The competitive world of vying for travel dollars is fiercer than ever. It is so easy for anyone to put together a decent travel itinerary without the help of anyone else, which cuts into the opportunity that travel companies have.
However, places like inCruises and other travel clubs are getting smarter to entice new clients with their services. To keep up with customer changes, here are a few ways the industry is evolving.
Traveling might seem easy to people going to places they have already been, but it becomes a huge burden to plan everything out in a brand new location. Many people are trying to become smarter with their time, and the convenience factor of having a travel club to rely on makes a lot of sense.
At inCruises it’s easy to plan your cruise vacation to any part of the world. In inCruises back-office Club, members can book any of 5500 cruises and get a fully organized vacation:
1) At the booking stage, Club Members can see a daily plan of the trip, where the liner stops, and choose the cabin type he/she prefers.
2) The booking already includes all nights in the chosen cabin, multiple restaurants, sport and entertainment activities on the liner.
The only extra decision that needs to be made is shore excursions which are now offered inside of the cruise booking package by some cruise lines.
Travel like a local
The early stages of travel clubs did not offer much variety. With the explosion of the internet, many travelers realized that they could find more variety just by doing their own legwork. The only way for travel clubs to keep up was to go above and beyond.
This is what many of the top options have done in today’s travel market. Clubs focus on activities, such as hidden gems around the area and any other interesting local connections. The goal is to never provide a cookie-cutter experience for travelers who are spending money to be part of a club. If travelers can purchase a package online in just a few clicks, it generally has only the basic options available.
Quality lodging and travel
A trip can easily be ruined if the lodging and travel are thrown off. What looks like something high-quality online can be much different in person, which is why a travel club can help with that. There are countless travel accommodations available, and quality travel clubs use only a select few to ensure that all customers are getting exactly what they are looking for.
Younger travelers understand that there are plenty of options out there, but sifting through all of them can be a tedious task. Airfare does not always have to be the best of the best, but it needs to be safe and fit within budgets. Travelers try to minimize what they take with them more than ever, so the need to travel big and spend money that way is changing. Instead, most would like to spend money on the experiences once arriving, instead of lodging and travel.
There are still a lot of changes to come for the travel industry as things play out post-COVID-19. The best ones will offer variety and, ultimately, survive. Those not willing to evolve will be lost in the shuffle, as traveling is becoming extremely competitive.
