MIX & MATCH LAUNCHES ONLINE CRUISE-BOOKING

Online travel agents Mix & Match have added cruises to their array of product offerings.

The Cruise feature joins Flights, Hotels, Cars, and Insurance functions already available through the service, expanding Kiwis options for booking excursions and trips.

Jeff Leckey, House of Travel General Manager Cruise sees the move from its current online brand Hoot Cruises to Mix & Match Cruise as an evolution for the brand.

“Hoot Cruises is no stranger to Kiwis, having won the CLIA, NZ Online Cruise agency of the year for 2018. Moving to the Mix & Match brand, we continue to offer great value cruise deals but also provide customers with the ability to book a cruise and flights with any airline booked on mixandmatch.co.nz.”

Mix & Match Cruise allows customers to search and book deals from all the major cruise brands live on the site, including local favourites Princess Cruises, P&O, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity Cruises. Joining the ranks are new online booking options with Disney Cruise Line, Seabourn Cruise Line, Crystal, Celestyal, and Holland America Line.

“Our Mix & Match Cruise engine provides best fare pricing, last cabin availability and real-time online booking with instant confirmation,” said Leckey. “It can also compare different cruises side by side, allows customers to choose the type of fare that suits them best, either best price or best value, and introduces a raft of new innovative features that will make booking cruises online much easier and user friendly to cruisers and non-cruisers alike.

“For customers needing time to decide there is even a unique “No Payment” Hold
option on forward bookings, allowing customers to lock in their fare while they finalise their plans, without having to pay a deposit up front.”

Mix & Match Cruise is offering for all launch deals an additional discount of up to $100 per online booking. For more information, visit mixandmatch.co.nz
