Online Travel Booking: Would you Rather Book In Person or Online?


It’s a simple yes/no question, but the answers seem to be causing controversy. Recently there have been bold claims travel agencies are becoming redundant in favour of online travel booking. Yet if you pop out to your local highstreet you’ll still see the likes of Thomas Cook and Trailfinders.

When you think about it, if you’re working 9-5, Monday to Friday do you really have time to go out and book a holiday? Surely online travel booking is much more appealing? It certainly seems that way for most, with over 45% of people now booking trips online – an increase of more than 10% in just four years. Research clearly suggests the presence of physical travel agencies are on their way out. Read on to find out how you can prevent loss of custom through the implementation of online travel booking software.
