Is Google gunning for travel?

Anyone scouring the Times job section recently may have noticed that Google is on the prowl again, this time for a travel executive. If the speculation is to be believed, Google is making its first inroads into the world of vertical search, and it is travel information that it is after.

Whilst it may be hard to believe that Google needs more data, a vertical travel search could make it a valid option for your average Joe wanting to book a holiday. What's more, a lot of blog activity generated by 'the ad' ahs thrown up the idea that Google may incorporate video streaming into its holiday results, making a potential Google Travel a very interesting advertising prospect.

A trip to Paris is always a special moment, once you have reserved your flight ticket and your vacation rental, you can focus on planning your visit. Paris has a reputation for high prices, but wise travellers will discover Paris’ museums for free.Le Petit Palais Built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900, this museum presents works since Antiquity until end of the XIXth century
