History of CheaperVacations.com
The first website
CheaperVacations.com was born in 2002, in an 80 square foot office located behind a traditional agency, receiving requests only by email.
The same year, the first website of the agency was created. The original idea was to develop a travel website that would offer trips on clearance.
The website was initially static and offered a showcase of the travel agency and allowed the internet users to send a request by email for their trip.
On our side, we would do the necessary research in order to offer the best possible price and this, always by email.
It is however important to mention that the profit margins were superior to what we have today and that the differences between our fees and the fees clients would find in an agency were often several hundred of dollars less by file.
If this offer was really tempting for some, it was however enough for others to doubt of the validity of the offer.
At the same moment, all sorts of rumours regarding CheaperVacations.com were born, and we had to fight against them. In order to allay clients fears, we focused on our location and our origins; a 100% Quebec agency in Trois-Rivières, small and tranquil town. Slowly but surely, we achieved our goal.
This first website for the agency… purely demonstrative, the website mainly allowed the client to visualize the agency as a whole (360° view).
Each year, the website is improved, updated and offers more sections and new products.
CheaperVacations.com is now really successful…
Welcome to everyone in this continuous adventure!
