These once in a lifetime savings are designed to showcase new features on the Abercrombie & Kent web site, which now incorporates the company's trademark ampersand into images of "& moments, the occasions of surprise and delight that make travel with A&K distinctly inspiring. The functionality of the web site has been improved, allowing visitors to quickly narrow their search from 500 itineraries in 100 countries to just 20, typically in just two to three clicks. In addition to search by Destination, there is now the ability to search by Travel Interest (Extreme Adventures, Journeys for Women, Philanthropic Journeys, etc.) The new design also makes it possible to save itineraries and compare them side-by-side. The web site changes were introduced to Travel Agents January 7 and thus far have attracted more than 120,000 unique users.
