Customers are increasing their spending on experiences over things. With more of us choosing vacations over material goods, there is a prime opportunity for the travel industry to provide unique and personalised travel experiences that go beyond basic transportation and accommodation.

Unlike other forms of ancillary revenue (hotels, car hire), tickets can be sold to customers both travelling to a destination and also in their home market. Having in-demand event and attraction tickets as a product offering is an excellent way to engage with customers before, during, and in between trips.

The world’s leading travel brands have bigger customer databases than traditional ticket agencies. They can use their knowledge of customers’ travel dates, location, and demographics for better targeting and to create personalised purchase experiences — unlike the outdated, e-mail driven marketing traditionally used by agencies.
