Here’s why your travel company needs a mobile app

Here’s what makes apps so great.
Still not convinced?
Tourism mobile apps are crucial in today’s travel market, and there are plenty of stats to prove it
Most online traffic in the travel market comes from mobiles. In 2021, mobiles were responsible for around 60% of all online traffic in the travel segment.
Industry giants rely heavily on their apps — and for good reason. More than half of bookings on Booking.com are made via mobile devices, and around 80% of travelers use the app when researching a trip. Same goes for Airbnb — 58.6% of their overall bookings are made through the app.
66% of travelers never stop using or delete a travel app once they’ve downloaded it.
70% of US travelers prefer using their smartphone over their computer to manage travel plans, so they can receive booking updates.
We can build your perfect travel app
Our expert developers will create your custom app with features your customers will love.
Search is one of the core features of any travel application — it enables users to browse their options when it comes to flights, hotels, car rentals, and experiences. With the help of filters and personalized recommendations, an advanced search will help your customers find exactly what they’re looking for in seconds.
Custom itinerary builder
Allow your customers to build itineraries and curate their dream trips. Give them the ability to pick and choose destinations, trip duration, experiences and hotels, and combine that with a user-friendly interface and recommendation system to give them the control they want.
Speed up transactions and make customers’ lives easier by letting them book their trips straight from your app. Booking modules are a standard in today’s app market — so don’t give your customers reason to go elsewhere for a more convenient process.
A secure, reliable, and simple payment feature is a necessity for any modern app. Give your customers the freedom to pay directly from your app with their preferred method, from Apple Pay, to Google Pay, to Visa/Mastercard…
User profiles make interacting with an app even more convenient and allow you to offer personal discounts and loyalty programs. Customers can set up and manage their personal profiles within the app, save their preferences, view their purchase history, and store their payment details for later.
If you’re building an app, why not create a referral program and make the most of your app’s marketing capabilities? Incentivize existing customers to invite new users to your app in exchange for a reward and watch your audience expand.
Never underestimate the importance of notifications for both you and your customers. Not only do they remind travelers of your app and its usefulness, they keep users up to date with the latest deals, booking information, changes to flight status, and so on. We know how to build notifications with impact.
Giving customers an easy way to contact you is especially important for the travel industry. Create a simple contact module so customers can find your contact details and get in touch through your app, wherever they are in the world. This will go a long way in improving customer satisfaction.
Go one step further and add a chat function to your app. Give users immediate access to your customer support team, who can answer questions and provide information in-app. No more calls or emails (your team and your customers will thank you for it!). Customers can simply type their question and the conversation will begin.
Create a separate space within your app to showcase all of your special offers and hot deals. This will make it easier for customers to find and pick ones they like, and you can use it as an extra marketing tool to highlight exclusive discounts, promotions, and limited-time offers.

“After Zoftify relaunched the web app, we noticed an increase in orders and a significant drop in customer complaints. They treated the web app as if it was their own, coming up with new ideas to improve it further. They also ensured effective communication via Jira and Slack.”
