Do you remember the last time you booked a flight ticket through a travel agent? Well, most people don’t. But that doesn’t alter the fact that technology has an indispensable role to play in the future of travel. The travel industry is constantly innovating new ideas and concepts to offer a pleasant experience to the travelers across various social and digital channels. The digital occurrence in the travel industry is expanding its horizons with each passing day. Take, for instance, drone photography or virtual tours. The digital world is continuously changing the way we move, travel, stay and see places.
“Analog is more beautiful than digital, really, but we go for comfort!”
– Anton Corbijn
Digitization has opened doors for the new avenues. It is no longer limited to making the customer interaction easier or cheaper. It is, in fact, a platform for promotions, sales, lead generation and for elevating the market shares.
Here’s a look at the key travel trends impacting the digital experience in 2016 and beyond:
The advent of virtual-reality lets you see the world from the armchair and makes you feel the presence through a real-like simulated environment. These virtual tours instill a desire to travel and create excitement in travelers. The VR tours of a hotel or a destination can really ignite the spark to visit the place. The VR technology is going to go beyond the limits and will attempt to provide a more immersive experience. Virtual-travel agent is the new ‘it’ thing. You can book a flight ticket or look for the hotel choices in a particular destination by placing a request to your virtual travel agent and he will do the needful for you. It follows the same rules of VR and is expected to make a mark post-2016.
