At the root of innovation are technology and the many ways it makes our lives easier. When it comes to travel, there are countless new ways that companies are making the experience more seamless, more enjoyable and less stressful. As we look toward 2023 as the Year of Travel, these are the technology trends to keep our eyes on.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven Solutions
AI-powered technologies like chatbots and virtual assistants are becoming increasingly popular in the travel industry. These solutions are being used to help customers make travel decisions, book flights, and more.
With the rise of online meeting/webinar services, consumers are used to having presentations done for them in the comfort of their home. LivePlanner is a new, interactive tool that is patent-pending from Cruise Planners that allows travel advisors to showcase various vacation options with images, videos, and more to assist their clients in real-time.
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
AR and VR technologies are being used to create immersive experiences for travelers. Companies are using these technologies to provide virtual tours, explore destinations, and even plan travel itineraries.
Blockchain technology is being used to create secure and transparent payment systems for travelers. This technology is also being used to store customer data and track luggage.
Mobile Applications for Travel Advisors
Mobile applications are becoming increasingly popular in the travel industry. From booking flights to checking in at airports, customers are using mobile applications to make their travel experience more efficient and convenient. Cruise Planners' award-winning CP Maxx Mobile allows clients to keep all their travel updates and reminders in one space.
Contactless payments are becoming increasingly popular with travelers, allowing them to pay for goods and services without having to use cash or cards. This technology is also beneficial to businesses, as they can process transactions quickly and securely.
