Web advice in the Guardian

The Guardian newspaper got in touch last week, asking us to contribute to its Top Tips 2007 feature for the following Saturday.

Happy to oblige, of course.

Travolution joined the likes of one our advisory board members Graham Donoghue (TUI), alongside Sabrina Wolfe (Cheapflights) and Barry Smith (Skyscanner) to produce a list of tips for readers surfing the web for holidays.

Our own little nugget of advice:

"Desktop pingers help you keep up with offers and fares from online travel agents and don't clog up your inbox.'s Fare Alert tool notifies users when a particular price for a route becomes available. STA Travel's Skinker lets you know when fares, blogs and podcasts are updated."

Love this Gem from ABTA.
Haven't they just recently changed their level of protection ?

Keith Richards

Check if an online company will protect your holiday. Statutory schemes exist to protect your money and ensure that you'll be brought home if your travel company goes out of business. Look out for the Abta or Atol symbols on the website. If you are unsure, you can check whether the online holiday company is an Abta member on Remember there is no legal requirement that flights bought direct from an airline, or accommodation-only sales are protected. Always ask, to be sure.
