Yahoo Launches Trip Planner Beta
Taking advantage of its new Flickr acquisition, Yahoo is rolling out a beta test for its Trip Planner service that will be offered through Yahoo! Travel. Visitors will be able to tag, share and print personalized trip itineraries, which can be joined by photos, maps and driving directions.
Pictures from a trip can be shared via Flickr, and users can submit reviews and ratings of destinations, hotels and restaurants. In addition, Yahoo will make available classified listings for vacaiton rentals and other travel-related content from partners such as Fodors, The New York Times and Conde Nast Traveler.
