Mobile Apps are Key for Corporate Travel

Mobile Apps are Key for Corporate Travel

Liam Lonergan, Managing Director, Club Travel, said: “Future developments will inevitably revolve around mobile – travellers want to research, book and manage their itineraries on the go. They want recommendations on places to eat and public transport guides when they arrive. This does leave a gap for applications to target users who they see have spaces in their itineraries, whether that is for a hotel, a taxi or a flight. This could even be done within the travel programme so that only recommended vendors are put forward.

“Open booking will be a hot topic as more people demand the flexibility to book what they want on the go.”
