MSN Travel revamps their Website to incorporate multiple Travel Features

MSN Travel Website

Microsoft completed surveys and found that 3 out of 4 consumers in the United States will visit multiple websites when planning their travel and vacation.  Microsoft revamps their MSN Travel Web site at travel.msn.com to help meet the needs of the consumers when planning their travel.  Currently you can see their beta version that they are working on that will offer a complete travel solution for consumers.

The research survey found that most of the consumers valued websites the most when they were research/guides of activities and things to do.  Booking a flight on an airplane and comparing hotel rates were second most helpful.  Consumers found that travel and news related articles to be the third most helpful in planning their trip using the internet.

 

The survey of 1,844 people in the survey that actually went on a vacation more than three-quarters said they spent on average less than $2,000 on their trip.

MSN has partnered with the following companies to make their website more of a one stop location for planning travel vacations.  MSN will have over 78,000 pages of content to supply necessary information for the consumer. 

They have a partnership with The Associated Press that will provide news related travel articles along with features each week. 

Dorling Kindersley Publishing is providing content from their Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guides. 

Expedia.com, Hotels.com, Hotwire.com, and TripAdvisor.com will offer bookings for hotels, and airlines. 

 

Frommer’s will provide content for 3,500 destination guides who include information on restaurants, shopping and activities.  Frommer’s are the best selling travel guide series in North America.      

ShermansTravel.com will provide articles on popular travel locations like Las Vegas.  They also will provide top 10 lists.

Travel + Leisure magazine will provide content each month.  They will offer “The World’s Best Hotels” and “Where to Go Next: Paris” and Hidden Hawaii.

TripAdvisor.com will provide the content for over 3 million user ratings and reviews for hotels, resorts, inns, dining and attractions.

 

“People who work hard all year to earn their vacation time shouldn’t have to spend time visiting multiple sites to assemble the pieces of their dream getaway,” said John Nicol, general manager of MSN. “The new MSN Travel builds upon our extensive partnerships with many of the world’s largest and most trusted leisure-travel industry advisers to create a more relevant, personalized and convenient trip-planning experience for consumers.”

Integrating the content and services into one site location will make it easier for people to book a vacation all in one location.  You will be able to research where you want to travel, be able to book your airplane flight and find hotel and activities.
