In order to make traveling easier and to give the travelers a trouble-free experience, it is important to target the mobile friendly audience. For that, nothing can be better than developing a foolproof mobile app on very successful technology platforms such as Android or iOS.
Also, the term 'travel' is associated with mobility. Wouldn't it be ironic if travel industry doesn't use mobile technology? Today, when smartphones are being used by zillions of people every day, this industry can lose an easy profit without mobile applications. If you still want to give tourism app development a second thought, then refer some stats below:
- Travel and tourism related mobile applications are one of the highest downloaded app categories
- 15% download the mobile apps for particularly planning the forthcoming vacations
- 29% of travelers use mobile apps to find the flight deals
- While travelling abroad, 85% of leisure travelers use their smartphones for getting the relevant route related details
- 30% of total travelers use various mobile apps to find the hotel deals for their accommodation
If you really want that your travelers have a good mobile app, then you can consider incorporating following attributes in your app:
- Maps, GPS services and route planning
- Ticket booking, Seat reservations
- Providing shopping for travel essentials (eCommerce module)
- Overseas banking
- Notifying about travel updates
- Notifying about contests, discounts and offer alerts
- List of nearby hotels and their Customer reviews
- Availability of public transport
- Photo gallery
- Sightseeing tours
- Info on domestic and international agencies
- Emergency calling
With the help of developing a powerful app, you can provide an easy and much simplified travel experience to your app users.
