Cruise West, Royal Olympic, And Mediterranean Shipping Cruises Sail Into REZconnect® Technologies'
Net-To-Phone-To-Net Reservations System

Englewood Cliffs, NJ (October 2, 2001) - Three more cruise lines signed on to use REZconnect, the unique net-to-phone-to-net reservation system, announced Stephanie Abrams, Executive Vice President of REZconnect Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:otcbb:REZT). Royal Olympic Cruises, Cruise West, and Mediterranean Shipping Cruises join Regal Cruises on the growing list of niche market companies to use REZconnect for cruise reservations in real-time, making the reservations process more efficient for travel agents booking their clients at cruise lines' websites and for clients to book cruises on travel websites.

"The uniqueness of REZconnect lies in its delivery of web reservations by telephone to the reservations agent," Abrams states. "REZconnect technology for vendors, whose product is sold by telephone, bridges the gap for virtual travel agencies to sell cruises which cannot be booked in real-time. REZconnect delivers reservations to cruise lines' telephones where reservation agents press numbers on their telephone key pads to send confirmations to the web user's screen. Companies do not have to change the way they do business nor make any investments in expensive technology to capture web business in real-time," Abrams explains. "These cruise companies were selected because their combined itineraries blanket the globe, offering a world of cruising with excellent companies providing split-second responses to REZconnect reservations."

REZconnect selected: Royal Olympic for its exotic itineraries in the Mediterranean, Greek Isles, Central and South America; Cruise West for its intimate yacht-style cruising from Seattle to Alaska, Mexico, Japan, and California cruising; Mediterranean Shipping Cruises for its Caribbean and Mediterranean itineraries with Italian hospitality; Regal Cruises for its Caribbean, Central America, and Canada/New England sailings from Florida, Philadelphia, New York, and Savannah, providing diverse experiences from U.S. ports.

There is market attractiveness for REZconnect because many vendors' websites lack real-time reservation capability. REZconnect's relationship with these cruise lines achieves another goal in the company's strategy to provide technology in a B2B environment, says REZconnect Technologies' President & CEO, Michael Brent. "Our business plan positions the company as an ASP for hospitality, entertainment and travel. Our relationship with these cruise lines allows us to integrate REZconnect into their growth plans for more reservations in a time-and-cost-efficient manner, and to create sales from on-line marketing," Brent explains. "We are delighted to be part of that."

The company has created strategic partnerships with travel portals, including Worldspan, and with to provide real-time restaurant reservations. "REZconnect creates a level playing field for niche market companies to provide real-time reservations like their mega-competitors without costly investments nor changing the way they do business," Abrams states.
