THE travel search engine formerly known as Bezurk – which News Digital Media recently invested in – has changed its name to It’s also launched a website with improved functionality and search capability. New features include inclusive pricing on airfares and hotels, specific business and first class airline search and a travel research section. CEO Martin Symes said the Bezurk brand had weaknesses. “It was quirky, fun and had a certain irreverence … but it was also hard to remember and spell, particularly if English was not your native language,” he said. “We wanted a new brand and domain name that was easy to recall, type and readily associated with travel.” Symes said will launch localised, multi-lingual country sites over the next few month to ensure greater relevance for Asian travellers.
