Oh no, not good news at all. They are the best advertisers I have ever used, excellent service and always willing to help when needed.

Oh no, could well be bad news. I was communicating with them recently and got a gut feeling this was in the offing. The name of the owner had disappeared from the site information. Guess he's built it up and pocketed the gains.I won't have anything to do with the American style of running sites, pure greed at work.
Does anyone know who's the new owner?

Standard. Happy with the enquiries and bookings. The enhanced listings are, IMHO, not worth the money.

When they introduced the three tier subscription we stayed on the cheapest. And our enquiries crashed, we went down to only 2 new customer bookings, the rest were repeats. We selected a temporary promotion in the rankings and we got two bookings in the next 24 hours.
And, the most expensive subscription limits the number of bookings annually.

Tells a story doesn't it?

Tells me the three tier system is a massive price rise.

Too bad, too bad - recently you can no longer exchange e-mail addresses and when entering the booking automatically comes US phone number. Sad Mr. Green
