travelers can trust what they read,” said Andrew Sherry, editor of Travel. “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to bring together
such a strong group of columnists and contributors.” Travel was launched in May 2001, to provide the many frequent
travelers in the USA TODAY audience with the travel news, information,
resources and tools that they need, 24 hours a day. It was expanded and
redesigned in November 2003.

city guides tailored for time-pressed business travelers, flight tracking,
a comprehensive hotel directory, hotel reviews, and exclusive travel
specials and deals.
