Next wave of travel websites feels like MySpace | csmonitor.com

Next wave of travel websites feels like MySpace | csmonitor.com

This is a Christian Science Monitor article on Travel 2.0 (Web 2.0 applied in the travel sector). The article is somewhat narrowly focused on TripAdvisor.com, though it does mention Farecast.com (great idea, if you live in Boston or Seattle, useless for the rest of the world) and Gusto.com (not one I am familiar with). Personally, I think the hottest Travel-Mypace is 43Places.com, though I personally am currently using MyLifeOfTravel.com and Vicarious.com.

Hi,

You mentioned you will review some travel websites. There is a site www.deliverthat.com that allows travelers, etc to obtain items they are not able to get within their own country. Can you mention this in your blog? Its a really good concept but of course we need to build an international community of members in order to make it work. Kind Regards.

Hi, and while doing so please also checkout www.bringsome.com which has a fast growing user base and number of ads. Its the original P2P delivery platform and discussed on many different blogs and won the TimesOnline website of the week award.
