Travelzoo Australia has become the latest to join the rush to discount coupon sites, launching Local Deals.  It’s been trialling the concept for a few weeks with great success. Travelzoo SE Asia GM Brad Gurrie says a three night stay at the Banyan Tree Bangkok for A$354, resulted in 911 vouchers being sold, generating 2,733 incremental room nights and more than $320,000 in sales. “In the past two weeks we’ve sold more than 2,000 vouchers and generated just under A$400,000.” Other local players in this market include Spreet, Cudo, OurDeal, JumpOnIt, Scoopon.
