In a media release Monday travel metasearch engine Kayak - owned by Priceline since 2012 - announced the launch of KAYAK Guides, a search-and-sharing product claimed to enable users to:
"Keep track of memorable places and add notes during your trip (to remind you later that that macadamia nut latte was, in fact, worth the detour)
Create visual, custom travel itineraries and plan your activities using an interactive map
Share your travel experiences with friends and family when you get home"
KAYAK VP/Product Vanessa Kafka said:
"We wanted to make personalizing your travel recommendations more visual and interactive, so we built our own solution...This is only the beginning for Guides - in the near future, travelers will be able to search within Guides for specific locations, themes and more."
Travel metasearch continues to heat up.
Usual disclaimer: KAYAK hasn't compensated me in any way for this mention.
