It’s 2018 and the Travel App Economy is booming! But how can you get your travel agency on an app and start monetizing without the tech-induced headache of developing one yourself? We got you.
But first thing’s first, what are the benefits of a travel app? Well, there are a ton – for both agencies and travellers.
On travel apps, travellers can be notified whenever there’s itinerary changes or flight disruptions, and can have all of their travel info accessible in one easy to use place.
They can manage their trip themselves and have control of their own data. Some apps even offer social media access to keep in touch with friends and family whilst travelling!
If agencies use travel apps, their customers generally have a more enriched travel experience where they feel more empowered, by being able to control their own trip through an app on the go.
An agency can also use an app to draw in customers that would normally book online or without a travel agent – as an app is an easier way for travellers to manage an agent-made booking themselves whilst abroad.
And there’s one app that also allows agencies to co-brand themselves on it and lets travellers look, book and go. Plus it happens to be by one of the best technology travel brands around – Amadeus.
Welcome to Mobile Traveller by Amadeus, an app which will meet all your traveller’s needs from the start of their booking to the end of their trip and places your agency’s contact details on their app.
For many agencies, developing and running a reliable travel mobile app can be tough – both investment-wise and knowledge-wise. But now, Amadeus has made it simple and affordable, and will basically do all the work for you. Perfect, right?
Agencies can also provide their clients access to organised and reliable itinerary management services – all with their logo and contact details on display for relevant bookings and help.
They’ll also have access to a mobile friendly shopping experience for air, hotel, taxi, parking services and activities. Continued maintenance and enhancement of the Mobile Traveller by Amadeus app are all covered so travellers won’t miss a beat.
By subscribing to the app, agencies will get new features and content continuously delivered direct to travel clients through App Store updates – without any added effort. So what are you waiting for, travel agencies?
