Loxtock Founders Star on House Hunters International

Industry: Internet & Online
October 05, 2012, 10:16 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- LOXTOCK.COM is known for being the mother of comparison websites, where you can compare just about everything. It is not known for making guest star appearances on reality TV programs.

Which is why it was a pleasant surprise for the website to be featured in the latest episode of the hit TV show, House Hunters International.

House Hunters International filmed Loxtock founders, Alastair Loxton and Sara O'Shea, move from their hometown of Brisbane, Australia to the shores of Lake Garda in Italy.

“Working with the film crew was a fantastic experience. We'd definitely like to spend more time in front of a camera - it was a real adrenaline rush!” said founder and CEO Alastair Loxton.

“Sara and I have put everything into Loxtock and it's wonderful to share our story with the world.”

Mr Loxton gave a brief introduction for Loxtock to the audience as part of the background story behind their move to Europe.

“Loxtock allows you to compare the lot… lock, stock and barrel. There are so many groovy websites out there and we wanted to put the best of the best under one roof,” he said.

When Alastair and Sara first moved to Italy they used Hotels.Loxtock.com to find the best place to stay while house hunting in Riva Del Garda.

“Our site makes it very easy for travellers,” said co-founder Sara O'Shea.

“You simply search for where you are going and Loxtock crawls hundreds of websites to give you a complete list, with a range of prices for each hotel.”

The travel business comes naturally to Sara and Al, who continuously travel the world.

“We know which technology to use to book the cheapest flights; to book a hotel for less than the advertised price; and how to save money booking tours and rental cars in advance,” said Mr Loxton.

“Our goal was simple: talk to the people behind the technology for each service and put it all together.”

Alastair and Sara moved to Riva Del Garda, Italy in order to translate Loxtock.com into Italian, and then expand across Europe.

“Living in Italy has always been a dream of ours and Riva Del Garda is a perfect base because we are only hours away from France, Switzerland, Germany and Austria,” said Miss O'Shea.
