It seems there are quite a few websites out there that let you set up your vacation plans all from a single site. You can find the hotel where you want to stay, your car, and everything else all from the same page. That seems pretty useful, I think, and I know of a few sites like that off the top of my head.
I was thinking, though, that I wonder what is going to happen to the actual company websites. Like, instead of going to a hotel’s website to book your hotel, you can just do it from one of those other sites. I know it all goes to the same reservation regardless no matter how you do it, but it just seems like things might be getting made a bit more involved than they have to.
I mean, it’s cool that you can do it and all. I’m not tryign to say that it’s not useful.
And when you’ve got the site available to set up everything at once, it is probably the best way to do it.
I think that it’s probably one of those things where there are going to be a few pages like that and then it’s going to sort of change into something else. I don’t know what, but that’s how the internet goes.
There is probably a lot of work for travel website designers, too, since they have to get everything set up and make sure that all of the different things people might want are available. They also probably have to plan everything out so that it works in a way that makes it easy for the user.
And I bet it’s one of those things where you have to get all the different information to be able to go to all the different pages so that you can see the hotel choices while you’re looking at where you want to go, etc. And the website has to be able to do that without letting the user know what is going on, because they just want to make their pick.
This is definitely an interesting concept, though, and I think that we will probably experience it even more as developers come up with more ideas to give consumers what they want. It will probably go to simplify things even more, I suppose. The coolest part of all of this, though, is that it is something that we can all experience.
