JOHANNES EISELE/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Google says it is acquiring the travel brand Frommer’s from John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“The Frommer’s team and the quality and scope of their content will be a great addition to the Zagat team,” a Google spokesperson said Monday in a statement to ABC News. “We can’t wait to start working with them on our goal to provide a review for every relevant place in the world.”

John Wiley & Sons, Inc., said Monday that it has “entered into a definitive agreement to sell of its travel assets, including all of its interests in the Frommer’s brand, to Google.”

Earlier this year, Wiley said it was exploring opportunities to sell a number of its assets, “as they no longer align with the company’s long-term business strategy.”
