Travelzoo is unique among online travel publishers in that it does not accept banner advertising. Travel advertisers may only promote specific sales and specials on the Travelzoo website that are endorsed by Travelzoo Producers. Travelzoo’s worldwide team of producers research and fact check each offer to confirm their true value before offering an endorsement. Offers on the UK web site are also checked for availability by Travelzoo’s Munich based European Test Booking Centre(TM). This process leads to higher quality content for Internet users and stronger conversions for advertisers.

In March 2007, The Times listed the Travelzoo website as one of the best websites in the UK for holidays.
