Telegraph writes about online travel

Interesting article in the Sunday Telegraph yesterday about the sweeping changes affecting the traditional travel industry and the impact of the web.

The piece starts off with a look at the MyTravel-Thomas Cook merger but eventually gets into some issues we at Travolution have been discussing for the last 15 months.

Declaration of interest: Simon Ferguson, Travolution's publishing director, who must've impressed a member of the national press with his presentation to the Travel Technology Show last week, is quoted throughout the piece.

Minor error in the article. It says there are "50m travel blogs" on the web. But thankfully, in reality, there are closer to 5 million.

I suspect that someone found the Technorati figure suggesting that there are around 50m blogs in total, and got confused...
