From booking tickets to making payments, Blockchain technology enables users to seamlessly interact with processes associated with tourism and hospitality. Blockchain, owing to its transparent and immutable structure, makes way for reliable, safe transactions especially when it comes to payments. Winding Tree is one such organization that enables the process of flight ticket and hotel bookings by making use of a Blockchain platform. Usage of third party apps like Visa is completely eliminated because Blockchain facilitates the payment through cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum.
Be it public transport or private transport, Blockchain simplifies the payment processes by reducing time taken to complete the transaction. Without having the need to pay by cash, the amount can be directly deducted from the user’s crypto-wallet account.
Customer verification and authenticity is one of the most critical aspects of the Travel and Tourism industry. From check-in to immigration, there are multiple places where a consumer (here traveller) has to produce his/her identification. Thorough identification and verification has to be done at airports for security purposes to avoid illegal immigrants or the likewise. This eats up a lot of time of travellers as well as the authorities. By implementing a robust Blockchain platform with fingerprint scan and/or retina scan, the traveller can eliminate the process of producing documents to authorities every time. This significantly reduces the time spent at check-in, immigration, long queues etc.
Loss or misplacement of baggage is a common issue airports face in today’s time. This is caused due to humans handling luggage. There is always room for error when it comes to manual intervention in processes. Blockchain with AI and Blockchain with IoT can be used in such cases to detect the lost luggage. Sensors can be tagged to bags which will help track the exact location of the bags. Baggage information can be securely stored in a Blockchain ledger and lost bags can be returned to its user.
Like in any field, loyal and regular customers are rewarded in the Travel and Hospitality sector by offering them discounts and schemes. Customers can be given crypto tokens as rewards which can be used any time later for future digital transactions. By implementing such schemes, tourism companies earn lifelong customers who in turn increase their revenues.
Blockchain in Tourism can be used to maintain a ledger that stores authentic and true information, ratings and reviews about a company. By accessing this ledger, customers can have a fair idea about the authenticity and the position of the company. It helps them in coming up with the decision of whether to deal further with the company or not. Not all reviews that are present online today are genuine. It is very easy to post fake and incorrect reviews about any company online, due to which consumers can be easily misguided. Blockchain ensures that it provides rightful and real information about a company which users can look upto.
