Abstract

The information intensive nature of the tourism industry renders the proliferation of travel-related information. This phenomenon, together with the ongoing growth of Internet applications in tourism, necessitates the presence of countless websites for travel- related service and products. Accessing most of these travel websites, in a form of suppliers or intermediaries, is virtually beyond the capability of users. As such, setting up a search engine for travel websites would be beneficial for users to browse, and subsequently to purchase, on selected websites at preferred prices. PinpointTravel’s facility to fetch fares from different websites and display the results in a straightforward way for direct comparison would certainly be beneficial to travelers, in general and budget-minded travelers in particular.
