Keep Taking The Tablets

Thomson is using Google+ and Twitter to modernise the holiday experience for its customers. (Oh dear - Ed.)

The holiday company will welcome holidaymakers pre-departure using live Google+ hangouts and invite customers to use a dedicated Twitter
hashtag in-resort to communicate with their iAdvisor.

Thomson is trialling this new way of welcoming customers after research found that holidaymakers are using social networks ahead of their trip to meet other travellers and share information. (What's new there? - Ed.)

Customers travelling to Thomson’s exclusive Sensatori Resort Crete in August will have the opportunity to participate in a Holiday Hangout before they depart. The live video hangouts will give customers the chance to ask their resort based iAdvisor questions about the hotel and local area and get an update on the weather.

They will also be able to tweet questions to their iAdvisor from their sun lounger. All Thomson iAdvisors will be equipped with a tablet to ensure they’re easy to reach wherever they are in the resort. (Unless it's turned off - Ed.)

Roadworks Disrupt Traffic

The main through road of Camp de Mar - Avenida Francisca Capllonch Plomer - has been dug up for road works again by the municipal council. With a section of the Avenida cut off, traffic has been forced to use complicated diversions. This has lead to short-cuts by taxis driving the wrong way down one-way streets in order to gain access to the centre of Camp de Mar.

The council's plan to make further improvements to the road shows no sign of progress in over two months, as witnessed by adjacent piles of sand and gravel that appear to be unused.

The Urban development department of Andratx town council said yesterday that it had “no knowledge” of the situation.

Are you affected by these roadworks? If so, comment below...
