Looking for answers?

Plenty of web sites can answer your travel questions, but not a lot of attention has been paid to the quality of those answers. Maybe "Carribean007" does know where to find the best spa in Milan, but are you really willing to bet your vacation on it? And how do you know that the fantastic review of the resort you're considering wasn't written by the resort company itself?

Every answer on Expert Travel Answers (ETA) is written by a qualified expert. That expert's name--along with a summary of their qualifications--is right there on every answer. You know who you're taking advice from, and why they're qualified to give it.

So just type your travel-related question into ETA, and get answers you can trust to help make your next trip fantastic. You can even turn on an e-mail alert to notify you when new answers are posted. You can also search previously-answered questions and browse information by category.
