Trusted, Experienced Travel Expertise: Ask The Travel Pros at Expert Travel Answers
New Website Provides Travelers with Accurate Information on Abundance of Travel Questions
DETROIT (April 28, 2011) - Consumers seeking answers to questions they have regarding travel destinations and planning need look no further than the new travel information website, Expert Travel Answers.
The creators of the highly successful travel website CruiseCompete are introducing this new site, which features information and opinions from experts within the travel industry. Visitors to the site may ask as many questions as they wish, then view answers from qualified, trusted travel experts.
The experts, who include experienced travelers as well as travel professionals and writers, must apply to the site and be accepted based on their travel knowledge. They then fill out a profile with information including all certifications, awards, industry association memberships, and other credentials, which is published with every answer they make on the site. Consumers know exactly whom they are dealing with, and why that person is an expert on the topic.
Visitors to ExpertTravelAnswers can choose to ask questions one of two ways: anonymously or through an account. There is no fee for the service in either case, but those who choose to create an account get the benefit of e-mail notifications when their questions are answered. The process takes just a few minutes.
Once a question is posed, it will not publish on the site at least one expert has answered, allowing the site to weed out online spam and leaving only professional and relevant answers.
The benefits of this revolutionary system are two-fold: consumers get professional answers to their specific travel questions, and travel experts are able to put their expertise on display. When it’s time for travelers to choose an agent, hotel company or travel blog to read, they’ll know who has the expertise to help make their travel plans a success. All the expert information is right there at their fingertips!
