~ Premium travel company provides enriched user experience with enhanced social media features ~


Insight Vacations®, the leader in premium and escorted journeys, is proud to unveil a completely redeveloped new website to offer a completely engaging user experience and showcase the brand’s outstanding itineraries. The new site is supported with strong visuals, fully responsive design, seamless integration of video assets and social media user generated content (UGC) with additional enhanced functionality and personalization opportunities using the Sitecore Digital Marketing System (DMS).“We are thrilled to reveal our stunning, cutting edge new website to inspire travelers and loyal guests worldwide to book their travel with Insight Vacations,” said John Boulding, CEO, Insight Vacations. “As we launch our Signature Year, we are very excited to have a fresh new look and feel to our site to elegantly represent our fantastic trip styles in our new 2015 Europe program and our expandedExotics Collections including itineraries to India, Bhutan and Egypt.”
“We began our digital transformation with a site refresh a year ago and to have this new website fully functioning and launching today is a testament to the tireless efforts put in by the Insight Vacations global web team and our trusted partners at RedWeb and SiteCore,” said Greg Hayes, Global Digital Marketing Manager, Insight Vacations . “We feel the rich and personalized user experience visitors will have when browsing our new website will keep them engaged on our pages longer and direct them to the information they need to easily and effortlessly plan their next trip with Insight.”The website’s new and improved features include:

  • Interactive Maps and Destination Areas – Users can learn more about each destination Insight takes travelers to, view trips that visit a destination of interest, or save a destination to their “Favorites” for future reference.
  • Inspirational Search – An experiential “Inspire Me” search experience allows users to discover trips based on their interests instead of traditional methods of filtering by destination and price. This creates opportunities for users to discover new destinations and itineraries for their consideration.
  • User Accounts, Newly Built Forum and Community Platform – A personalized “My Insight” section features user-curated “Wishlists” and social media login for interaction opportunities with the “Community” and other social platforms.
  • Redesigned Agent Portal – Based on agent feedback, a new layout and interface has been developed to improve the user experience for information discovery and trip bookings.
  • Sitecore DMS Opportunities – Gathering deep insights into the visitor experience, Sitecore DMS identifies patterns based on user geography and interactions and optimizes content and search results for a unique, personalized experience site wide.
