I wouldn't link to these myself, the links pages have very little PR, but I
can't see anything dodgy going on except for the fact that each link page
seems to be an exact copy so could possibly be seen as duplicate content.

If you are in the travel business it may be worthwhile, but make sure you
dilute the links back to them so you don't leak too much PR.

Re: Help - is this a link farm?

Looks like a link scheme to me.  Do not under any circumstances link TO
any such sites as it could get you yourself penalised.  It is worth
regularly testing all outgoing links from your own site to see if they
are still reputable and genuinely of benefit to your visitors.  Delete
every outgoing link that leads to rubbish.

The best outgoing links from your site are to quality pages that
provide really interesting and useful information that benefit your
site visitors.  Link directly to information pages on other sites, not
the home page.  Think in terms of the pages you link to as forming part
of your site, so apply your own standards of readability, speed of
download, lack of pop ups, browser compatibility or whatever to any
page you are thinking of linking to.  If necessary, ask the far end
site to improve, e.g. to reduce image file sizes, if you need to link
to them to help your visitors.   Be very wary about linking to any page
with zero PR, unless you are certain the page is new and the site

If you find reverse links to your site FROM a dodgy link farming scheme
don't worry, it won't do you any harm but it won't do you much good

Best regards, Eric.
