Telstra today announced it has updated the BigPond Travel site with new services including travel planning and booking. New to the site also is destination content from Lonely Planet.
Telstra's director of online services, John Rolland today said that up to a year ago there was a limited choice in online services, dominated mainly by US-based companies. "The site provides direct access to 500 airlines, more than 45,000 hotels, 54 car rental companies, as well as tours, packages, the latest travel deals, and travel news that is updated daily," he said.
BigPond Travel covers travel information ranging from air travel, accommodation, personal loans, ground transport, travel insurance, updates on foreign exchange rates, visa and passport requirements, world weather updates, maps and advice on what to pack.
