    Well, it remains to be seen as I doubt that a search engine can offer a personalized service or for that matter a tailor made safari for a discerning guest. Will the search engine personally meet the client at the port of entry? I doubt it.

    What is their direction in terms of competing with the corporate OTAs like expedia for business or Tbiz? This seems very leisure oriented and wondering what their intent is for the corporate market, if any.

      Leisure is something that the technology buffs enjoy on DNA.. If you can comprehend what I mean, it will take a wink of an eye for Google to take the industry by a storm… Mark my words they will rule every industry that involves technology and Internet.. :)

  3. Sudipto Roy says:

    Google offers most of the services for free and that is one of the main secrets of their success.. How will they impose their technological strength in the travel industry is still something to wait and watch…

    Lets see the advancement

  5. Putranto says:

    Correct me if I am wrong …. Google has been around for so long with all the resources available to create a leading “out of the box” web travel services … and yet I can’t see any new “travel business process” created by Google so far … ?

    • Sudipto Roy says:

      You are right, we have tried to compile its features, apps and latest contribution to the international tourism industry as a whole.. However, if you read between the lines of the article, you will surely understand that Google is steadily accumulating a lot of concern from the booking portals and other travel services as well.

      Thank you for your reflection, we value your comments and feedback!
