Website for travelers in transit

Travelers in transit need not be bored any longer .  Thanks to a  website www.timeintransit.com   launched recently , travelers in transit at Middle East airports will be able to garner information on what to do while in transit .

This website  not only provides details of what travellers can do when transiting through Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Bahrain and Sharjah airports , but has teamed up with booking.com to offer an online booking tool for flights, hotels and car rentals .

Although still in its infancy, Time in Transit plans to post a forum, where travellers can exchange tips and travel experiences to pool knowledge , so  that those in transit can learn how to maximise their travel time during stopovers.
 Time in Transit  Managing Editor , Alex Warren , said that it seemed like a logical progression  seeing that so much time in the Gulf is being spent in transit .

Key site features include detailed airport guides and city highlights for short stay travellers.

Warren is also looking to team up with local inbound travel agents and DMCs to offer tours for short-stay/stopover travellers.

 In transit , luggage is already processed , so with stopovers of over five hours local tour operators could take people out and still get them back in plenty of time to get their connection .

As well as being a useful tool for those in transit, the site also offers an excellent platform for the local travel trade to promote their services .
