Using the site is relatively easy, just key in your destination, your date of travel, and SuperTravel.My will compare and search for the best tour packages or hotels for you. It promises no hidden charges, as well as instant confirmation for your bookings.

Malaysia pushing for Tourism in 2014
Tourism in Malaysia is booming, especially when the country just announced over 1,000 new holiday packages in Malaysia yesterday. The new holiday packages are part of the Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia (CC1M), launched in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2014. The packages range in price from as low as RM19.90 (S$7.60) to RM40,000 for a luxury tour. The packages were developed with the cooperation of 297 tour operators from all over the country.
With the country’s push for tourism, online travel site such as SuperTravel.my is bound to benefit from it. As of September last year, Malaysia recorded RM46 billion of tourism revenue with 23 million tourist arrivals. The Malaysian government expects to draw 28 million tourists and earn RM76 billion (US$23 billion). Not a hard feat for Malaysia. Tourism arrivals have been increasing each year and tourism is the third biggest income earner for the country.
While the website did not reveal how much traffic it currently has nor did it reveal the number of successful bookings, with the increased interest in Malaysia tourism as well as the traffic boost from its main site Lelong.my, SuperTravel.my stands a high chance to be one of Malaysia’s main online travel site.
