Reserving accommodations in Seminole County is now as simple as the click of a mouse thanks to the JackRabbit -powered booking widget on the Seminole County Convention and Visitors Bureau's (CVB) website. The cutting edge online tool, which went live on January 20, 2011, allows website visitors to purchase hotel or motel room nights quickly and conveniently, without having to go to another booking agent site or picking up the telephone.

"We are so excited about the addition of the JackRabbit software to our award-winning website and believe it will bring significant new business to the area," stated Seminole County CVB Executive Director, Sharon Sears. "Business, leisure and group travelers, alike, can take advantage of this handy tool from any page on the CVB's website to book their accommodations."

The industry leading JackRabbit software is available for any Seminole County CVB Website visitor to book accommodations up to a year in advance. Users may choose the area which they would like to stay as well as the type of accommodations, including hotels, motels, camp grounds, bed and breakfasts, lodges, and vacation rentals. Once the user has chosen specific dates, type of accommodations and location, the software provides detailed information about the facilities' amenities, prices, website and any special rates that are available at that time. This one-stop booking agent makes planning travel simple for even the most novice computer consumer.

The addition of this high-tech software is also an amazing benefit for area facilities. Unlike other online booking agents that charge hefty fees for hoteliers to use, the JackRabbit booking widget on the CVB's website is free of charge for hoteliers. The Seminole County CVB has graciously provided this exciting feature to help drive business to the area's accommodations.

Seminole County's numerous hotels and bed and breakfasts are, on average, one-third lower than comparable lodging in neighboring Orlando. New hotels, including the Hyatt Place, Residence Inn and Westin, offer outstanding service for a fraction of the price.
