The travel industry has taken major hits in the last few years. What was once a thriving and robust global industry was shut down when the pandemic hit. Over time, as restrictions eased, we saw the industry start to crawl again, then stand up and walk. Today, travel seems ready to set into a full gallop, but the question remains: Is your travel business ready for this?
For the first time in decades, we might see demand start to outstrip supply in tourism and travel, and the businesses that win the most bookings will be those that set themselves apart from the pack.
Although another major lockdown in response to Covid-19 is unlikely, the travel industry would be remiss to forget the impact that the pandemic had on the general public. Many travelers are now far more aware of the risk of transmissible illnesses while traveling, and companies that take precautions will endear themselves to a large number of customers. Although airlines, cruise liners and hotels don’t need to go as far as making the travel experience restrictive, travelers will appreciate enhanced cleaning protocols or improved HVAC systems to make them feel safer while using your travel service.
