Travel Apps – Thematic Research

Travel apps allow companies to offer a more convenient service, which often saves both time and money for consumers. When looking specifically at OTAs (online travel agencies), the most successful companies in this sub-sector give little reason for customers to shop elsewhere when purchasing the main services and products that create a domestic or international trip. Acting as a ‘one-stop shop’, app-focused providers allow customers to book flights and accommodation, rent a car, and arrange attraction experiences all in one place.

Additionally, the company provides customers with special ‘mobile-only’ deals to drive app usage and offer value for money. By saving customers time and money through app technology, online providers increase their chances of creating repeat business, with loyalty programs often being integrated into mobile apps to encourage ongoing engagement. The Travel Apps thematic research report takes an in-depth look at the use of app technology in travel and tourism.

What are the value chains in the travel apps market?

The value chains in the travel apps market are intermediaries, transportation, lodging, destination, and travel services. The main type of travel intermediary that places the highest importance on its app offering is the OTA sub-sector. All major OTAs rely heavily on their apps for booking generation. Moreover, it is now common for companies in the airline, road, rail, and rental transportation sectors to now have their own apps that offer convenience for customers. The hotel and cruise sectors are continuing to place an increased amount of importance on their app offerings.

The private attraction sector and mainly the public DMO sector utilize travel apps to engage with customers and visitors. While the attraction sector generally has a much more advanced travel app offering, many DMOs are starting to realize the importance of offering an easy-to-use and innovative app to enhance tourist experiences. Travel apps enhance business and leisure trips through the provision of services that save time and money.
