ZuBlu launches new interactive travel discovery tool



ZuBlu has announced the launch of its new search tool – putting the power of discovery firmly in your hands.

The travel sector may have slowed over the last year, but the team at dive travel business ZuBlu has been hard at work. Over the past 12 months, ZuBlu have expanded their ever-growing list of suppliers and meticulously redesigned their search tool to deliver the best user journey possible. Booking an eco-friendly dive trip has never been easier.

ZuBlu’s redesigned search lies at the heart of the company’s post-pandemic business strategy focused on providing its guests the best possible underwater experience.

“As travel restrictions change and countries begin to open up their borders, we believe that dive travellers will be very much focused on getting back into the water as soon as possible. Our new search means that guests will be able to easily find their perfect trip, one that is sustainable and has a lasting, positive impact. And with ever-changing regulations, the role of the travel agent has never been so important.”  says Matt Oldfield, co-founder of ZuBlu.

How it works:

The updated search tool caters to two types of travellers – those who know what they want, and those who need a little inspiration.

Direct Search:

Know where you want to go? Dive straight into the direct search where you can enter a destination, your preferred dates, and guest numbers. Then, effortlessly scroll through the list of available eco-friendly suppliers. You can also filter based on price, rating, amenities, conservation certification etc, to make finding your dream trip just that much easier.

Discovery Tool:

Need some extra inspiration? ZuBlu’s unique discovery tool will help you find the perfect holiday based on what you want to see, when you want to go and where. Simply select what you’d like to see from multiple underwater experiences, including vibrant coral reefs, wrecks, sharks and more. Then choose when and where you’d like to travel, and let the ZuBlu discovery tool do the rest.

If you’re not sure when or where you’d like to go, you can skip either of these sections and let the discovery tool inspire you with the ultimate destinations and best seasons for your chosen marine experiences. It couldn’t be any easier.
