Travel Apps

The rapid development of social networking sites and the consequent need to be constantly connected, coupled with the technology boom in the mobile industry, it has become almost mandatory for any business to be active on mobile, and travel industry is not an exception.

The travel industry is facing a number of challenges today: There is fierce competition in the marketplace and businesses are struggling to produce innovative products that can increase their customer base. Also, with the passage of time, the need to adapt in to the mobilizing world is increasing at a staggering rate. As the world goes mobile, more and more consumers are using mobile devices to plan their tour itineraries, search for leisure and adventure activities and to get information about hot locations.

For businesses, it is worth emphasising a fact that is often not considered when deciding where to allocate app spend - tablets are rapidly replacing laptops and desktops in the home particularly for "fun" and "easy" tasks. As leisure travel surely falls into this category, designing an app for tablets might just be worth that added investment.

Many travel companies don’t want to hear that they need to invest money into yet another distribution and marketing channel, but quite simply, if your customer is searching for travel information online and your site is not optimized for mobile or you don’t have an app, then chances are they will find your competitors first.
