Google acquires Frommer's, pushes further into travel info

Google acquires Frommer's, pushes further into travel info

The company acquired the travel guide service from John Wiley & Sons for an undisclosed sum, but may face critics alarmed by its growing clout in the travel arena.

Google is once again investing in the travel space.
The search giant is acquiring travel guide provider Frommer's from John Wiley & Sons. It's not immediately clear what Google might have planned for Frommer's, and a purchase price has not been divulged.
Wiley announced earlier this year that it would put Frommer's, which includes everything from travel guides to hotel ratings, on the purchasing block, though the company did not have any potential suitors in mind.
