MSN revamps Travel site has relaunched its Travel channel to include content from The Guardian, Condé Nast Traveller and Rough Guides.

The redesign is part of an ongoing strategy to boost advertising revenue for the portal. It has already revamped other elements of its site including its movie channel.

The redesign is being rolled out in time for the January booking season, which is traditionally the travel industry’s busiest time of year as people plan their summer holidays.
