  • A tool for researching and planning your trip.
  • A tool for making travel reservations and purchases
  • A tool for staying in touch and taking care of business while on the road.
  • Not all-knowing, infallible, or always superior.
  • A supplement, not a substitute, for other travel planning and buying resources.
  • A tool to be your own travel agent; not a substitute for the knowledge you need to be a successful do-it-yourself travel agent.
  • Not a substitute for travel itself! No matter how much time you spend online, never forget that real travel takes place in the real world, face-to-face with real people, perceiving and experiencing places directly with all your senses.

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
