New website aims to offer the best information on holiday destinations

The new Countrybycountry.com website was launched by Absolutely Publishing Ltd.

The website is completely free to use and thanks to its user-friendly interface, you can access the information you need with just several clicks of the mouse.

The website takes advantage of the information provided by the ABTA Members’ handbook, a book which was first released over a decade ago and is constantly and improved to provide specific and accurate information about the most popular travel destinations. The website was built after numerous requests by users who want access to an online edition of the popular book.

The new website is full of useful travel information specific to each destination, including maps, advice, tips and facts. It will be accessible via ABTA.com as well as being a standalone site. It will also incorporate ABTA Magazine content.

We’ll be looking to add destination articles, travel highlights, editors’ picks, city guides and ABTA Magazine features. We hope visitors will soon find it to be an essential online travel resource.”

Victoria Bacon, Head of Communications, ABTA – The Travel Association said: “We know that the Handbook is valued by our Members as a very useful source of information on destinations. It makes absolute sense extend this to offer similar content online, in addition to the print edition.”
