We want travel to be a more connected and complete experience for both tourists and corporate travelers. Our industry has a key role in the development and improvement of several services that will be integral to creating a truly connected future of travel. We’ve reached a ‘point of no return’ during the last decade in providing connected travel experiences, but it is always worthwhile to ask ourselves if there are situations where connectivity may be a setback.
We did just that and asked travelers and travel industry players from Latin America what they felt are the pros and cons of being constantly connected while traveling.
