On today’s show I chat with David Clarke, Managing Director, Board Member and Founding Partner of Webjet, Australia’s only pure-play online travel agency. He was previously Group Chief Executive of Jetset Travel and Technology Holdings Pty Ltd .

Among other things we talk about:

  • the origins of Webjet and their vision for online travel services
  • building the site on Microsoft’s .NET technology and how to manage risks as an early adopter
  • the failings of the travel industry to provide genuine service and potential opportunities for the future of the industry
  • the economics of travel agencies and airline commission structures

Now… if you live in SPAIN, and you listen to this show, let me know and we’ll get you on as a guest! Tell us about where you live! Give me a reason to take a tax-deductible visit to your country!

And email us a scanned postcard so we can put it up in our Flickr group!
Don’t forget about the new TPN promotional flyer. Get the flyer from here. And please print out thousands!

I’ll give away some TPN schwag to the best photo of the TPN flyer in a crazy place each month.

As always, our Intro / Outro music “D24″ courtesy of Melbourne band Spruiker.
