Travel Sites Set Their Sights on Business Travelers

One need only follow a few publicists on Twitter to see all of the airport check-ins, delays, landings, and layovers that the industry is making as part of the regular course of business. This week, there were a couple of announcements from Gogobot, a company that only launched in November 2010, and Orbitz that might make getting to and fro a little easier.

Gogobot, the social travel site that gives users advice and information about international travel destinations, announced that it had been integrated with five of the biggest online websites: Expedia, Kayak,, Orbitz, and Priceline. According to the press release, Gogobot allows you to leverage your social networks for all sorts of travel information and this partnership will help travelers to gather even more info for planning and taking a trip.
