The reasons why I am doing this? Well, Traveller's Point offers the following:
- Mapping of holiday journeys on a map of the planet, including distance travelled
- Uploading of photos and linking them to cities on your mapped travels
- Blogging and diary facilities
The biggest reason that I am using them however, is that it is possible to book accomodation through them. We used this site a lot on our travels last year, and have used them since, as they do the range from budget up to 5 star. I was comparing their prices with those on Expedia and they were roughly half the price for the same hotel.
As such, I would recommend them to all independent travellers out there.
