...Times Online Travel Section.
Hot on the heels of the 100 Best Travel Websites just two months ago, the Times Online travel team has assembled the Top 10 Travel Websites!
And rubbing shoulders with the likes of EasyJet, TravelSupermarket, WAYN.com, Laterooms, Worldweather, Simplyparking, Multimap, TripAdvisor, Expedia is, er, Times Online Travel.
"Yes, we’re blowing our own trumpet here. But where else can you find more than 5,000 skilfully written and carefully researched travel articles, all easily searchable?Oh dear.
"Once inspired, you can also find exclusive deals on thousands of hotels, villas and apartments. And if you want the latest travel blogs, webcams, websites and internet booking tips, you can check out Timesonline.co.uk/onlinetravel."
Certainly the Sunday Times wouldn't score too highly if users wanted flight and hotel search tools like those on its bitter rivals, the Guardian and Telegraph (both of which use TravelSupermarket), or TravelMail, the travel portal for the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday.
And perhaps there has been a change of heart in the newsroom about one of the Top 10. In October last year the Sunday Times ran a full-page expose about TripAdvisor and other user review websites, claiming hoteliers were posting hoax reviews.
The piece sent the likes of TripAdvisor into a rather understandable tizz after it emerged they had actually been trying to help them out with the story.
