Technology changed the way we book a flight, a room, access hotel services, are informed of daily events and seek advice to sightsee a city– Chatbots for the win!

Chatbots have become the perfect travel companion. Many hotels and flight companies already offer messaging options to their customers, either by giving the ability to text them through their own apps or establishing messaging channels like Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. But the real revolution is chatbots — they are becoming huge assets to this industry. Chatbots allow a person to interact with either a human or artificial intelligence via a chat interface. 

Here are some of the ways that chatbot is helping the travel industry:

  • Enhance customer engagement: Chatbot assists customer WHENEVER they require. It also provides multiple options to book your holidays and even send you an automated reminders.
  • Proficient customer services: Because it is a software tool so chatbot can provide solutions instantly to immediate problems. It supports customers irrespective of the timezone. By this way, travelers feel that someone is there for them to help them out from every problem anytime and anywhere.
  • Maximize your time: Chatbots can handle multiple queries at a time and saves your precious time.
  • Access to data: Chatbots is software that has a record of each of their communication with the users. Thus it can help companies to know better about their customer preferences, what actually they are seeking for, their purchase history, what’s trending in the market and can access to the chat history anytime so that they can refer their queries at any time whenever they want.

Electronic Payments made traveling safer and easier

Among the advantages of going cashless it is worth to highlight two of them: the convenience — there is no longer the need to carry a lot of cash, a couple of credit cards or even stay in the queue for ATM withdrawals. And lower risk — especially true while traveling abroad, where the loss of cash can cause a great inconvenience.

What’s else? Electronic Payment (or Digital Payment) makes it easier for travelers to spend. They spend more and they might otherwise, bolstering local economy.

Last but not least, Blockchain

Blockchain technology is in its initial stages, but it is clear that it will change many industries in radical ways, including travel – stability and security rank very highly. The decentralized nature of the blockchain means that information can never go ‘offline’ or be lost through accidental deletion or a malicious cyber attack, ensuring transactions are always traceable.

We are aiming to build an ecosystem based on this technology to help you maximize your travel experience.
