Even a recession, a new travel site sprouts up


With the online world filled with travel Web sites, another is joining the fray today, with the goal of offering last-minute offers and sales to travelers who are looking for bargains and are flexible with their travel dates.

Voyij.com, which debuts today, is similar to Kayak.com, in that it can aggregate travel sites and find the best deal on specific dates. Voyij does the same, but lets people explore and discover more options by finding the best sales, said Brent Stewart, CEO of Voyij.

The site deals in "distressed inventory" that might otherwise go unsold and thus, unused. In other words, these are sales and last-minute offers that hotels and airlines are offering because they don't want the beds or seats to go empty.
