ebookers Launches Tool to Transform Layovers into Extended Holidays


Take Over Your Layover personalises travel experiences

LONDON – April 5, 2017 –, one of Europe’s premier online travel agencies, announced the release of Take Over Your Layover, an initiative that helps travellers extend their holiday by transforming layover time into a customised travel experience.

Take Over Your Layover is an online tool that gives users recommendations on attractions and activities in and around the London Heathrow Airport. Recommendations are based on three factors – length of layover, travel companions, and mood. Ebookers launched Take Over Your Layover as part of its latest commitment to more personalised travel experiences.

The tool takes away the hassle of research from the traveller so anyone connecting through Heathrow Airport can have a more enjoyable layover. It provides the best options for food and drink, health and wellness, cultural experiences and sightseeing. Locals have also contributed their insider tips for authentic experiences.

For a traveller with limited time, the tool will suggest ways they can explore the terminals that they may not have otherwise been aware of. Those with a longer layover will receive suggestions on local gems in surrounding neighbourhoods. Travellers can also browse places to rest and resources for navigating the area.

Take Over Your Layover can be accessed at, whether you’re en route or pre-planning for an upcoming trip.
