New website can find a “holiday friend”

Site combines trend in social networking with travel

Findaholidayfriend.com is the name of a new website that combines the trend in social networking with travel. Once they register, a process that includes providing an email address, users then move on to choosing the type of holiday they want and reviewing the summary details of other people interested in the same kind of holiday.
The key is to chat to people, but this is done via an internal email system, so users don’t have to give out their personal email address. There are also travel advice pages, and the website says there will be offers, discounts and competitions in the future.
