How has technology changed the way people travel?

April 10, 2018

Technology has advanced our world in ways we have yet to fully realise. Going from letters to having everything available in the palm of our hands, the tech world has revolutionised our own.

But how has technological advancement changed the way we travel?

For one thing it has meant that thesqua.re, a global serviced apartments provider, has been able to deliver exceptional properties across 5 continents, whilst generating in-depth guides and ebooks that members can glean to get all the info they need to make their trip a success.

Further changes are listed below:

Trips are more affordable

Comparison sites have enabled travellers to find the best prices for flights, rooms and so much more. Back in the old days, travellers had very little choice. Now though, they can save a lot thanks to all the apps and sites available in the palm of their hand.

Eco-friendlier

The rise of online check-ins and e-tickets have made it easier and safer for people to carry all their documents without having to print them all off –  mobile phones and tablets can keep tickets and reservation documents all in one place. Gone are the days of misplacing pieces of paper. Not only that, it will help save the planet.

Travel planning is a lot easier

From blogs and where-to-stay articles, travellers can now plan out their stay without getting stressed out. Technological change has brought travellers together on the web to share experiences and to offer substantial advice on how to properly enjoy trips all around the world.

Attractions can be found instantly

Tripadvisor has made it incredibly simple for travellers to find attractions, restaurants and everything else in their holiday location. With reviews from previous travellers, new adventurers can be rest assured of finding the next big experience in the palm of their hand.

Memories can be captured easily

Gone are the days of carrying around a bulky camera or video recorder, now you can do it all with your handheld device. Capture all the memories and experiences of your trip with the click of a button, and relive them with a simple scroll of your finger.

Connections can be kept

Forget jotting down the names and numbers of new friends and business colleagues on a mouldy piece of paper (which just so happens to get washed up with your jeans and trousers), you can now simply open up Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin and connect to them with ease. Making personal and corporate connections has never been easier.

Also, weary travellers with families back home never have to worry about staying apart ever again. Apps like Skype mean families can stay in touch no matter how many continents are separating them.
