An interesting new site launched in the US this week.
Whole Travel is primarily a travel portal for the eco-concious amongst us but has some very good Uptake-esque search functionality allowing users to browse for products based on emotive keywords.
Some very good pieces of functionality and Ajax-driven tools, as well as decent look and feel, too.
So we asked Whole Travel for a response:
1) Whole Travel contains not only luxury resorts, but also $10.00 camping sites. It has a wide variety of experiences
2) 42% of online travelers identify themselves with green and said that it's a major factor in their decision making
3) It's a niche area that is usually not as affected by price
4) Economic situation affects everyone on some level, but this particular niche will most likely not be as affected as most beause of their desire to find travel experiences.
