Features of an ideal travel app

How to build a travel app? Well, if you are considering building a travel app then you can incorporate the following features to enhance user friendliness and generate more traffic to your app.

Create individual profile – Make sure that your consumers have distinct profile. This will help both the admin and the consumer: whereas a user can obtain personalized information based on his or her search items, the admin can trace the number of users. 

But make sure to ask less information. This is a common human psychology: the less information you ask or the less time it takes to sign up, more people will create their profiles in your app. 

Also launch a social login system. While you can easily obtain user information from their social media site, your users can easily share your app in their social media account which will ensure the popularity of your app. 

However don’t set sign up procedure as mandatory. Consumers may choose to ignore the entire app even before checking it out. 

Push Notification – Push notification will help your consumers to obtain information about new tours, discount offers, seasonal price etc. It will also help your consumers to complete their purchase which they have added in their cart and forgot about it. 

Categorize distinct tours – You must categorize local and international tours and mention consecutive packages. In order to allure your customers you can even mention the previous price and then refer to the new discount price. 

Booking – Make sure that the booking bar is easy to use. Also categorize car rent, hotel booking or train/flight booking so that the consumers can easily select their preferable option. 

Document holder – Make a different section where the users can save all the required documents and tickets which will ensure a quick access. Also ensure that this section is available offline. In some places one may not get network coverage. The offline storage will help your users to access it even in such a crisis.

Make sure to create your travel app colourful and include mesmerizing or popular locations of the respective places. Also ensure to provide basic details of a certain place so that unaware people can know more about the tour.
