Melbourne, Australia (PressExposure) February 23, 2009 -- Planbooktravel.com.au, a leading online Australian travel guide, has today announced the launch of new user profiling services to help members meet each other and share experiences.
From today, planbooktravel.com.au members can add their biography, location, map, personal web link, interests and photograph to their own personal home page called âMy Placeâ.
Each members âMy Placeâ page has an interactive map of Australia with marker pins at certain locations. Like the traditional travel map you mount on your wall, the digital pin board distinguishes between the places theyâve visited, or places they plan to go and also geographically references their content.
Travellers will now be able to view different members maps to see experiences they have in common or make contact with travellers who have been places the travel planner is interested in visiting.
Jeremy Baird, Managing Director of planbooktravel.com.au said,
âOur new member features are all about bringing travellers together. Whether you share a passion for travelling or need to ask an experienced travellersâ advice, planbooktravelâs new tools have made accessing this type of knowledge easier than ever before.â
The âMy Placeâ page also allows family and friends to share journeys and holidays in context with the map.
planbooktravel.com.auâs dedication to improving the online Australian travel experience has received notable national press, the latest being its inclusion into âBest of the Best Travel Websites 2008â in the Sunday Herald Sun.
