INTERACTIVE: Emap Travel

The Emap travel site looks like the front window of a local high-street bucket shop: dated but functional. It claims to be the most popular travel site in the UK and to have ’harnessed the power of the Web to put at your disposal a powerful tool’. To a certain extent, it delivers. There are links to regularly updated travel information, and the bargain holiday finder works well, though no information is given on the destination the database selects for you. Where the site falls down is that you can’t book holiday tickets online. Instead you have to wait for a phone call the next day - ’because’, the sloppy excuse reads, ’we’re concerned as much as you are about your security’.
