Zaptravel – True Travel Deals


Zaptravel is a web-application for true adventurers. The online travel-booking platform provides its members with carefully researched deals on flights, hotels, activities, and car packages in some of the most sought-after destinations in the world.

Anyone can research the lowest prices on airfare and hotel accommodations. What sets Zaptravel apart from competitors in the online travel marketplace is attention to detail. Researchers for Zaptravel track thousands of the most popular events going on worldwide and then find deals on transportation and accommodations that match up with those events.

Zaptravel will immediately provide you with a list of the best deals based on what you’re looking for. Limit the deals you’re viewing by adding parameters like budget, hotel class, or travel dates, and add any itineraries that seem particularly striking or interesting to your Zaptravel wishlist.
