As we become more connected, the travel industry is being connected into one Autonomous Smart Travel Ecosystem where companies are supporting and collaborating with each other towards improving the customers experiences.
Recently I went on a tour to Africa, I booked through an agency and I was able to connected to a flight to Kenya, Africa, from there the tour agent booked a connecting Taxi to my Hotel where I was to be picked by the Safari Tour Van. It was an amazing experience but, on my journey, I face several challenges which included: A hefty fee I had to pay the third pay for connection to the services offered, truly speaking I didn’t trust the travel agent to honor my requests since I was dealing with someone I don’t know and could not verify his reputation and no reviews were available. There was a miscommunication between the travel agent and the Taxi Driver who was to pick me from the airport and I had to delay as I waited for another arrangement to be made.
I was lucky on my tour to Africa, I met a stranded Canadian in the hotel I was staying and he told me his travel agent had vanished without paying his returning ticked and he was waiting for his family and friends to send money for another ticket.
The collaboration of Travel agencies across the globe is a good businesses model that has improved how we travel, but there is a need to improve the processes and also eliminate the need of third parties who inflate the costs and operational risks and pass them to the traveler.
One of the companies using the power of blockchain technology towards solving the problems I encountered is Further Network, the projects aims to improve the payment and settlement solutions to allow the travel agencies to interact and transact in a secure, instill confidence and improve the travel experience of any traveler in the globe and also improve their operational processes.
