Attract Tourists

Hotels and tourist places can rent a star or triangle which will be placed on a map and shows a slideshow of the hotel or tourist place if your move the PC mouse over it.
Feb. 20, 2009 - PRLog -- With a huge worldwide recession looming the tourism industry is probably facing the most serious crisis of its history. But extraordinary times demand extraordinary ideas to get the attention of people who have not decided yet whether they should travel or stay at home due to uncertain economic times. A costly vacation is probably the least people think of nowadays. But how should a hotel or tourist destination arouse anyone’s attention in the huge WWW during these tough times?

The website provides a new chance to get that attention. Here visitors can find good hotels and attractive destinations (cities, objects of interest, nature parks, beautiful landscapes etc.) with the probably simplest idea ever provided on in the internet. Hotels and travel destinations are indicated by two different symbols on the world map, a star and a triangle. A star represents a hotel and a triangle an exiting tourist place or a place in a nice natural landscape.
Hotels and tourist destinations can rent a star or a triangle for one or several years. The star or triangle will placed on the appropriate place on the world map (and map of the continent) and represents then virtually the hotel or tourist place. If a visitor of the website moves his mouse over the star or the triangle a tooltip (small window, no new website) appears which contains a small information text that describes the hotel or destination briefly and additionally - that is here the essential – shows a GIF-animation or a flash slideshow which shows the hotel or the tourist place from its most beautiful side, just like on the screenshot above. Just go to the website itself to see how it works.
And the internet surfer casually finds hotels and tourist places that he or she would have never noticed in the huge WWW with all its countless and often boring tourist websites.

Fine hotels and interesting travel destinations only

This is however not yet everything because not every hotel can rent a star. The hotel must be evaluated at least three stars or higher and it must also be able to show good reviews of former guests. These reviews can be checked on the well-known websites for hotel evaluations.
The destinations which want to apply for a triangle must be able to show a certain attractiveness too, regarded from the cultural or/and scenic point of view.

How does it work?

Each hotel and each travel destination can rent a star or triangle for at least one year and annual costs of €10 only. Afterwards the hotel or tourist place can extend the contract for a further year or years, assumed the hotel didn’t suffer any serious quality loss during the rental contract and thus lost the prerequisites.
Hotels and tourist places that receive a promise, that means they fulfil the requirements, can send a GIF animation or flash slideshow of their own together with an information text via e-mail which then appear both in the tooltip. The website is internationally held, that means everything is written in English. This however should not represent a problem for the experienced internet surfer who is not a native speaker but has a basic knowledge of the English language, particularly since the website is held very simply, everything is rather visual and visitors understand offhand what it is all about.
