 Travel Portals -sites with everything

There are a few key sites on travel that seem to have everything and at the same time defy categorisation -these are the portals and directories -the starting points for other sites. Here are a few of the better known ones.

Both the Guardian and the Independant have good travel sections where you can search for articles on sustainable travel (or anything else for that matter).

Useful sites:

  • E bookers -online travel agent doing cheap flights, car hire, hotels, holidays, insurance and travel information.
  • Expedia -wide range of travel resources -choose from over 390 destinations online -seem to be strongest on city breaks and last minute deals.
  • -Guide to accommodation and tourist information for all the major European tourist destinations.
  • -the place to go for last minute bargains on flights, cruises, train tickets and holidays.
  • Opodo -an online travel service owned by nine of the world's leading airlines (British Airways, Air France, Alitalia, Iberia, KLM, Lufthansa, Aer Lingus, Austrian Airlines, Finnair ) and by GDS and travel industry technology provider, Amadeus, offering flights, hotels, car rental and holidays.
  • The Guardian -travel pages of the UK national daily
  • The Independant -online articles, news and travel photos from the newspaper.
  • Time Out Travel -guides to more than fifty cities in Europe and beyond.
  • Wikitravel -open source travel guide featuring information on attractions, hotels, restaurants and travel tips -we put this one in despite having considerable reservations about the general standard of contrent on Wikipedia.
