Tourico Holidays(R) Launching Vacation Home Rentals


ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


     Company Will Offer 10,000+ Properties in U.S. and Central America and

                             40,000+ in Europe


    Tourico Holidays(R) announced today that it is introducing a new vacation

home rental program unlike any other in the travel industry. Offering a wide

range of properties that includes more than 10,000 vacation properties in the

U.S. and Central America and more than 40,000 in Europe, this new service

will feature real-time inventory and automatic confirmation of reservations,

so the process will be similar to that of booking a hotel room. The program

will launch in early December 2010 with European product added throughout the

first quarter of 2011.


    The vacation homes vary in style and include stand-alone houses, villas,

apartment units and condominiums. Importantly, each of the properties is

booked through professional management companies, so travelers will not have

to concern themselves with the many uncertainties that often come with

booking rental homes through individual property owners.


    "For years, our global customer base has asked us for vacation rental

lodging as part of our comprehensive travel offerings and we're excited to

now present instant, confirmed vacation rental reservations," said Amir

Kalmar, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Travel Holdings,

Inc., the parent company of Tourico Holidays. "Not only will it be as easy as

booking a hotel room, but travelers will be able to enjoy the space, privacy,

and amenities that can only be found in vacation homes. We now have vacation

homes to fit every traveler's wants and needs-- multiple bedrooms, unique

locations, gourmet kitchens, private pools and more."


    The properties in the U.S. and Central America are located in 35

destinations, including the Gulf Shores in Alabama; multiple ski resort towns

in Colorado, California and Utah (including Vail, Aspen, Park City and Lake

Tahoe); the beaches of Hawaii; and warm-weather destinations in Florida

(including Orlando), South Carolina, Mexico, and Costa Rica; among others.


    The vacation homes in Europe will include properties in coastal and

countryside settings in Britain and Ireland, as well as everything from

secluded forest lodges that are ideal for romantic getaways to homes near

theme parks for family holidays.


    Learn more at WTM 2010 in London, England. Tourico Holidays will be

located in the Global Village, booth number GV465.
