Drones are incredible tools for capturing photography & video from a totally different perspective. The new DJI Mavic 2 Pro boasts a very powerful camera in a small, travel-friendly package.It’s finally here! The perfect flying camera that travel photographers like me have been dreaming of. A drone that’s both small enough to fold up into a backpack, yet powerful enough to capture high-end images and pristine 4k video.With the new Mavic 2 Pro, DJI has managed the impossible, sticking a giant 20mp, 1-inch sensor Hasselblad camera onto a compact drone full of high-tech sensors to avoid crashing into things.This new Mavic flies longer, faster, and farther than ever before too.

What is in for Travel insurance in 2020

Article | February 24, 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.

How Google Flights is shaking up the travel Industry

Article | February 24, 2020

The internet is littered with the bodies of companies unable to adapt when Big Tech moved to offer a service for free. Possibly the most famous example in tech history remains Microsoft’s decision in 1996 to give away its browser Internet Explorer bringing Netscape’s skyrocketing share price to an abrupt halt. The rest is history. Although Google’s recent decision to stop charging for leads to airlines and OTAs in Google Flights might look insignificant in comparison, it is sending shockwaves across the travel industry. To understand why, it is important to understand Google Flights’ weight in the airline distribution ecosystem.
