InsiderPerks.com offers free travel & tourism videos
Launched in March 2009, InsiderPerks.com is the first website to focus on professionally produced travel and tourism videos. The site offers over 400 videos showcasing the attractions and amenities of over 200 cities from around the world. InsiderPerks.com is an impartial service that chooses what attractions to film based on popularity and uniqueness. It also offers the possibility to book the travel related services through partnerships with the online travel agencies Expedia, or directly on the attraction’s websites.
InsiderPerks.com, the new travel site where travelers get to check out their destinations on video before they book them, announced today the next major step in its expansion. The site plans on adding local travel videos focusing on tourism attractions in each of its featured cities from around the world. The site will also cover additional destinations as it expands its video coverage on a state by state basis, beginning in the United States and then moving on to Europe.
Information at your fingertips
The site, which is free, features videos profiling over 200 destinations around the world. The site was developed for travelers to use unbiased, transparent videos and help them search for key attractions and things to see and do. The site also makes sure to include videos produced by local visitors bureaus, if available, to ensure visitors are always aware of everything each city has to offer. Each city can be viewed in approximately 1 minute, with easy access to a specific attraction with 1 more click. Each video featuring a tourism attraction, restaurant or hotel will include all the information needed to plan a visit including hours of operation, admission pricing if applicable and an overview of the attraction. The site will produce between 10-15 videos to start for each destination, and has already begun filming in Cleveland, OH. The videos will also be available on a wide variety of platforms to ensure maximum exposure for each attraction, including YouTube, TripAdvisor and as a podcast formatted for iPhone and iPod Touch users on iTunes.
Professional videos show it all
Insider Perks pays for and produces all of its videos, filmed and edited by professionals. The videos give users a complete picture of what the attraction has to offer in an informative, unbiased manner, in order to facilitate decision-making.
Useful, unbiased, fun and all in one place
In addition to travel videos, the site also provides map information, nearby sites of interest, weather forecasts, and local news. This information, along with the videos, helps facilitate the user’s search by putting all of the right information at their finger tips, without ever having to leave the site.
