According to this post on Channel News Asia, Bezurk will provide Todayonline with a database of dozens of hotel suppliers, allowing users to search for the latest information including availability and pricing on over 100,000 hotels worldwide. After comparing multiple deals and making their selection, users will be redirected to the Bezurk site to make their booking.
This deal is clearly an ace for Bezurk. Inspired by the success of travel search engines like Expedia and Priceline in the US, Bezurk hopes to recreate this experience for frustrated Asia Pacific travellers. According to their website, Bezurk comes to the aid of numerous people who go "berserk" searching for travel information on the Internet.
However, the results turned out to be pretty disappointing. The minimum price that Bezurk's search returned was almost S$200 above what my travel agent offered. Of course, it wasn't the same airline, but that wasn't one of my considerations. I was simply looking for the most economical way to fly home. And I couldn't find it using Bezurk.
Well, to give them a break, Bezurk's flight search engine is still in Beta and they are perhaps in the process of adding more airlines to their database. I will definitely return to the site the next time I need tickets. Hopefully, I am not disappointed again.
