MOBILE TRAVEL TRENDS ARE GOINGPLACES
Industry: Technology       
Get Inspired. Get Connected. Get Going.

The popularity of "going-mobile" is especially growing in the travel industry. The travel inspiration app, GoingPlaces, is one example of how more and more consumers are turning to their smartphones each day.

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - February 29th, 2016 -

The popularity of “going-mobile” is especially growing in the travel industry. According to Google’s Traveler’s Road to Decision, “Smartphones are used throughout the travel process, on average, 72% of the time.” Furthermore, “78% of leisure travelers have downloaded/used a travel-related smartphone app.”

Joining the trend, the travel inspiration app GoingPlaces, provides a unique solution for many travel suppliers wanting to reach the mobile market. Considered the “Tinder of travel,” GoingPlaces showcases pictures and videos from companies including Audley Travel, Trip Tribe, OARS, WIMCO Villas, Explorient Travel Services, and more. Consumers are inspired by photos at the ease of a swipe, and from within the app can link to the supplier’s website.

One GoingPlaces user explains, “It feels like I have explored the world on the app! It is a lot of fun, very similar to a dating app except for destinations instead of people… Now that I am on my way to Shanghai for the weekend, I have been referring to one of the partners on the app, The China Guide, for more info.”

Miles McAlpin, the director of digital marketing for Audley Travel stated, “We are excited to have Audley Travel be included on the app as one of the initial partners. It has been wonderful to see the app come to life, and I am very pleased as both a partner and regular user of GoingPlaces.”

Founder, Cal Simmons, says “I have always been impressed with the power of photography and how it can inspire travel. GoingPlaces allows consumers to connect with the travel supplier behind the picture.”
