Article | March 3, 2020

In the past 24 months, the tours and activities sector has moved from, to borrow a Cinderella analogy, the cinders to the palace, where its untapped potential has moved into the sights of major travel retailers and investors. These retailers and investors, as we know, included Booking Holdings, Tripadvisor and SoftBank via their investments in Klook and GetYourGuide. These moves have led to lots of opportunities for operators and consumers alike, but, as always, change does not come without its casualties.

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

Article | March 3, 2020

According to the latest Bond Brand Loyalty Report, memberships across industries continue to rise and now average 14.8 per person.

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.
