Why modern travellers don’t need a laptop

Think about it, you don’t take your laptop everywhere with you, do you? You take your phone.

And here’s why you don’t need anything else (even a laptop) to book your travel on the road.

There’s no doubt about it – travelling can be stressful. 

But thanks to the magical technology of mobile phones and apps, you can make it a whole lot easier for yourself.

Without lugging around your laptop.

In fact, with this particular app, you don’t even need to book or search on a laptop – you can do it all on your phone.

Amazing, right? And by everything, we really mean everything. 

The app in question? Mobile Traveller by Amadeus

On this baby, you can search, book and pay for flights, hotels, tours, activities, parking, airport transfers and anything else you might need to have a fab holiday.

Basically, you may as well throw your computer out now. 

This app is also perfect for travel agencies looking to move onto a mobile platform – you can stay connected with your customers 24/7 and offer them a 360-degree travel experience wherever they are in the world.

You’ll be way, way ahead of everyone else. Trust us. 

It can also reduce your operational costs; once on the app, travellers can search and make reservations themselves, which you’re then able to manage.

Plus, you can use the app to make cross-selling and up-selling a pinch, as well as promote special offers or last minute deals.

And for travellers? The app allows you to book anything and everything travel related, see your itinerary and receive real-time updates if anything changes.

Think weather notifications, flight cancellations or delays and much, much more.

The app even has a social media feature!

You’ll have access to over 200,000 hotel properties through regional aggregators, and other great air content, cars, activities and tours.

Plus a custom-designed user interface that will make swiping and your phone a whole lot easier than clicking away on a computer.

And don’t think you need to be online all the time either – the app offers offline payment options (like over the phone or in-store) and you can also access the app and stored itinerary information offline too. 

Did we mention the app comes in three languages and can be used on tablets as well as mobiles?

If you haven’t downloaded it yet, you’re already behind.
