Travel has been fundamentally changed by technology.
In previous years, people had to use the likes of a travel operator or agent in order to make a trip, many still use this type of advisory service however today travel is literally at our fingertips.
With the use of smartphones and tablets and the advancement of apps and web technology, we can book a flight in a matter of clicks. We can book accommodation in the same transaction and we can be vocal about our experiences before we even leave the flight or the accommodation.
Technology has empowered travellers and none more so than the millennial demographic. Millennials have grown up with accessible technology and in general expect information and movement instantaneously. They aren’t shy about complaining and expect a high level of service throughout their travel experience.
They are a different type of traveller and the tourism and hospitality industry has had to wake up to this.
