Today, online reputation is essential for any business. The highly competitive travel industry needs it more as digital-savvy customers seek info on the internet. The target audience often needs details like the best hotels under their budget, new food items to try, shopping centers to visit, best transportation mode, etc. The clients for travel agencies have diverse backgrounds, and through websites and apps, you can provide content relevant to each of them.Nothing can match the high-quality videos and live reviews of fellow travelers directly from the vacation spot. Thus, web portals are the first place of interaction for prospective clients. The website needs to be appealing and meeting the audience's requirements to appear on the first page of the search engine. It is worthy to hire SEO experts to reap the benefits of being at the top of the result page. Below, we discuss the advantages in detail. Get The Benefits Of Organic Lead GenerationThe search engines provide the best business option to the customers. Thus, to be among the top 10 on the search engine result pages is an indicator of excellent service. It implies you deliver what you promise. Therefore, SEO is a must for building trust and reputation. People come to the website on their own, and you need not force them or attract them. They have faith in your service and consider the pricing to be fairer.Hiring an SEO agency with sufficient experience and name can help you increase exposure. SEO experts with vast experience can help you get high-quality white label backlinks. They have connections with clients in the allied industries. Transparent and genuine backlinks from high-profile companies can attract new customers. Help In Understanding And Better Serving The CustomerAn SEO expert can help you reach and understand the target audience. They come up with the right keywords that can be location-specific and business-specific. So, the customers know what you do and get the required information too. Seo services study user browsing patterns and ensure that the desired messages and info reach the users at the right time. After experiencing the promptness and responsiveness, the users start to trust your services. Moreover, SEO agencies also take care of your social media engagements. Thus, hiring SEO services aid in attracting a new audience and making them loyal.  A Cost-effective Way To Increase ExposureWith SEO, a business can increase the traffic to the website. One gets qualified leads who are already in search of a similar product or service. Thus, the conversion rate is higher. Moreover, it is possible to measure the marketing metrics at a granular level. In the globalized world, occupying top positions on the search engine results page lets you reach a larger audience worldwide. Thus, people sitting in an Asian country can consult a foreign travel agency in the USA and get localized information. SEO helps you to reach genuinely interested customers. It saves your time and marketing efforts. You can conduct email campaigns, offer discounts to the niche group. Even for offline marketing, one need not waste resources as you already know the buyer personas.   Make Regular Web AuditsAn SEO expert knows that attracting customers alone is not sufficient. One has to engage and convince the visitor. And, these are feasible when the SEO experts conduct regular web audits. They determine the usability factor for the site. SEO companies ensure that the right content with appropriate visuals is available on the right page. They take care of all the details like font size, background color, video play options, etc. Navigability and adaptability in both mobile and desktop are absolute for modern tourists. You cannot afford to have a broken link or refer links to unrelated sites.  Enhance Your CompetitivenessToday, we have travel bloggers who give their personal travel experiences in detail. They can be present in various media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. Then there are websites and channels dedicated to tourism. With different options for traveling, lodging, etc., the consumer gets confused too. Thus to gain customers' attention is an uphill task. SEO is a slow and steady process to bring genuine leads to the site. It requires a navigable site having fast loading speed and great content. The search engines also look for user reviews and social media engagements. Also, it is necessary to give up-to-date information. Wrong info can lead to penalization by the search engines. Thus, efforts for SEO are equivalent to enhancing your company and lead to business growth.  Final ThoughtsToday, the first step in building a travel agency is to have an SEO expert in the team. A new venture can start bang on with the right online presence. Those running the business in the traditional offline way have to up their digital ground. And hiring an SEO expert is the right way to do the same. They help you put the business in front of people looking for the services that you offer.

How To Get an Airline Approval to Travel with Your Pet?

For the last two years, travel restrictions have been on and off across the globe. But now, with the knots of the pandemic losing up worldwide, people have started traveling fearlessly. Air travel is a top-notch choice for travelers when traveling abroad. Not only do travelers prefer airways for reducing their travel time but also for the fact that they allow pets to travel along. While you can take your pets with you to the plane, it has rules, regulations, and paperwork to follow. In this guide, we have accumulated everything for you. Right from how to get an airline's approval to booking a flight, from the fare to paperwork, we have covered it all.  Let's roll in! Let's talk about some fact-based realities first. Different airlines have a disparate set of rules and charges for bringing pets along. So before knowing the criteria of pet travel, it isn't possible to get approval from an airline. Below five points are more of a stepwise process to follow to get an airline approval to travel with a pet concerning recent real-life scenarios.  1. Know the NeedDo you really think it’s necessary to carry your pet with you on the trip? Ask this question to yourself before kickstarting the process of airline approval for your pet. Why? It's hard on your pets (yes, more than you) to take the air pressure, be in loud sounds, flooding lights, zillions of heads, and changes in the cabin temperature. Ideally, if you are moving out permanently or going on a journey for at least two to four weeks, then only you should think of taking your pet with you. In the other scenarios, you should keep your dog at your house with a dog-sitter or ask a friend for help.  2. What's Your Dog Size?Almost all global airlines give you two options for carrying pets along. You can either;Carry-on, orCargoMoreover, the choice out of these two depends on your dog size. If your dog size is small, especially the one that can fit in a dog carrier, you can carry him in the cabin under the seat. In case your breed is a mammoth to fit in, airlines will transport them with other cargo. (Ouch, that hurts, isn't it?) Imagining your pets in cargo is a terrible thing. Not all experiences are bad, but a few horrible stories say pet cargo equals no compassion. Therefore, check on different airlines for their current carry-on and cargo policies before buying a flight ticket.  3. Invest in The Right Pet CarrierA Pet carrier or crate is necessary no matter which airlines you are traveling with your furry friend. The International Air Transport Association has formed guidelines for pet carriers that most airlines follow across the world. Investing in airline-approved travel dog carriers can make the process of getting pet travel approval hassle-free. While looking for pet carriers, you should check if the carrier is;DurableLeak-proof at the bottomVentilatedStrong handledIt's the minimum you should do for your dogs. Also, slap a label on the crate or carrier indicating there's a living creature inside. Below it, paste your name and contact details to ensure that airlines reach out to you if any incidents happen with your pets during the air travel.  4. Get Done with Your Pet's Health CheckKnowing that your pet is fit and fine from a vet is super important these days. Many airlines demand a health certificate of pets before issuing a travel pass in their names. The thing is, pet immunizations change within 30 days. Hence, you should get done with your pet's health check and flight booking both within 30 days. After COVID-19, a few airlines allow health certificates no less than ten days old. If your trip is lengthy, you have to schedule a vet test during your stay to ensure trouble-free air travel for your pet while meeting health standards.  5. Research the Airlines, Know the Rules, and Reserve the Flight  After knowing all these factors, you should research the airlines that allow your pet breed to travel by air. Every airline has tons of rules and regulations for making pets' air travel possible. So, go through every guideline in detail and move towards reserving a flight of pet-friendly airlines. You might want to prefer non-stop flights instead of connected flights when you're with your pet.  Plus, avoid flying during holidays as airports run busy and would compromise on taking care of your pet. Above all, stay in touch with your airlines to know everything about pet travel. Some airlines have a limited spacing for pets. So, ask them for availability before booking tickets. Keep all things in mind and act wisely.  RecapWe can understand that the thought of leaving behind your lovely pet bums you out. But, in reality, taking them on a trip and that too by air requires many guidelines to follow and measures to take. Knowing the dog size and breed, having a perfect pet carrier, and familiarity with pet travel guidelines could get you airline approval to travel with your pet trouble-free.

The Importance of Cybersecurity in the Tourism Industry

Booking flights and hotels for vacations or business trips is something people do as part of the normal course of their lives. What they don’t realize is that the tourism industry has some of the highest number of security breaches. Think about it: when you book that flight or reserve a room at a hotel, you use either your personal or corporate credit cards to pay for them. When buying your tickets, you put in personal information that could be stolen and used by hackers to steal your identity. The amount of sensitive, personal data that hotels and travel companies keep in their databases makes them a prime target for cyber criminals. That is why one of the areas that these companies need to focus on is protecting client’s data. Cybersecurity is something that players in the hospitality industry need in order to protect their clients.  What is cybersecurity?Cybersecurity is keeping your computer networks secure from data breaches, theft, misdirection of service, and damage to both software and hardware. Cyber criminals target industries that hold sensitive data that they could exploit for gains. Cybersecurity has several common categories:Network security. This refers to the protection of your computer networks from malicious attacks, either internal or external. One example of network security is your network firewall. This is basically a gate that stops malware and other suspicious activities and untrusted networks from breaching your network while allowing authorized users entry into your secured network.  Information security. This refers to protecting data privacy. Whether customer data or company data, information security keeps all manner of data secure and accessible only to those that have clearance to do so. Operational security. This encompasses all internal cybersecurity. From granting access to employees to data retention and destroying data all in accordance with local and international regulations, whichever applies. This includes training and educating employees on the risks of data breaches and the importance of keeping data secure.  Common types of cyberattacks in the tourism industry and how to protect your organizationPhishingThis is perhaps the most common scam of them all. Phishing emails often disguise themselves as promotional emails, news emails, sometimes even emails from your bank asking you to change your password and providing you with a link where you can change it. Cyber criminals have learned to mask these emails to make them look legit. As people become more aware of this modus operandi, the people behind them evolve their attacks. There are two general types of phishing attacks: whaling and spear phishing.  Whaling phishing. Usually targets individuals like C-level managers or the “big fish” in companies. Hence, the name: whaling. The aim is to steal money or sensitive data. Spear phishing. This targets individuals lower on the totem pole. The main idea is to breach the company by getting a particular employee to click a link that would give the criminal access to the company's systems. There may be other types of phishing, but these two are the most common in the hospitality industry.  How to protect your company:Educate your employees. Make them aware of what phishing emails could look like. Ensure that they check the sender’s email address and scrutinize it. Make employees use secure passwords that no one else has access to.  Install and update security software. This is the first line of defense against phishing attacks. Spam and web filters, antivirus software, and firewalls are all part of security software that protects your company from being breached.  Back up your data. To prevent data loss, constantly back up your data so that it can be recovered in case of emergencies. Distributed denial of service or DDoS attacksCyber criminals love using DDoS attacks to disrupt their target hotel’s servers by flooding them with a sudden heavy influx of internet traffic. This will bring the target’s server down, disrupting their system to the point of grounding all services to a halt. This is done all in the name of money.  How to protect your company:Early identification helps. You can stop a DDoS attack on its tracks if you catch it on time.  Invest in a good anti-DDoS service. You can call them in case of an attack. Or call your ISP service provider.  Have a plan ready. Don’t wait for an attack to happen. You need to have a plan in place for any type of cyberattack against your networks.  Malware and ransomwareThese are malicious software that can corrupt your computer or access data and hold it for ransom. These are used to spy or destroy data and install more infectious malware into your system.  How to protect your company:Install anti-malware. This is your first line of defense against malware and ransomware attacks. Keep systems updated. Most updates include security patches that help keep malicious software out. Ensure that flash drives are malware-free. Some companies even prohibit the use of flash drives to prevent any chances of having their systems infected with malware.  Take awayCybersecurity is an integral part of the tourism industry. There are ways to prevent cyberattacks as long as both employers and employees are educated, the right security systems are in place, and all systems are up-to-date.

How To Increase Your Market And Be An Affiliated Travel Agency?

Right from booking air tickets, hotel rooms, and rental cars to help travelers in transporting. With growing trends of online transactions, travel agencies have a massive scope of work.

Technology has helped many sectors, including the travel industry. With a winning website, loud-speaking social media handles, and killer content, any travel agency can rule the world! Follow the piece to discover how to increase your market and be an affiliated travel agency.  1. By Upselling Products Offering more products and experience can go a long way when you are a travel agency with more significant goals. When a customer hires you for a trip, look for what they want more. For example, if a couple books a seven-day trip to Italy, suggest some additional to-dos. Besides their regular itinerary, guide them with some excellent romantic date restaurants where they can sip wine together.  Perhaps, you can give them details of local tour operators who arrange telescope viewing nights. If they plan a road trip for a day or two, you can offer them rented cars with ute tub rack and fuel-up tanks. Offering additional products on top of the package can help you win customer's confidence and get more prospects. You just need to explore your customer's desires, and you will ace the game. 2. By Leveraging Social MediaNo matter what age group, all travelers use social media networks today. There they talk about their trip experiences, travel products, personal preferences, and agency feedback. As a travel agency, you can make the most out of your social media handles. By posting relevant content related to travel deals, industry news, packing tips, destination highlights, and holiday posts on your social media, you can inspire your followers or invite new followers. Also, through social media, you can engage in affiliate marketing with other travel agencies and create tailor-made trips and vacations for your clients.  3. By Asking For ReferralsWord of mouth is the best marketing method, revenue generator, and sales booster. Lets understand it with two scenarios:Scenario 1 - You promote your travel products & services, andScenario 2 - A customer enrolled for one of your trips in the past referring your agency to someoneWhat's more impactful? We know the answer already. The customer referral program works wonders for a travel agency when it comes to increasing the market presence. These referral programs create a reputation and trust among the customers, and your agency gets likely to be preferred more. For ensuring double effectiveness of referral programs, send gift cards to everyone who refers to you or give them an additional discount on the next trip they book with you. 4. By Organizing Multiple ContestsOrganizing contests is one of the most used techniques by travel agencies to spread the word about them far wide. Who would not want to win something free, whether it be a flight ticket, hotel stay, cruise tour, or passes to a theme park? Hosting travel contests through your agency will help you in audience engagement and reputation building. You can create a hashtag on Instagram and ask your followers to buzz about it everywhere. This way, you can market your agency, increase your followers, invite new prospects, and become famous.  5. By Doing Effective Email MarketingMost of the present-day travel agencies use email as an influential marketing tool. Despite social media marketing and other fancy marketing tactics, email marketing has remained influential for direct communication with customers and will always be.  Through emails, not only can you convey essential updates about your travel agency but also generate leads. For this, you can start a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly email newsletter. Keep the content straight, to the point, fact-checked, engaging, and up-to-date. Smartly attach summer holiday packs, couple deals, season trips to get more customers at the end of the email.  6. By Creating a Stellar Website Nothing but the website of your travel agency helps the most when increasing the market presence. Take an example of any travel agency mammoth - Expedia, MakeMyTrip, LonelyPlanet, or TravelTriangle, everyone features a brilliant website. A user-friendly, mobile-friendly, and responsive website can rank well on Google, drive in organic traffic, and help you boost sales. You can show pictures, publish blogs, upload videos, insert travel products, mention your travel services, and connect with your potential customers through an attractive website.  7. By Delving Into Strategic PartnershipsThe strategic partnership means creating a win-win situation for you and the other business you have collaborated with. In the travel industry, a strategic partnership example could be - A trekking agency having an arrangement with the campsite to offer a stay to the trekkers at a discounted price.  Being a travel agency, you should get involved in not many but a few strategic alliances to increase your yearly revenues fast.  ConclusionTo make your travel agency run successfully, keeping in contact with the past customers and finding new ones is equally essential. For this, these seven little hacks will be of great use. Remember, you should be regular, on time, and ready with a plan to market your travel agency well. Always be creative in your marketing efforts to pull the attention of the global travel audience.

According to some surveys on travelers, there's a shift in how people like to book their vacations. Some prefer to do it online, while others want to use the traditional method. Travelers also prefer different benefits and amenities that they want with their reservation from things like entertainment, accommodations, and meals. Travel agencies need to cater to these needs, or they'll lose their customer base.Other types of businesses make customers happy even if they don't give them what they want by offering something in return.

An Online Travel Agency (OTA) is an online middleman between the traveler and vendors, connecting them with travel products offered by different vendors. OTA's typically sell airline tickets, hotel rooms, tours, or cruise line tickets as well as car rentals but sometimes include buses to shuttle travelers from place to place if necessary. OTAs play the main role in facilitating connections while also making sure both parties involved get what they want out of the transaction by providing transparency, so no one gets ripped off!1. Web user interface for travelers and travel agents.The most frustrating thing about traveling is trying to find the best deal on flights and accommodations. An online travel agency should own a Web interface that their customers can search for available flights, hotels, and other items.

Supplier interface or Supplier Back-end helps tourism companies create and manage their accounts; they can control the inventory, organize different travel products, get payments, and manage different rates.An Online Travel Agency administers the supplier Back-End, controls all deals, and shows them to travelers through the web user interface. OTA administrators Back-EndThe most important thing is the Administrator Back-End!The platform administrators should be able to manage the accounts of tourism businesses and travelers. They also need to manage inventory, rates, availability of travel products, and payments. Connecting with Application Programming InterfaceIn addition to traditional web-based services, online travel businesses are connecting with many new technologies.Connecting with the Application Programing interface (APIs) lets travelers search and book travel from their favorite booking engines using a wide variety of ways and options.Online travel businesses can connect with their partner hotels' Central Reservation Systems, Amadeus CRS, Galileo CRS, and Sabre.

Why travel agencies fail during the covid-19

Everything in the world gets affected due to Covid-19 exposure. The pandemic has changed everything in a way that the things that were at their peak are now getting failure vastly. The countries all over the world are confused about what to do to bring the lives in the norms from this exposure. The very famous countries regarding food, beauty, and tourism also failed to get any strategy to increase their economy again. The countries are working on vaccines day and night in order to bring the lives to norms. Still, it would not be possible in all economic factors, whether economic and corporate businesses or travel agencies. The travel agencies are in depression due to Covid-19. The economic rate of the travel agencies is decreasing to 58%, according to the U.S Travel agency. Due to this reason, countries are not allowing people from other countries to come to live or instead enjoy themselves. Everyone is uncertain about the situation and wants to be at home to be safe and secure, but for how long? People are getting frustrated for two years; they want to live their lives the way they lived before. Businesses are also getting affected by this pandemic. This pandemic has created a depression in all industries, and states are working on solutions to gain control over this pandemic. Each country is busy saving its people to its fullest. Travel agencies could not develop more until this Covid-19 exposure gone as agencies are strictly prohibited from following rules wherever they are going, and it is decreasing the economy accordingly.   Impact of COVID-19 on Travel AgencyThe travel agency business is the one that was growing economically very fast before COVID-19 exposure. But with this COVID-19 pandemic, everything in the world suffers the way travel agencies suffer. This is affecting the travel agency business, and the economic progress and growth of the country as tourism is the most significant factor in the country's development. The pandemic affects the country's major economy, from the airlines not successfully developing to the hotels closed. The countries worldwide following the lockdown to prevent the COVID-19 spread, which results in closing the flights, hotels, unique places to enjoy, and all. This is somewhat necessary as well to avoid this virus expand across the globe, but the travel agencies are suffering the most in this whole restriction process. We can agree on the fact that COVID-19 has failed the development in the field of travel agency and whether the economy of the travel agency will continue to grow after post-COVID-19. Due to Covid-19, from 2020, the airlines are getting failed in the growth, as the people are scared of traveling from one place to another. Many employees are jobless in these fields as there is no way of development going on. If we talk about travel agencies, they are not investing in buying tickets to the airlines as it is risky at this time. People are more worried about their health instead of exploring new places. So the travel agencies are not making any risky investments. This directly impacts the airlines, when there are no people to travel through their planes, how it would be possible for them to grow. The countries are also not allowing airlines to start working the same way they were working before this pandemic. So this exposure is affecting airlines business as well, and becoming the main reason for not getting development. The travel agencies, airplanes are not getting success during this COVID-19 pandemic in the same way tourism is also getting affected by this. The countries have closed their tourism to come and explore beautiful places worldwide because of this pandemic. In resulting the tourism is also failed, and the country's tourism development is directly connected to economic growth. Therefore, due to pandemics, airlines, travel agencies, and tourism businesses are failed in these two years and decreasing the development of these businesses day by day. Improvement in the businessNo one knows how long Covid-19 will impact the businesses and when the travel agencies will start developing the way they were before. But there is some hope that some consolidations are working to bring development to this business. The fact is coronavirus has impacted the travel agencies, and it is the main reason for the crisis of this business. Travel agencies are only thinking of developing their business and make it as same as it was before. People all over the world are also afraid of traveling and buying tickets to enjoy themselves because the whole world is suffering from this pandemic. Therefore, any marketing strategy could not be able to work at this time. Travel Agencies have to work on the business by paying suppliers such as airlines, hotels, resorts, and rental cars. In this way, this industry could grow a little and create an impact on the development. Taking a risk in the travel agency business is essential in this COVID-19 era by buying airline tickets and investing in hotels and rental cars. Still, payment could be made through the card so that if the strategy doesn't work, the agents can refund money from the suppliers. The government should plan out some strategy in order to boost the economy of travel agency businesses. The Future of the businessNowadays, the outlook of travel agencies is uncertain. No one knows what this industry would have to go through in order to get back into its booming business. According to the research, 80% of tourism has been hit due to pandemic, which means the travel agencies are also going in a significant loss. Countries worldwide are working hard to develop any strategy to grow this business again as it is affecting the countries a lot. The Covid-19 vaccines have increased the hopes of these businesses. After getting vaccinated, people are somewhat ready to come in the norms. In this way, these businesses will also start getting developed. But whether after getting vaccinated, everything will get normal? This is the question every state is thinking about. There is another excellent tip the travel agencies are working on is communicating to the visitors and telling them everything crystal and clear. In this way, those travel agencies are getting successful and going to new heights. So far, no one knows when this pandemic will end from the globe, o taking some strategies will help traveling agencies improve their business. Giving clear guidance to the traveler will help traveling agencies to grow because the visitors and travelers are uncertain about the situation they are going through. They are scared whether they will reach their homes safely or will be in a problem with the lockdown of the area. The travel agencies should work on the customers by providing them information online about the places they love to go to and gaining their confidence. The travel agencies can gain confidence by providing them health and travel insurance, and the place they are talking to them is safe and will they enjoy there to the fullest without any fear of getting affected by COVID-19. The travel agency should aim to assure the travelers that they are going with high-quality safety and precautions. The success of travel agencies can be defined by how they ensure the health and safety of their travelers during the trip, which is the only opportunity for a travel agency to grow and sustain its business in this pandemic.  ConclusionWe could not deny the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic decreases the development and growth of travel agencies. Still, the country's government should take steps in order to promote travel agencies and tourism to increase the revenue of these businesses. Various countries have already taken the initiative to grow and boost their tourism, which would help them develop economic growth. Providing travel agencies with the information will help in gaining tourists, and in this way, travel agencies, tourism, and airline businesses automatically get success. When the travel agencies provide accurate information and guidelines to the tourist, it will help them feel certain and safe, and they will start traveling and come to the norms. As a result, the economic growth of the country would be increase. Firstly, working on domestic tourism will help get the guidelines for how to take on with international tourism. The countries should start working on domestic tourism. The government should also inform travel agencies to avoid crowded places and big gatherings to prevent this virus from spreading. When the travel agencies start working on the government guidelines and policies, the people feel comfortable in traveling, and in this way, they book their tickets for different destinations. This would help airlines business as well due to the fact the people will go to their destination through the airlines. Airlines should also follow all the country's safety precautions to rest assured that the tourists feel comfortable. In this way, the country's tourism will be successfully opened, and the company's economic growth will increase gradually.

How to Sell Tours Online

PHP travels is unique in this required which provides an online portal to travel agency for tours which assist them to sell their packages to its customers online for B2B and B2C businesses.PHP Travels can help you more productively. It can help you reach maximum people. So, if youre planning to sell tours online then PHPTRAVELS is the best platform. Its one of the worlds largest online travel portals, which supports people for selling tours online.The question that arises is how can you stand out? Where should you designate your resources? Lets check out some of the best advertising channels for tour operators.What are the promotion platforms for tour operators to sell tours online?Before choosing your channels, its essential to comprehend how your customers tend to buy and the places where they obtain information. You probably have a great idea about this already but if you dont ask how they found out about your tour.That said, there are some obvious platforms you should reconsider. Below is an overview of the most efficient channels for selling tours online:Online Travel Agencies (OTAs)OTAs sum thousands of offers in one place so consumers can filter and compare travel products on a single website. Therefore, sites like Viator and GetYourGuide are extremely familiar with tourists and flourish millions of monthly visits.Of course, gaining access to them comes at a price OTAs typically charge commission fees between 15% and 30% of your ticket price. And they usually ask you to provide your lowest price so people buy through their program instead of your website or offline channels.As such, OTAs are a great option in two specific cases:1) You need to fill out your capacity as your costs dont progress with each additional customer (e.g. filling out bus seats).2) You are just starting and need to boost awareness of your tour even if you sacrifice part of your profit.So its usually best to prioritize your direct channels over OTAs but reconsider getting listed with a few of them, particularly to sell last-minute tickets that would otherwise go to dissipate.Social mediaTo be fair, people are normally NOT in buying mode when browsing their Facebook or Instagram feed. However, social networks are good places to build knowledge of your tour and work well as referral sources when your current customers tag themselves and upload photos. Also, advertising on sites like Facebook is highly customizable based on your customers location and interests, making it reasonable to show your offers to a very targeted audience.While they are not as effective (or cheap) as they used to be, social networks like Facebook are deserving testing as an effective channel for your offers.GoogleTheres a lot you can do about it including creating important content and paying for search ads.While these tactics are helpful, big OTAs and TripAdvisor normally control search results and youll need to get very particular if you want a chance of reaching your target audience.However, theres one completely free and very effective service to utilize the power of Google search Google My Business.If youre not already using this, your tour will not show up on Google Maps hence you will lose out on possible customers who search for terms like best tours in [your city].Overall, Google should be a big part of your marketing strategy and one great place to start is a professional listing on Google My Business.TripAdvisorYoure probably getting much of your business from TripAdvisor already but some things can help you make even bigger use of it: Understanding the TripAdvisor algorithm: your listing is more likely to show up large in the results when you have good reviews and plenty of them. But did you know you should also have a constant number of reviews? Also, TripAdvisor takes into account recency, meaning that listings with more recent reviews are prioritized over ones with older/infrequent reviews, everything else being equivalent.

Start-up Software Tools for Online Travel Agencies

The travel industry has shown a rapid progression over the past decade, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any sooner. If your travel agency is still relying on outdated spreadsheets and obsolete tools in this era, it’s high time you need to upgrade.  If you want your online travel agency to make the best out of the revolutionary trends, you have to switch towards a more rationalized approach. Modernize your website and focus on your core aptitudes.  There exists an excess of excellent tech tools in the market that can help you streamline operations, enhance your agency’s productivity, and improve your customer experience. This article covers all the essential tech tools for your online travel agency, so you can efficiently manage different operations of your business. Best Tech Tools for Online Travel Agencies From the management of tasks and operations, supervising expenses to the successful transfer of clients’ data into systems, a high-profile travel agency tends to have the most organized workflows. The efficiency of task management is what makes a travel agency gain success. So, let’s get started with the essential tech tools that every online travel agency should use. Online Booking Services The current pandemic has made people more conscious and most clients are now inclined towards the online booking. Therefore, it is now essential for OTAs to provide online booking services by investing in an efficient online booking engine so the clients can book directly on your website.  So, here is our recommendation for the best online booking engine you can choose for your agency.  PHPTRAVELS have stepped forward to support their partners from the travel industry by offering budget-friendly services. With the majority of the countries resuming their flight operations in the pandemic situation, many customers now prefer online booking.   PHPtravels booking engine enables the agencies to retail their live inventory to B2C clients and B2B agents. It’s the most suitable booking engine for OTAs that have their private inventory, as it permits you to assimilate your third-party XML providers to offer aggregated packages for flights, ground transportation, activities, and hotels on your webpage. It also allows you to sell your custom-made contracts including hotels, transport, activities, and tours on the same platform. It contains a potent back-office module so you can manage expenses, distributions, promotions, client data, shortlist agents, and get thorough business reports. PHPTravels supports multiple currencies and languages. White Label Solutions If your travel agency doesn’t own its inventory of flights, hotels, or other facilities, you can opt for a white label solution to trade your services to B2C customers online. A con of going for white labels is that the client is redirected to the white label provider’s webpage for reservation, and you lose control over the pricing and other features. The coupons and tickets don’t advertise or carry your brand name. So, here is what we recommend for white label solutions: Booking.com Small-business agencies that do not have the amenity of hotel inventory through APIs or direct contracts can link themselves with this Hotel Affiliate Package to retail hotel suites and rooms on their webpage. Assimilating this platform’s search widget into your webpage, allows you to enable your clients to pick from more than 2.5 million properties, and in return, you can earn a handsome commission on every booking through your website.  Travelpayouts This is another suitable choice for small travel agencies seeking the retail of flights and hotels via their website. You can assimilate Travelpayout’s widget into your website. This enables the clients to search live inventory on your site before being redirected for booking. Keep in mind that every online travel agency needs different integration. To know which integration technology suite your OTA the most, you can get connected with PHPTravels which is one of the best white label affiliate software providers we found out there.  CRM Tools If you have this misconception that the sole purpose of a CRM is to keep a record of the clients’ date of birth, you might need to reconsider. CRM is an important tool that allows   you to customize your services and makes it fairly easy
