Travel Apps can Change our Lives
“Not all those who wander are lost”
There are many types of travelers in this world; some take a trip to visit places, some travel to seek adventure and some travel to discover themselves. The world, as we see today, has become more open. People from anywhere of the globe can contact people from the other side in a matter of few clicks and a common knowledge pool lets anyone share information anywhere, anytime.
Nowadays, people are willing to cross continents for their jobs, education, healthcare, tourism etc. With more travelling means and improved services, the dream of these people has come to reality. The different avenues and their competitiveness has provided not only a cost-efficient solution, but also ensured that there are tailor-made solutions required by the customer.
The world of apps thriving is no surprise; an app wakes up with you, moves around with you and sleeps with you. Creating apps that cater to the different demands that arise in due course of our day-to-day life has been ground-breaking and the extent to which apps have invaded and conquered our lives is astounding. Thinking of such large an opportunity as the travel industry, and given that the apps are leaving no stone (read industry) unturned, travel apps has become a must-have in many travelers’ backpack.
The advantage that is tagged to the travel industry is that almost all the users could become potential customers. Travel is not a service, it is a way of life; just like food. If you are creating a game, there might be people who may like it or not, but even before that, there might be a set of people who don’t play games at all. But that is not the case with travel. Travel is a means of connecting two points in life and people always flow from one point to another. This gives the travel industry tremendous opportunity, not to say that people often connect with more points between their source and destination point.
Gone are the days where people had to plan a travel months in advance; where people waited in long queues to obtain reservations; where people had to limit themselves with the choices because frankly there were not ways about getting to know about a place without actually going there. When Internet took the world by storm, people started to get great deal of information about different things they wanted, including the places they wished to visit. But apps extended this further and helped people make informed decisions on the go significantly cutting down the planning time, providing offers and deals, real-time comparison of price etc. Apps have made a lot of things in life easier, but travel apps in particular, has made a lot of ventures safer, cheaper and more enjoyable.
Travel apps enable us to review real user experiences, understand nuances that we might not have thought of in the first place and more importantly, the bottlenecks that we need to avoid. The pleasure of understanding what shop near the hotel I stay sells my favorite dish is a luxury that has been made affordable by these apps, and believe me, you have to experience it to understand.
So, why wait!
If you are into any travel industry or a provider of travel-related services, get yourself an app-grade and ensure that you are heard.
Well, if you are neither, pick an app and understand what you need even before you get there.
