Introduction to Travel Technology

Travel Technology

The tourism industry has undergone a tremendous digital transformation over the last few years, allowing both travel providers and end customers to simplify the process of travel planning and booking, and to streamline operations. This has been possible through the power of Travel Technology.

Travel Technology is now an integral part of the travel industry and companies are collectively spending billions of dollars every year on travel technology solutions to capture the rapidly growing online travel market, which was expected to cross $800 billion in 2020.

Travel Technology forms the backbone of some of the largest travel companies in the world today, including Expedia Group, Booking Holdings, CWT, American Express Travel, Flight Centre Travel Group etc. Travel Technology has enabled startups like Uber, Airbnb, Klook and Getyourguide to disrupt the industry and revolutionize the way travel is booked and experienced.

It’s no wonder that travel firms of all shapes and sizes are realizing the value of travel technology - be it a brick-and-mortar travel agency or a global OTA, a small tours and activities provider or a large DMC, a mid-sized B2B agency or a large wholesaler.
