Passover Listings Encourages Travelers To Post Reviews About Their Programs

(Courtesy of Passover Listings) When Passover begins this year on April 15, thousands of families across the country will be spending the holiday at luxurious, five-star resorts, enjoying first-class kosher-for-Pesach food, amenities, top-notch lectures and concerts, children’s entertainment, schmoozing and more.

Before these kosher travelers go away for Passover, however, Passoverlistings.com—which describes itself as the Yelp or TripAdvisor for Passover programs—wants to remind people about the importance of writing reviews about their experiences. Triple-verified reviews from authenticated emails with text, star ratings, photos and video can help future travelers make informed choices about where they want to go for their Pesach holiday.

The reviews can focus on the quality of the food, the strength and responsiveness of the program operator, the ease of the overall experience, and the experience of the staff.

“Be as specific as possible,” Doni Schwartz, co-founder and CSO of Passoverlistings.com, said. “We want reviews that help people the way previous travelers were helped when they were looking for the perfect Passover program. Ultimately, writing a review is like paying it forward.”

Composing a review on Passoverlistings.com is simple, easy and user-friendly. On a program listings page, a prominent button says, “Submit a review.” Clicking that leads to a short form asking for your username, email, a title for your review and the text of your review. You can select how many stars you want to rate the program—from 1 to 5—and even add photographs from your trip.

“Including images of the food, the hotel room or the surroundings really brings the review to life as opposed to only including words,” Passoverlistings.com co-founder and CTO Daniel Kramer said. “We encourage people to have fun writing their reviews while being honest and detailed about their experiences. Time and time again, we hear from customers how much they relied on reviews on our website when planning their Passover getaways.”

There are thousands of reviews on Passoverlistings.com about hundreds of programs, each evaluating the hotel, food, cost, entertainment and ambiance of the programs. Some reviewers offer in-depth stories about everything they encountered while on a program, while other reviews are shorter and more to the point. In every case, reviews that are posted are opinions or one’s personal experiences.

“When planning a Passover vacation, having so many options can be daunting,” Estee Feinberg, a user of Passoverlistings.com who traveled with her family for Pesach last year to Portugal, said. “But being able to access reviews from those who have firsthand experiences on these programs was invaluable for me and my family. We felt like we knew exactly what we would be getting, because of the reviews we read.”

“Including images of the food, the hotel room or the surroundings really brings the review to life as opposed to only including words,” Passoverlistings.com co-founder and CTO Daniel Kramer said. “We encourage people to have fun writing their reviews while being honest and detailed about their experiences. Time and time again, we hear from customers how much they relied on reviews on our website when planning their Passover getaways.”

This year, Pesach programs are taking place in exciting locations near and far, including Miami, Florida, the Bahamas, Mexico, New Jersey and San Diego as well as Morocco, Italy, Greece and Dubai. For those traveling this year, when you have a spare moment, taking the time to visit the Passover Listings website and providing a review will be a service for those traveling in the future. You will be joining countless others who attended a Passover program in the past and offered words about their experiences.

The reviews are also helpful for program operators who can track feedback about their programs all in one single place. For many operators, these reviews create opportunities to improve upon their programs, and they can respond to reviews instantaneously. Those in the kosher travel business know reputation is everything. Therefore, they put a lot of weight on what is said about their programs in reviews.

Those in the kosher Passover travel space also share reviews through the Passover Programs Reviews Facebook group. Created by Passoverlistings.com, the group has more than 6,655 members and is a highly active community of people sharing their thoughts, feelings and opinions about various programs. The result is increased transparency about what each program has to offer. Those in the group are equipping themselves with knowledge before making the leap and booking a program.

“At Passover Listings, we like to say the most important thing for customers is to have a great time when they go on their Passover program,” Schwartz and Kramer said. “The second most-important thing is to write a review. We want future travelers to take advantage of the firsthand insights about these programs. Nothing can be more helpful. To those going away this year, safe travels and chag sameach. And remember, when you return, post a review!”
