Three partners were involved in the creation of Travel Insights 100: UpTake, a travel search engine,Tips from the T-List, a community of travel bloggers and BootsnAll, a leading travel blog network. UpTake conceived the idea, Stephen from Tips from the T-List and president of Sentias brought it to life by developing the idea with UpTake and designing and engineering the project. BootsnAll lent their support at the outset by enlisting the participation of their top bloggers into the program. By combining these firms respective areas of expertise, Travel Insights 100 was launched with 100 members in September, 2009.
At Sentias, they are keenly aware that for many Internet brands, perception is reality. How your brand is perceived online can drastically impact your effectiveness and your positioning in the online space. This has never been more true than in today’s user generated, socially connected web. Whether you realize it or not, your customers are talking about you in ways you may not expect.
Sentias is a leader in social media strategy and application development by continuously delivering high quality solutions for customers around the world. What drives this focus on quality and service is their own strategic vision and values. As with all things Sentias, we believe that strong leadership is a key to success.

You might be familiar with BootsnAll for our busy travel forums, where experts and newcomers share information in an unusually civilized way, or for our daily feature articles that provide interesting and helpful ideas that hope to make you think about travel in different ways and introduce you to new destinations to consider. But in addition to that the BootsnAll Travel Network is also loaded with practical travel advice that aims to save you money and time, while making your trip smoother and more enjoyable.
You’ll find travel sites all over the internet that seem to only exist to get you to click on a link to book an expensive trip, but BootsnAll instead was built from the ground up as a collection of resources that put the travelers, rather than the advertisers, first. If you are interested in taking a round the world trip, we’ve got the most information you can find anywhere, all written by our own experts who’ve been taking these trips themselves for years. If you want to book a round the world plane ticket for your trip, we are here to help you do that as cheaply as possible, but our travel advice stands on its own.
In addition to all the resources meant to help independent travelers, we have a fast growing network of destination and theme-based travel guide sites under the WhyGo brand. Each site is written by an expert who knows the destination or theme inside and out, so even if you aren’t a young backpacker you’ll be able to find helpful information that should untangle each destination and assist you in planning whatever kind of trip that fits your own style.
Saving money is important for those of us who like to travel frequently, so you’ll also find that we have a large toolbox full of resources that will help you find the best transportation and accommodation options for you, in the shortest amount of time, and in a way that you’ll be confident you are getting the best deal possible when you are ready to book.
