dealchecker is a UK-based travel comparison website. The site does not sell any flights or holidays but provides users with a variety of search tools which enables them to compare prices between competing travel companies. dealchecker initially launched as a flight search engine, working on a pay-per-click (PPC) model with its partners. New search tools were added in subsequent years including hotel search in 2008 and cruise search in 2012.[1] In addition to online search tools, dealchecker publishes a weekly newsletter highlighting 20 travel deals, which are all vetted by researchers at dealchecker.

History[edit]

dealchecker is the first website developed by DMC digital. dealchecker experienced early success in the years following its launch – particularly in July 2007, when the site achieved a 102% increase in web traffic [2] and was awarded second place in the Best Travel Website category at the 2007 Telegraph Travel Awards.[3] In November 2010, dealchecker launched a new, luxury travel club, Secret Escapes.[4] The company was purchased in 2011 by French online travel publishers EasyVoyage.[5] This prompted a change in management as Saint and Collins left to develop Secret Escapes. Mark Attwell joined dealchecker as managing director from his previous position as e-commerce chief at comparethemarket.com [6]
