Unless you use an agency, preparing for a travel can be a long task. You have to decide where you will go, how you will get there, where you will stay, maybe renting a car, etc. There are many internet sites that provide all of those services on one website. This makes your life a lot easier. They also can build pre-prepared trips or offer deals that can come to you through the social media sites if you follow them. Here are a few examples:
Expedia can be followed on Twitter, they have a Facebook page, and they have a mailing list so you are the first to know about their deals.
Here again you can follow them on different social media sites. One interesting thing about Kayak is that they are a redirecting site. They find the best deals and then you are prompted to book your trip with other companies.
They are really good in offering trips but their presence on Social Media is less than the others.
Along with being able to book your vacation, Tripadvisor.ca also lets travellers review their trips to help you on yours.
Even if some of those sites work a little different from one another the goal is the same, to get everything done in one stop. I just gave you a few examples of sites but there is many more: Cheaptickets, Orbitz, Yahoo Travel, Ebookers, etc. Since they can offer this they can also offer different deals and with the use of social media followers will be advantaged by being the first or only to hear about them. This also opened the door to 48 hours limited offers and trip offers that seem to be made for you. This is also a nice way to attract people to the tourism industry, they don’t have to check for deals, if they follow one of these websites, you are told where you want to go next. The only thing you have to do is book and ‘voilà’; you are on your way to a new adventure. Lastly, please read the reviews these sites have been given; because you don’t see who you are dealing with, you want to make sure the site you found is authentic.
