Know where you want to go and when but your friends can't get those dates off work, or can't afford to join you? If you don't want to travel alone, there are various sites now dedicated to putting would-be travelling buddies in touch with each other and this is one of the best. Membership costs £5 per month or £25 per year and, for that, you get a personal profile page, access to the site's message boards and permission to contact other members.
