Loyalty goes the extra mile in travel

Checking out of a hotel room or disembarking a plane used to have a certain finality to it. Travelers and brands parted ways at the end of the journey, and customer loyalty didn’t go beyond collecting miles or points. Now, reimagined travel experiences are extending customer engagement beyond the trips themselves. And the relationships between brands and travelers are no longer grounded on simple transactions.
