After more than two years of listening to you – our customers – your niggles, your pains and your brilliant suggestions, our new website is now up and running! You had a lot to tell us and we quickly came to realise that it needed more than a lick of paint. So not only have we been hard polishing pixels, we’ve built loads of new features, which we’d like to think will make booking a holiday with us as simple and exciting as living one.
You’ll definitely notice the difference between the new website and the old one straight away, but if you want all of the nitty gritty, the main features are outlined below.
Fresh, vibrant design
Inspiration is the key to planning any holiday, whether you visit the same resort year after year, or you’re looking to spread your wings and try somewhere new. You asked for bigger images, and we’ve gone large! In fact, we’ve sourced over 9,000 new images just for your viewing pleasure.
Holiday search on the go
We know it’s not just about the computer anymore – tablets and mobile devices are where many of you start your holiday search. That’s why we’ve adopted a ‘mobile-first’ design approach to give you the best mobile experience we’ve ever offered, as feature-rich as the good-old-desktop version.
Booking with confidence
We won’t baffle you with technical jargon, but we’ve built the new website on the latest https technology, meaning that you can rest assured that your data and information is safe and secure, for added peace of mind.
Search, share & compare
Our shortlist tool was already well loved, but taking on board your feedback we’ve tweaked this too. We’ve added a handy ‘book now’ button to save you a few clicks, so booking your favourite villa couldn’t be easier.
Raining in Crawley?
Who doesn’t love a bargain, or a last minute getaway? Let’s be honest, we are all after the best value for anything we buy. With a new home for all our deals and offers, plus an enhanced last minute villas page, tailoring your last minute search to your exact requirements has never been easier.
Holiday the way you like it
You’ve been having a great time away with our Travellers’ App, sharing hundreds of images while enjoying a James Villa holiday. We’ve now curated an online album showing them all – so if you haven’t booked yet and are looking for some inspiration, who better to provide it than those who’ve already been there and have got the proverbial t-shirt?
Come fly with me!
You told us that finding the right flight was just as important as finding the right villa, so we’ve given our flight selection screen a brand new home – right at the beginning of the selection process. Not only can you now choose from a range of flight options, you can compare different airports – all on the same screen. So if you want to check out flights from Bristol and see how much they weigh up against flights from Gatwick, you can.
Found the perfect villa on the commute to work, want to check it again on your work computer and book it on your tablet when you get home? Wouldn’t it be helpful if somehow the website remembered your searches so you didn’t have to? Yes, that’s right. We’ve taken care of that too. Simply log in to the website and pick up where you left off last time.
Questions, questions, Questions…
All those things you ask us about your villa, your flight, your car… You’re not the only ones. Which is why we’ve put everything together, all under one roof. Our Help Centre is your first port of call for finding that oh-so-important information. And if you can’t find the answer to your question there, all the relevant contact details are just a short click away…
We are still listening. If you like what you see (or maybe you don’t), please drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org We promise to read each and every message we receive.
