Article | February 25, 2020

To deliver the richer, more fulfilling experiences that travelers crave, travel brands depend on a growing cache of customer data. More data can mean more opportunities to deliver an elevated human experience, personalized to each traveler’s needs and wants. But many brands are opaque about just what data they are collecting, and customers often don’t have any way to know how it may be used, how well it is secured, and what, if any, control they have over their personal information. Hence, the trust that travelers place in the industry is at risk, which ultimately could impact their travel choices.

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.
