The company was an early Internet pioneer when Jasons Travel Channel™ (www.jasons.co.nz) was launched in mid 1996.
This has since grown to be one of the region's largest and most active travel websites. The Jasons websites delivered online information to over 2.8 million visitors in 2012 with 8.8 million page views. Jasons also owns other popular websites: Holidayguide.co.nz
, and roomsearch.co.nz
. The iPhone and iPad app was launched in late 2011 and early 2012 respectively with over 7000 downloads in 43 different countries.
Fast forward to 2015 - The Jasons.co.nz website provides detailed regional information and has transitioned into a client-managed referral website. After listening to industry feedback, Jasons made some changes to the functionality on www.jasons.co.nz and www.holidayguide.co.nz. The Jasons booking engine, including widgets, was decommissioned on the 1st July 2015, and the PMS API has been turned off. Potential guests are now linked directly to our advertiser’s own booking engine, allowing them to manage their own reservations. All booking functionality has been removed from the website.
Jasons is continuing to invest in digital platforms, and we’re working on some exciting developments and enhancements to the websites which we expect to launch over the coming months.
