These days, travel information comes from a variety of sources. Now, most of our travel information is on the internet. And for a majority of people, travel is now booked online as well. Websites, search engines, airfares, and internet travel information are now the main sources of our travel for many people. Beyond information on the internet, travel has extended to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and more. TV shows, youtube, travel blogs, and iPods are other aspects of travel that have taken off in the last few years and been one of the fastest growing markets for travel information.
With all the travel information that is out there, what’s your favorite source of travel information?
For as much as I love travel blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and technology, my favorite source of travel is the written word in my hands – books and magazines. I may be a bit old-fashioned but I enjoy reading up on a destination with a book in my hand or carrying a guidebook around when I travel. I appreciate all the technology and information that is available but nothing beats a good travel book or magazine.
What do you use for travel? Do you like more traditional methods of information or is technology a bigger source of your travel information?
