Hello and welcome to the new look Holiday Truths! We have been beavering away behind the scenes and after a great deal of thought and work, we very much hope you are enjoying the new look and feel of the site.
Of course, the most obvious changes are the new brighter colours and branding but there are a number of others intended to make the site both better and easier to use. We have a new smart search function while the destination pages have been updated to further help you find exactly what you’re looking for. The accommodation pages themselves have simpler reviews and ratings.
We have also kept the most popular parts of the site. Both the forums and the conversation threads remain, allowing you to discuss all holiday-related matters, and you will find them as easy to use as ever.
Many of you will have noticed we have removed the media gallery links, but rest assured this is purely a temporary change while we make them effortless to post on and slicker overall. We expect to have the new and improved galleries up and running by the end of the summer.
While we have improved much of the site, we have no intention of changing its most important aspect – its independence. Holiday Truths is the home of the largest totally independent travel community in the UK and that is fundamental to its success. We will have a new verification process to verify all site users and their reviews. So you can be sure of their honesty and integrity.
We have also added this blog to help you even more. We will use it to post news, views and information about the travel industry, ensuring you will always be kept abreast of anything affecting your holiday. Similarly, in the event of any problems, from ash clouds to travel company failures, we will keep you posted with the latest news and advice, helping ensure any inconvenience you experience will be kept to the absolute minimum. So stay tuned.
Holiday Truths has been a success for 12 years now thanks to you, our online community. With the new improvements and your ongoing support we are confident that the future is even brighter!
