BookingBuddy.com to Deliver Great Travel Deals via RSS Feeds

New Service Expands Reach and Provides Further Convenience for Users

BOSTON, March 7 /PRNewswire/ — BookingBuddy.com, the authority on travel search, today announced the site’s latest version of RSS (Really Simple Syndication) travel feeds for its highly sought-after travel deals from major travel providers. BookingBuddy is utilizing RSS technology to create feeds that bring together great deals from hundreds of travel partners, providing the most up-to-date travel deal information to the site’s users.

“BookingBuddy’s RSS feeds are useful for the average Internet user who regularly visits multiple travel sites in search of great travel deals,” said Krista Pappas, senior vice president of Smarter Living, Inc., parent company of BookingBuddy. “Now, BookingBuddy visitors can simply click on the RSS link on the site and have travel deals directly sent to them. By viewing the feeds through an RSS reader, like My Yahoo!, Bloglines and Feedster, travelers eliminate the need to search multiple sites for the best deal. For example, MyYahoo users can simply click on ‘Add Content’, do a search for ‘BookingBuddy.com,’ and then add the deal feeds to their MyYahoo homepage. It’s that easy.”

BookingBuddy’s RSS travel feeds are available through all reader technologies and enable consumers to stay updated with information on the ever-changing travel fares and destinations they are interested in. RSS readers allow users to gather and personalize any content from across the web and view it in one place.

“The inclusion of RSS on our site furthers our goal of providing travelers with high-quality travel deals — wherever, whenever and however they need it,” continued Pappas. “As a top travel search site, BookingBuddy is constantly looking at ways to enable customers to find great travel deals and you can expect to see more features and enhancements like this in 2006.”

The RSS-enabled feeds on BookingBuddy will highlight a variety of travel deals and information, including:

— System-wide fare sales, last-minute Web fares and other
airfare discounts
— Discount rates from major hotel brands, Web specials and other great
hotel offers
— Discount vacation packages, bundled air and hotel savings and other
