Vacations are all fun and exciting..until it’s your business.
If it is, then it’s fun too, and a lot of constant worries regarding the management of hundreds of related aspects. With growth, the number of balls in the air increases in number too and so does the need for extra attention, extra efforts. However, in this digital era, there’s always an easier way of handling things.
That brings us to the star of this show, travel software development.

While every travel software solution has a separate feature requirement, just like every pizza (whether Italian or Chicago style) there’s the base recipe you must master first, there’s a set of functionalities which are a must & you can add niche ones on top of it (relax, our consultants are at disposal with that). And, from our experience of being the chosen travel software development company, we have compiled the following list of ‘miss-me-not’ features :

The best thing about going ‘custom’ with your travel software development approach is that your requirement drives the travel software solution’s build inside out. Sounds interesting? Sneak peek at what’s in store for whom :

Sounds like the pieces that can do just the right justice to your requirements?
The features may be different but the core purpose that the travel software solutions are expected to serve in general is simple - to automate processes as much as possible and get the best of cost & time benefits. Here’s a sneak peek of what we offer :
Quite evident from the name itself, online booking platforms help you manage all bookings under one platform, so you don’t have to browse through a stack of folders to get a specific booking ID or any related info. From hotels to flights, event passes to appointments, all bookings are streamlined for convenience of both the parties, customers and service providers.
When it comes to the travel & hospitality industry, optimizing seats & stocks hold great significance - to what extent you manage it decides how ahead you stay of the competition. With these systems you can efficiently track and manage the status of the entire inventory in real time. ensuring the right products are available at the right time ensuring least waste and highest supply chain optimization.
Eating is an integral part of any travel plan and that’s where these reservation systems make sense. These solutions enable customers to reserve tables at their chosen joints, so they can avoid queues & get the best of customer experience.
Travel portals are an industry favorite as they are a one-stop-shop for travelers to plan and book trips, from commute to stays, manage car rentals, fun activities & day-outs, making the overall travel experience simple.
These systems help organizations automate and optimize their marketing efforts, including campaign management, customer segmentation, and performance analytics, to reach a wider audience and drive sales.
These digital tools streamline financial processes by automating billing, invoicing, and accounting tasks, reducing errors and improving financial transparency.
These systems connect travel service providers, like airlines and hotels, with various distribution channels, allowing for wider reach and efficient distribution of travel-related products and services.
The name says it all. All things travel management under one roof. It does 360° tracking & reporting of all probable aspects, broadly any sort of travel plan - friends group or corporate team, covering stay & meals booking, expense tracking, meeting compliances, reporting the stats for factual decision making, fueling cost & time optimization.
There’s a constant FOMO when it comes to ticking off the touristry list, c’mon, you know about it! To manage all the tourist attractions while providing the best visitor experiences, getting through ticketing without any hassle, scheduling pick-ups & drops, and controlling crowds effectively, enhancing the visitor servicing and operational efficiency alike.
Hunger doesn’t permit waiting time & so, trying to find a place to answer hunger pangs that come up unplanned during the trip is worse than it sounds. With a restaurant finder tool at disposal, you can find nearby eateries at just on click along with the details you need, from menu to pocket pinch, reviews, availability & more.
Casinos are all time favorite tourist attractions but managing them without the right digital help at hand can get difficult without the right process in place. Using this software, managing all things casino, be it gaming operations or monitoring player’s activities, tracking regulatory compliances or optimizing revenue stream, everything becomes a matter of clicks & taps.
From gas stations to rest rooms, McD to the nearest Target store, the mid-way stop needs during a trip are diverse and finding the right spot without wasting hours can be quite a task. These location-based tools & services come in handy in such situations, helping users find what they need in their vicinity, thus improving accessibility.
That’s all, you must be thinking?
Well, not really.
You’re yet to know the starting point (yes, saved the best for the ending), how to get started with the travel software development process?
Top three action items are,
to know your needs inside out to set the expectations right
to choose the right software development partners
to test on-the-go & keep a strict eye on the post-launch upgrade & maintenance plans
All set to dive into a detailed, tailored plan that’s estimated around your business goals & growth needs?
Every business, even if from the same industry, has very specific demands which serve the purpose set by the business goals and objectives and thus, the software used by travel agencies across the globe are also very different from each other. But broadly, the common software solutions that are used by tour operators are travel & stay booking software, trip itinerary builders, accounting & billing software, CRMs & marketing campaign scheduler software etc.
There’s no fixed price tag associated with travel software development since the cost is totally dependent on a number of factors like what features & functionalities you choose for the software, their logical complexity, and a lot of similar factors. But, roughly put, building a travel software solution can cost you somewhere between $15K to $50K.
Creating a travel software is only a matter of a few sequential steps done strategically and that series goes like : know what you want your software to do for you i.e. its features & functionalities, do your vendor research & finalize the software partner that promises you value for money (clearly, gold doesn’t come at a dirt cheap rate and that’s exactly why it has the ROI!), while the partner does its work keep the communication channel open with regular updates & consistent testing, finally launch and keep a feedback-upgrade-re-test cycle on.
Quite as the name suggests, a Travel CRM (customer relationship management) solution automates & streamlines all your customer-facing tasks, like handling customer queries instantly with accurate responses, managing feedback receipt & interactions across multiple channels including social media, needs across the entire sales journey, tracking KPIs & recommending improvement plans, communication history storage & analysis, personalized travel plan & insights sharing etc.
