Planning a destination wedding or honeymoon can be stressful enough, but you can't forget to properly research your accommodations. If you’ve been to your chosen destination before, you might already have a place in mind at which to lay your head. If you’re traveling to a destination for the first time, however, it’s important to make sure you have the right home-away-from-home for one of the most romantic trips of your life! There are websites, which allow you two view options all over the world at varying price points and with reviews. However, these sites can sometime be limiting in terms what they actually search for.
Bill Beckler, former Director of Innovation at Travelocity, saw what the booking business was missing and made it his mission to create the most comprehensive booking site on the market. What resulted was AllTheRooms.com. The average traveler searches on up to 15 sites before making a reservation and most of the sites offer the same results. With AllTheRooms.com, its creators’ goal was to have you search less and see more. This one-of-a-kind search engine aggregates all available accommodation options quickly and effieciently.
The biggest difference between AllTheRooms.com and other booking sites like hotels.com and Travelocity is that AllTheRooms shows you all types of accommodations. No two travelers are alike, so ATR’s creators fused resort and hotel options with unexpected locations like boats and even igloos. The site utilizes the Internet’s top resources and pools together hotels (Booking.com, Hotels.com, Expedia and Agoda), vacation rentals (Airbnb, Homeaway, VRBO and 9Flats), secret deals (Last Minute Travel, Hotwire and Priceline Express) and everything in between (Hostelworld, GlampingHub, Groupon and Jetsetter).
AllTheRooms.com currently has five million lodgings on their roster and aims to expand to seven million by the end of 2015. The site is perfect for couples who don’t want to be limited to traditional hotels or resorts and want to explore all their accommodation options for the destination wedding or honeymoon.
