Increase sales through interactive travel videos
Video, as a medium, allows you to present travel services in a vivid and emotionally appealing way - much better than is possible in print media or on websites and the like. Increase your sales with personalized videos, too.
Benefit from the positive effect of video with Travel:up Video. Offer your travel services in personalized videos tailored to each customer. Customers can jump directly from these videos to booking the shown services.
The tool supports the following scenarios:
1. The sale of additional services. Such as when a customer has already booked a trip or core service but has not yet departed.
2. The sale of trips or main services to customers who have not booked with you for a long time.
Possible scenarios to consider
How does Travel:up Video work?
The entire system landscape consists of the following components:
1. Collection of your video sequences – Travel:up Video Snippet Management
Individual video sequences summarize additional services in an appealing way in a short film. If flights are your main service, you can offer additional services such as in-flight catering, greater legroom or additional baggage options in short video sequences. For hotels, additional services such as room upgrades, a meal in the restaurant, or a wellness treatment in the hotel spa can be highlighted.
There is a separate, short video sequence in the product repertoire for each service. You either create these sequences yourself or commission an external service provider such as an agency. ISO provides you with a powerful tool to create and edit the interactive video sequences.
2. Reservation System & Internet Booking Engine
Your reservation system, where all of your bookings are managed, provides Travel:up Video with a service that informs them of all the services that have been booked. Your Internet Booking Engine will have to allow your customers to book additional services.
ISO offers the following solutions if needed: Pacific or Atlantic for reservations and our Internet Booking Engine for online sales.
3. Travel:up Video Tool
The tool is the core of the solution. It receives information about the customer's booked services directly from your reservation system and also gets information on the additional services that match the services already booked.
The tool sends an email with an online link to the customer.
As soon as the customer clicks on the link, the video is individually compiled, personalized and played for the customer. The tool combines the video sequences of all the relevant additional services into one seamless video. An introduction sequence is provided with the customer's personal data, thus referring to the trip the customer has already booked.
The result is a cohesive video that first addresses the customer personally and then presents and offers the additional services.
The video is interactive. The viewer can click on each additional service in the video and thus jump directly to the booking section. If your Internet Booking Engine allows it, the existing booking can be opened by means of a deep link. The additional service selected can also be placed directly in the shopping cart.
This is how the customer can easily book the additional service.Request our free newsletter here
