Travelzoo common stock to our "Netsurfer Stockholders" was not registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

SUMMARY This summary highlights certain information contained elsewhere in this proxy statement and prospectus. This summary is not complete and does not contain all of the information that is important to you. You should read the entire proxy statement and prospectus and attachments carefully, especially the merger agreement. When we refer to "Travelzoo," unless the context otherwise indicates, we are referring to Travelzoo.com Corporation, a Bahamas International Business Corporation, when discussing our business as conducted prior to completion of the merger described herein, including the parts of our operations which have been conducted through Silicon Channels Corporation dba Travelzoo.com Sales, Inc. When we refer to our operations following completion of the merger, we are referring to Travelzoo Inc., a Delaware corporation,. References to "we," "our" and "us" have the same meanings. Travelzoo Travelzoo provides online marketing solutions for the travel industry. Our website, www.Travelzoo.com, and our Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter enable travel companies to promote their special offers in a fast, flexible and cost-effective manner. More than 150 companies use our services. Our customers include: Alamo Rent-A-Car, American Airlines Vacations, Budget Rent A Car, Hertz, Holiday Inn, Lowestfare.com, Park Place Entertainment, Starwood Hotels and United Airlines. Our offices are located at 800 West El Camino Real, Suite 180, Mountain View, California 94040. Our telephone number at that location is (650) 943-2400. Revenues and Profitability Our revenues are primarily derived from advertising fees on our website. Revenues have grown from approximately $84,000 for the period from May 21, 1998 (inception) to December 31, 1998, to approximately $2.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000. We have had nine consecutive quarters of profitability, with pre-tax income increasing from approximately $35,000 in the period ended December 31, 1998 to approximately $744,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2000. Our Market Opportunity We believe that the Internet provides better opportunities for the advertising of special travel offers, and that the industry has not yet taken full advantage of these opportunities. We believe we are in a position to become a leading provider of online marketing solutions for the travel industry, primarily because: o We have established a successful and profitable identity in the market o We have built a high quality client base which continues to grow o Our solution allows travel companies to - update their listings at any time - remove offers which have sold out - have real-time performance tracking so they can optimize their campaigns. Our History Travelzoo was founded by Ralph Bartel in 1998 as a Bahamas corporation. Following the organization of Travelzoo in 1998, we offered shares in Travelzoo to visitors who registered on our website. We limited the offer to approximately 700,000 "Netsurfer Stockholders," each of whom received three shares plus up to 3

an additional seven shares for referrals. We completed a two-for-one split of our common stock on December 1, 2000, which also applied to the shares held by the Netsurfer Stockholders. We believe that our offering was the first offering of "free shares" over the Internet. Mr. Bartel, who was a resident of Germany at the time, was not advised by U.S. securities counsel, and believed that the offering of the shares could be made without any registration or qualification with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or other regulatory body since no payment was received for the shares. Although Mr. Bartel received an inquiry from the SEC about the issuance of shares to the Netsurfer Stockholders, the SEC has not asserted any violation of law by Travelzoo. However, we understand that the SEC takes the position that programs for issuing shares such as our Netsurfer Stockholder program should be registered with the SEC. In connection with the merger, we are registering the shares to be offered in the merger under the U.S. Securities Act. Silicon Channels Corporation, formerly an affiliate of Travelzoo Bahamas, was incorporated in California on September 28, 1998 with Ralph Bartel as the sole stockholder. Silicon Channels did business under the name "Travelzoo.com Sales, Inc." On October 10, 1998, Travelzoo.com Corporation and Silicon Channels Corporation entered into a letter agreement whereby Silicon Channels agreed to manage the technical platform, marketing, customer support and billing for the classified publishing business of the Travelzoo.com website in return for a 5% commission on the quarterly net income from such business. The October 10, 1998 agreement was subsequently replaced by a Service Agreement dated January 2, 1999. In the January 2, 1999 Agreement, Silicon Channels agreed to perform all operation services with respect to the Travelzoo.com website in return for 50% of the income before taxes generated from the operation of the Travelzoo.com website. All assets, other than the domain name Travelzoo.com, used in the operation of the Travelzoo.com website were owned by Silicon Channels. As the Travelzoo business continued to grow, the Board of Directors determined that it would be advisable to combine Silicon Channels with Travelzoo, in order to avoid the need to address ongoing issues of allocation of responsibilities, expenses and revenues, and the Board initiated discussions with Mr. Bartel on the terms of such a transaction. On January 22, 2001, pursuant to an agreement between Travelzoo and Silicon Channels, and based on a fairness opinion received from an independent investment banking firm as discussed below under "Certain Transactions Between Travelzoo And Its Affiliates--Silicon Channels Corporation" on page 43, Mr. Bartel contributed the shares of Silicon Channels to a newly formed Delaware corporation, Travelzoo Delaware, which was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Travelzoo Bahamas. Travelzoo Delaware was the surviving entity in the merger and the business which has been conducted by Silicon Channels is being continued by Travelzoo Delaware. Travelzoo Delaware is now owned 58% by Travelzoo Bahamas and owned 42% by Ralph Bartel and will be the surviving corporation of the merger as described below. The Merger We are asking the stockholders of Travelzoo Bahamas to approve the merger of Travelzoo Bahamas with and into Travelzoo Delaware. Travelzoo Delaware has already approved the merger. In the merger, the stockholders of Travelzoo Bahamas who follow the procedures specified in the merger agreement will receive one share of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware for each share of common stock of Travelzoo Bahamas they hold. You will be required to provide us with a mailing address, because Delaware law requires that we provide certain notices to our stockholders by mail. The Special Meeting; Shares Entitled to Vote Our special stockholder meeting will be held at [---------] on [---------], 2001 at [--]. The board of directors has fixed [---------], 2001 as the record date for determining the stockholders who are eligible to vote at the meeting. A majority of the outstanding shares of our common stock must be present at the 4

meeting in person or by proxy, and holders of at least a majority of the outstanding shares of our common stock must vote to approve the merger in order for the merger to be completed. Ralph Bartel, who holds approximately 52% of the outstanding shares of our common stock, has indicated that he intends to vote in favor of the merger. See "The Special Meeting" on page 22. Risk Factors See "Risk Factors," starting on page 7, to read about factors you should consider. Dissenters' Rights of Appraisal Any of our stockholders who disapprove of the proposed transaction and follow the dissent procedure under Section 81 of the Bahamas International Business Companies Act 1989 may be entitled to receive payment of the fair value of their shares. For a more detailed explanation of these rights, see "Rights of Dissenters" on page 23. Tax Consequences of the Transaction In most cases, stockholders who exchange their shares in Travelzoo Bahamas for shares in Travelzoo Delaware should not recognize income, gain or loss for United States federal income tax purposes in connection with the exchange. See "Certain United States Federal Income Tax Consequences" on page 17. Accounting Treatment of the Transaction The merger will be accounted for similar to a pooling-of-interests under the "as if pooling" method for combinations of entities under common control. Under this method of accounting, each of Travelzoo Bahamas' and Travelzoo Delaware's historical recorded assets and liabilities will be carried forward to the combined company at their historical cost. In addition, the operating results reported in the combined financial statements of Travelzoo.com Corporation and affiliate presented elsewhere in this proxy statement and prospectus will become the historical results of operations for Travelzoo Delaware. Costs of the merger will be charged to operations as incurred. 5

RISK FACTORS You should carefully consider the risk factors listed below and the other information contained in this proxy statement and prospectus before deciding to vote for the merger. Investing in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. Any or all of the risks listed below could have a material adverse effect on our business, our quarterly and annual operating results or financial condition, which could cause the market price of our stock to decline or cause substantial volatility in our stock price, in which event the value of your common stock could decline. You should also keep these risk factors in mind when you read forward-looking statements. We have identified all of the material risks which we believe may affect our business and the principal ways in which we anticipate that they may affect our business or financial condition. Risks Related to Our Financial Condition and Business Model Our limited operating history makes our business difficult to evaluate. We were incorporated and began generating revenues in May 1998. Accordingly, we have only a limited operating history for you to evaluate our business. As a new company, we face risks and uncertainties relating to our ability to successfully implement our business plan. You must consider the risks, expenses and uncertainties that an early stage company like ours faces. These risks include uncertainty whether we will be able to: o increase awareness of the Travelzoo brand; o attract and retain additional travel companies listing their special offers with us; o attract additional Internet users to www.Travelzoo.com; o increase the functionality of our products and services; o maintain our current, and develop new, business relationships; o respond effectively to competitive pressures; and o continue to develop and upgrade our technology. If we are unsuccessful in addressing these risks and uncertainties, our business could be materially adversely affected. We cannot be sure to sustain profitability. Although we have been profitable for nine consecutive quarters, there is no assurance that we will continue to be profitable. We forecast our future expense levels based on our operating plans and our estimates of future revenues. We may find it necessary to accelerate expenditures relating to our sales and marketing efforts or otherwise increase our financial commitment to creating and maintaining brand awareness among travel companies and Internet users. If our revenues grow at a slower rate than we anticipate, or if our spending levels exceed our expectations or cannot be adjusted to reflect slower revenue growth, we may not generate sufficient revenues to sustain profitability. In this case, the value of your shares could be reduced. You should not rely on prior operating results as an indication of our future results because they are subject to significant fluctuations. Fluctuations in our operating results may negatively impact our stock price. Our quarterly operating results may fluctuate significantly in the future due to a variety of factors that could affect our revenues or our expenses in any particular quarter. You should not rely on quarter-to-quarter comparisons of our results of operations as an indication of future performance. Factors that may affect our quarterly results include: 7

o mismatches between resource allocation and customer demand due to difficulties in predicting customer demand in a new market; o the demand for and acceptance of our website, products, product enhancements and services; o changes in general economic conditions that could affect marketing efforts generally and online marketing efforts in particular; o the magnitude and timing of marketing initiatives; o the maintenance and development of our strategic relationships; o the introduction, development, timing, competitive pricing and market acceptance of our products and services and those of our competitors; o our ability to attract and retain key personnel; o our ability to manage our anticipated growth and expansion; o our ability to attract traffic to our website; o our ability to attract travel companies as customers; and o technical difficulties or system downtime affecting the Internet generally or the operation of our products and services specifically. As a result of the factors listed above and because the online advertising market is new and it is difficult to predict customer demand, it is possible that in some future periods our results of operations may be below the expectations of public market analysts and investors. This could cause our stock price to decline. In addition, we plan to significantly increase our operating expenses to expand our sales and marketing, administration, maintenance and technical support and research and development groups. If revenues fall below our expectations in any quarter and we are unable to quickly reduce our spending in response, our operating results would be lower than expected and our stock price may fall. Our business model is unproven and may not be adaptable to a changing market. Our current revenue model depends on listing fees from travel companies using our website. Our revenue model and profit potential are unproven. If current customers decide not to continue listing their special offers with us and we are unable to replace them with new customers, our business may be adversely affected. To be successful, we must provide online marketing solutions that achieve broad market acceptance by travel companies. In addition, we must attract sufficient Internet users with attractive demographic characteristics to our website. It is possible that we will be required to further adapt our business model in response to additional changes in the online advertising market or if our current business model is not successful. If we are not able to anticipate changes in the online advertising market or if our business model is not successful, our business could be materially adversely affected which could reduce the value of your shares. We may not be able to obtain sufficient funds to grow our business and any additional financing may be on terms adverse to your interests. We intend to continue to grow our business, and intend to fund our current operations and our anticipated growth from the cash flow generated from our operations and our retained earnings. However, these sources may not be sufficient to meet our needs. If we need financing from other sources, our ability to obtain such financing would be subject to a number of factors, including: o market and economic conditions; o our financial condition and operating performance; and 8

o investor sentiment. These factors may make the timing, amount, terms and conditions of additional financing unattractive for us. If additional financing is not available when required or is not available on acceptable terms, we may be unable to fund our expansion, successfully promote our brand name, develop or enhance our products and services, take advantage of business opportunities or respond to competitive pressures, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business and the value of your shares. If we choose to raise additional funds through the issuance of equity securities, you may experience significant dilution of your ownership interest, and holders of the additional equity securities may have rights senior to those of the holders of our common stock. If we obtain additional financing by issuing debt securities, the terms of these securities could restrict or prevent us from paying dividends and could limit our flexibility in making business decisions. The cost of the proposed merger and the registration of our shares may be higher than we expect. We can not be sure that our estimate of the cost of the proposed merger and the registration of our shares is correct. If the cost of the proposed merger and the registration our shares is significantly higher than we expect, our capital might not be sufficient and we may be required to seek additional financing. Our business may be sensitive to recessions. The demand for online marketing solutions may be linked to the level of economic activity and employment in the U.S. and abroad. A recession could cause travel companies to reduce or postpone their marketing spending generally, and their online marketing spending in particular. If a significant economic downturn or recession occurs in the U.S. or abroad, our business and the value of your shares could be materially adversely affected. There has been no active market for our shares. Since our shares have not been registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or listed on any stock exchange, there has been no active market for our shares. We cannot assure you that an active market for the shares of Travelzoo Delaware will develop following completion of the merger. We are controlled by a principal stockholder. Ralph Bartel, who founded Travelzoo and who is our Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, President and Secretary, is our largest stockholder, holding approximately 52% of our outstanding shares prior to the merger. Mr. Bartel will hold approximately 72% of our outstanding shares upon consummation of the merger with options to increase his percentage ownership to 75% on a fully-diluted basis, assuming all outstanding shares of Travelzoo Bahamas are exchanged for shares of Travelzoo Delaware. Through his share ownership, he will be in a position to control Travelzoo and to elect our entire board of directors. Risks Related to Our Markets and Strategy The Internet is not a proven marketing medium. The future of our business is dependent on the ongoing acceptance by travel companies of the Internet as an effective marketing tool, and on the ongoing acceptance by consumers of the Internet as a source for valuable information on offers from travel companies. The online advertising market is new and rapidly evolving, and we do not yet know how effective online advertising is compared to traditional advertising methods. The adoption of online marketing by travel companies, particularly among those that have historically relied upon traditional advertising methods, requires the acceptance of a new way of conducting business, marketing and advertising. Many of our potential customers have little or no experience using the Internet as a marketing tool, and not all Internet users have experience using the Internet to look for travel offers. As a result, we cannot be sure that we will be able to effectively compete with 9

traditional advertising methods. If we are unable to compete with traditional advertising methods, our business and results of operations and the value of your shares could be materially adversely affected. We will only be able to execute our business model if use of the Internet grows. If Internet usage does not continue to grow, our business could be adversely affected. Internet usage may be inhibited by any of the following factors: o the Internet infrastructure may not be able to support the demands placed on it, or its performance and reliability may decline as usage grows; o websites may not be able to provide adequate security and authentication of confidential information contained in transmissions over the Internet; and o the Internet industry may not be able to adequately respond to privacy concerns of potential users. If Internet usage does not continue to grow, we may not be able to meet our business objectives, which could decrease the value of your shares. We may not be able to develop awareness of our brand name. We believe that continuing to build awareness of the Travelzoo brand name is critical to achieving widespread acceptance of our business. Brand recognition is a key differentiating factor among providers of online marketing solutions, and we believe it could become more important as competition in the online advertising industry increases. In order to maintain and build brand awareness, we must succeed in our marketing efforts, provide high quality services and increase the number of Internet users with favorable demographics using Travelzoo. If we fail to successfully promote and maintain our brand, incur significant expenses in promoting our brand and fail to generate a corresponding increase in revenue as a result of our branding efforts, or encounter legal obstacles which prevent our continued use of our brand name, our business and the value of your shares could be materially adversely affected. We may not be able to successfully introduce new products and services. We expect to introduce new and enhanced products and services in order to generate additional revenues, attract and retain more travel companies as customers, attract more Internet users to our website and respond to competition. Any new product or service we introduce that is not favorably received could damage our reputation and the perception of our brand name. The failure of our new products and services to achieve market acceptance and generate revenue could result in a material adverse effect on our business and the value of your shares. We will not be able to attract travel companies or Internet users if we do not continually enhance and develop the content and features of our products and services. To remain competitive, we must continually improve the responsiveness, functionality and features of our products and services. We may not succeed in developing features, functions, products or services that travel companies and Internet users find attractive. This could reduce the number of travel companies and Internet users using www.Travelzoo.com and materially adversely affect our business and the value of your shares. We may lose business if we fail to keep pace with rapidly changing technologies and customer needs. Our success is dependent on our ability to develop new and enhanced software, services and related products to meet rapidly evolving technological requirements for online marketing solutions. Our current technology may not meet 10

the future technical requirements of travel companies. Trends that could have a critical impact on our success include: o rapidly changing technology in online marketing; o evolving industry standards, including both formal and de facto standards relating to online marketing; o developments and changes relating to the Internet; o competing products and services that offer increased functionality; and o changes in travel company and Internet user requirements. If we are unable to timely and successfully develop and introduce new products and enhancements to existing products in response to our industry's changing technological requirements, our business and the value of your shares could be materially adversely affected. Our business and growth will suffer if we are unable to hire and retain highly skilled personnel. Our future success depends on our ability to attract, train, motivate and retain highly skilled employees. Competition for highly skilled employees is intense, particularly in the Internet industry. We may be unable to retain our skilled employees or attract, assimilate and retain other highly skilled employees in the future. We have from time to time in the past experienced, and we expect to continue to experience in the future, difficulty in hiring and retaining highly skilled employees with appropriate qualifications. If we are unable to hire and retain skilled personnel, our growth may be restricted, the quality of our products and services reduced and the value of your shares reduced. We may not be able to effectively manage our expanding operations. We have recently experienced a period of rapid growth. In order to execute our business plan, we must continue to grow significantly. As of December 31, 2000, we had 11 employees. We expect that the number of our employees will continue to increase for the foreseeable future. This growth has placed, and our anticipated future growth combined with the requirements we face as a public company will continue to place, a significant strain on our management, systems and resources. We expect that we will need to continue to improve our financial and managerial controls and reporting systems and procedures. We will also need to continue to expand and maintain close coordination among our technical, accounting, finance and sales and marketing organizations. We may not succeed in these efforts. Our inability to expand our operations in an efficient manner could cause our expenses to grow disproportionately to revenues, our revenues to decline or grow more slowly than expected and otherwise have a material adverse effect on our business and the value of your shares. Intense competition may render our services and products uncompetitive or obsolete. We compete with large Internet portal sites, such as About.com, America Online, Excite, Lycos, MSN and Yahoo!, that offer listings or other advertising opportunities for travel companies. We also compete with smaller sites that specialize in listing last-minute offers or list deals for free, such as Lastminutetravel.com and Smarterliving.com. In addition, we compete with newspapers, magazines and other traditional media companies that provide online advertising. We expect to face additional competition as other established and emerging companies, including print media companies, enter the online advertising market. Many of our current and potential competitors have longer operating histories, significantly greater financial, technical, marketing and other resources and larger client bases than we do. In addition, current and potential competitors may make strategic acquisitions or establish cooperative relationships to expand their businesses or to offer more comprehensive solutions. 11

We believe that there will be rapid business consolidation in the online advertising industry. Accordingly, new competitors may emerge and rapidly acquire significant market share. In addition, new technologies will likely increase the competitive pressures that we face. The development of competing technologies by market participants or the emergence of new industry standards may adversely affect our competitive position. Competition could result in reduced margins on our services, loss of market share or less use of Travelzoo by travel companies and consumers. If we are not able to compete effectively with current or future competitors as a result of these and other factors, our business could be materially adversely affected. Loss of any of our key management personnel could negatively impact our business. Our future success depends to a significant extent on the continued service and coordination of our management team, particularly Ralph Bartel, our Chairman, President, Chief Executive Officer and Secretary. The loss or departure of any of our officers or key employees could materially adversely affect our ability to implement our business plan. We do not maintain key person life insurance for any member of our management team. In addition, we expect new members to join our management team in the future. These individuals will not previously have worked together and will be required to become integrated into our management team. If our key management personnel are not able to work together effectively or successfully, our business could be materially adversely affected. We may not be able to successfully make acquisitions of or investments in other companies. Our business strategy includes the pursuit of acquisitions. In attempting to execute this strategy, we may be unable to identify suitable acquisition candidates. If we acquire a company, we could have difficulty assimilating the acquired company's operations and personnel. If we make other types of acquisitions, we could have difficulty in assimilating any acquired products, services, personnel and technologies into our operations. These difficulties could disrupt our ongoing business, distract our management and employees, increase our expenses and charges and materially adversely affect our business. Risks Related to the Internet and Our Technology Infrastructure We may experience reduced visitor traffic, reduced revenue and harm to our reputation in the event of unexpected network interruptions caused by system failures. Our servers and software must be able to accommodate a high volume of traffic. Any substantial increase in demands on our servers will require us to expand and adapt our network infrastructure. If we are unable to add additional software and hardware to accommodate increased demand, we could experience unanticipated system disruptions and slower response times. Any catastrophic failure at our co-location facility could prevent us from serving our web traffic for up to several days, and any failure of our Internet service provider may adversely affect our network's performance. Our clients may become dissatisfied by any system failure that interrupts our ability to provide our products and services to them or results in slower response times. We do not maintain business interruption insurance. Any system failure, including network, software or hardware failure, that causes an interruption in the delivery of our products and services or a decrease in responsiveness of our services could result in reduced revenue and could materially adversely affect our reputation and brand. Breaches of our network security could be costly. A significant barrier to confidential communications over the Internet has been the need for security. We may incur significant costs to protect against the threat of security breaches or to alleviate problems caused by these breaches. If unauthorized persons penetrate our network security, they could misappropriate proprietary information or cause interruptions in our services. As a result, we may be required to expend capital and resources to protect against or to alleviate these problems. In addition, we may be liable to 12

customers or Internet users who experience losses or damages due to our security failures. As a result, security breaches could have a material adverse effect on our business and the value of your shares. Computer viruses may cause our systems to incur delays or interruptions and may adversely affect our business. Computer viruses may cause our systems to incur delays or other service interruptions. In addition, the inadvertent transmission of computer viruses could expose us to a material risk of loss or litigation and possible liability. Moreover, if a computer virus affecting our system is highly publicized, our reputation could be materially damaged and our visitor traffic may decrease. Any of these events could materially adversely affect our business and the value of your shares. We may not be able to access third party technology upon which we depend. We use technology and software products from third parties including Microsoft. In light of the rapidly evolving nature of Internet technology, we may increasingly need to rely on technology from other vendors. Technology from our current or other vendors may not continue to be available to us on commercially reasonable terms, or at all. If we lose the ability to access this technology, are unable to gain access to additional products or are unable to integrate new technology with our existing systems, we could experience delays in our development and introduction of new services and related products or enhancements until equivalent or replacement technology can be accessed, if available, or developed internally, if feasible. If we experience these delays, our business and the value of your shares could be materially adversely affected. Risks Related to Legal Uncertainty We may become subject to burdensome government regulations and legal uncertainties affecting the Internet which could adversely affect our business. To date, governmental regulations have not materially restricted use of the Internet in our markets. However, the legal and regulatory environment that pertains to the Internet is uncertain and may change. Uncertainty and new regulations could increase our costs of doing business, prevent us from delivering our products and services over the Internet or slow the growth of the Internet. In addition to new laws and regulations being adopted, existing laws may be applied to the Internet. New and existing laws may cover issues which include: o user privacy; o consumer protection; o copyright, trademark and patent infringement; o pricing controls; o characteristics and quality of products and services; o sales and other taxes; and o other claims based on the nature and content of Internet materials. We may be unable to protect our registered trademark or other proprietary intellectual property rights. Our success depends to a significant degree upon the protection of the Travelzoo brand name. We rely upon a combination of copyright, trade secret and trademark laws and non-disclosure and other contractual arrangements to protect our intellectual property rights. The steps we have taken to protect our proprietary rights, however, may not be adequate to deter misappropriation of proprietary information. 13

On June 21, 1999, Mr. Bartel, our founder, filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to register the trademark "Travelzoo" for "providing information and news in the field of travel via an on-line global communications network and travel agency services, namely making reservations and booking for transportation," "providing information and news in the field of travel via an on-line global communications network and travel agency services, namely making reservations and booking for temporary lodging," and "promoting the goods and services of others through the offer of travel goods and services and shopping club services, namely providing information on travel goods and services to members." The PTO published that mark for opposition on October 31, 2000. On January 22, 2001, Mr. Bartel, who filed the trademark application as an individual, transferred the ownership of the pending trademark "Travelzoo" to Travelzoo Delaware. The PTO registered the trademark on January 23, 2001. If we are unable to protect our rights in the mark, a key element of our strategy of promoting Travelzoo as a brand could be disrupted and our business could be adversely affected. See "Business--Intellectual Property." We may not be able to detect unauthorized use of our proprietary information or take appropriate steps to enforce our intellectual property rights. In addition, the validity, enforceability and scope of protection of intellectual property in Internet-related industries is uncertain and still evolving. The laws of other countries in which we may market our services in the future are uncertain and may afford little or no effective protection of our intellectual property. The unauthorized reproduction or other misappropriation of our proprietary technology could enable third parties to benefit from our technology and brand name without paying us for them. If this were to occur, our business could be materially adversely affected. Defending against intellectual property infringement claims could be time consuming and expensive, and we may be liable for infringing on the intellectual property rights of others. If we are not successful in defending against these claims, we could be subject to significant damages and the disruption of our business. We cannot be certain that our products, content and brand names do not or will not infringe valid patents, copyrights or other intellectual property rights held by third parties. We expect that infringement claims in our markets will increase in number as more participants enter the markets. We may be subject to legal proceedings and claims from time to time relating to the intellectual property of others in the ordinary course of our business. We may incur substantial expenses in defending against these third party infringement claims, regardless of their merit. Successful infringement claims against us may result in monetary liability or a material disruption in the conduct of our business. We may be liable as a result of information retrieved from or transmitted over the Internet. We may be sued for defamation, negligence, copyright or trademark infringement or other legal claims relating to information that is published or made available on www.Travelzoo.com, the Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter and the other sites linked to our website. These types of claims have been brought, sometimes successfully, against online services in the past. The fact that we distribute our Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter and other information via email may subject us to potential risks, such as liabilities or claims resulting from unsolicited email or spamming, lost or misdirected messages, security breaches, illegal or fraudulent use of email or interruptions or delays in email service. In addition, we could incur significant costs in investigating and defending such claims, even if we ultimately are not liable. If any of these events occur, our business and the value of your shares could be materially adversely affected. 14

THE MERGER Background Travelzoo.com Corporation was incorporated on May 21, 1998 in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas under The International Business Companies Act of 1989. Ralph Bartel, our Chairman of the Board and President, was initially our sole stockholder. As described under "Information about Travelzoo," in 1998 we offered shares in Travelzoo to visitors who registered on our website, resulting in approximately 700,000 "Netsurfer Stockholders," each of whom received three shares plus up to an additional seven shares for referrals. The number of shares held by each Netsurfer Stockholder has been doubled as a result of a two-for-one stock split which we effected in December 2000. Ralph Bartel, who was a resident of Germany at the time, believed that the grant of the shares to the Netsurfer Stockholders could be made without any registration or qualification with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or other regulatory body, since no payment was received for the shares. Although Mr. Bartel received an inquiry from the SEC about the issuance of shares to the Netsurfer Stockholders, the SEC has not asserted any violation of law by Travelzoo. However, we understand that the SEC takes the position that programs for issuing shares such as our Netsurfer Stockholder program should be registered with the SEC. We are registering the shares to be offered in the merger under the U.S. Securities Act. This proxy statement and prospectus is a part of that registration statement. Silicon Channels Corporation, formerly an affiliate of Travelzoo Bahamas, was incorporated in California on September 28, 1998 with Ralph Bartel as the sole stockholder. Silicon Channels did business under the name "Travelzoo.com Sales, Inc." On October 10, 1998, Travelzoo.com Corporation and Silicon Channels Corporation entered into a letter agreement whereby Silicon Channels agreed to manage the technical platform, marketing, customer support and billing for the classified publishing business of the Travelzoo.com website in return for a 5% commission on the quarterly net income from such business. The October 10, 1998 agreement was subsequently replaced by a Service Agreement dated January 2, 1999. In the January 2, 1999 Agreement, Silicon Channels agreed to perform all operation services with respect to the Travelzoo.com website in return for 50% of the income before taxes generated from the operation of the Travelzoo.com website. All assets, other than the domain name Travelzoo.com, used in the operation of the Travelzoo.com website were owned by Silicon Channels. As the business of Travelzoo became established, and following election of a Board of Directors consisting primarily of independent directors, the Board of Directors discussed the advisability of reorganizing the business so that all of the operations previously conducted through Travelzoo Bahamas and Silicon Channels would be conducted through a single company, which would be organized as a corporation in the United States. The board also considered the advisability of effecting a registration with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission of its outstanding shares, including the shares which had been issued to the Netsurfer Stockholders. Following such discussions, and after considering the opinion provided by The Mentor Group as discussed under "Exchange of Shares of Silicon Channels" on page 43, the board approved the acquisition of Silicon Channels by Travelzoo Delaware, a newly formed Delaware subsidiary of Travelzoo Bahamas, in exchange for shares of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware and options to purchase shares of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware, as described under "Certain Transactions between Travelzoo and its Affiliates" on page 43. This transaction occurred on January 22, 2001. The board also approved the transactions described in this proxy statement and prospectus, including the merger of Travelzoo Bahamas into Travelzoo Delaware. Merger with Travelzoo Delaware We are now proposing that Travelzoo Bahamas be merged into Travelzoo Delaware. We believe that it is in the best interests of our company and our stockholders that Travelzoo be incorporated in the United States, and have 16

decided that Delaware is the most suitable state for incorporation. Delaware is the most common state of incorporation for public companies in the United States. In connection with the merger, we are filing a registration statement with the SEC relating to the shares of Travelzoo Delaware which will be issued in the merger. This is intended to resolve the prior questions relating to the manner in which shares of Travelzoo Bahamas were distributed as referred to above, and to allow our stockholders to have freely tradable and properly registered shares. Travelzoo Bahamas and Travelzoo Delaware have entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated January 19, 2001, a copy of which appears as Annex A to this proxy statement and prospectus. Information concerning the merger agreement is set forth under "The Merger Agreement" on page 19. Effects of the Merger On completion of the merger, Travelzoo Bahamas will be merged into Travelzoo Delaware, Travelzoo Bahamas will cease to exist as a separate company, and all the stockholders of Travelzoo Bahamas who comply with the applicable provisions of the merger agreement will receive one share of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware in exchange for each share of common stock of Travelzoo Bahamas they now hold. The business which has been conducted by Travelzoo Bahamas and its affiliate, Silicon Channels, will be continued by Travelzoo Delaware and its subsidiary, Silicon Channels, and all of the shares held by Travelzoo Delaware stockholders will be registered and freely tradable. Certain United States Federal Income Tax Consequences General. The following discussion summarizes the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the merger to certain holders of Travelzoo Bahamas securities, including the receipt of securities of Travelzoo Delaware in exchange for their Travelzoo Bahamas securities. The following summary also sets forth the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the merger at the corporate level to Travelzoo. The discussion is based upon current law and is subject to the qualifications contained therein. The discussion assumes that the holders hold their Travelzoo Bahamas securities as capital assets within the meaning of Section 1221 the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. This summary does not purport to discuss all aspects of U.S. federal income taxation that may be relevant to a particular holder of Travelzoo Bahamas stock. In particular, it does not apply to holders entitled to special treatment under U.S. federal income tax law (including, without limitation, dealers in securities, tax-exempt organizations, banks or other financial institutions, trusts, insurance companies, persons that hold Travelzoo Bahamas stock as part of a straddle, a hedge against currency risk or as a constructive sale or conversion transaction, persons that have a functional currency other than the United States dollar, investors in pass-through entities and foreign persons, including foreign individuals, partnerships and corporations). This discussion also does not describe tax consequences arising out of the tax laws of any state, local or foreign jurisdiction. Further, this summary does not purport to discuss the U.S. federal income taxation of holders of Travelzoo Bahamas stock who acquired such securities or stock pursuant to the exercise or cancellation of employee stock options or otherwise as compensation. You are urged to consult your tax advisor as to specific tax considerations of the merger, including your receipt of stock of Travelzoo Delaware and the application and effect of federal, state, local and foreign tax laws in your particular circumstances. 17

Consequences of the Initial Receipt of the Travelzoo Bahamas Stock. In the opinion of Bryan Cave LLP, our counsel, under current law, the initial receipt of common stock by our Netsurfer Stockholders was taxable to them upon receipt in an amount equal to the fair market value of the stock at the time of receipt. Each holder's aggregate tax basis in the common stock received will equal the fair market value of the stock at the time of receipt. The holding period of the common stock received began on the day after receipt. Consequences of the Merger. In the opinion of Bryan Cave LLP, our counsel, under current law: o the merger will qualify as a "reorganization" within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code, o Travelzoo Bahamas and Travelzoo Delaware will each be a "party to a reorganization" within the meaning of Section 368(b) of the Code, and o except as more fully described below, no income, gain or loss will be recognized by Travelzoo Bahamas or Travelzoo Delaware as a result of the merger. This opinion is subject to qualifications set forth herein and assumes that the merger is consummated in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement and as described in this proxy statement and prospectus. It also assumes the accuracy of the representations and assumptions set forth in certificates delivered to our counsel. The opinion is based on the Code, Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder and in effect as of the date hereof, current administrative rulings and practice, and judicial precedent, all of which are subject to change, possibly with retroactive effect. Any change in law or failure of the factual representations and assumptions to be true could alter the tax consequences discussed herein. The merger is not conditioned upon a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service as to any of the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the merger or the distribution of the stock of Travelzoo Delaware. As a result, there can be no assurance that the Internal Revenue Service will not disagree with or challenge any of the conclusions set forth in this discussion. Consequences to Holders of Travelzoo Stock. This section sets forth the opinion of Bryan Cave LLP, our counsel, as to the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the merger to holders of Travelzoo Bahamas stock. Exchange of Travelzoo Bahamas Common Stock. Holders of Travelzoo Bahamas common stock, who do not own 10 percent or more of the total combined voting power of our common stock, who exchange their common stock for Travelzoo Delaware common stock in the merger will not recognize gain or loss, assuming the individual holders' Travelzoo Bahamas common stock has a fair market value of less than $50,000 on the date of the exchange. Each holder's aggregate tax basis in the Travelzoo Delaware common stock received in the merger will be the same as his or her aggregate tax basis in the Travelzoo Bahamas common stock surrendered in the merger. The holding period of the Travelzoo Delaware common stock received in the merger will include the holding period of the Travelzoo Bahamas common stock surrendered in the merger. Additional Consequences to Holders of Travelzoo Bahamas Securities. This section sets forth additional U.S. federal income tax consequences of the merger to holders of Travelzoo Bahamas Securities. Dissenter's Rights. Holders of Travelzoo Bahamas common stock who receive cash as a result of the exercise of the right to dissent from the merger (assuming thereafter that, directly or indirectly, such holder owns no Travelzoo Delaware capital stock), will recognize gain or loss equal to the difference 18

between the amount of cash received and the holder's allocable tax basis in stock exchanged therefor. That gain or loss generally will constitute capital gain or loss. It will constitute long-term gain or loss if the holder has held the Travelzoo Bahamas common stock for more than 12 months. Backup withholding. Certain noncorporate holders of Travelzoo Bahamas common stock may be subject to backup withholding at a rate of 31% on cash payments received upon exercise of dissenter's rights of Travelzoo Bahamas common stock unless such holder: o furnishes a correct taxpayer identification number and certifies under penalty of perjury that he or she is not subject to backup withholding on the substitute Form W-9 (or successor form) which will be provided to holders of Travelzoo Delaware common stock following consummation of the merger, o provides a certification of foreign status on Form W-8 (or successor form), or o is otherwise exempt from backup withholding. Any amount withheld under these rules will be credited against the holder's U.S. federal income tax liability. Because of the complexity of the tax laws, and because the tax consequences to any particular holder of Travelzoo Bahamas common stock may be affected by matters not discussed herein, each holder of Travelzoo Bahamas common stock is urged to consult his or her personal tax advisor concerning the applicability to him or her of the foregoing discussion, as well as of any other tax consequences of the merger. The MERGER AGREEMENT The following is a summary of the merger agreement, and is qualified by reference to the complete text of the merger agreement, which is attached as Annex A to this proxy statement and prospectus. We urge you to read the full text of the merger agreement. Structure of the Merger On the effectiveness of the merger, Travelzoo Bahamas will merge into Travelzoo Delaware, and Travelzoo Delaware will be the surviving corporation. Travelzoo Bahamas will cease to exist, and Travelzoo Delaware will succeed to all of the rights, powers, properties and assets of Travelzoo Bahamas, and will continue to operate the business which has been conducted by Travelzoo Bahamas and will continue to own all outstanding shares of Silicon Channels. Exchange of Shares The merger agreement provides that, on the effectiveness of the merger, each outstanding share of common stock of Travelzoo Bahamas will be converted into the right to receive one share of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware. The shares of Travelzoo Delaware which are now held by Travelzoo Bahamas will be cancelled. The shares of Travelzoo Delaware which are now held by Ralph Bartel will remain outstanding, and his shares of Travelzoo Bahamas will also be exchanged for additional shares of Travelzoo Delaware, and he will hold approximately 72% of the outstanding shares. In order to receive shares of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware, you will be required to: o Identify yourself as a stockholder of Travelzoo Bahamas by providing us with your name, the email address you have registered with us, and a new password which we will send to your registered email address. If you do not have access to your registered email address, and are unable to receive your new password, you will be required to update you registered email address by giving us a written request which includes your name, a copy of your passport or other photo id, as well 19

as either your current registered email address or the serial numbers of your Travalzoo shares, which were assigned to you at the time you received your shares. o Provide us with a mailing address. o Advise us whether you consent to receiving by electronic transmission any notices to be given by Travelzoo Delaware to its stockholders, in accordance with Section 323 of the Delaware General Corporation Law. o Advise us whether you consent to receiving by electronic transmission our proxy statements, annual reports and other information to be provided to you in accordance with the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Although we have not previously required our Netsurfer Stockholders to provide us with a mailing address, we will require a mailing address for all stockholders of Travelzoo Delaware. Even though we intend to use electronic delivery of stockholder communications whenever possible, the Delaware General Corporation Law and the rules and regulations of the SEC require us, under certain circumstances, to provide notices to our stockholders by mail. We strongly encourage all our shareholders to consent to receive electronic communications. You may provide us with the information described above over the Internet at http://www.travelzoo.com/delaware, and we encourage you to use this method of communication.

If you attend the meeting in person you may also deliver the form to us at the meeting. Book-Entry The share register of Travelzoo Bahamas has been maintained electronically, and share certificates have not been issued. Ownership of the shares of Travelzoo Delaware will also be on a book-entry basis initially, and we will encourage our shareholders to continue holding their shares in book entry form. See "Book-Entry Share Ownership" on page 47. Conditions to the Merger The obligations of Travelzoo Bahamas and Travelzoo Delaware to complete the merger are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of specified conditions, including the following: o the approval of the merger agreement by the affirmative vote of: - the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Travelzoo Bahamas common stock; and - the holder of the outstanding shares of Travelzoo Delaware common stock (which has already taken place); o the absence of any law, order or injunction prohibiting the consummation of the merger; o the receipt of all approvals and the completion of filings, or notices necessary for completion of the merger; o the declaration of effectiveness of the registration statement on form S-4, of which this proxy statement and prospectus forms a part, by the SEC, and the absence of any stop order or threatened or pending proceedings seeking a stop order. Termination The merger agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the completion of the merger, whether before or after the stockholder approvals have been obtained: 20

o by mutual consent of Travelzoo Bahamas and Travelzoo Delaware; o by either Travelzoo Bahamas or Travelzoo Delaware if any decree, permanent injunction, judgment, order or other action by any court of competent jurisdiction, any arbitrator or any governmental authority preventing or prohibiting consummation of the merger shall have become final and non-appealable; o by either Travelzoo Bahamas or Travelzoo Delaware if the merger shall not have been consummated before May 1, 2001 unless the failure of the effective time to occur by such date shall be due to the failure of the party seeking to terminate the merger agreement in performing its covenants and agreements in the merger agreement; o by either Travelzoo Bahamas or Travelzoo Delaware if the transactions contemplated by the merger agreement shall fail to receive the requisite vote for approval by the stockholders of Travelzoo Bahamas; o by Travelzoo Bahamas if its board of directors shall have withdrawn its approval or recommendation of the merger in connection with the exercise of its fiduciary duties; or o by either Travelzoo Bahamas or Travelzoo Delaware if the board of directors of either company determines that the number of shareholders requesting paper delivery (as opposed or in addition to electronic delivery) of this proxy statement and prospectus makes it inadvisable to proceed with the merger. Representations and Warranties The merger agreement contains representations and warranties of Travelzoo Bahamas and Travelzoo Delaware relating to, among other things: o corporate organization and good standing; o capitalization; and o authorization. Completion and Effectiveness of the Merger The merger will become effective when a certificate of merger is filed in the State of Delaware in accordance with Sections 252 and 103 of the Delaware General Corporation Law. We anticipate that we will file the certificate of merger promptly following the stockholder meeting to approve the merger. 21

INFORMATION ABOUT TRAVELZOO Our History Travelzoo Bahamas Travelzoo.com Corporation was incorporated on May 21, 1998 in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas under The International Business Companies Act of 1989. Ralph Bartel, our Chairman of the Board and President, was initially our sole stockholder. Our principal business office is located at 800 West El Camino Real, Suite 180, Mountain View, California 94040. Internet Stock Offering Following the organization of Travelzoo Bahamas in 1998, we offered shares in Travelzoo to visitors who registered on our website. We limited the offer to approximately 700,000 "Netsurfer Stockholders," each of whom received three shares plus up to an additional seven shares for referrals. We required each Netsurfer Stockholder to provide us with their first and last names, e-mail address, country of residence and a PIN number, and to represent that he or she was at least 18 years old and a resident of the United States or Canada. The number of shares held by each Netsurfer Stockholder has been doubled as a result of a two-for-one stock split which we effected in December 2000. We believe that our offering was the first offering of "free shares" over the Internet. Mr. Bartel, who was a resident of Germany at the time, was not advised by U.S. securities counsel, and believed that the grant of the shares could be made without any registration or qualification with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or other regulatory body since no payment was received for the shares. Although Mr. Bartel received an inquiry from the SEC about the issuance of shares to the Netsurfer Stockholders, the SEC has not asserted any violation of law by Travelzoo. However, we understand that the SEC takes the position that programs for issuing shares such as our Netsurfer Stockholder program should be registered with the SEC. We are registering the shares to be offered in the merger under the U.S. Securities Act. Silicon Channels Corporation Silicon Channels Corporation, formerly an affiliate of Travelzoo Bahamas, was incorporated in California on September 28, 1998 with Ralph Bartel as the sole stockholder. Silicon Channels did business under the name "Travelzoo.com Sales, Inc." On October 10, 1998, Travelzoo.com Corporation and Silicon Channels Corporation entered into a letter agreement whereby Silicon Channels agreed to manage the technical platform, marketing, customer support and billing for the classified publishing business of the Travelzoo.com website in return for a 5% commission on the quarterly net income from such business. The October 10, 1998 agreement was subsequently replaced by a Service Agreement dated January 2, 1999. In the January 2, 1999 Agreement, Silicon Channels agreed to perform all operation services with respect to the Travelzoo.com website in return for 50% of the net income before taxes generated from the operation of the Travelzoo.com website. All assets, other than the domain name Travelzoo.com, used in the operation of the Travelzoo.com website were owned by Silicon Channels. On January 22, 2001 Silicon Channels became a subsidiary of Travelzoo Delaware, a newly-formed subsidiary of Travelzoo Bahamas, as described under "Certain Transactions between Travelzoo and Its Affiliates" on page 43. Merger with Travelzoo Delaware Travelzoo Inc. was incorporated as a Delaware corporation on January 18, 2001. The initial stockholder of Travelzoo Delaware was Travelzoo Bahamas. Following the contribution of the shares of Silicon Channels Corporation to Travelzoo Delaware, Travelzoo Bahamas owns 58% of Travelzoo Delaware and Ralph 25

Bartel owns 42% of Travelzoo Delaware. On completion of the merger described in this proxy statement and prospectus, Travelzoo Bahamas will be merged into Travelzoo Delaware, Travelzoo Bahamas will cease to exist as a separate company, and all the stockholders of Travelzoo Bahamas who comply with the applicable provisions of the merger agreement will receive one share of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware in exchange for each share of common stock of Travelzoo Bahamas they now hold. Our Business Travelzoo provides online marketing solutions for the travel industry. Our website, www.Travelzoo.com, and our Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter enable travel companies to promote their special offers in a fast, flexible and cost-effective manner. By solving many of the problems associated with newspaper advertising, which is currently the main advertising medium for travel companies, we allow travel companies to more effectively promote their special offers. More than 150 companies use our services. Our customers include: Alamo Rent-A-Car, American Airlines Vacations, Budget Rent A Car, Hertz, Holiday Inn, Lowestfare.com, Park Place Entertainment, Starwood Hotels and United Airlines. Our advertising revenues are primarily derived from listing fees on our website, www.Travelzoo.com. Our listing management software allows travel companies to add, update, and delete special offer listings on a real-time basis. Our software also provides travel companies with real-time performance tracking, enabling them to optimize their marketing campaigns. Revenue from our listing services has grown rapidly since we began operations in 1998, primarily driven by an increasing number of travel companies listing their special offers on www.Travelzoo.com. Our revenues increased from approximately $84,000 for the period from May 21, 1998 (inception) to December 31, 1998, to approximately $954,000 for the year ended December 31, 1999. Our revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 were approximately $2.8 million. Industry Background Market for Advertising Special Offers We believe that travel companies require efficient and cost-effective advertising of special offers. Promoting special offers helps travel companies to sell excess inventory and travel services to consumers that otherwise might not travel. According to the Newspaper Association of America, travel companies spent $1.5 billion in 1999 on national advertising in local newspapers (Source: Market and Business Analysis, NAA, June 2000). Newspapers are the main advertising medium for travel companies. We believe that several factors are causing and will continue to cause an increase in spending on advertising special offers: o Online Advertising Opportunities. The Internet allows travel companies to advertise their special offers in an efficient and cost-effective manner that has not been possible before. We believe this will lead to greater expenditures by travel companies on advertising special offers. o Suppliers Selling Directly. We believe that many travel suppliers prefer to sell their travel services directly to consumers, as an alternative to more costly distribution through travel agents. Promotion of special offers allows them to sell directly to consumers. Prior to the advent of the Internet, travel companies traditionally relied on newspaper advertising for promoting their special offers. Newspaper advertising suffers from a number of limitations which do not apply to the Internet: o typically ads must be submitted 2 to 5 days prior to the publication date, which makes it difficult to advertise last-minute inventory; 26

o once an ad is published, it cannot be updated or deleted when an offer is sold out; o once an ad is published, the travel company cannot change a price; o newspaper industry is not very competitive, resulting in high rates for newspaper advertising; and o the medium offers no performance reporting. Market Opportunity We believe that the opportunities created by the Internet and the desire of many travel suppliers to sell directly to consumers will cause an increasing percentage of these expenditures to be directed to Internet advertising of special offers. We believe that the advantages offered by Internet technology have not yet been fully realized and applied to the marketing of special travel offers, and that Travelzoo has an opportunity to become a leading provider of online marketing solutions for the travel industry. The Travelzoo Solution We offer travel companies a flexible, effective, and cost-efficient solution for promoting their special offers to consumers. Our solutions include listings on our website, www.Travelzoo.com, and listing in our Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter. As travel companies increasingly utilize the Internet to promote their special offers, we believe that our solution will enable our customers to leverage the lower cost and real-time communication enabled by the Internet while retaining many of the positive attributes of traditional advertising methods. Benefits to Travel Companies We offer travel companies a flexible, effective, and cost-efficient solution for promoting their special offers to consumers. Key features of our solution for travel companies include: o Real-Time Listings of Special Offers. Our technology allows travel companies to list new special offers on a real-time basis. o Real-Time Updates. Our technology allows travel companies to update their listings on a real-time basis. o Real-Time Performance Reports. We provide travel companies with real-time tracking of the performance of their listings. Our solution enables travel companies to optimize their promotion campaigns by removing or updating unsuccessful listings and further promote successful listings. o Access to a Large Number of Travel Shoppers. Through our website, www.Travelzoo.com, we offer travel companies access to more than 600,000 unique visitors per month (Source: Media Metrix, September 2000). In addition, our Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter reaches 1.2 million subscribers, which are not measured in audience ratings. o National Reach. Through our website, www.Travelzoo.com, and our newsletter, we offer travel companies access to travel shoppers across the U.S. Benefits to Consumers Our website, www.Travelzoo.com, and our Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter provide travel shoppers information on current special offers at no cost to the travel shopper. Key features of our solution for consumers include: o Offers From More Than One Hundred Companies Aggregated. Our www.Travelzoo.com site offers consumers aggregated information on current special offers from more than one hundred travel companies. This saves time. 27

o Current Information. Compared to newspaper ads, we provide consumers more current information, since our technology enables travel companies to update their listings on a real-time basis. o Search tools. We provide consumers with the ability to search for specific special offers. Additionally, each listing includes a date stamp, giving the consumer information about the age of a particular listing. The Travelzoo Strategy Our objective is to become the leading provider of solutions for online promotion of special offers for travel companies. Key elements of our strategy include: o Build Brand Awareness. We believe that it is essential to establish a strong brand. We utilize a marketing program, including advertising on other websites. In addition, we believe that we build brand awareness by product excellence that is promoted by word-of-mouth. We intend to expand our public relations and other marketing programs. o Increase Number of Travel Companies Listing their Special Offers on www.Travelzoo.com. We intend to accelerate the growth of our customer base by expanding the size of our sales force. See "--Sales and Marketing." o Increase Number of Consumers Using the www.Travelzoo.com Website. In order to attract more users to our website, we intend to expand our advertising on other websites. We believe that we also can attract more users by product excellence that is promoted by word-of-mouth. o Continue to Enhance Our Technology. We intend to provide the best available tools to travel companies to more effectively manage their promotion campaigns. We intend to dedicate a significant amount of engineering time to continue enhancements of our technology. o Expand Our Services Into Other Areas. We intend to expand our services in other areas. We plan to accomplish this by developing new products and services within our company and by evaluating acquisition and investment opportunities. We intend to launch a service for online marketing of movies and local events in the near future. Customers As of December 31, 2000, our customer base included over 150 travel companies, including travel suppliers, consolidators, and travel agents. Some of our customers are: Air New Zealand Northwest Airlines Vacations Alamo Rent-a-Car Park Place Entertainment America West Vacations Skyauction.com American Airlines Vacations Starwood Hotels Budget Rent A Car Tollman Hundley Travel Services Cheap Tickets, Inc. International Delta Vacations Travelocity.com Hertz Travelscape.com Holiday Inn Uniglobe.com Lowestfare.com United Airlines Lufthansa Virgin Atlantic Vacations Mandalay Resort Group For the year ended December 31, 1999, Internet Travel Network, Skyauction.com, Travelocity.com, and Travelscape.com accounted for approximately 50% of our revenues. For the nine months ended September 30, 2000, Cheap 28

Tickets, Skyauction.com, and Travelscape.com accounted for 36% of our revenues. Sales and Marketing As of December 31, 2000, our direct sales force consisted of two advertising sales managers, one campaign manager, and our Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing. We obtain customers primarily through leads generated at industry conferences and inquiries received from a form on our website. We plan to add three to five advertising sales representatives to our sales force in the near future. We utilize a marketing program involving online advertising to promote www.Travelzoo.com as a leading site for special travel offers. In addition, we believe that we build brand awareness by product excellence that is promoted by word-of-mouth. We plan to continue to use key marketing events, coupled with public relations efforts, to promote awareness of the Travelzoo brand. We have entered into an outsourcing agreement for banner advertising sales and ad serving with DoubleClick, Inc., a leading advertising network. DoubleClick, Inc. sells banner advertising, serves banner on www.Travelzoo.com, provides customers with reporting, and bills the customer and remits a percentage of the sale to Travelzoo which is reported as net revenue. Our latest agreement with DoubleClick, Inc. has been in effect since June 23, 2000, and may be terminated by either party on three months' notice. Technology We have designed our technology to serve a large volume of web traffic in an efficient, scalable and fault-tolerant manner. We co-locate our production servers with Exodus Communications, Inc., a major co-location and Internet service provider. Exodus' facility includes features such as power redundancy, multiple egress and peering to other ISPs, fire suppression and access to our own separate physical space. We believe our arrangements with Exodus will allow us to grow without being limited by our own physical and technological factors, and will also provide us with sufficient bandwidth capacity for our anticipated needs. Because of the design of our website, our users are not required to download or upload large files from or to our website, which allows us to continue increasing the number of our visitors and page views without adversely affecting our performance or requiring us to make significant additional capital expenditures. Our software is written using open standards, such as Visual Basic Script, and HTML, and interfaces with products from Microsoft. We have standardized our hardware platform on Compaq servers and Cisco switches. Plans for New Products and Services We intend to launch a service for online marketing of movies and local events in the near future. In December 2000, we purchased the Internet domain name "Weekend.com." Competition We compete with large Internet portal sites, such as About.com, America Online, Excite, Lycos, MSN and Yahoo!, that offer listings or other advertising opportunities for travel companies. We also compete with smaller sites that specialize in listing last-minute offers or list deals for free, such as Lastminutetravel.com and Smarterliving.com. In addition, we compete with newspapers, magazines and other traditional media companies that provide online advertising. We expect to face additional competition as other established and emerging companies, including print media companies, enter the online advertising market. 29

Many of our current and potential competitors have longer operating histories, significantly greater financial, technical, marketing and other resources and larger client bases than we do. In addition, current and potential competitors may make strategic acquisitions or establish cooperative relationships to expand their businesses or to offer more comprehensive solutions. We believe that there will be rapid business consolidation in the online advertising industry. Accordingly, new competitors may emerge and rapidly acquire significant market share. In addition, new technologies will likely increase the competitive pressures that we face. The development of competing technologies by market participants or the emergence of new industry standards may adversely affect our competitive position. Competition could result in reduced margins on our services, loss of market share or less use of www.Travelzoo.com by travel companies and consumers. If we are not able to compete effectively with current or future competitors as a result of these and other factors, our business could be materially adversely affected. Government Regulation and Legal Uncertainties There are an increasing number of laws and regulations pertaining to the Internet, including laws or regulations relating to user privacy, liability for information retrieved from or transmitted over the Internet, online content regulation, user privacy and domain name registration. Moreover, the applicability to the Internet of existing laws governing issues such as intellectual property ownership and infringement, copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, obscenity, libel and personal privacy is uncertain and developing. Privacy Concerns. Government agencies are considering adopting regulations regarding the collection and use of personal identifying information obtained from individuals when accessing web sites. While we have implemented and intend to implement additional programs designed to enhance the protection of the privacy of our users, these programs may not conform to any regulations adopted which may be adopted by these agencies. In addition, these regulatory and enforcement efforts may adversely affect our ability to collect demographic and personal information from users, which could have an adverse effect on our ability to provide advertisers with demographic information. The European Union (the "EU") has adopted a directive that imposes restrictions on the collection and use of personal data. The directive could impose restrictions that are more stringent than current Internet privacy standards in the United States. The directive may adversely affect the activities of entities such as Travelzoo to the extent that we may seek to collect data from users in EU member countries. Domain Names. Domain names are the user's Internet "addresses." The current system for registering, allocating and managing domain names has been the subject of litigation and of proposed regulatory reform. Although we own the Travelzoo.com domain name, and have registered "Travelzoo" as a trademark, third parties may bring claims for infringement against us for the use of our domain name and trademark. In the event such claims are successful, we could lose the ability to use the Travelzoo.com domain name. There can be no assurance that our domain name will not lose its value, or that we will not have to obtain entirely new domain names in addition to or in lieu of our current domain name if changes in overall Internet domain name rules result in a restructuring in the current system of using domain names which include ".com," ".net," ".gov," ".edu" and other extensions. Jurisdictions. Due to the global nature of the Internet, it is possible that, although our transmissions over the Internet originate primarily in California, the governments of other states and foreign countries might attempt to regulate our business activities. In addition, because our service is available over the Internet in multiple states and foreign countries, these jurisdictions may require us to qualify to do business as a foreign corporation in each of these states or foreign countries, which could subject us to taxes and other regulations. 30

Intellectual Property Our success depends to a significant degree upon the protection of the Travelzoo brand name. If we were unable to protect the Travelzoo brand name, our business could be materially adversely affected. We rely upon a combination of copyright, trade secret and trademark laws to protect our intellectual property rights. The steps we have taken to protect our proprietary rights, however, may not be adequate to deter misappropriation of proprietary information. We may not be able to detect unauthorized use of our proprietary information or take appropriate steps to enforce our intellectual property rights. In addition, the validity, enforceability and scope of protection of intellectual property in Internet-related industries is uncertain and still evolving. The laws of other countries in which we may market our services in the future are uncertain and may afford little or no effective protection of our intellectual property. We filed with the United States Patent and Trademark office to register the trademark "Travelzoo" for "providing information and news in the field of travel via an on-line global communications network and travel agency services, namely making reservations and booking for transportation," "providing information and news in the field of travel via an on-line global communications network and travel agency services, namely making reservations and booking for temporary lodging," and "promoting the goods and services of others through the offer of travel goods and services and shopping club services, namely providing information on travel goods and services to members." The PTO published that mark for opposition on October 31, 2000. The mark was registered by the PTO on January 23, 2001. Employees As of December 31, 2000, we had 11 employees, of whom 5 worked in sales, marketing, client services, and business development, 1 in network operations and 5 were involved in finance, administration, and corporate operations. None of our employees is represented under collective bargaining agreements. We consider our relations with our employees to be good. Because of our anticipated further growth combined with the requirements we face as a public company, we expect that the number of our employees will continue to increase for the foreseeable future. Reports to Security Holders We have not in the past filed reports with the SEC, although we have made certain financial information available to our stockholders through our website. Following completion of the merger, we will be required to file annual, quarterly and other financial reports with the SEC in accordance with the requirements of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and we will be required to provide an annual report and proxy statement to our stockholders. We expect to provide such reports to our stockholders, and to otherwise communicate with our stockholders, using e-mail or other electronic communications to the extent permitted by the rules and regulations of the SEC and by the Delaware General Corporation Law. A stockholder may receive a paper copy of any stockholder communication by submitting a written request to the Secretary of Travelzoo at the address set forth in this proxy statement and prospectus. However, as described under "Description of Capital Stock -- Common Stock" on page 45, we will have the right to redeem shares of common stock held by a stockholder who revokes such stockholder's consent to receive communications and notices from us in electronic form. You may read and copy any materials we file with the SEC at the SEC's Public Reference Room at 450 Fifth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20549. You may obtain information on the operation of the Public Reference Room by calling the Securities and Exchange Commission at 1-800-SEC-0330. The Securities and Exchange Commission also maintains an Internet site that contains reports, proxy and information statements, and other information regarding issuers that file electronically with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The address of that site is http://www.sec.gov. 31

Facilities Our offices are currently located in approximately 3,000 square feet of office space in Mountain View, California under an operating lease with HQ Global Workplaces, Inc. that expires on December 31, 2001. We believe that our leased facilities are adequate to meet our current needs; however, we intend to expand our sales operations and therefore may require additional facilities in the future. We believe that such additional facilities are available. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS There are no material legal proceedings pending or, to our knowledge, threatened against us. MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK Our shares have not previously been registered, and our shares are not listed on any stock exchange or included in any over-the-counter market. As described above under "Information About Travelzoo -- Our History" on page 25, we have approximately 700,000 Netsurfer Stockholders who hold an aggregate of 5,155,874 shares of our common stock, or an average of approximately 7.4 shares per Netsurfer Stockholder. Our stockholder register has been kept electronically, and no share certificates have been issued. We cannot estimate what the trading price of our common stock might have been if there had been a market for the shares. Following completion of the merger, and the registration with the SEC of the shares of Travelzoo Delaware, our stockholders will be permitted to sell their shares and a market in our shares may develop. However, we cannot assure you that a significant market for the shares will develop or be maintained. We have no immediate plans to apply for a listing of our common stock on any stock exchange. We hope to apply for a listing on our common stock on the Nasdaq stock exchange at such time as we determine that we are in a position to meet the listing qualifications. Following completion of the merger, and prior to any Nasdaq listing, we expect that the shares of Travelzoo Delaware will trade on the over-the-counter market in the United States. At the date of this proxy statement and prospectus, there are 11,295,874 shares of our common stock outstanding. We have not paid any dividends on our common stock in the past and do not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future. 32

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, the combined financial statements of Travelzoo.com Corporation and affiliate and the notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this proxy statement and prospectus. This discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements as a result of factors including, but not limited to, those discussed in "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in this proxy statement and prospectus. Overview We are a provider of online marketing solutions for the travel industry. Our website, www.Travelzoo.com, and our Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter enable travel companies to promote their special offers in a fast, flexible and cost-effective manner. Our revenues are primarily derived from advertising placed on our website, www.Travelzoo.com. Travelzoo.com Corporation was incorporated in May 1998. Until September 1998, Ralph Bartel, our founder, operated the website as an individual. In September 1998, Ralph Bartel incorporated Silicon Channels Corporation d.b.a. Travelzoo.com Sales, Inc. At that time Travelzoo.com Corporation entered an outsourcing agreement with Silicon Channels. In January 1999, Silicon Channels hired its first two employees. Ralph Bartel was the first employee. As of December 31, 2000, Silicon Channels operated with 11 employees. Our early operating activities related primarily to the development of the necessary technological infrastructure for the operation of Travelzoo. In November 1999, we launched our Travelzoo Top 20 newsletter. The following discussion is based on the combined financial statements of Travelzoo.com Corporation and affiliate (Silicon Channels), which represents the historical financial statements of the Travelzoo business founded by our principal stockholder. We classify our revenues as follows: o Advertising revenues, consisting of listing fees paid by travel companies to list their special offers on www.Travelzoo.com and banner advertising sales through DoubleClick, Inc. Listing fees are based on placement, number of listings, number of impressions, or number of click-throughs. Banner advertising rates are based on CPM rates (cost per thousand impressions). Smaller advertising agreements-typically $2,000 or less per month-typically renew automatically each month if they are not terminated by the client. Larger agreements are typically related to advertising campaigns and are not automatically renewed. o Commissions revenue, consisting of commissions paid by e-commerce companies for generating sales through www.Travelzoo.com. We recognize revenue as follows: o Advertising Revenues. We recognize advertising revenues in the period in which the advertisement is displayed, provided that evidence of an arrangement exists, the fees are fixed and determinable, no significant obligations remain at the end of the period, and collection of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured. If advertising is displayed within one month, revenues are recognized at the end of the display period. If advertising is displayed over two or more months, revenues are recognized ratably over the period. To the extent that the minimum guaranteed impressions are not met during the contract period, we defer recognition of the corresponding revenues until the guaranteed impressions are achieved. Fees for banner 33

advertising are recognized based on the number of impressions displayed or clickthroughs delivered during the period. We recognize revenues from barter transactions in the period during which the advertisements are displayed on www.Travelzoo.com. Expenses from barter transactions are recognized in the period during which the advertisements are displayed on the barter partner's website. Barter transactions are recorded at the fair value of the advertising provided based on cash received by Travelzoo for similar types of advertising within six months. o Commissions. We record commissions as the net amount received. We recognize the revenue in the period that the commissions earned are reported to Travelzoo by the e-commerce partner. Typically, it takes e-commerce partners between two weeks and three months to report commissions to us. We classify our cost of revenue and operating expenses as follows: o Cost of Revenues. Cost of revenues consists of network expenses, including fees we pay for co-location services, depreciation of network equipment and salary expenses associated with network operations staff. o Sales and Marketing. Sales and marketing expenses consist primarily of advertising and promotional expenses, public relations expenses, conference expenses, printing fees, sales and marketing compensation, including base salary and sales commissions, and telemarketing communications expenses. Sales commissions have remained relatively constant as a percentage of revenues, and we expect this to continue. o General and Administrative. General and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation for administrative and executive staff, fees for professional services, rent, bad debt expense and general office expense. For the year ended December 31, 1999, we reported pre-tax income of approximately $144,000. For the nine months ended September 30, 2000, we reported pre-tax income of approximately $744,000. As of December 31, 1999, and September 30, 2000, we had retained earnings of approximately $134,000 and $571,000, respectively. We intend to devote significant resources to advertising and brand marketing programs designed to attract more site traffic and more travel companies listing their special offers on www.Travelzoo.com. We expect growth in the number of travel companies listing their special offers on www.Travelzoo.com to result in substantial growth in advertising revenues, both in terms of dollar amounts and as a percentage of total revenue. Our strategy anticipates that revenue from advertising will likely be the single largest source of revenue for us in the immediate future. As a result of our expansion plans and our expectation that operating expenses will increase significantly in the next several years, especially in the areas of sales and marketing and brand promotion, we cannot be sure that we will sustain profitability. 34

Results of Operations: The following table sets forth, as a percentage of total revenues, the results of our operations for the periods indicated: Period from May 21, 1998 (Inception) Year ended Nine months ended to December 31, December 31, September 30, ------------------- ---------------------- --------------------- ------------------ 1998 1999 1999 2000 ------------------- ---------------------- --------------------- ------------------ (As a Percentage of Total Revenues) Revenues: Advertising 68% 94% 89% 97% Commissions 32 6 11 3 ------------------- ---------------------- --------------------- ------------------ Total revenues 100 100 100 100 Cost of revenues 30 14 16 8 ------------------- ---------------------- --------------------- ------------------ Gross Profit 70 86 84 92 Operating expenses: Sales and marketing 2 37 34 41 General and administrative 27 34 47 24 ------------------- ---------------------- --------------------- ------------------ Total operating expenses 29 71 81 65 ------------------- ---------------------- --------------------- ------------------ Income before taxes 41 15 3 27 Income taxes 7 4 1 11 ------------------- ---------------------- --------------------- ------------------ Net income 34% 11% 2% 16% =================== ====================== ===================== ================== Nine Months Ended September 30, 2000 Compared to Nine Months Ended September 30, 1999 Revenues Our total revenues increased to $2.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from $456,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. The increase in our total revenues was primarily due to an increase in advertising revenues, particularly listing fees for special offers. o Advertising. Advertising revenue increased to $2.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from $405,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. This increase resulted from an increase in the number of travel companies advertising on www.Travelzoo.com and an increase in our rates. o Commissions. Commissions revenue increased to $92,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from $50,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. This increase was due primarily to an increase in the number of site visitors at www.Travelzoo.com. Cost of Revenues Our cost of revenues increased to $226,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from $75,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenues decreased to 8% for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from 16% for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. This decrease resulted primarily from an increase in revenues that was not offset by an increase in our network operations costs. Operating Expenses o Sales and Marketing. Sales and marketing expenses increased to $1.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from $156,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. The increase in sales 35

and marketing expenses was primarily due to the expansion of online advertising of the Travelzoo brand and sponsorships of industry conferences. In addition, sales and marketing expenses increased due to the hiring of additional sales personnel. o General and Administrative. General and administrative expenses increased to $670,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from $212,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. General and administrative expenses increased primarily due to increased salaries and related expenses associated with hiring additional administrative personnel. Income Taxes For the nine months ended September 30, 2000, we recorded an income tax provision of $307,000. For the nine months ended September 30, 1999, we recorded an income tax provision of $3,000. The income tax provisions were computed by applying our effective federal and state tax rates to the income before taxes for the periods. Our income is generally taxed in the U.S. and our effective tax rates reflect the U.S. federal and state statutory rates applicable to our levels of income. Year Ended December 31, 1999 Compared to the Period from May 21 (inception) to December 31, 1998 Revenues Our total revenues increased to $954,000 for the year ended December 31, 1999, from $84,000 for the period ended December 31, 1998. The increase in our total revenues was primarily due to an increase in advertising revenues. o Advertising. Advertising revenue increased to $893,000 for the year ended December 31, 1999, from $57,000 for the period ended December 31, 1998. This increase resulted primarily from an increase in the number of travel companies advertising on www.Travelzoo.com. o Commissions. Commissions revenue increased to $61,000 for the year ended December 31, 1999, from $27,000 for the period ended December 31, 1998. This increase was primarily due to an increase of the number of users of www.Travelzoo.com. Cost of Revenues Our cost of revenues increased to $133,000 for the year ended December 31, 1999, from $25,000 for the period ended December 31, 1998. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenues decreased to 14% for the year ended December 31, 1999, from 30% for the period ended December 31, 1998. This decrease resulted primarily from an increase in revenues that was not offset by an increase in our network operations costs. Operating Expenses o Sales and Marketing. Sales and marketing expenses increased to $351,000 for the year ended December 31, 1999, from $2,000 for the period ended December 31, 1998, and increased as a percentage of revenue to 37% for the year ended December 31, 1999 from 2% for the period ended December 31, 1998. The increase in sales and marketing expenses was primarily due to costs associated with advertising and an increase in the number of our sales and marketing personnel. o General and Administrative. General and administrative expenses increased to $327,000 for the year ended December 31, 1999, from $22,000 for the period ended December 31, 1998. General and administrative expenses increased primarily due to increased salaries and related expenses associated with hiring additional personnel. 36

Income Taxes For the year ended December 31, 1999, we recorded an income tax provision of $39,000. For the period ended December 31, 1998, we recorded an income tax provision of $6,000. Our income is generally taxed in the U.S. and our income tax provision principally reflects federal and state rates applicable to our levels of income. Quarterly Results of Operations The following table sets forth a summary of our unaudited combined quarterly results for 1999 and the first nine months of 2000. This information was derived from unaudited combined interim financial statements that, in the opinion of management, have been prepared on a basis consistent with the financial statements contained elsewhere in this proxy statement and prospectus and include all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for their fair presentation when read in conjunction with the combined financial statements and notes thereto. The results of operations for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for any future period.

Our revenue has increased in each consecutive quarter since inception as a result of increased market acceptance of our services. Sales and marketing expense increased, primarily as a result of increased advertising expenditures and an increase in the number of our sales and marketing personnel. Sales commissions have remained relatively constant as a percentage of revenues, and we expect this to continue. However, the timing and magnitude of marketing initiatives have caused, and will continue to cause, fluctuations in sales and marketing expense as a percentage of revenues. General and administrative expense has increased in every quarter since inception due to an increase in personnel, facilities and increased spending on internal operational and financial infrastructure. In light of the evolving nature of our business and limited operating history, we believe that period to period comparisons of our historical operating results may not be meaningful and should not be relied upon as indications of future performance. Although we have experienced sequential quarterly revenue growth since inception, our historical revenue growth rates are not necessarily indicative of future revenue growth rates. Liquidity and Capital Resources As of September 30, 2000, we had $474,000 in cash. Cash increased from $11,000 on December 31, 1999 primarily as a result of net income and increases in income tax payable and payable to employee offset by increases in accounts receivable and capital expenditures made during the period. As of December 31, 1998, we had $12,000 in cash. Cash remained at a consistent level at the end of 1999 due to net income for the period and increases in operating liabilities offset by increases in receivables. We expect that cash flows generated from operations will continue to be sufficient to provide for working capital needs in the near future. Since inception, we financed our activities primarily through cash flows generated from operations. In addition, we sold common stock to Ralph Bartel, our founder and Chief Executive Officer, for $60,000 in cash and received a non-interest bearing loan of $40,000 from Ralph Bartel. Ralph Bartel owns approximately 52% of our outstanding shares. See "Related Party Transactions--Transactions Involving Ralph Bartel" on page 43. Net cash generated from operating activities was $4,000 during 1999 and $601,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2000. Net cash generated from operating activities resulted primarily from our net income, adjusted for certain non-cash items, and increases in accounts payable and accrued expenses, partly offset by a higher level of accounts receivable due to increased sales. In 1998, net cash used in operating activities was $24,000, principally due to our net income being exceeded by the increase in our accounts receivable. Net cash used in investing activities was $24,000 during 1998 and $6,000 during 1999. In 1998, net cash was used in investing activities for purchases of equipment and a loan provided to Ralph Bartel. See "Related Party Transactions--Transactions Involving Ralph Bartel" on page 43. In 1999, net cash was used in investing activities for purchases of equipment, partly offset by the repayment of the loan by Ralph Bartel. For the nine months ended September 30, 2000, net cash used in investment activities was $181,000 due to capital expenditures for equipment. Net cash provided by financing activities was $60,000 during 1998, $0 during 1999 and $44,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2000. During 2000, we generated net cash from financing activities by a non-interest-bearing loan received from Mr. Ralph Bartel and by sales of our common stock to Mr. Bartel and exercise of stock options by an employee. In 1998, we generated net cash from financing activities from the sale of common stock to Mr. Bartel described above. We believe that our cash flows generated from operations will continue to be sufficient to provide for our working capital needs in the near future. Our capital requirements will depend on a number of factors, including market acceptance of our products and services, the amount of our resources we devote 38

to www.Travelzoo.com and expansion of our operations and the amount of our resources we devote to promoting awareness of the Travelzoo brand. Consistent with our growth, we have experienced a substantial increase in our sales and marketing expenses, capital expenditures since inception, and we anticipate that these increases will continue for the foreseeable future. In addition, we expect significant expenses to occur in the fourth quarter of 2000 and first quarter of 2001 related to the consummation of the merger described herein and the related registration of our shares with the SEC. We believe cash on hand and generated during those periods will be sufficient to pay such expenses. In addition, we will continue to evaluate possible investments in businesses, products and technologies, the consummation of any of which would increase our capital requirements. Although we currently believe that we have sufficient capital resources to meet our anticipated working capital and capital expenditure requirements beyond the next 12 months, unanticipated events and opportunities may require us to sell additional equity or debt securities or establish new credit facilities to raise capital in order to meet our capital requirements. If we sell additional equity or convertible debt securities, the sale could dilute the ownership of our existing stockholders. If we issue debt securities or establish a new credit facility, our fixed obligations could increase and result in operating covenants that would restrict our operations. We cannot be sure that any such financing will be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us. Recent Accounting Pronouncements In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued SFAS No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities. SFAS No. 133, as amended by SFAS No. 137, Deferral of the Effective Date of FASB Statement No. 133, and SFAS No. 138, Accounting for Certain Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging Activities, an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 133, established accounting and reporting standards for derivative instruments and requires recognition of all derivatives as assets or liabilities in the statement of financial position and measurement of those instruments at fair value. SFAS No. 133 is effective for all fiscal quarters of fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2000. We will adopt the standard no later than the first quarter of fiscal 2001, and are in the process of determining the impact that adoption will have on the combined financial statements. In December 1999, the SEC issued Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 101, Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements, as amended by SAB Nos. 101A and 101B, which provides guidance on the recognition, presentation, and disclosure of revenue in financial statements filed with the SEC. SAB No. 101 outlines the basic criteria that must be met to recognize revenue and provides guidance for disclosure related to revenue recognition policies. We will adopt SAB No. 101 in the fourth quarter of 2000, and have determined that adoption will not have an impact on the combined financial statements. 39

CERTAIN TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN TRAVELZOO AND ITS AFFILIATES Silicon Channels Corporation Silicon Channels Corporation, formerly an affiliate of Travelzoo Bahamas, was incorporated in California on September 28, 1998 with Ralph Bartel as the sole stockholder. Silicon Channels did business under the name "Travelzoo.com Sales, Inc." On October 10, 1998, Travelzoo.com Corporation and Silicon Channels Corporation entered into a letter agreement whereby Silicon Channels agreed to manage the technical platform, marketing, customer support and billing for the classified publishing business of the Travelzoo.com website in return for a 5% commission on the quarterly net income from such business. The October 10, 1998 agreement was subsequently replaced by a Service Agreement dated January 2, 1999. In the January 2, 1999 Agreement, Silicon Channels agreed to perform all operation services with respect to the Travelzoo.com website in return for 50% of the net income before taxes generated from the operation of the Travelzoo.com website. All assets, other than the domain name Travelzoo.com, used in the operation of the Travelzoo.com website were owned by Silicon Channels. Exchange of Shares of Silicon Channels During 2001 the board of directors of Travelzoo Bahamas determined that it was advisable to combine the operations of Silicon Channels with the operations of Travelzoo. In anticipation of the combination, Travelzoo Bahamas formed Travelzoo Delaware, a Delaware company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Travelzoo Bahamas. Because of his position as the controlling stockholder of both Travelzoo Bahamas and Silicon Channels, Mr. Bartel requested the board of directors of Travelzoo Bahamas to designate an independent committee of disinterested directors to evaluate, negotiate and approve the terms of such transaction. To assist in the process, Travelzoo Bahamas retained The Mentor Group to prepare a valuation of Travelzoo Bahamas and Silicon Channels, and to render a fairness opinion relating to the transaction. Based on discussions with the independent committee, Mr. Bartel submitted a proposal to Travelzoo Bahamas of the terms on which he was willing to contribute the shares of Silicon Channels to Travelzoo Delaware. The Mentor Group delivered its opinion to the independent committee that, assuming the merger of Travelzoo Bahamas into Travelzoo Delaware is consummated, the contribution of shares of Silicon Channels to Travelzoo Delaware was fair, from a financial point of view, to the shareholders of Travelzoo Bahamas and Travelzoo Delaware. The Mentor Group's fairness opinion is more fully described below in the section entitled "Opinion of Travelzoo Financial Advisor" on page 44. After discussion and negotiations between Mr. Bartel and the independent committee, and after considering the opinion provided by The Mentor Group, the independent committee approved the proposal submitted by Mr. Bartel, under which: o Mr. Bartel would contribute all of the outstanding shares of Silicon Channels to Travelzoo Delaware, a newly-formed subsidiary of Travelzoo Bahamas; o Travelzoo Delaware would issue an aggregate of 8,129,273 shares of common stock to Mr. Bartel, representing 42% of the outstanding shares; and o Travelzoo Delaware would issue to Mr. Bartel options to acquire 2,158,349 shares of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware at an exercise price of $1.00 per share, exercisable at any time during the ten-year period following the date of issuance. Mr. Bartel and Travelzoo Delaware entered into this agreement and the transaction was completed on January 22, 2001. The shares of Travelzoo Delaware which are now held by Travelzoo Bahamas will be cancelled as a result of the merger, as described under "The Merger" on page 16. Silicon Channels is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Travelzoo Delaware. Travelzoo Bahamas now owns 58% of 43

Travelzoo Delaware and Mr. Bartel owns 42% of Travelzoo Delaware, which will be the surviving corporation of the merger described in this proxy statement and prospectus. On June 21, 1999, Mr. Bartel filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to register the trademark "Travelzoo," and it was registered with the PTO on January 23, 2001. On January 22, 2001, Mr. Bartel transferred the ownership of the pending trademark "Travelzoo" to Travelzoo Delaware. In 2000, Mr. Bartel loaned Silicon Channels $40,000 on an unsecured basis. The loan did not bear interest and was repayable on or before December 31, 2000. On December 31, 2000, Mr. Bartel agreed to extend the loan until March 31, 2001. Opinion of Travelzoo Financial Advisor Travelzoo Bahamas retained The Mentor Group to prepare a valuation of Travelzoo Bahamas and Silicon Channels, and to render its opinion as to such transaction to the independent committee of our board of directors. The Mentor Group was given the opportunity to review certain financial information relating to Travelzoo Bahamas and Silicon Channels and to discuss the business operations and financial condition of Travelzoo Bahamas and Silicon Channels with our management of each company. Based on such review and discussions, The Mentor Group rendered its opinion that, after taking into account the proposed merger of Travelzoo Bahamas into Travelzoo Delaware on the terms described herein, Ralph Bartel's contribution of all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Silicon Channels to Travelzoo Delaware in exchange for 8,129,273 shares of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware and options to purchase 2,158,349 shares of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware was fair, from a financial point of view, to the shareholders of Travelzoo Bahamas and Travelzoo Delaware. 44

We must exercise our right to redeem our common stock by providing each Triggering Holder written notice by electronic mail, facsimile or overnight courier, after the occurrence of a Triggering Event. Such written notice must indicate the anticipated date on which we will redeem the shares. A "Triggering Event" shall be deemed to have occurred at such time as we receive revocation by any holder of our common stock of consent to electronic notice and communications from us. A "Triggering Holder" is any holder of our common stock who takes action resulting in a Triggering Event. Preferred Stock Our board of directors has the authority, without action by the stockholders, to designate and issue our preferred stock in one or more series and to designate the rights, preferences and privileges of each series, which may be greater than the rights of our common stock. It is not possible to state the actual effect of the issuance of any shares of our preferred stock upon the rights of holders of our common stock until the board of directors determines the specific rights of the holders of our preferred stock. However, the effects might include: o restricting dividends on our common stock; 45

o diluting the voting power of our common stock; o impairing the liquidation rights of our common stock; or o delaying or preventing a change of control of us without further action by our stockholders. At the completion of the merger, no shares of our preferred stock will be outstanding, and we have no present plans to issue any shares of our preferred stock. Anti-Takeover Effects of Our Certificate of Incorporation and By-laws and Delaware Law Some provisions of Delaware law and our certificate of incorporation and by-laws could make the following more difficult: o acquisition of us by means of a tender offer; o acquisition of us by means of a proxy contest or otherwise; or o removal of our incumbent officers and directors. These provisions are intended to discourage coercive takeover practices and inadequate takeover bids. These provisions also are designed to encourage persons seeking to acquire control of us to first negotiate with our board of directors. We believe that the benefits of increased protection give us the potential ability to negotiate with the proponent of an unfriendly or unsolicited proposal to acquire or restructure us and outweigh the disadvantages of discouraging such proposals because negotiation of such proposals could result in an improvement of their terms. Stockholder Meetings Under our by-laws, only our Chairman of the Board, our President or our board of directors may call special meetings of our stockholders. Requirements for Advance Notification of Stockholder Nominations and Proposals Our by-laws establish advance notice procedures with respect to stockholder proposals and nomination of candidates for election as directors, other than nominations made by or at the direction of our board of directors. Delaware Anti-Takeover Law Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law generally prohibits a publicly held Delaware corporation from engaging in a "business combination" with an "interested stockholder" for a period of three years following the date the person became an interested stockholder, unless the "business combination" or the transaction in which the person became an interested stockholder is approved in a prescribed manner. A "business combination" includes a merger, asset or stock sale, or other transaction resulting in a financial benefit to the interested stockholder. An "interested stockholder" is a person who, together with affiliates and associates, owns or within three years prior to the determination of interested stockholder status, did own, 15% or more of a corporation's voting stock. Section 203 may have an anti-takeover effect with respect to transactions not approved in advance by our board of directors, and may discourage attempts that might result in a premium over the market price for the shares of common stock held by stockholders. No Cumulative Voting Our certificate of incorporation and by-laws do not provide for cumulative voting in the election of directors. 46

Undesignated Preferred Stock The authorization of undesignated preferred stock makes it possible for our board of directors to issue our preferred stock with voting or other rights or preferences that could impede the success of any attempt to change control of us. These and other provisions may have the effect of deferring hostile takeovers or delaying changes of control of our management. BOOK-ENTRY SHARE OWNERSHIP The share register of Travelzoo Bahamas has been maintained electronically, and share certificates have not been issued. Ownership of the shares of Travelzoo Delaware will also be on a book-entry basis initially, and we will encourage our shareholders to continue holding their shares in book-entry form, and effecting any purchases or sales of their shares on a book entry basis. On exchange of your shares of common stock of Travelzoo Bahamas for shares of common stock of Travelzoo Delaware, your ownership interest will be credited to an account maintained in your name by the firm we designate as our registrar and transfer agent. Shareholders will have the right to request that share certificates be issued to them, but we expect to charge a fee for such issuance. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS The Delaware General Corporation Law permits the indemnification by a Delaware corporation of its directors, officers, employees and other agents against expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement in connection with specified actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than derivative actions which are by or in the right of the corporation) if they acted in good faith and in a manner they reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful. A similar standard of care is applicable in the case of derivative actions, except that indemnification only extends to expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with defense or settlement of such an action and requires court approval before there can be any indemnification where the person seeking indemnification has been found liable to the corporation. As permitted by Delaware law, the certificate of incorporation of Travelzoo Delaware provides that no director will be personally liable to Travelzoo Delaware or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (a) for any breach of duty of loyalty to Travelzoo or to its stockholders, (b) for acts or omissions not in good faith or that involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (c) under Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, or (d) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. The certificate of incorporation of Travelzoo Delaware further provides that we must indemnify our directors and executive officers and may indemnify our other officers and employees and agents to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law. We believe that indemnification under our certificate of incorporation covers negligence and gross negligence on the part of indemnified parties. Travelzoo Delaware has entered into indemnification agreements with each of its directors and officers. These agreements, among other things, require us to indemnify such directors and officers for certain expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and settlement amounts incurred by any such person in any action or proceeding, including any action by or in the right of Travelzoo, arising out of such person's services as a director or officer of Travelzoo, any subsidiary of Travelzoo or any other company or enterprise to which the person provides services at our request. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to our directors, officers and controlling persons pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, we have been advised that in 47

the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. COMPARATIVE RIGHTS OF STOCKHOLDERS As a result of the merger, the stockholders of Travelzoo Bahamas, whose rights are currently governed by the Bahamas International Business Companies Act 1989, the Memorandum and Articles of Association of Travelzoo, will become stockholders of Travelzoo Delaware, whose rights will be governed by Delaware law, the Travelzoo Delaware certificate of incorporation and the Travelzoo Delaware by-laws. The following discussion is intended only to highlight certain material differences between the rights of corporate stockholders under Bahamian law and Delaware law generally and specifically with respect to stockholders of Travelzoo Bahamas and stockholders of Travelzoo Delaware pursuant to their respective charters and by-laws. The discussion does not constitute a complete comparison of the differences between the rights of such holders or the applicable provisions of the BIBC, the DGCL, the Travelzoo Bahamas Memorandum and Articles and the Travelzoo Delaware certificate and by-laws. Election of Directors Under Delaware law, directors, unless their terms are staggered, are elected at each annual stockholder meeting. Vacancies on the board of directors may be filled by the stockholders or directors, unless the certificate of incorporation or a bylaw provides otherwise. The certificate of incorporation may authorize the election of certain directors by one or more classes or series of shares, and the certificate of incorporation, an initial bylaw or a bylaw adopted by a vote of the stockholders may provide for staggered terms for the directors. The certificate of incorporation or the by-laws also may allow the stockholders or the board of directors to fix or change the number of directors, but a corporation must have at least one director. The Travelzoo Delaware board of directors, which will consist of seven members following completion of the merger, has not been established with staggered terms for directors or divided into classes. Subject to certain restrictions, nominations to the Travelzoo Delaware board of directors may be made by either the board or stockholders. Each share of Travelzoo Delaware common stock is entitled to one vote per share with respect to the election of directors (and each other matter coming before any meeting of the stockholders). Under Delaware law, stockholders do not have cumulative voting rights unless the certificate of incorporation so provides. The Travelzoo Delaware certificate does not provide for cumulative voting, so stockholders holding more than 50% of the outstanding shares entitled to vote may be able to elect all members of the board of directors. Under Bahamian law, directors are elected by stockholders for such term as the stockholders may prescribe. The Memorandum or Articles of a company may authorize the directors to elect directors for such term as they prescribe. Currently, the Travelzoo Bahamas Articles of Association provide that the number of members of the Travelzoo Bahamas board of directors shall be at least one, but not more than seven. The Travelzoo Bahamas Memorandum of Association and the Travelzoo Bahamas Articles of Association do not provide for a staggered board of directors. The Travelzoo Bahamas Articles state that either the directors' or members' resolution for election of any director shall state the term of the directed thereby. Under Bahamian law, all shares vote as one class and each whole share has one vote unless the Memorandum or Articles state otherwise. The Travelzoo Bahamas Memorandum and Articles do not provide for cumulative voting. Removal of Directors Under Delaware law, non-classified directors, or the entire board may be removed with or without cause, by the holders of a majority of the shares then entitled to vote at an election of the directors. 48

Under Bahamian law, a director remains in office until his successors takes office, or until his death, resignation or removal. If the director is a company then it remains in office until the making of an order for winding up or dissolution or in the event the company becomes defunct. A director can be removed if not less than three (3) directors request his resignation in writing unless the Memorandum or Articles or any unanimous agreement of the stockholders limit this right. A director may resign by giving written notice to the company expressing the intent to resign. The Travelzoo Bahamas Articles contain a provision that directors may be removed by resolution of the stockholders or by other directors if at least two directors request resignation in writing. Action by Written Consent Delaware law provides that, unless limited by the certificate of incorporation, any action that could be taken by stockholders at a meeting may be taken without a meeting if a consent (or consents) in writing, setting forth the action so taken, is signed by the holders of record of outstanding stock having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted. The Travelzoo Delaware certificate of incorporation does not limit such action by written consent. Bahamian law provides that, unless limited by the Memorandum, Articles or any unanimous stockholder agreement, any action that may be taken by the directors or a committee of directors at a meeting may also be taken by a resolution of directors or a committee of directors consented to in writing, telex, telefax, telegram, cable or other written electronic communication. Bahamian law does not require notice under this provision. Also, unless limited by the Memorandum or Articles, stockholders may take any action that may be taken by members at a meeting by resolution of all members consented to in writing, telex, telefax, cable or other written electronic communication. As with consents of directors, no notice is required under this provision. The Travelzoo Bahamas Memorandum and Articles do not provide for taking action by written consent. Amendments to Charter Under Delaware law, unless a higher vote is required in the certificate of incorporation, an amendment to the certificate of incorporation of a corporation may be approved by a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote upon the proposed amendment. The Travelzoo Delaware certificate of incorporation does not require a higher vote to amend its terms and provisions. Under Bahamian law, unless the Memorandum or Articles limit amendment, the Articles may be amended by resolution of the directors. A copy of any resolution authorizing the amendment to the Articles shall be submitted to the Registrar with proper authentication. The amendment will take effect from the time it is registered with the Registrar. Companies that willfully, and Directors who knowingly, permit the amendment to not be submitted to the Registrar are subject to monetary penalties. The Travelzoo Bahamas Memorandum of Association provides that the Memorandum may be amended by the directors or the stockholders. Amendments to By-laws Delaware law provides that a corporation's by-laws may be amended by that corporation's stockholders, or, if so provided in the corporation's certificate of incorporation, the power to amend the corporation's by-laws also may be conferred on the corporation's directors. The Travelzoo Delaware by-laws provide that the board of directors may amend, repeal or alter the by-laws, but the stockholders may make additional by-laws and may alter or repeal any by-law whether or not adopted by the directors. Under Bahamian law, unless the Memorandum or Articles limit amendment, the Memorandum may be amended by resolution of the directors. A copy of any resolution authorizing the amendment to the Memorandum shall be submitted to the Registrar with proper authentication. The amendment will take effect from the 49

time it is registered with the Registrar. Companies that willfully, and Directors who knowingly, permit the amendment to not be submitted to the Registrar are subject to monetary penalties. The Travelzoo Bahamas Articles of Association provide that they may be amended by the directors or the stockholders unless the Articles specifically provide that a resolution of the directors is subject to the resolution of the stockholders. In such case an amendment must be approved by a resolution of the stockholders. Special Meetings of Stockholders Delaware law provides that special meetings of the stockholders of a corporation may be called by the corporation's board of directors or by such other persons as may be authorized in the corporation's certificate of incorporation or by-laws. The Travelzoo Delaware by-laws provide that special meetings may only be called by the Travelzoo Delaware board of directors, the Chairman of the Travelzoo Delaware board or the President of Travelzoo Delaware. Bahamian law provides that meetings of the stockholders may be called by the directors of the company, unless the Memorandum, Articles or unanimous stockholder agreement provides otherwise. In addition, subject to any provision in the Memorandum, Articles or a less than unanimous stockholder agreement, stockholders comprising more than 50% of the votes of outstanding shares may by written request compel the directors to convene a meeting of the stockholders. The Travelzoo Bahamas Articles provide that a special meeting may be called by the Travelzoo Bahamas board of directors or the holders of more than 50% of all the outstanding voting shares of Travelzoo Bahamas. Vote on Extraordinary Corporate Transactions Delaware law provides that, unless otherwise specified in a corporation's certificate of incorporation or unless the provisions of Delaware law relating to "business combinations" discussed below are applicable, a sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the corporation's assets, a merger or consolidation of the corporation with another corporation or a dissolution of the corporation requires the affirmative vote of the board of directors (except in certain limited circumstances) plus, with certain exceptions, the affirmative vote of a majority of the outstanding stock entitled to vote thereon. The foregoing provisions apply to Travelzoo Delaware and its stockholders. Bahamian law provides that any sale, transfer, lease, exchange or other disposition of more than 50%, by value, of the company must first be approved by the directors. Second, the directors must submit the proposal to the stockholders for it to be authorized by a resolution of the stockholders. If a stockholders meeting is to be called all stockholders must receive notice of the meeting with an outline of the transaction, whether or not they are entitled to vote. If it is proposed to obtain written consent, then an outline of the transaction must be given to every stockholder whether or not she, he or it is entitled to vote on the transaction. Rights of Inspection Delaware law allows any stockholder of a Delaware corporation, upon written demand under oath stating the purpose thereof, to have the right during the usual hours for business to inspect for any proper purpose the corporation's stock ledger, a list of its stockholders, and its other books and records, and to make copies or extracts therefrom. A proper purpose means a purpose reasonably related to such person's interest as a stockholder. Bahamian law allows any stockholder, or his representative, of a Bahamas corporation, upon written request specifying the purpose, in furtherance of a proper purpose, the right to inspect the books, records, minutes and consents kept by the company and to make copies or extracts thereof. The purpose must be reasonably related to the stockholder's interest. If by resolution of the directors, the company determines that the request is not in the best interest of the company may deny the request. A stockholder has the right to pursue a 50

judicial remedy within 90 days of receiving notice of a company's refusal to provide access to the records. Dividends Subject to any restrictions contained in a corporation's certificate of incorporation, Delaware law generally provides that a corporation may declare and pay dividends out of a surplus (defined as the excess, if any, of net assets over capital) or, when no surplus exists, out of net profits for the fiscal year in which the dividend is declared and/or the preceding fiscal year. Dividends may not be paid out of net profits if the capital of the corporation is less than the amount of capital represented by the issued and outstanding stock of all classes having a preference upon the distribution of assets. The Travelzoo Delaware certificate of incorporation contains no additional restrictions on the declaration or payment of dividends. Under Bahamian law, subject to any limitations in the Memorandum or Articles of a company incorporated under Bahamian law, directors may declare and pay dividends in money, shares or property. The declaration will be made by a resolution of the directors. The directors may only make the declaration if immediately after paying the dividend the company will be able to meet all of its liabilities in the ordinary course of business and the realizable value of the assets will be equal to or greater than the total liabilities (excluding deferred taxes) and its issue and outstanding share capital. The realizable value of the assets as determined by the directors is conclusive unless a question of law is involved. The Travelzoo Bahamas Articles contain substantially similar provisions as the BIBC, and also provide that dividends may be paid to one class of stockholder to the exclusion of other classes or paid in unequal amounts. Indemnification and Limitation of Liability of Directors and Officers Delaware law permits a corporation to adopt a provision in its certificate of incorporation eliminating or limiting the personal liability of a director to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except that such provision shall not limit the liability of a director for: (i) any breach of the director's duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) liability under Section 174 of the DGCL for unlawful payment of dividends or stock purchases or redemptions, or (iv) any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. The Travelzoo Delaware certificate of incorporation limits the personal liability of Travelzoo Delaware's directors for monetary damages to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law. Under Delaware law, a corporation may indemnify any person made a party or threatened to be made a party to any type of proceeding (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation) because he is or was an officer, director, employee or agent of the corporation, or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or entity, against expenses, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred in connection with such proceeding: (1) if he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation; or (2) in the case of a criminal proceeding, he had no reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful. A corporation may indemnify any person made a party or threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit brought by or in the right of the corporation because he was an officer, director, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or other entity, against expenses actually and reasonably incurred in connection with such action or suit if he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, except that there may be no such indemnification if the person is found liable to the corporation unless, in such a case, the court determines the person is entitled thereto. A corporation must indemnify a director, officer, employee or 51

agent against expenses actually and reasonably incurred by him who successfully defends himself in a proceeding to which he was a party because he was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation. Expenses incurred by an officer or director (or other employees or agents as deemed appropriate by the board of directors) in defending a civil or criminal proceeding may be paid by the corporation in advance of the final disposition of such proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such director or officer to repay such amount if it shall ultimately be determined that he is not entitled to be indemnified by the corporation. The Delaware law indemnification and expense advancement provisions are not exclusive of any other rights which may be granted by the by-laws, a vote of stockholders or disinterested directors, agreement or otherwise. As described under "Indemnification of Directors and Officers" on page 47, the Travelzoo Delaware by-laws provide for indemnification to the fullest extent not prohibited by law. Under Bahamian law, subject to any limitations in the Memorandum, Articles or in any unanimous stockholder agreement, a company incorporated in the Bahamas may indemnify certain parties against all expenses, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement and reasonably incurred in connection with legal, administrative or investigative proceedings in certain situations. Specifically, any person who is or was a party, or is threatened to be made a party to a threatened, pending, or completed civil, criminal, administrative or investigative proceeding by reason of the fact that they are or were a director, officer or liquidator may be indemnified. Also any person who serves or was serving as a director officer of liquidator of another company at the request of the indemnifying company may be indemnified. Persons will only be indemnified if they acted honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interest of the company, and with respect to criminal proceedings, the person had no reasonable cause to believe that the conduct was unlawful. Absent fraud, the decision of the directors as to the nature of the conduct of the party seeking indemnification is conclusive unless a question of law is involved. The termination of any proceedings by any judgment, order, settlement, conviction or the refusal of the plaintiff or prosecutor to continue the case will not, by itself, preclude indemnification. The successful defense of any proceedings necessarily lead to the companies indemnification of all reasonable expenses associated with the judgment, fines, and amounts paid in settlement in connection with the proceedings. The Travelzoo Bahamas Articles provide for indemnification of directors to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. The Travelzoo Bahamas Articles authorize indemnification of its officers and directors to the fullest extent permitted by Bahamian law. Appraisal Rights of Dissenting Stockholders Under Delaware law, a stockholder of a Delaware corporation is generally entitled to demand appraisal and obtain payment of the fair value of his or her shares in the event of any plan of merger or consolidation to which the corporation, the shares of which he or she holds, is a party. The corporation must notify its stockholders at least 20 days prior to the stockholders meeting at which the merger will be voted upon that such appraisal rights are available. In order to exercise the stockholder's right to dissent, the stockholder must provide the company with a written demand for appraisal before the vote on the merger. Within 10 days after the effective date of the merger, the surviving corporation shall notify each dissenting stockholder who did not vote in favor of the merger. Within 20 days after the mailing of such notice any stockholder entitled to appraisal rights may make a written demand to the surviving corporation for appraisal. Within 120 days after the effective date of the merger, the surviving corporation or any stockholder entitled to appraisal rights may file a petition in the Delaware Court of Chancery demanding a determination of the value of the stock of such stockholders. Also within 120 days after the effective date of the merger, any stockholder entitled to appraisal rights is entitled to a statement from the surviving corporation of the aggregate number of shares not voted in favor of the merger and with respect to which demands for appraisal have been received and the aggregate number of holders of such shares. 52

At a hearing on any petition filed with the court, the court will determine which stockholders have complied with the appraisal rights process and are entitled to appraisal rights. After determining the stockholders entitled to appraisal, the court will appraise the shares and determine their fair value and the surviving company shall pay such fair value immediately for those stockholders without certificates and upon surrender of the certificates for those stockholders with certificates. Like Delaware law, under Bahamian law a stockholder of a Bahamian corporation is generally entitled to demand appraisal and obtain payment of the fair value of his or her shares in the event of any plan of merger or consolidation to which the corporation, the shares of which he or she holds, is a party. In addition, under Bahamian law, stockholders have the right to dissent in the event of a sale, transfer, lease, exchange or other disposition of more than 50% of the assets of the company, certain redemptions of minority stockholders and certain reorganizations with permission of the court. In order to exercise the stockholder's right to dissent, the stockholder must give written notice to the company at or before the stockholders meeting at which the merger will be voted upon. Such written notice shall include a statement that the stockholder proposes to demand payment for his shares if the action is taken. Within 20 days after the date on which the vote of stockholders authorizing the merger is taken, the company shall give written notice of the authorization or consent to each stockholder who gave written objection. Within 20 days after the date on which the copy of the plan of merger or an outline thereof was given to the stockholder, a dissenting stockholder must give written notice to the company of his decision to elect to dissent, provided that a stockholder who dissents must dissent with respect of all shares that he holds in the company. Such notice must state: o his name and address; o the number and classes or series of shares in respect of which he dissents; and o a demand for payment of the fair value of his shares. Upon the giving of a notice of election to dissent, the stockholder who gave the notice will no longer have any of the rights of a stockholder of the company except the right to be paid the fair value of his shares. Within 7 days immediately following the date of the expiration of the period within which stockholders may give their notices of election to dissent, or within 7 days immediately following the date on which the proposed merger is put into effect, whichever is later, the surviving company of the merger, shall make a written offer to each dissenting stockholder to purchase his shares at a specified price that the company determines to be their fair value. Unlike Delaware law, the parties may mutually agree on the value of the shares. If, within 30 days immediately following the date on which the offer is made, the company making the offer and the dissenting stockholder agree upon the price to be paid for his shares, the company shall pay to the stockholder the amount in money upon the surrender of the certificates representing his shares. If the company and a dissenting stockholder fail within such 30 day period to agree on the price to be paid for the shares owned by the stockholder, unlike Delaware law where a court determines the value, within 20 days immediately following the date on which the 30 day period expires, the following shall apply: o the company and the dissenting stockholder shall each designate an appraiser; o the 2 designated appraisers together shall designate a third appraiser; o the 3 appraisers shall fix the fair value of the shares owned by the dissenting stockholder as of the close of business on the day prior to the date on which the vote of stockholders authorizing the merger was taken, and that value is binding on the company and the dissenting stockholder for all purposes; and 53

o the company shall pay to the stockholder the amount in money upon the surrender by him of the certificates representing his shares. Preemptive Rights Neither Delaware nor Bahamian law provides for preemptive rights to acquire a corporation's unissued stock. However, such right may be expressly granted to the stockholders in a corporation's certificate or articles of incorporation. Neither the Travelzoo Delaware certificate of incorporation nor the Travelzoo Bahamas Memorandum provide for preemptive rights. The Memorandum states that in the absence of an explicit grant of preemptive rights in the terms of the issue of the shares the stockholder will not have preemptive rights. Stockholder Suits Under Delaware law, a stockholder may institute a lawsuit against one or more directors, either on his own behalf, or derivatively on behalf of the corporation. An individual stockholder may also commence a lawsuit on behalf of himself or herself and other similarly situated stockholders when the requirements for maintaining a class action under Delaware law have been met. As noted above, Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL enables a corporation in its certificate of incorporation to eliminate or limit, and the Travelzoo Delaware certificate of incorporation eliminates, the personal liability of a director to the corporation and its stockholders for monetary damages for violations of the director's fiduciary duty, except (i) for any breach of a director's duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) for liability pursuant to Section 174 of the DGCL (providing for liability of directors for unlawful payment of dividends or unlawful stock purchases or redemptions) or (iv) for any transaction from which a director derived an improper personal benefit. Bahamian law does not specify stockholder suit causes of actions or methods of commencing suit. Business Combination Restrictions In general, Delaware law prevents an "Interested Stockholder" (defined generally as a person with 15% or more of a corporation's outstanding voting stock, with the exception of any person who owned and has continued to own shares in excess of the 15% limitation since December 23, 1987) from engaging in a "Business Combination" with a Delaware corporation for three years following the date such person became an Interested Stockholder. The term "Business Combination" includes mergers or consolidations with an Interested Stockholder and certain other transactions with an Interested Stockholder, including, without limitation: (i) any sale, lease, exchange, mortgage, pledge, transfer or other disposition (except proportionately as a stockholder of such corporation) to or with the Interested Stockholder of assets (except proportionately as a stockholder of the corporation) having an aggregate market value equal to 10% or more of the aggregate market value of all assets of the corporation or of certain subsidiaries thereof determined on a consolidated basis or the aggregate market value of all the outstanding stock of the corporation; (ii) any transaction which results in the issuance or transfer by the corporation or by certain subsidiaries thereof of stock of the corporation or such subsidiary to the Interested Stockholder, except pursuant to certain transfers in a conversion or exchange or a pro rata distribution to all stockholders of the corporation or certain other transactions, none of which increase the Interested Stockholder's proportionate ownership of any class or series of the corporation's or such subsidiary's stock; (iii) any transaction involving the corporation or certain subsidiaries thereof which has the effect, directly or indirectly, of increasing the proportionate share of the stock of any class or series, or securities convertible into stock of the corporation or any subsidiary which is owned by the Interested Stockholder (except as a result of immaterial changes due to fractional share adjustments or as a result of any purchase or redemption of any shares of stock not caused directly or indirectly by the Interested Stockholder); or (iv) any receipt by the Interested Stockholder of the benefit 54

(except proportionately as a stockholder of such corporation) of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges, or other financial benefits provided by or through the corporation or certain subsidiaries. The three-year moratorium may be avoided if: (i) before such person became an Interested Stockholder, the board of directors of the corporation approved either the Business Combination or the transaction in which the Interested Stockholder became an Interested Stockholder; or (ii) upon consummation of the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an Interested Stockholder, the stockholder owned at least 85% of the voting stock of the corporation outstanding at the time the transaction commenced (excluding shares held by directors who are also officers of the corporation and by employee stock ownership plans that do not provide employees with the right to determine confidentially whether shares held subject to the plan will be tendered in a tender or exchange offer); or (iii) on or following the date on which such person became an Interested Stockholder, the Business Combination is approved by the board of directors of the corporation and authorized at an annual or special meeting of stockholders (not by written consent) by the affirmative vote of the stockholders of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation not owned by the Interested Stockholder. The Business Combination restrictions described above do not apply if, among other things: (i) the corporation's original certificate of incorporation contains a provision expressly electing not to be governed by the statute; (ii) the corporation by action by the holders of a majority of the voting stock of the corporation approve an amendment to its certificate of incorporation or by-laws expressly electing not to be governed by the statute (effective twelve (12) months after the amendment's adoption), which amendment shall not be applicable to any business combination with a person who was an Interested Stockholder at or prior to the time of the amendment; or (iii) the corporation does not have a class of voting stock that is (a) listed on a national securities exchange, (b) authorized for quotation on Nasdaq or a similar quotation system; or (c) held of record by more than 2,000 stockholders. The statute also does not apply to certain Business Combinations with an Interested Stockholder when such combination is proposed after the public announcement of, and before the consummation or abandonment of, a merger or consolidation, a sale of 50% or more of the aggregate market value of the assets of the corporation on a consolidated basis or the aggregate market value of all outstanding shares of the corporation, or a tender offer for 50% or more of the outstanding voting shares of the corporation, if the triggering transaction is with or by a person who either was not an Interested Stockholder during the previous three years or who became an Interested Stockholder with board, and if the transaction is approved or not opposed by a majority of the current directors who were also directors prior to any person becoming an Interested Stockholder during the previous three years. Travelzoo Delaware is subject to the Business Combination restrictions described above. Under Bahamian law there are no restrictions on business combinations of International Business Companies other than the rules under extraordinary transactions. 55

Independent Auditors' Report The Board of Directors and Stockholders Travelzoo.com Corporation: We have audited the accompanying combined balance sheets of Travelzoo.com Corporation and affiliate (collectively, the Companies) as of December 31, 1998 and 1999, and the related combined statements of operations, stockholders' equity, and cash flows for the period from May 21, 1998 (inception) to December 31, 1998 and for the year ended December 31, 1999. These combined financial statements are the responsibility of the Companies' management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these combined financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. The accompanying combined financial statements include the accounts of Travelzoo.com Corporation and affiliate, as defined in Note 1. The combined financial statements present the combined accounts of entities majority-owned by a principal stockholder engaged in the operation of the www.Travelzoo.com website. In our opinion, the combined financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the combined financial position of Travelzoo.com Corporation and affiliate as of December 31, 1998 and 1999, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the period from May 21, 1998 (inception) to December 31, 1998 and for the year ended December 31, 1999, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. /s/ KPMG LLP Mountain View, California August 6, 2000, except as to Notes 9 and 10, which are as of January 22, 2001 F-2

TRAVELZOO.COM CORPORATION AND AFFILIATE Notes to Combined Financial Statements December 31, 1998 and 1999 (All information as of and for the nine months ended September 30, 1999 and 2000 is unaudited.) (1) Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (a) Description of Business The accompanying combined financial statements include the accounts of Travelzoo.com Corporation and its affiliate Silicon Channels Corporation dba Travelzoo.com Sales, Inc. (collectively the Companies). Travelzoo.com Corporation was incorporated in the Bahamas on May 21, 1998, and Silicon Channels Corporation was incorporated in California on September 28, 1998. The Companies operate the www.Travelzoo.com website that provides an on-line advertising medium for the travel industry. (b) Basis of Presentation These combined financial statements present the Companies on a combined basis because of their common ownership by Mr. Ralph Bartel (the Principal Stockholder), and because these entities combined represent the historical operations of the www.Travelzoo.com website business. As of September 30, 2000, the Principal Stockholder owned 100% of the outstanding common stock of Silicon Channels Corporation and approximately 53% of the outstanding common stock of Travelzoo.com Corporation. The 47% of Travelzoo.com Corporation common stock not owned by the Principal Stockholder is owned by approximately 700,000 individual stockholders. On October 10, 1998, Travelzoo.com Corporation and Silicon Channels Corporation entered into an agreement whereby Silicon Channels agreed to manage the technical platform, marketing, customer support, and billing for the classified publishing business of the www.Travelzoo.com website in return for a 5% commission on the quarterly net income from such business. The October 10, 1998 agreement was subsequently replaced by a Service Agreement dated January 2, 1999. In the January 2, 1999 agreement, Silicon Channels agreed to perform all operation services for the www.Travelzoo.com website in return for 50% of the income before income taxes generated by the website. All assets, other than the domain name, www.Travelzoo.com, used in the operation of the www.Travelzoo.com website are owned by Silicon Channels. The income share transactions and all other intercompany transactions have been eliminated on combination. The accompanying combined condensed balance sheet as of September 30, 2000, the combined condensed statements of operations and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 1999 and 2000, and the combined condensed statement of stockholders' equity for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 are unaudited. In the opinion of the Companies' management, the unaudited interim combined condensed financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the audited combined financial statements and include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for their fair presentation. The results for the nine month period ended September 30, 2000, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ended December 31, 2000. F-7

TRAVELZOO.COM CORPORATION AND AFFILIATE Notes to Combined Financial Statements December 31, 1998 and 1999 (All information as of and for the nine months ended September 30, 1999 and 2000 is unaudited.) (c) Use of Estimates Management of the Companies have made a number of estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities to prepare these financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Actual results could differ from those estimates. (d) Property and Equipment Property and equipment is stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation. Property and equipment are depreciated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets of three years. (e) Revenue Recognition Revenue consists of advertising and commissions from e-commerce transactions. Advertising revenues are derived principally from the sale of display advertising, classified advertising, and banner advertising on the www.Travelzoo.com website. Commissions are derived from online bookings of travel services via the www.Travelzoo.com website. Advertising revenues are recognized in the period in which the advertisement is displayed, provided that evidence of an arrangement exists, the fees are fixed and determinable, no significant obligations remain at the end of the period, and collection of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured. If advertising is displayed within one month, revenues are recognized at the end of the display period. If advertising is displayed over two or more months, revenues are recognized ratably over the period. To the extent that the minimum guaranteed impressions are not met during the contract period, the Companies defer recognition of the corresponding revenues until the guaranteed impressions are achieved. Fees for banner advertising are recognized based on the number of impressions displayed or clickthroughs delivered during the period. The Companies have outsourced part of their advertising sales and production activities to DoubleClick, Inc. (DoubleClick). Under the terms of the agreement with DoubleClick, the Companies receive a portion of the revenue received by DoubleClick from customers for the display of advertising on the www.Travelzoo.com website. The Companies record these revenues on a net basis. The gross revenue received by DoubleClick from advertising on the www.Travelzoo.com website was $95,170 and $137,159 for the period from May 21, 1998 (inception) to December 31, 1998 and the year ended December 31, 1999, and $86,687 and $202,868 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 1999 and 2000, respectively. The Companies' share of this income, which has been recorded as revenue, was $47,144, and $66,691 for the period from May 21, 1998 (inception) to December 31, 1998 and the year ended December 31, 1999, and $42,019 and $105,008 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 1999 and 2000, respectively. Commissions are recorded as the net amount received by the Companies and are recognized in the period in which the commissions earned are reported to the Companies by the e-commerce partner. F-8

TRAVELZOO.COM CORPORATION AND AFFILIATE Notes to Combined Financial Statements December 31, 1998 and 1999 (All information as of and for the nine months ended September 30, 1999 and 2000 is unaudited.) Revenues from advertising barter transactions are recognized in the period during which the advertisements are displayed on the www.Travelzoo.com website. Expenses from barter transactions are recognized in the period during which the advertisements are displayed on the barter partner's website. Barter transactions are recorded at the fair value of the advertising provided based on cash received by the Companies for transactions involving similar types of advertising during the six months preceding the transaction in accordance with Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) Issue No. 99-17, Accounting for Advertising Barter Transactions. The amounts included in advertising revenues and sales and marketing expenses for barter transactions were $-0- and $83,000 for the period from May 21, 1998 (inception) to December 31, 1998 and the year ended December 31, 1999, and $53,000 and $37,000 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 1999 and 2000, respectively. (f) Advertising Costs Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising costs (including barter advertising) amounted to $1,595 and $169,374 for the period from May 21, 1998 (inception) to December 31, 1998 and the year ended December 31, 1999, and, $60,812 and $907,520 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 1999 and 2000, respectively. (g) Income Taxes Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. (h) Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of The Companies account for long-lived assets in accordance with the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 121, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of. SFAS No. 121 requires that long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to future net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell. (i) Stock-Based Compensation As allowed under Statement of SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation, the Companies have elected to follow Accounting Principles Board Opinion (APB) No. 25, Accounting for Stock Issued to F-9

TRAVELZOO.COM CORPORATION AND AFFILIATE Notes to Combined Financial Statements December 31, 1998 and 1999 (All information as of and for the nine months ended September 30, 1999 and 2000 is unaudited.) Employees, and related interpretations in accounting for stock awards to employees. Deferred compensation for options granted to employees is determined as the difference between the deemed fair market value of the Companies' common stock and the exercise price on the date options were granted. Expense associated with stock-based compensation is amortized over the vesting period of the individual award. (j) Website Development Costs Prior to June 30, 2000, website development costs were expensed as incurred. The Companies adopted EITF Issue No. 00-02, Accounting for Website Development Costs, on June 30, 2000. The adoption of EITF Issue No. 00-02 did not have a significant impact on the combined financial statements. (k) Recent Accounting Pronouncements In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued SFAS No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities. SFAS No. 133, as amended by SFAS No. 137, Deferral of the Effective Date of FASB Statement No. 133, and SFAS No. 138, Accounting for Certain Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging Activities, an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 133, establishes accounting and reporting standards for derivative instruments and requires recognition of all derivatives as assets or liabilities in the statement of financial position and measurement of those instruments at fair value. SFAS No. 133 is effective for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2000. The Companies will adopt the standard no later than the first quarter of fiscal 2001, and are in the process of determining the impact that adoption will have on the combined financial statements. In December 1999, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 101, Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements, as amended by SAB Nos. 101A and 101B, which provides guidance on the recognition, presentation, and disclosure of revenue in financial statements filed with the SEC. SAB No. 101 outlines the basic criteria that must be met to recognize revenue and provides guidance for disclosure related to revenue recognition policies. The Companies will adopt SAB No. 101 in the fourth quarter of 2000, and have determined that adoption will not have a material impact on the combined financial statements.

On January 22, 2001, the Principal Stockholder contributed all the outstanding shares of common stock of Silicon Channels Corporation to Travelzoo Inc. in exchange for 8,129,273 shares of common stock of Travelzoo Inc. and options to acquire 2,158,349 shares of common stock of Travelzoo Inc. at $1.00 per share. Travelzoo Inc. was the surviving entity in the merger and the business which has been conducted by Silicon Channels Corporation is being continued by Travelzoo Inc. The transaction will be accounted for as a combination of entities under common control using "as-if pooling-of-interests" accounting. Under this method of accounting, the assets and liabilities of Silicon Channels Corporation and Travelzoo Inc. will be carried forward to the combined company at their historical costs. In addition, the financial statements of Silicon Channels Corporation and Travelzoo Inc. will be restated on a combined basis. During January 2001, the Board of Directors of Travelzoo.com Corporation proposed that Travelzoo.com Corporation be merged with Travelzoo Inc. whereby Travelzoo Inc. will be the surviving entity. Each share of Travelzoo.com Corporation outstanding at the consummation of the proposed merger will be exchanged for one share of Travelzoo Inc. The proposed merger will be consummated upon approval of the holders of a majority of the outstanding common stock of Travelzoo.com Corporation and the registration of the common stock of Travelzoo Inc. with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The proposed merger will be accounted for as a combination of entities under common control using "as-if pooling-of-interests" accounting. Under this method of accounting, the assets and liabilities of Travelzoo.com Corporation and Travelzoo Inc. will be carried forward to the combined company at their historical costs. In addition, the financial statements of Travelzoo.com Corporation and Travelzoo Inc. will be restated on a combined basis. (10) Pro Forma Net Income Per Share (Unaudited) Pro forma net income per share gives effect to the merger between Silicon Channels Corporation and Travelzoo Inc. which was consummated on January 22, 2001 and the proposed merger between Silicon Channels Corporation and Travelzoo Inc. described in Note 9 as if the mergers had been consummated on May 21, 1998 using the actual and proposed exchange ratios. Pro forma basic net income per share is computed using the weighted-average number of outstanding shares of common stock and shares vested under the board of directors' share program (see Note 5). Pro forma diluted net income per share is computed using the weighted-average number of outstanding shares of common stock described above and dilutive potential common stock from options to purchase common stock using the treasury method and unvested shares issuable under the directors' program. A reconciliation of the weighted-average basic number of shares and the weighted-average diluted number of shares used in the calculations follows: F-17

THIRD: The purpose of the Corporation is to engage in any lawful act or activity for which corporations may be organized under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware ("GCL"). FOURTH: A. Classes and Number of Shares. The total number of shares of stock which the Corporation shall have authority to issue is 40,000,000 shares of common stock of the par value of $0.01 each, amounting in the aggregate to Four Hundred Thousand Dollars ($400,000) ("Common Stock"), and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock of the par value of $0.01 each, amounting in the aggregate to $50,000 ("Preferred Stock"). B. Preemptive Rights. Except as may otherwise be provided by agreement among stockholders of the Corporation, no stockholder of any class of stock of the Corporation shall have any preemptive right to acquire any additional shares of stock of the Corporation of any class or series or any security convertible into, or exercisable or exchangeable for, such stock. C. Terms of Common Stock. The voting powers and relative, participating, optional and other special rights of the Common Stock, and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof, are as follows: 1. Voting Rights and Powers. Except as provided in the GCL, the holders of shares of the Common Stock shall vote together as a single class (with the holders of all series of Preferred Stock entitled to vote together with the holders of the shares of Common Stock) on all matters as to which such holders are entitled to vote. 2. Dividend Rights. No cash dividends may be declared and paid upon the Common Stock so long as any Preferred Stock is outstanding. Thereafter, cash dividends may be declared and paid upon the Common Stock in such amounts and at such times as the Board of Directors may determine. Funds otherwise legally available for the payment of dividends on the Common Stock shall not be restricted or reduced by reason of there being any excess of the aggregate preferential amount of any series of Preferred Stock outstanding over the aggregate par value thereof. 3. Liquidation Rights. In the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, after there shall have been paid or set apart for payment of holders of any outstanding shares of Preferred Stock the full preferential amounts to which they are entitled, the entire remaining assets and funds of the Corporation legally available for distribution, if any, to its shareholders shall be distributed ratably among the holders of the Common Stock in proportion to the shares of Common Stock then held by them. 4. Redemption. (a) Redemption at the Corporation's Election Upon Triggering Event. At any time or times on or after a Triggering Event (as defined below), the Corporation shall have the right in its sole discretion, to require that all, but not less than all, of the outstanding Common Stock held by a Triggering Holder (as defined below) (the "Redemption Shares") be redeemed ("Redemption Election") at a price per share of Common Stock equal to (A) if there is no public market for the Common Stock, the fair market value per share of the Common Stock as determined by the Board of Directors of the Corporation, or (B) if the Common Stock has an established public trading market, the market value per share of the Common Stock (the " Redemption Price"). The Corporation shall exercise its right to make a Redemption Election by providing each Triggering Holder written notice ("Notice of Redemption") by electronic mail, facsimile or overnight courier, after the occurrence of a Triggering Event. The Notice of Redemption shall indicate the anticipated date on which the Corporation shall redeem the Redemption Shares ("Redemption Date"). If the Corporation has exercised its right of Redemption Election and the conditions to such Redemption Election have been satisfied then all such Redemption Shares outstanding shall be redeemed as of the Redemption Date by payment by or on behalf of the Corporation to each Triggering Holder of Redemption Shares of the Redemption Price. If the Corporation fails to pay the full Redemption Price with respect to any Redemption Shares on the Redemption Date, the Redemption Election shall be null and void with respect to such Redemption Shares and the Holder of such Redemption Shares shall be entitled to all the rights of a Holder of outstanding Common Stock set forth in this Certificate of Incorporation.

EIGHTH: A. Every person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is involved in any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that such person or a person of whom such person is a legal representative is or was a director or officer of the Corporation or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation or for its benefit as a director, officer, employee or agent of any other corporation, or as the representative of the Corporation in a partnership, joint venture, trust or other entity, shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Corporation to the fullest extent legally permissible under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, as amended from time to time, against all expenses, liabilities and losses (including attorneys' fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid or to be paid in settlement) reasonably paid or incurred by such person in connection therewith. Such right of indemnification shall be a contract right that may be enforced in any manner desired by such person. Such right of indemnification shall include the right to be paid by the Corporation the expenses incurred in defending any such action, suit or proceeding in advance of its final disposition upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such person to repay such amount if ultimately it should be determined that such person is not entitled to be indemnified by the Corporation under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. Such right of indemnification shall not be exclusive of any other right which such directors, officers or representatives may have or hereafter acquire and, without limiting the generality of such statement, they shall be entitled to their respective rights of indemnification under any By-law, agreement, vote of stockholders, provision of law or otherwise, as well as their rights under this Article. B. The Board of Directors may adopt By-laws from time to time with respect to indemnification to provide at all times the fullest indemnification permitted by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, as amended from time to time, and may cause the Corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation or for its benefit as a director, officer, employee or agent of any other corporation, or as the representative of the Corporation in a partnership, joint venture, trust or other entity, against any expense, liability or loss asserted against or incurred by any such person in any such capacity or arising out of any such status, whether or not the Corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such expense, liability or loss.

TENTH: The Corporation reserves the right to amend, alter, change or repeal any provision contained in this Certificate of Incorporation in the manner now or hereafter prescribed by statute, and all rights conferred upon stockholders, directors and officers herein are granted subject to this reservation.

If the adjournment is for more than thirty days, or if after the adjournment a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, a notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting. Section 1.6. Quorum. At each meeting of stockholders, except where otherwise provided by law or the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws, the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of each class of stock entitled to vote at the meeting, present in person or represented by proxy, shall constitute a quorum. For purposes of the foregoing, two or more classes or series of stock shall be considered a single class if the holders thereof are entitled to vote together as a single class at the meeting. In the absence of a quorum, the stockholders so present may, by majority vote, adjourn the meeting from time to time in the manner provided by Section 1.5 of these by-laws until a quorum shall attend. Shares of its own capital stock belonging on the record date for the meeting to the Corporation or to another corporation, if a majority of the shares entitled to vote in the election of directors of such other corporation is held, directly or indirectly, by the Corporation, shall neither be entitled to vote nor be counted for quorum purposes; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not limit the right of the Corporation to vote stock, including but not limited to its own stock, held by it in a fiduciary capacity. Section 1.7. Organization. Meetings of stockholders shall be presided over by the Chairman of the Board, if any, or in his absence by the Vice Chairman of the Board, if any, or in his absence by the President, or in his absence by a Vice President, or in the absence of the foregoing persons by a chairman designated by the Board of Directors, or in the absence of such designation by a chairman chosen at the meeting. The Secretary shall act as secretary of the meeting, but in his absence the chairman of the meeting may appoint any person to act as secretary of the meeting. Section 1.8. Voting; Proxies. Unless otherwise provided in the certificate of incorporation, each stockholder entitled to vote at any meeting of stockholders shall be entitled to one vote for each share of stock held by him which has voting power upon the matter in question. Each stockholder entitled to vote at a meeting of stockholders or to express consent or dissent to corporate action in writing without a meeting may authorize another person or

persons to act for him by proxy, but no such proxy shall be voted or acted upon after three years from its date, unless the proxy provides for a longer period. A duly executed proxy shall be irrevocable if it states that it is irrevocable and if, and only as long as, it is coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable power. A stockholder may revoke any proxy which is not irrevocable by attending the meeting and voting in person or by filing an instrument in writing revoking the proxy or another duly executed proxy bearing a later date with the Secretary of the Corporation. Voting at meetings of stockholders need not be by written ballot and need not be conducted by inspectors unless the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of all classes of stock entitled to vote thereon present in person or by proxy at such meeting shall so determine. At all meetings of stockholders for the election of directors, a plurality of the votes cast shall be sufficient to elect. All other elections and questions shall, unless otherwise provided by law or by the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws, be decided by the vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of all classes of stock entitled to vote thereon present in person or by proxy at the meeting, provided that (except as otherwise required by law or by the certificate of incorporation) the Board of Directors may require a larger vote upon any election or question. Section 1.9. Fixing Date for Determination of Stockholders of Record. In order that the Corporation may determine the stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of stockholders or any adjournment thereof, or to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend or other distribution or allotment of any rights, or entitled to exercise any rights in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the Board of Directors may fix, in advance, a record date, which shall not be more than sixty nor less than ten days before the date of such meeting, nor more than sixty days prior to any other action. If no record date is fixed: (1) the record date for determining stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall be at the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which notice is given, or, if notice is waived, at the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which the meeting is held; (2) the record date for determining stockholders entitled to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, when no prior action by the Board is necessary, shall be the day on which the first written consent is expressed; and (3) the record date for determining stockholders for any other purpose shall be at the close of business on the day on which the Board adopts the resolution relating thereto. A determination of stockholders of record entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall apply to any adjournment of the meeting; provided, however, that the Board may fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting. Section 1.10. List of Stockholders Entitled to Vote. The Secretary shall prepare and make, at least ten days before every meeting of stockholders, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting, arranged in alphabetical order, and showing the address of each stockholder and the number of shares registered in the name of each stockholder. Nothing contained in this Section 1.10 shall require the Corporation to include electronic mail addresses or other electronic contact information on such list. Such list shall be open to the examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting, during ordinary business hours, for a period of at least ten days prior to the meeting, either (i) on a reasonably accessible electronic network, which the information required to gain access to such list is provided in the notice of the meeting, or (ii) at the principal place of business of the corporation. If the meeting is to be held at a place, then the list shall be produced and kept at the time and place of the meeting during the whole time thereof, and may be inspected by any stockholder who is present. If the meeting is to be held solely by means of remote communication, then the list shall also be open to the examination of any stockholder during the whole time of the meeting on a reasonably accessible electronic network, and the information required to access such list shall be provided with the notice of the meeting. Section 1.11. Consent of Stockholders in Lieu of Meeting. Unless otherwise provided in the certificate of incorporation, any action required by law to be taken at any annual or special meeting of stockholders of the Corporation, or any action which may be taken at any annual or special meeting of such stockholders, may be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote, if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, shall be signed by the holders of outstanding stock having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted. Prompt notice of the taking of the corporate action without a meeting by less than unanimous written consent shall be given to those stockholders who have not consented in writing. ARTICLE II Board of Directors Section 2.1. Powers; Number; Qualifications. The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by the Board of Directors, except as may be otherwise provided by law or in the certificate of incorporation. The Board shall consist of one or more members, the number thereof to be determined from time to time by the Board. Directors need not be stockholders. Section 2.2. Election; Term of Office; Resignation; Removal; Vacancies. Each director shall hold office until the annual meeting of stockholders next succeeding his election and until his successor is elected and qualified or until his earlier resignation or removal. Any director may resign at any time upon written notice to the Board of Directors or to the President or the Secretary of the Corporation. Such resignation shall take effect at the time C-2

specified therein, and unless otherwise specified therein no acceptance of such resignation shall be necessary to make it effective. Unless otherwise provided in the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws, vacancies and newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the authorized number of directors or from any other cause may be filled by a majority of the directors then in office, although less than a quorum, or by the sole remaining director. Section 2.3. Regular Meetings. Regular meetings of the Board of Directors may be held at such places within or without the State of Delaware and at such times as the Board may from time to time determine, and if so determined, notice thereof need not be given. Section 2.4. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the Board of Directors may be held at any time or place within or without the State of Delaware whenever called by the Chairman of the Board, if any, by the Vice Chairman of the Board, if any, by the President or by any two directors. Reasonable notice thereof shall be given by the person or persons calling the meeting. Section 2.5. Telephonic Meetings Permitted. Unless otherwise restricted by the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws, members of the Board of Directors, or any committee designated by the Board, may participate in a meeting of the Board or of such committee, as the case may be, by means of conference telephone or similar communications equipment by means of which all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other, and participation in a meeting pursuant to this by-law shall constitute presence in person at such meeting. Section 2.6. Quorum; Vote Required for Action. At all meetings of the Board of Directors one-third of the entire Board shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. The vote of a majority of the directors present at a meeting at which a quorum is present shall be the act of the Board unless the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws shall require a vote of a greater number. In case at any meeting of the Board a quorum shall not be present, the members of the Board present may adjourn the meeting from time to time until a quorum shall attend. Section 2.7. Organization. Meetings of the Board of Directors shall be presided over by the Chairman of the Board, if any, or in his absence by the Vice Chairman of the Board, if any, or in his absence by the President, or in their absence by a chairman chosen at the meeting. The Secretary shall act as secretary of the meeting, but in his absence the chairman of the meeting may appoint any person to act as secretary of the meeting. Section 2.8. Informal Action by Directors. Unless otherwise restricted by the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws, any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors, or of any committee thereof, may be taken without a meeting if all members of the Board or of such committee, as the case may be, consent thereto in writing, and the writing or writings are filed with the minutes of proceedings of the Board or committee. ARTICLE III Committees Section 3.1. Committees. The Board of Directors may designate one or more committees, each committee to consist of one or more of the directors of the Corporation. The Board may designate one or more directors as alternate members of any committee, who may replace any absent or disqualified member at any meeting of the committee. The by-laws may provide that in the absence or disqualification of a member of a committee, the member or members present at any meeting and not disqualified from voting, whether or not such member or members constitute a quorum, may unanimously appoint another member of the board of directors to act at the meeting in the place of any such absent or disqualified member. Any such committee, to the extent provided in the resolution of the board of directors, or in the bylaws of the corporation, shall have and may exercise all the powers and authority of the Board of Directors in the management of the business and affairs of the Corporation, and may authorize the seal of the Corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it; but no such committee shall have the power or authority in reference to the following matter: (i) approving or adopting, or recommending to the stockholders, any action or matter expressly required by these by-laws to be submitted to stockholders for approval or (ii) adopting, amending or repealing any by-law of the Corporation. Section 3.2. Committee Rules. Unless the Board of Directors otherwise provides, each committee designated by the Board may make, alter and repeal rules for the conduct of its business. In the absence of a provision by the Board or a provision in the rules of such committee to the contrary, a majority of the entire authorized number of members of such committee shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, the vote of a majority of the members present at a meeting at the time of such vote if a quorum is then present shall be the act of such committee, and in other respects each committee shall conduct its business in the same manner as the Board conducts its business pursuant to Article II of these by-laws. C-3

ARTICLE IV Officers Section 4.1. Officers; Election; Qualification; Term of Office; Resignation; Removal; Vacancies. As soon as practicable after the annual meeting of stockholders in each year, the Board of Directors shall elect a President and a Secretary, and it may, if it so determines, elect from among its members a Chairman of the Board and a Vice Chairman of the Board. The Board may also elect one or more Vice Presidents, one or more Assistant Vice Presidents, one or more Assistant Secretaries, a Treasurer and one or more Assistant Treasurers and may give any of them such further designations or alternate titles as it considers desirable. Each such officer shall hold office until the first meeting of the Board after the annual meeting of stockholders next succeeding his election, and until his successor is elected and qualified or until his earlier resignation or removal. Any officer may resign at any time upon written notice to the Board or to the President or the Secretary of the Corporation. Such resignation shall take effect at the time specified therein, and unless otherwise specified therein no acceptance of such resignation shall be necessary to make it effective. The Board may remove any officer with or without cause at any time. Any such removal shall be without prejudice to the contractual rights of such officer, if any, with the Corporation, but the election or appointment of an officer shall not of itself create contractual rights. Any number of offices may be held by the same person. Any vacancy occurring in any office of the Corporation by death, resignation, removal or otherwise may be filled for the unexpired portion of the term by the Board at any regular or special meeting. Section 4.2. Powers and Duties of Executive Officers. The officers of the Corporation shall have such powers and duties in the management of the Corporation as may be prescribed by the Board of Directors and, to the extent not so provided, as generally pertain to their respective offices, subject to the control of the Board. The Board may require any officer, agent or employee to give security for the faithful performance of his duties. ARTICLE V Stock Section 5.1. Certificates. Every holder of stock in the Corporation shall be entitled to have a certificate signed by or in the name of the Corporation by the Chairman or Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, if any or the President or a Vice President, and by the Treasurer or an Assistant Treasurer, or the Secretary or an Assistant Secretary, of the Corporation, certifying the number of shares owned by him in the Corporation. If such certificate is manually signed by one officer or manually countersigned by a transfer agent or by a registrar, any other signature on the certificate may be a facsimile. In case any officer, transfer agent or registrar who has signed or whose facsimile signature has been placed upon a certificate shall have ceased to be such officer, transfer agent or registrar before such certificate is issued, it may be issued by the Corporation with the same effect as if he were such officer, transfer agent or registrar at the date of issue. Section 5.2. Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Stock Certificates; Issuance of New Certificates. The Corporation may issue a new certificate of stock in the place of any certificate theretofore issued by it, alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed, and the Corporation may require the owner of the lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, or his legal representative, to give the Corporation a bond sufficient to indemnify it against any claim that may be made against it on account of the alleged loss, theft or destruction of any such certificate or the issuance of such new certificate. ARTICLE VI Miscellaneous Section 6.1. Fiscal Year. The fiscal year of the Corporation shall be determined by the Board of Directors. Section 6.2. Seal. The Corporation may have a corporate seal which shall have the name of the Corporation inscribed thereon and shall be in such form as may be approved from time to time by the Board of Directors. The corporate seal may be used by causing it or a facsimile thereof to be impressed or affixed or in any other manner reproduced. Section 6.3. Waiver of Notice of Meetings of Stockholders, Directors and Committees. Whenever notice is required to be given by law or under any provision of the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws, a written waiver thereof, signed by the person entitled to notice, whether before or after the time stated therein, shall be deemed equivalent to notice. Attendance of a person at a meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice of such meeting, except when the person attends a meeting for the express purpose of objecting, at the beginning of the meeting, to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened. Neither the business to be transacted at, nor the purpose of, any regular or special meeting of the stockholders, directors, or members of a committee of directors need be specified in any written waiver of notice unless so required by the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws. Section 6.4. Indemnification of Directors, Officers and Employees. The Corporation shall have power to indemnify to the full extent authorized by law any person made or threatened to be made a party to any action, suit or proceeding, whether criminal, civil, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that he, his testator or intestate is or was a director, officer or C-4

employee of the Corporation or any predecessor of the Corporation or serves or served any other enterprise as a director, officer or employee at the request of the Corporation or any predecessor of the Corporation. Section 6.5. Interested Directors; Quorum. No contract or transaction between the Corporation and one or more of its directors or officers, or between the Corporation and any other corporation, partnership, association or other organization in which one or more of its directors or officers are directors or officers, or have a financial interest, shall be void or voidable solely for this reason, or solely because the director or officer is present at or participates in the meeting of the Board of Directors or committee thereof which authorizes the contract or transaction, or solely because his or their votes are counted for such purpose, if: (1) the material facts as to his relationship or interest and as to the contract or transaction are disclosed or are known to the Board or the committee, and the Board or committee in good faith authorizes the contract or transaction by the affirmative votes of a majority of the disinterested directors, even though the disinterested directors be less than a quorum; or (2) the material facts as to his relationship or interest and as to the contract or transaction are disclosed or are known to the stockholders entitled to vote thereon, and the contract or transaction is specifically approved in good faith by vote of the stockholders; or (3) the contract or transaction is fair as to the Corporation as of the time it is authorized, approved or ratified, by the Board, a committee thereof or the stockholders. Common or interested directors may be counted in determining the presence of a quorum at a meeting of the Board or of a committee which authorizes the contract or transaction. Section 6.6. Form of Records. Any records maintained by the Corporation in the regular course of its business, including its stock ledger, books of account and minute books, may be kept on, or be in the form of, punch cards, magnetic tape, photographs, microphotographs or any other information storage device, provided that the records so kept can be converted into clearly legible form within a reasonable time. The Corporation shall so convert any records so kept upon the request of any person entitled to inspect the same. Section 6.7. Amendment of By-Laws. These by-laws may be altered or repealed, and new by-laws made, by the Board of Directors, but the stockholders may make additional by-laws and may alter or repeal any by-law whether or not adopted by them.

Annex E BAHAMAS INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COMPANIES ACT, 1989 (as amended, 1998) Rights of dissenters. 81.(1) A member of a company incorporated under this Act shall be entitled to payment of the fair value of his shares upon dissenting from - (a) a merger, if the company is a constituent company, unless the company is the surviving company and the member continues to hold the same or similar shares; (b) a consolidation, if the company is a constituent company; (c) any sale, transfer, lease, exchange or other disposition of more than 50 per cent of the assets or business of the company, if not made in the usual or regular course of the business carried on by the company, but not including - (i) a disposition pursuant to an order of the court, having jurisdiction in the matter, (ii) a disposition for money on terms requiring all or substantially all net proceeds to be distributed to the members in accordance with their respective interests within one year after the date of disposition, or (iii) a transfer pursuant to the power described in section 9(2); (d) a redemption of his shares by the company pursuant to section 79; and (e) an arrangement, if permitted by the court. (2) A member who desires to exercise his entitlement under subsection (1) shall give to the company, before the meeting of members at which the action is submitted to a vote, or at the meeting but before the vote, written objection to the action; but an objection is not required from a member to whom the company did not give notice of the meeting in accordance with this Act or where the proposed action is authorized by written consent of members without a meeting. (3) An objection under subsection (2) shall include a statement that the member proposes to demand payment for his shares if the action is taken. (4) Within 20 days immediately following the date on which the vote of members authorizing the action is taken, or the date on which written consent of members without a meeting is obtained, the company shall give written notice of the authorization or consent to each member who gave written objection or from whom written objection was not required, except those members who voted for, or consented to in writing, the proposed action. (5) A member to whom the company was required to give notice who elects to dissent shall, within 20 days immediately following the date on which the notice referred to in subsection (4) is given, give to the company a written notice of his decision to elect to dissent, stating - (a) his name and address; (b) the number and classes or series of shares in respect of which he dissents; and (c) a demand for payment of the fair value of his shares; and a member who elects to dissent from a merger under section 74 shall give to the company a written notice of his decision to elect to dissent within 20 days immediately following the date on which the copy of the plan of merger or an outline thereof is given to him in accordance with section 74. (6) A member who dissents shall do so in respect of all shares that he holds in the company. (7) Upon the giving of a notice of election to dissent, the member to whom the notice relates ceases to have any of the rights of a member except the right to be paid the fair value of his shares. (8) Within 7 days immediately following the date of the expiration of the period within which members may give their notices of election to dissent, or within 7 days immediately following the date on which the proposed action is put into effect, whichever is later, the company or, in the case of a merger or consolidation, the surviving company or the consolidated company, shall make a written offer to each dissenting member to purchase his shares at a specified price that the company determines to be their fair value; and if, within 30 days immediately following the date on which the offer is made, the company making the offer and the dissenting member agree upon the price to be paid for his

shares, the company shall pay to the member the amount in money upon the surrender of the certificates representing his shares. (9) If the company and a dissenting member fail within the period of 30 days referred to in subsection (8) to agree on the price to be paid for the shares owned by the member, within 20 days immediately following the date on which the period of 30 days expires, the following shall apply - (a) the company and the dissenting member shall each designate an appraiser; (b) the 2 designated appraisers together shall designate a third appraiser; (c) the 3 appraisers shall fix the fair value of the shares owned by the dissenting member as of the close of business on the day prior to the date on which the vote of members authorizing the action was taken or the date on which written consent of members without a meeting was obtained, excluding any appreciation or depreciation directly or indirectly induced by the action or its proposal, and that value is binding on the company and the dissenting member for all purposes; and (d) the company shall pay to the member the amount in money upon the surrender by him of the certificates representing his shares. (10) Shares acquired by the company pursuant to subsection (8) or (9) shall be canceled but if the shares are shares of a surviving company, they shall be available for re-issue. (11) The enforcement by a member of his entitlement under this section excludes the enforcement by the member of a right to which he might otherwise be entitled by virtue of his holding shares, except that this section does not exclude the right of the member to institute proceedings to obtain relief on the ground that the action is illegal.

PART II INFORMATION NOT REQUIRED IN PROSPECTUS Item 20. Indemnification of Directors and officers. The Delaware General Corporation Law permits the indemnification by a Delaware corporation of its directors, officers, employees and other agents against expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement in connection with specified actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than derivative actions which are by or in the right of the corporation) if they acted in good faith and in a manner they reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful. A similar standard of care is applicable in the case of derivative actions, except that indemnification only extends to expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with defense or settlement of such an action and requires court approval before there can be any indemnification where the person seeking indemnification has been found liable to the corporation. As permitted by Delaware law, the Registrant's certificate of incorporation provides that no director of the Registrant will be personally liable to the Registrant or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (a) for any breach of duty of loyalty to the Registrant or to its stockholders, (b) for acts or omissions not in good faith or that involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (c) under Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, or (d) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. The Registrant's Restated certificate of incorporation further provides that the Registrant must indemnify its directors and executive officers and may indemnify its other officers and employees and agents to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law. The Registrant believes that indemnification under its certificate of incorporation covers negligence and gross negligence on the part of indemnified parties. The Registrant has entered into indemnification agreements with each of its directors and officers. These agreements, among other things, require the Registrant to indemnify such directors and officers for certain expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and settlement amounts incurred by any such person in any action or proceeding, including any action by or in the right of the Registrant, arising out of such person's services as a director or officer of the Registrant, any subsidiary of the Registrant or any other company or enterprise to which the person provides services at the request of the Registrant. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers or persons controlling the Registrant pursuant to such provisions, the Registrant has been informed that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in such Act and is therefore unenforceable. Item 21. Exhibits and Financial Statements. II-1

                              EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT


         This  Employment  Agreement  is  entered  into as of April 1, 2000 (the
"Effective  Date"),  by and between  Travelzoo.com  Sales,  Inc.,  a  California
corporation  (the  "Company"),  with  principal  corporate  offices at 800 W. El
Camino Real, Suite 180, Mountain View, CA 94040, and Ralph Bartel,  Ph.D., whose
address is currently  800 High School Way,  Apt.  307,  Mountain  View, CA 94041
("Employee").  The Company and Employee are  collectively  referred to herein as
"the Parties."

         WHEREAS,  the Company  desires to retain  Employee  as Chief  Executive
Officer,  and Employee  desires to perform such service for the Company,  on the
terms and conditions as set forth herein;

         NOW,  THEREFORE,  in consideration of the promises and mutual covenants
herein  contained,  and other good and valuable  consideration,  the receipt and
sufficiency  of which is  hereby  acknowledged,  it is  mutually  agreed  by the
parties as follows:

         1.  Duties and Scope of Employment.

                  (a) Position.  Employee  shall be employed as Chief  Executive
         Officer.

                  (b) Duties.  During the term of Employee's employment with the
         Company,  Employee  shall devote her full time,  skill and attention to
         her  duties  and   responsibilities,   which   Employee  shall  perform
         faithfully, diligently and competently, and Employee shall use her best
         efforts to further the business of the Company.  During the term of the
         Agreement,  Employee  agrees  not  to  actively  engage  in  any  other
         employment,  occupation  or  consulting  activity  for  any  direct  or
         indirect  remuneration  without the prior approval of the Board, except
         that this provision shall not be interpreted to prohibit  Employee from
         involvement in any charitable or community  activity/organization  that
         he is currently involved in and that does not materially interfere with
         her ability to perform her duties under this Agreement.  Employee shall
         be  permitted,  to the extent such  activities  do not  materially  and
         adversely  affect the ability of  Employee to fully  perform her duties
         and  responsibilities  hereunder,  to (i) manage  Employee's  personal,
         financial and legal affairs,  (ii) serve on civic or charitable  boards
         or  committees,  and (iii) with the  consent of the Board of  Directors
         (which consent shall not be unreasonably  withheld),  serve as a member
         of the board of directors of any noncompeting business.

         2.  Nature of Employment.  Employee  agrees not to leave or discontinue
her  employment  with the  Company  during  the first  three  (3)  months of her
employment.  Similarly,  the Company agrees not to terminate Employee during the
first  three (3)  months of  employment  with the  Company,  except for cause as
defined in paragraph 2(b). After the three month period has ended, Employee will
become an "at-will" employee which means that the employment relationship may be
terminated  at any time,  with or  without  cause,  at the  option of either the
Company or Employee, upon two weeks written notice to the other party.

                  (a)  Termination  by Company  without  Cause.  If  Employee is
terminated by the Company without Cause (as defined in paragraph 2(b)) after the
initial  three  months of  employment,  Employee  shall  receive  her salary and
benefits earned through the date of termination.

                  (b)  Termination  for Cause.  If  Employee is  terminated  for
"Cause" as defined herein at any time, Employee will receive only payment of her
salary and  benefits  through  the date of  termination.  For  purposes  of this
Agreement,  "Cause" is  defined  as (i) gross  misconduct  by  Employee  that is
materially injurious to the Company's business;  (ii) the commission by Employee
of a felony;  or (3) the willful  failure or refusal of the Employee,  following
receipt of an explicit  directive from the Company,  to comply with the material
terms of this Agreement.

         3.   Compensation and Fringe Benefits

                  (a) Base  Salary.  Employee  will receive a base salary at the
annualized  rate  of  $192,000.00  (the  "Base  Salary"),  which  shall  be paid
periodically in accordance with normal Company payroll  practices and subject to
the usual and applicable required  withholding.  Employee understands and agrees
that neither her job performance nor promotions,  commendations,  bonuses or the
like  from  the  Company  give  rise to or in any way  serve  as the  basis  for
modification,  amendment,  or extension,  by implication  or otherwise,  of this
Agreement.

                  (b) Productivity  Bonus Plan. In  addition to the Base Salary,
Employee shall participate in the company's  Productivity  Bonus Plan. A copy of
the bonus plan is attached.


(c) Vacation and Holiday Pay. Employee shall receive two weeks of paid vacation per year, which accrues over the course of the year. In addition, the Company provides eight (8) paid holidays each year, along with two (2) "floating holidays" which can be used by Employee at any time. (d) Health Insurance. The Company shall pay Employee up to $600.00 per month (upon submission of receipts or other proof of payment) as reimbursement for the costs of Employee's health insurance. (e) Other Benefits. Employee will be entitled to participate in or receive such benefits under the Company's employee benefit plans and policies and such other benefits which may be made available as in effect from time to time and as are provided to similarly situated employees of the Company, subject in each case to the generally applicable terms and conditions of the plans and policies in question. 4. Expenses. The Company will pay or reimburse Employee for reasonable travel, entertainment or other expenses incurred by Employee in the furtherance of or in connection with the performance of Employee's duties hereunder in accordance with the Company's established policies. 5. Certain Covenants. (a) Intellectual Property Rights. (i) Employee agrees that the Company will be the sole owner of any and all of Employee's "Discoveries" and "Work Product," hereinafter defined, made during the term of her employment with the Company, whether pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise. For purposes of this Agreement, "Discoveries" means all inventions, discoveries, improvements, and copyrightable works (including, without limitation, any information relating to the Company's software products, source code, know-how, processes, designs, algorithms, computer programs and routines, formulae, techniques, developments or experimental work, work-in-progress, or business trade secrets) made or conceived or reduced to practice by Employee during the term of her employment by the Company, whether or not potentially patentable or copyrightable in the United States or elsewhere. For purposes of this Agreement, "Work Product" means any and all work product relating to Discoveries. (ii) Employee shall promptly disclose to the Company all Discoveries and Work Product. All such disclosures must include complete and accurate copies of all source code, object code or machine-readable copies, documentation, work notes, flow-charts, diagrams, test data, reports, samples, and other tangible evidence or results (collectively, "Tangible Embodiments") of such Discoveries or Work Product. All Tangible Embodiments of any Discoveries or Work Project will be deemed to have been assigned to the Company as a result of the act of expressing any Discovery or Work Product therein. (iii) Employee hereby assigns and agrees to assign to the Company all of her interest in any country in any and all Discoveries and Work Product, whether such interest arises under patent law, copyright law, trade-secret law, semiconductor chip protection law, or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, Employee hereby authorizes the Company to make any desired changes to any part of any Discovery or Work Product, to combine it with other materials in any manner desired, and to withhold Employee's identity in connection with any distribution or use thereof alone or in combination with other materials. This assignment and assignment obligation applies to all Discoveries and Work Product arising during Employee's employment with the Company (or its predecessors), whether pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise. Employee's agreement to assign to the Company any of her rights as set forth in this Section 5(a)(iii) shall not apply to any invention that qualifies fully under the provisions of California Labor Code Section 2870, where no equipment, supplies, facility or trade secret information of the Company was used and that was developed entirely upon Employee's own time, and (i) that does not relate to Company business or to the Company's actual or anticipated research or development, or (ii) that does not result from any work performed by Employee for the Company. 2

(iv) At the request of the Company, Employee shall promptly and without additional compensation execute any and all patent applications, copyright registration applications, waivers of moral rights, assignments, or other instruments that the Company deems necessary or appropriate to apply for or obtain Letters Patent of the United States or any foreign country, copyright registrations or otherwise to protect the Company's interest in such Discovery and Work Product, the expenses for which will be borne by the Company. Employee hereby irrevocably designates and appoints the Company and its duly authorized officers and agents as her agents and attorneys-in-fact to, if the Company is unable for any reason to secure Employee's signature to any lawful and necessary document required or appropriate to apply for or execute any patent application, copyright registration application, waiver of moral rights, or other similar document with respect to any Discovery and Work Product (including, without limitation, renewals, extensions, continuations, divisions, or continuations in part), (i) act for and in her behalf, (ii) execute and file any such document, and (iii) do all other lawfully permitted acts to further the prosecution of the same legal force and effect as if executed by him; this designation and appointment constitutes an irrevocable power of attorney coupled with an interest. (v) To the extent that any Discovery or Work Product constitutes copyrightable or similar subject matter that is eligible to be treated as a "work made for hire" or as having similar status in the United States or elsewhere, it will be so deemed. This provision does not alter or limit Employee's other obligations to assign intellectual property rights under this Agreement. (vi) The obligations of Employee set forth in this Section 5 (including, without limitation, the assignment obligations) will continue beyond the termination of Employee's employment with respect to Discoveries and Work Product conceived or made by Employee alone or in concert with others during Employee's employment with the Company, whether pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise. Those obligations will be binding upon Employee, her assignees permitted under this Agreement, executors, administrators, and other representatives. (b) Exposure to Proprietary Information. (i) As used in this Agreement, "Proprietary Information" means all information of a business or technical nature that relates to the Company including, without limitation, all information about software products whether currently released or in development, all inventions, discoveries, improvements, copyrightable work, source code, know-how, processes, designs, algorithms, computer programs and routines, formulae and techniques, and any information regarding the business of any customer or supplier of the Company or any other information that the Company is required to keep confidential. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the term "Proprietary Information" does not include information that is or becomes publicly available through no fault of Employee, or information that Employee learned prior to the Effective Date. (ii) In recognition of the special nature of her employment under this Agreement, including her special access to the Proprietary Information, and in consideration of her employment pursuant to this Agreement, Employee agrees to the covenants and restrictions set forth in Section 5 of this Agreement. (c) Use of Proprietary Information; Restrictive Covenants. (i) Employee acknowledges that the Proprietary Information constitutes a protectible business interest of the Company, and covenants and agrees that during the term of her employment, whether under this Agreement or otherwise, and after the termination of such employment, he will not, directly or indirectly, disclose, furnish, make available or utilize any of the Proprietary Information, other than in the proper performance of her duties for the Company. 3

(ii) Employee will not, during the term of this Agreement or, solely with respect to clauses 2 and 3 of this subparagraph (ii), for a period of one year thereafter (the "Restricted Period"), anywhere within the United States (the "Restricted Territory"), directly or indirectly (whether as an owner, partner, shareholder, agent, officer, director, employee, independent contractor, consultant, or otherwise): 1. perform services for, or engage in, any business that develops or sells products or services which are competitive with any products or services sold or developed by the Company for which Employee has provided any assistance in planning, development, marketing, training, support, or maintenance during the period of Employee's employment with the Company (the "Products"); 2. except on behalf of the Company, solicit any person or entity who is, or was at any time during the twelve-month period immediately prior to the termination of Employee's employment with the Company, a customer of the Company for the sale of the Products or any product or service of a type then sold by the Company for which Employee provided any assistance in planning, development, marketing, training, support, or maintenance; or 3. solicit for employment any person who is, or was at any time during the twelve-month period immediately prior to the termination of Employee's employment with the Company, an employee of the Company. (d) Scope/Severability. The Parties acknowledge that the business of the Company is and will be national and international in scope and thus the covenants in this Section 5 would be particularly ineffective if the covenants were to be limited to a particular geographic area of the United States. If any court of competent jurisdiction at any time deems the Restricted Period unreasonably lengthy, or the Restricted Territory unreasonably extensive, or any of the covenants set forth in this Section 5 not fully enforceable, the other provisions of this Section 5, and this Agreement in general, will nevertheless stand and to the full extent consistent with law continue in full force and effect, and it is the intention and desire of the parties that the court treat any provisions of this Agreement which are not fully enforceable as having been modified to the extent deemed necessary by the court to render them reasonable and enforceable and that the court enforce them to such extent (for example, that the Restricted Period be deemed to be the longest period permissible by law, but not in excess of the length provided for in Section 5(c), and the Restricted Territory be deemed to comprise the largest territory permissible by law under the circumstances). (e) Return of Company Materials upon Termination. Employee acknowledges that all records, documents, and Tangible Embodiments containing or of Proprietary Information prepared by Employee or coming into her possession by virtue of her employment by the Company are and will remain the property of the Company. Upon termination of her employment with the Company, Employee shall immediately return to the Company all such items in her possession and all copies of such items. 6. Equitable Remedies. (a) Employee acknowledges and agrees that the agreements and covenants set forth in Sections 5(a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) are reasonable and necessary for the protection of the Company's business interests, that irreparable injury will result to the Company if Employee breaches any of the terms of said covenants, and that in the event of Employee's actual or threatened breach of any such covenants, the Company will have no adequate remedy at law. Employee accordingly agrees that, in the event of any actual or threatened breach by him of any of said covenants, the Company will be entitled to immediate injunctive and other equitable relief, without bond and without the necessity of showing actual monetary damages. Nothing in this Section 6 will be construed as prohibiting the Company from pursuing any other remedies available to it for such breach or threatened breach, including the recovery of any damages that it is able to prove. 4

(b) Each of the covenants in Sections 5(a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) will be construed as independent of any other covenants or other provisions of this Agreement. (c) In the event of any judicial determination that any of the covenants in Sections 5(a), (b), (c), (d), and (e) are not fully enforceable, it is the intention and desire of the parties that the court treat said covenants as having been modified to the extent deemed necessary by the court to render them reasonable and enforceable, and that the court enforce them to such extent. 7. Assignment. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of (a) the heirs, executors and legal representatives of Employee upon Employee's death and (b) any successor of the Company. Any such successor of the Company shall be deemed substituted for the Company under the terms of this Agreement for all purposes. As used herein, "successor" shall include any person, firm, corporation or other business entity which at any time, whether by purchase, merger or otherwise, directly or indirectly, acquires all or substantially all of the assets or business of the Company. None of the rights of Employee to receive any form of compensation payable pursuant to this Agreement shall be assignable or transferable except through a testamentary disposition or by the laws of descent. Any attempted assignment, transfer, conveyance or other disposition (other than as aforesaid) of any interest in the rights of Employee to receive any form of compensation hereunder shall be null and void. 8. Notices. All notices, requests, demands and other communications called for hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed given if delivered personally, one (1) day after mailing via Federal Express overnight or a similar overnight delivery service, or three (3) days after being mailed by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, prepaid and addressed to the parties or their successors in interest at the addresses listed above, or at such other addresses as the parties may designate by written notice in the manner aforesaid. 9. Severability. In the event that any provision hereof becomes or is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, unenforceable or void, this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect without said provision. 10. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, and the Stock Option Agreement, represent the entire agreement and understanding between the Company and Employee concerning Employee's employment relationship with the Company, and supersede in their entirety any and all prior agreements and understandings concerning Employee's employment relationship with the Company. 11. Resolution of Disputes Regarding Employment. (a) The Parties agree to submit any dispute or controversy arising out of, relating to, or in connection with this Agreement, or the interpretation, validity, construction, performance, breach, or termination thereof, to mediation. The Parties shall mutually select the mediator and shall equally pay for the costs of the mediator. (a) If and only if a mediation is unsuccessful, and the dispute or controversy is not resolved within 30 days after a mediation, either party may submit the matter to binding arbitration, to the extent permitted by law, to be held in or near San Jose, California in accordance with the National Rules for the Resolution of Employment Disputes then in effect of the American Arbitration Association (the "Rules"). The arbitrator may grant injunctions or other relief in such dispute or controversy. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final, conclusive and binding on the parties to the arbitration. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator's decision in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award the prevailing party in any such attorneys' fees and costs incurred in connection therewith. (b) The arbitrator shall apply California law to the merits of any dispute or claim, without reference to rules of conflict of law. Employee hereby expressly consents to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California or the Northern District of California for any action or proceeding arising from or relating to this Agreement and/or relating to any arbitration in which the Parties are participants. (c) Employee understands that nothing in this Section modifies Employee's at-will status. Either the Company or Employee can terminate the employment relationship at any time, with or without cause, subject only to the restrictions set forth in Section 2 above. (d) Employee has read and understands Section 11, which discusses arbitration. employee understands that by signing this agreement, employee agrees to submit any future claims arising out of, relating to, or in 5

connection with this agreement, or the interpretation, validity, construction, performance, breach, or termination thereof to binding arbitration to the extent permitted by law, and that this arbitration clause constitutes a waiver of employee's right to a jury trial and relates to the resolution of all disputes relating to all aspects of the employer/employee relationship, including but not limited to, the following claims: (i) Any and all claims for wrongful discharge of employment; breach of contract, both express and implied; breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, both express and implied; negligent or intentional infliction of emotional distress; negligent or intentional misrepresentation; negligent or intentional interference with contract or prospective economic advantage; and defamation; (ii) Any and all claims for violation of any federal state or municipal statute, including, but not limited to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Fair Labor Standards Act; (iii) Any and all claims arising out of any other laws and regulations relating to employment or employment discrimination. (e) The Parties may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary, without breach of this arbitration agreement and without abridgment of the powers of the arbitrator. 12.

Bartel ----------------------------------------- Ralph Bartel Date: 3/31/2000 ----------------------------------- 6

TRAVELZOO.COM SALES PRODUCTIVITY BONUS PLAN MARCH 31, 2000 HOW THE PLAN WORKS We are pleased to present you with this information covering the details of how Travelzoo.com Sales, Inc. (including its successors, the "Company") will share increased productivity with its employees through a Productivity Bonus Plan (the "Plan") that will become effective as of March 31, 2000. Accordingly, the first Productivity Bonuses will be paid with respect to the period commencing January 1, 2000 and ending March 31, 2000. The Productivity Bonus will consist of a quarterly bonus, which will be based on the "net profit" before taxes of the Company. The bonus amount will be 5% of such net profit before taxes and will be distributed equally to all full-time employees at the end of the second month following a fiscal quarter of the Company. For purposes of this Plan, "net profit" is defined as revenues from banner advertising, display advertising, classifieds advertising and commissions from advertisers for the quarter less (i) sales and marketing expenses for such period, (ii) research and development expenses for such period and (iii) general and administrative expenses for such period, all as determined in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied. Because the Productivity Bonus will be paid in cash, it is taxable. Accordingly, appropriate withholdings will be made from each payment of the Productivity Bonus to Company employees. All bonus payments supplement and are in addition to an employee's salary and any contributions under a tax deferred 401(k) retirement or other similar plan. WHO IS ELIGIBLE All full time employees of the Company are eligible to participate in the Plan and to receive a Productivity Bonus. Because the bonus is based on the Company's productivity through the end of each quarter, an employee must be actively employed on each day of the quarter comprising the bonus computation period in order to be eligible to participate in the bonus. There will be no proration of the bonus distribution for employees who terminate before the end of the applicable bonus period. ADMINISTRATION AND DEFINITIONS The Company will administer the Plan. The calculation of the bonus amount and all other calculations relating to the Plan shall be performed by the Company's accounting department. All matters pertaining to the administration and

interpretation of the Plan shall be determined by the Company in its sole discretion, and the Company's determinations shall be final and binding for all purposes. CHANGES OR TERMINATION OF THE PLAN The Company reserves the right to modify, add to or discontinue the Productivity Bonus or the Plan, or its interpretation of any provision of the Plan, from time to time and at any time in its sole discretion; provided, however, that in the event the Plan is terminated, employees shall be promptly advised and shall receive all bonus amounts earned prior to said termination in due course in accordance with the terms of the Plan previously in effect. NO GUARANTEE OF EMPLOYMENT The Plan is not a contract of employment and does not guarantee continuation of employment for any specified period of time. Employment with the Company is at the mutual consent of the employee and the Company and is subject to termination without cause or notice at the option of either party.


                                                                    Exhibit 10.2

                                    AGREEMENT

     NOW THEREFORE,  in consideration of the foregoing recitals and the promises
and covenants  contained herein, and for other good and valuable  consideration,
the  receipt  and  adequacy  of  which  are  hereby  acknowledged,  the  parties
represent, covenant and agree as follows:

     1.  Grant of Option. The Company  hereby  grants to the  Optionee,  and the
Optionee hereby accepts,  an Option, as modified by the Stock Split, to purchase
from the Company  2,158,349  shares of the  Company's  Common Stock (the "Option
Shares") at an exercise price of $1.00 per share (the "Exercise Price"), subject
to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.

     This Option is not  intended to be and shall not be treated as an incentive
stock option under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

     2.  Vesting  Schedule. This Option shall vest and shall be exercisable,  in
whole or in part, immediately upon execution of this Agreement.

     3.  Term of Option. This Option may be  exercised at any time from the Date
of Grant in  accordance  with the terms of this  Agreement.  This  Option  shall
terminate ten (10) years from the Date of Grant subject to the  restrictions and
limitations of Section 6 below.

     4.  Method of Exercise.

         (a)  This Option shall be exercisable by delivery of a written exercise
notice which shall state the  Optionee's  election to exercise  the Option,  the
number of Option Shares with respect to which the Option is being exercised, and
such other  warranties,  representations  and  agreements  regarding  Optionee's
investment intent with respect to such shares of Common Stock as may be required
by the  Company  to  comply  with  applicable  securities  laws  (the  "Exercise
Notice").  The  Exercise  Notice  shall be signed by the  Optionee  and shall be
delivered in person or by certified mail to any one of the Company's  Directors.
The Exercise  Notice shall be accompanied  by payment of the aggregate  Exercise
Price as to all  exercised  shares.  This Option shall be deemed to be exercised
upon receipt by the Company of such fully executed  Exercise Notice  accompanied
by the aggregate Exercise Price.

         (b)  Payment of the  aggregate  Exercise  Price for Option Shares being
purchased  may be made (i) in cash or by check,  or (ii) by any  other  means of
exercise authorized from time to time by the Company's Board of Directors.

         (c)  No shares of Common Stock shall be issued pursuant to the exercise
of the Option  unless such  issuance  and such  exercise  shall  comply with all
relevant provisions of law and the requirements of any stock exchange upon which
the Common Stock may then be listed.  Assuming such  compliance,  for income tax

purposes the shares of Common Stock shall be considered transferred to the Optionee on the date on which the Option is exercised with respect to such shares. 5. Investment Representation. The Optionee hereby represents and warrants to the Company that the Optionee, by reason of the Optionee's relationship to the Company and Optionee's access to all financial and other information regarding the Company or Optionee's business or financial experience (or the business or financial experience of the Optionee's professional advisors who are unaffiliated with and who are not compensated by the Company or any affiliate or selling agent of the Company, directly or indirectly), has the capacity to protect the Optionee's own interests in connection with the transactions contemplated under this Agreement. 6.

In the event of Optionee's death while this Option remains exercisable, the Optionee's legal representative or representatives or the persons entitled to do so under the Optionee's last will and testament or under applicable intestate laws shall have the right to exercise this Option at any time within a period of one (1) year after death, but not after such death if such death occurs after ten (10) years from the Date of Grant. 7. Adjustments. In the event of any merger, reorganization, consolidation, recapitalization, stock dividend, stock split or similar change affecting the Common Stock, a substitution or proportionate adjustment shall be made in the kind, number and exercise price of shares of Common Stock subject to the unexercised portion of the Option. The terms of such substitution or adjustment shall be as reasonably determined by the Company's Board of Directors. 8. Non-Transferability of Option. Without the express written consent of the Board of Directors of the Company, this Option may not be transferred in any manner otherwise than by will or by the laws of descent or distribution and may be exercised during Optionee's lifetime only by Optionee. The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon the executors, administrators, heirs, successors and assigns of Optionee. 9. Securities Laws Requirements. This Option shall not be exercisable to any extent, and the Company shall not be obligated to transfer any Option Shares to Optionee upon exercise of such Option, if such exercise, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, would violate the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Act") (or any other federal or state statutes having similar requirements as may be in effect at that time). Further, the Company may require as a condition of transfer of any Option Shares pursuant to any exercise of the Option that Optionee furnish a written representation that he is purchasing or acquiring the Option Shares for investment and not with a view to resale or distribution to the public. The Optionee hereby represents and warrants that he understands that the Option Shares are "restricted securities," as defined in Rule 144 under the Act, and that any resale of the Option Shares must be in compliance with the registration requirements of the Act, or an exemption therefrom, and with the requirements of any applicable "Blue Sky" law. Each certificate representing Option Shares shall bear the legends set forth below and any other legends that may be required by the Company or by any federal or state securities laws: THE SECURITIES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE RESTRICTED SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND THE RULES THEREUNDER, AND MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF REGISTRATION OR AN EXEMPTION THEREFROM. THE SECURITIES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER. SUCH TRANSFER RESTRICTIONS ARE BINDING ON TRANSFEREES OF THESE SHARES. Further, if the Company decides, in its sole discretion, that the listing or qualification of the Option Shares under any securities or other applicable law is necessary or desirable, the Option shall not be exercisable, in whole or in part, unless and until such listing or qualification, or a consent or approval with respect thereto, shall have been effected or obtained free of any conditions not acceptable to the Company. 10. No Obligation to Register Option Shares. The Company shall be under no obligation to register the Option Shares pursuant to the Act or any other federal or state securities laws. 11. Market Stand-Off. In connection with any underwritten public offering by the Company of its equity securities pursuant to an effective registration statement filed under the Act, for such period as the Company or its underwriters may request (such period not to exceed 180 days following the date of the applicable offering), the Optionee shall not, directly or indirectly, sell, make any short sale of, loan, hypothecate, pledge, offer or grant any option or other contract for the purchase of, purchase any option or other contract for the sale of, or otherwise dispose of or transfer, or agree to 2

engage in any of the foregoing transactions with respect to, any Option Shares acquired under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Company or its underwriters. 12. Protections Against Violations of Agreement. No purported sale, assignment, mortgage, hypothecation, transfer, pledge, encumbrance, gift, transfer in trust (voting or other) or other disposition of, or creation of a security interest in or lien on, any of the Option Shares by the Optionee in violation of the provisions of this Agreement or the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company, will be valid, and the Company will not transfer any of said Option Shares on its books nor will any of said Option Shares be entitled to vote, nor will any dividends be paid thereon, unless and until there has been full compliance with said provisions to the satisfaction of the Company. The foregoing restrictions are in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies, legal or equitable, available to enforce said provisions. 13. Withholding Requirements. The Company's obligations under this Agreement shall be subject to all applicable tax and other withholding requirements, and the Company shall, to the extent permitted by law, have the right to deduct any withholding amounts from any payment or transfer of any kind otherwise due to Optionee. 14. Taxation Upon Exercise of Option. Optionee understands that, upon exercising the Option, he may recognize income for tax purposes, both federal and state, in an amount equal to the excess of the then fair market value of the Option Shares over the Exercise Price. However, the timing of this income recognition may be deferred for up to six months if Optionee is subject to Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. If Optionee is an employee, the Company will be required to withhold from Optionee's compensation, or collect from Optionee and pay to the applicable taxing authorities an amount equal to a percentage of this compensation income. The Optionee shall satisfy his tax withholding obligation arising upon the exercise of this Option out of Optionee's compensation or by payment to the Company. 15. Entire Agreement and Waiver. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties hereto related to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, arrangements, negotiations and understandings between the parties hereto relating thereto. There are no other agreements, understandings, statements, promises or inducements, oral or otherwise, contrary to the terms of this Agreement. No representations, warranties, covenants or conditions, express or implied, whether by statute or otherwise, other than as set forth herein, have been made by any party hereto. No waiver of any term, provision or condition of this Agreement, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be or shall constitute a waiver of any other provision hereof, whether or not similar, nor shall such waiver constitute a continuing waiver, and no waiver shall be binding unless executed in writing by the party making the waiver. 16. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with, and governed in all respects by, the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of laws thereof. 17. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in several counterparts, and all counterparts so executed shall constitute one Agreement, binding on all of the parties hereto, notwithstanding that all of the parties are not signatory to the original or the same counterpart. 18. Amendment. This Agreement may be altered or amended only by an instrument in writing signed by each of the parties hereto, and such alteration or amendment shall be binding upon the parties, and all other persons or entities. 19. Severability. The invalidity or unenforceability of any particular provision of this Agreement shall not affect the other provisions hereof, and this Agreement shall be construed in all respects as if such invalid or unenforceable provisions were omitted herefrom. 20. Notices. All notices and other communications under this Agreement ("Notices") shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given (i) on the date of service if served personally on the party to whom notice is to be given, or (ii) when dispatched, during the normal business hours of the addressee, by customary means of telefacsimile, on the date dispatched or, if dispatched after the recipient's normal business hours, at the opening of business on the next business day, or (iii) on the third business day after mailing if mailed to the party to whom notice is to be given, by first class mail registered or certified, postage prepaid; provided, however, that Notices to the Company concerning the exercise of the Option shall be deemed to have been duly given only on the date actually received by the Company. Notices to (i) the Company shall be addressed to any one of the Company's Directors at the Company's corporate headquarters, and (ii) the Optionee at his address in the Company's records. 3
