How does Crystal Compass work? How do I use it?
There are eight business groups to choose from:
  • Accommodations
  • Health Care
  • Dining
  • Entertainment
  • Services
  • Shopping
  • Sport & Recreation
  • Travel & Tourism

You can find the "Services", "Shopping" and "Sport & Recreation" business groups under the "More Businesses" link on the landing page. We also moved the "Beauty Salon & Spa" businesses under the "Health & Beauty" link. Resorts are presented now under their own "Resorts" link and farms, wineries and ethnic food shops are located under the "Farms & Wineries" link.

From the landing page you will be navigated to the main search page. At the top of the page you will find a drop-down menu with a list of available city and region names. Start by typing in a desired city name and do a selection from the list of suggestions.

Change a country and a country region by the "Country and Region" filter.

To refind the search result you may want to use a navigation panel with a number of clickable categories located just under the city/region drop-down:
  • Clicking on a certain category at the first time will provide you with a list of businesses related to this category.
  • Clicking on an already selected category will clear the category filter and get you back to the list of businesses with no filters applied.

You may also apply a number of filters located on the left-hand side of the screen to refine the search results. In order to see more information about a certain business, - click on a corresponding "Details" button. When you are on the business details page and want to go back to the search results, - just click on a "Back" button in your browser.

Is it possible to add/edit some business info if I find something missing or incorrect?

If you have found a business that has missing or incorrect information, we do encourage you to send us a message by clicking on the "let us know" link located at the bottom of each page that contains details of a specific business. You may submit us any information pertaining to a particular business, icluding cases when such a company or business is no longer operational.

Can I book a hotel/restaurant/any other venue through Crystal Compass?

At this time, we only provide information about various businesses. However we do consider this possibility in the future.

I own a business, but I couldn't find it on your website. Can I add it to Crystal Compass?

Absolutely. Just click on an "Add your business" button located on any of the search results page and complete a short form.

I own a business, but I don't have a website. Can it still be added to Crystal Compass?

Yes, you can. If you own a business with little or no online presence, Crystal Compass is your solution.

My business has presented in multiple locations. Should I register all of them?

It's not required but it may help your business to be found more efficiently if you register all locations of your businesses. Having registered multiple business locations also increases your opportunities to utilize our services to the highest degree.
