Travel talk: Online and dangerous (aka Coverage of ITYT!!!!)

Travel talk: Online and dangerous

Quote:
There's no doubt about it: If you want to moan about a ruined business trip or sing out praise for an exquisite hotel there is no better place than the Internet.

Think of what the World Wide Web did to travel agencies, well it's also revolutionizing how we talk about travel -- web whispers no longer -- online communities are now in full throttle.

"The need is just beginning to be met in such a niche like business travel, you have a look at personal community sites like www.livejournal.com. The demand is incredible," Daniel Baker who runs online travel community www.ITYT.com told CNN.

"People constantly strive to find people that they relate to. The Internet has allowed people to expand the opportunity to meet [others] with similar interests. These communities have to be developed and built to bridge the final gap," he reiterates.

Many of those who travel for business are using online communities to stay abreast of the latest airline news, policies and procedures.

Since "[airlines] are constantly changing the rules and even the most travel savvy folks have to work hard to keep up," says Baker.
