Check the Weather before you Book your Holiday

The weather is for many an essential factor when planning an holiday, and what better resource to have then the Weather 2 Travel site. You will find various weather stats including, the best month to visit a specific holiday destination, and number of hours of sunshine or rain levels etc.

Check the Weather before you Book

A site that I came across at the World Travel Market is wegolo.com, where you can search for low cost flights by the temperature. I’m yet to be convinced that this type of search will be popular with travellers, but it might be a good site to check before booking your flight.

Will High Street Travel Agencies exist in 2020

Well, it’s the end of the 2006 London World Travel Market, and now I can’t wait for 2007’s event. I’ve learnt so much from other travel professionals. It’s given me a new insight into the travel industry, by talking to travel companies who are excited about the future, and also very keen to provide a first class customer service.

Here are a few more World Travel Market Photos for you to view.

One of the questions asked to the audience at the Travolution conference was “Do you think high street travel agents will exist in 2020?” It was a 50/50 split within the audience, and I voted that I don’t think they will – I can see travel operators like Thomson moving completely to the online arena, with a call centre to deal with anyone who wants to speak to a human rather than booking online.

Imagine how much they would save by not having the operation costs of a travel shop – what do you think? Would you want to be able to step into a travel agency, or are you happy to book your holiday online and independent?

Videos of the World Travel Market

Phew, what a day. It’s nearly 3am and I’m sober enough to write the final blog article for today. During my visit around the World Travel Market today, I took small snippets of video of the stalls and the exhibition.

Videos of the World Travel Market

It’s worth bearing in mind that the video was taken on my four year old digital camera, and it’s my first experience of recording video, so the quality won’t be professional or very good.

Video of the Israel, and Andalucia Stalls at the WTM
Video of the Indonesia stall (one of my favourites)
Video of the main entrance and halls
Video of the Tahiti, New Zealand and Philippines stalls

I have a few more snippets of video, that I will publish tomorrow, and I’ll obviously be uploading the videos to the likes of Travelistic and You Tube soon. I hope you enjoy the videos, or at least get a grasp of how large this exhibition is.

Photographs from the World Travel Market

Just a quick blog post because I am on my way to a travel networking event, that I organised with a few members of Ecademy, so if your in the area and fancy having a chat about travel pop in to the Hedgehog & Pheasant pub near the Apollo Theatre, and Victoria tube station (unless it’s a dive)

Today was mind blowing with an absolutely superb conference, and I’d like to thank Kevin, Simon and all of the Travolution team for inviting me – it was truly a invaluable experience for me. (sorry that I had to rush away!)

Much more information on the Travolution conference and photographs and videos of the World Travel Market soon.

A Bloggers view of the World Travel Market

Wow, I love the World Travel Market. The buzz, of travel professionals networking, travellers reaching for the free gifts, and little me, trying to fight the crowds. I managed to get a few hours, browsing around the stalls, in between the Travolution conference.

My favourite stalls are from Indonesia, China, UAE and Bali – I bumped (literally) into the Mexican Corona girls, and Middle Eastern belly dancers, and that just during my lunchtime break.

I walked around speaking to representatives from 360travelguide.com, the Guangdong Tourist Board , Car Trawler, TouristWay.com and Visit Florida. All of the representatives looked at me blank when I mentioned I was a travel blogger, so I had to explain what a blog was – which surprised me.

The Exhibition is split up into Continents, and has sections for London, and Travel Technology (which I loved because I’m a nerd!) – I felt eyes burning into my chest, maybe its because I had a press pass, and at first exhibitors were a little hesitant in divulging information to me – you would think that it would be the opposite.

Anyway, it’s getting late, and this travel blogger needs to get some sleep – early start in the morning, day two of the excellent Travolution conference, more stall browsing, and hopefully more bumping into the lovely Mexican Corona girls.
