The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Yahoo is really busy in the online travel space! First they roll out their Richard Bangs adventure travel site, and now they have spiffed up their own online travel guide to include being able to share your online travel itinerary and online travel planning! And it also allows you to incorporate Flickr!

Here’s what they have to say about it:


SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Oct. 26, 2005 – Yahoo! Inc., a leading global Internet company, today introduces a suite of new products that transform Yahoo! Travel into a comprehensive online travel guide. Yahoo! Travel (http://travel.yahoo.com) is launching a new Trip Planner Beta, which enables users to create, tag, share and print personalized trip itineraries, drawing upon content from Yahoo! Travel or from anywhere on the Web. Other new features include user-contributed travel photos through Flickr(TM), the Web’s leading photo sharing community, and a database of vacation home rentals from owners. The collective power of these new tools enhances consumers’ ability to make their travel decisions, book their arrangements and conveniently organize their information all in one place.

Yahoo! Travel now offers complete destination information to help consumers through every step of the travel planning cycle. Yahoo!’s Travel Guides provide the largest online database of destination-specific travel information, with nearly 500,000 lodging and activity options in more than 40,000 destinations worldwide. Consumers can now access useful travel content, tap into the advice of other travelers, book their arrangements and easily create and print their own personalized travel itineraries.

“At Yahoo! Travel, we want to help travelers find, use and share the knowledge needed to make the most of their trips,” said James Slavet, general manager of Yahoo! Marketplace – Travel and Autos. “The launch of Trip Planner and our expanded community and content offerings are just the beginning of our plans to build the ultimate online travel resource.”
