The days of feeling sorry for the Travel Industry are almost over and it’s high time to be prepped up for a stronger than ever come back.

TravClan brings to you 5 ways to increase business in 2021:

1. Social Media Presence – Get It Right

The numbers say it all – 70% of people acquire vacation ideas from platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

You got to engage with your audience on these platforms through interactive content so that when they  think of a vacation, they think of you. From inspiring blogs and latest deals to the travel trends in Bollywood, do it all.

While millennials are the most avid vacation-goers, they are also the most difficult to please. To get that right, follow the Golden Rule – ‘Experiences over anything’. Sharing other customers’ travel experiences through videos and fun graphics on social media handles could be the trick here.

2. Website- Get It Running Smooth

One of the first things a potential customer would do when they get to know about your agency is ‘Google’ you. Here lies the perfect opportunity to make a bang-on first impression with your website. Make sure that it catches the eye of every visitor.

Adorn it with beautiful videos, slide shows and 360 degree virtual tours . You can also showcase your current and past itineraries while highlighting what you specialize in.

Not only the travel website should be visually appealing, it should be easy to use by people of all age brackets and allow  a simple, clean web-based interaction.

In other words, the web design should be responsive – one is capable of exhibiting optimal functionality across all spectrum of devices – desktop, laptop, tablet, and more.

3. Be Flexible – Like Never Before

Commitment issues with future travel plans was something never heard of before 2020. Now, customers getting cold-feet days before their trip is quite common given the prevalent health situation.

Subscribing to a flexible cancellation policy coupled with irresistible alternatives for re-booking can be your ultimate Savior. Customers get the right confidence boost to click ‘Book’, knowing that they can get a refund whenever they want.

Be your customer’s strongest support, providing honest guidance keeping his safety at utmost priority and delivering an experience they’ll never forget. Even, collecting feedback from customers can be really helpful.

4. Stay Updated – Know It All
