In the beginning, there was camping. Granted, our earliest ancestors just called it life, but as creature comforts have increased throughout history, the number of humans suited for such activity has declined. Rapidly.Then came glamping, the high-end version wherein plush queen-sized beds laden with downy comforters, A/C and space heaters – even entire sitting areas and bathrooms in some cases – were wedged into tent-like confines, complete with pillow chocolates and paved paths to the sauna.In the season of snow, however, the luxe-but-outdoorsy set have some truly stellar options – some primitive, some posh, but each offering picture-perfect, one-of-a-kind getaways only Queen Elsa could otherwise provide.

This too shall pass - but travel will need to adjust

Article | April 13, 2020

Just over a month ago, many of us sat in our offices, surrounded by colleagues, engaged in deep discussions about how best to leverage the increasing demand in travel this year. As per the World Tourism Organization's (UNWTO) forecasts from earlier this year, international tourist arrivals were expected to grow by 4% in 2020, which is not as great as the growth seen in 2017 (7%) and 2018 (6%), but it was still enough to continue fueling the tourism industry, which contributes to about 10.4% of the global GDP and approximately 319 million jobs. We were blissfully unaware of the looming threat of the COVID-19 global pandemic. In fact, several parts of the world failed to take notice of this crown-shaped virus that was about to bring everything to a grinding halt, until March 11, when the World Health Organization officially announced it as a pandemic.

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

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%.

The crisis is forcing companies to reevaluate many aspects of their financial plans for the foreseeable future and - particularly for those operating in the B2C space - to reassess their digital marketing strategies such as paid search.
