Travel 2.0 describes the second wave of travel information Web sites. What makes Travel 2.0 different from the first, booking-oriented wave (i.e. Expedia, Travelocity, AA.com) is that it is fully interactive and expands via user-generated content.
A Travel 2.0 site is structured to allow users to easily contribute words and images, reviews and travelogues. Consequently those who visit a Travel 2.0 site can glean multiple insights about a destination, hotel, or other aspect of travel.
Several Travel 2.0 sites encourage visitors to add photos and/or video in sharing their experiences. Travel wikis, mashups, and blogs that enable comments also are considered Travel 2.0. For contributors there is no compensation involved, other than the satisfaction of seeing one's words or images on a public Web site.
