A responsive website is definitely an important aspect of your mobile strategy, but it's only the start of the mobile journey. Travelers find your responsive website during the dreaming and planning phase of their holiday, but it offers limited interaction and doesn't allow for authentic engagement with travelers, which is possible with an app. Instant messaging and app tools such as tick lists and an activity finder ensure strong brand awareness throughout the travel cycle.

Yes, if you're in the tourism industry and book services for tourists, the app is perfect for you. It works well for tour operators, travel agents, vehicle rental companies, activity providers and accommodation establishments such as hotels, resorts or lodges. If you're a restaurant, an activity provider or an attraction, you should feature on the app's 'Activity Finder' page where you'll display on a Google map when clients search for you whenever they are near you! The geolocation based search maps are excellent for in-trip bookings and planning.

The app is cleverly set up to feature your logo and contact details, and it enables your clients to 'interact' with your brand throughout the travel cycle. Offer your clients helpful mobile tools and stay top-of-mind before, during and after their trips. It is made up of three main sections - preparation phase, while they travel and after the holiday. Each section has different functions to choose from and it makes it a valuable tool for every business in the tourism industry.

The main purpose of the app is to stay connected to your clients during the preparation phase of their holiday, while they're on holiday and after their trip via a nifty feedback form.

There are a few 'build-an-app-in-3-easy-steps' solutions available but an app should be so much more than just a mobile version of your website or a rehash of your facebook posts. 

The development of an app that will be beneficial for your business and your clients can cost anything from US$20,000 to US$100,000, and in some cases even more. It takes loads of time and experience to make something that will bring returns and grow customer loyalty.

Using the GOTRVL app is just like having your own app, featuring your branding, your company details, specific functionality that suits your business and the ability to interact with your confirmed clients in a secure environment - all included in your GOTRVL membership. The app was designed specifically for the tourism industry by tourism professionals.

Also keep in mind that app updates are covered, and new functionality will be added when required.
