Tripatini provides up-to-date oil spill information announced the launch of the Gulf Coast Travel Update (, an online group that provides centralized information on travel conditions in all the states affected by the BP oil spill.

The group, which forms part of the social network for travelers and travel experts, is accessible via its own URL.

Group visitors will find a comprehensive list of tourism resources, beach status reports, and oil spill monitoring for Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and the general Gulf of Mexico region.

The service is intended to help potential visitors planning a trip. An aggregated Twitter feed provides minute-by-minute news from Gulf state tourism boards and travel professionals.

“Not only does this online group provide reliable Gulf Coast information all in one place, it allows direct dialogue between experts and concerned travelers,” said Tripatini founder and CEO David Paul Appell.

Said Tripatini President José Balido:

“In today’s busy media landscape, many travelers don’t know where to begin searching for reliable information about current conditions on the Gulf Coast. Gulf Coast Travel Update helps travelers and travel professionals cut through the misinformation.”
