AOL Pitches Travel Site

AOL is launching a test, or beta, version of what it is calling AOL Travel Guides.

The Dulles company said the new site is "an online resource that provides detailed information on more than 1,900 national and international locations and over 100,000 hotels. Also available through AOL® Travel (http://travel.aol.com), Travel Guides include destination information -- restaurants, bars, sights, activities and events -- as well as hotel listings, with links to book directly from the site. In addition, the guides automatically plot these locations on a map using industry-leading technology and features from MapQuest®."

Our quick look at the site suggests programmers may have some work to do. We typed in "Rehobeth Beach Del." and got listings for Chile's Vina Del Mar, Myrtle Beach, Palm Beach, Spain and Cuba. The advertising links at the bottom of the page seemed to get our drift, though.
