Up-to-date directories

If I ever have moments of self-doubt about building a valuable travel resource in Travel Lists, I should remember to go and look at what the 'competition' is.

There are a couple of worthy competitors out there, but there's a lot of shit ones too!

I just passed by quite a classy-looking travel directory and browsed a couple of categories to find hardly any listings in them, but among them one listing for Motours which surprised me. Motours was a well-known and rather good niche operator (run enthusiastically by a guy called Keith Swift, if I remember right) which specialised in self-drive motoring holidays on the continent...... but it sadly went bust in April 2003.

Good to see my competition has a firm and up-to-date grip on the UK travel market!
