Toronto-based online travel agency FlightNetwork.com said that Canadians planning their next vacation will now be able to easily access some of the best travel blogs written by their fellow citizens who are leading the way in a burgeoning online industry.
On Monday FlightNetwork.com released the Top 100 Canadian Travel Blogs, a list compiled through crowdsourcing on social media sites. The list can be found at FlightNetwork.com.
Bloggers were nominated for inclusion in the list by the travel blogging community. Nominees were contacted via email by FlightNetwork.com and asked to outline the details of their blog.
Using the list, travellers will be able to access recommended blog posts, link to the blogger´s social media pages and, most importantly, search for blogs that write about their upcoming destination. With a reputation for global backpacking, travel-blogging Canadians appear to have reached every corner of the earth.
The list is also an opportunity for bloggers to network amongst themselves and others in the travel industry, such as public relations professionals and marketers.
Conversely, the list will also be very useful for travel industry professionals who are looking for Canadian bloggers to work with. Until now, there has never been such a comprehensive resource for finding Canadian bloggers, said Gibson.
FlightNetwork.com offers consumers access to over 2m bulk rates on cheap flights negotiated with major airlines. Its proprietary flight booking engine offers last second booking and the ability to ´mix and match´ fares.
