With an old-timey feel, Havana’s atmospheric colonial streets have definitely seen better days, although this only adds to the charm.

How blockchain is reinventing travel loyalty programs for both brands and consumers

Article | February 28, 2020

According to the latest Bond Brand Loyalty Report, memberships across industries continue to rise and now average 14.8 per person. But - considering total global spend on loyalty programs is estimated to be $323 billion in 2019 – a more critical statistic is: on average people are active in less than half (6.7) of the programs they belong too. More often than not, loyalty programs do not drive loyal behavior. The travel sector has some of the lowest satisfaction rates, according to Bond’s survey of 55,000 consumers in more than 20 markets around the world. Only 37% of hotel loyalty members and 38% of car rental members say they are satisfied with their programs; airlines, meanwhile, fare slightly better at 42%.

Travel Trends 2020 — Technology

Article | February 28, 2020

Technology’s a double-edged sword, and it will just get sharper. On one hand, it’s wonderful to have a complete toolbox in one hand (camera, photo library and editor, tickets and itinerary, currency converter, maps and navigation) and access to the wider online world. On the other, it will become even more a DIY world. Not connecting to the cloud? Well you’ll have to Google the issue and fix that. Contacts not loading? Same. Check in online, get to the airport, fix your bag tags and put them on the belt. Tech will become better and more frustrating all at the same time in 2020 and beyond.

What is in for Travel insurance in 2020

Article | February 28, 2020

Why do we travel? For seeking thrill, joy, tranquillity, knowledge, satisfaction, company, solitude, pleasant or off-beat experiences – there are many answers to this question. None of these might be your reason to set off on a trip, while for some it may be all of these and more. While we can always agree to disagree, there is one thing that can be said with utmost certainty: nobody – without exception – hopes for a vacation punctuated with worries, problems, and unpleasant experiences. But the truth remains. No amount of meticulous planning that goes into preparing an itinerary can guarantee a trip that is entirely devoid of risks and worries. Sometimes a problem, or many, may arise due to various factors beyond anybody’s control, be it environmental, geopolitical, or even personal. Unforeseen personal issues notwithstanding, challenges may arise simply because of a combination of not-so-prudent decisions and bad luck.
