Exciting New Travel App Marketed at Over-50s
One of the things that many people get to really enjoy once they reach 50 is their ability to travel. At this age, not only are people in a more financially suitable place to travel, but they might also have more time to set off and explore the world, and this means that they have endless opportunities when it comes to choosing where to go, and what they are going to do once they get there.
With that being said, travel also comes with a variety of headaches, particularly at the planning phase, so it is no wonder SAGA Travel decided to create and launch the MySaga Holiday App, and market it to this group of individuals.
Creating Technology for the People
According to the creators of the app, travels will be able to use the technology to see all of the finer details included in their trip and look up the weather, among other features. The site also allows travellers to book their own excursions while they were away from home. These features came after the company decided to ask over 9,000 over 50s travellers about what they wanted in a holiday app, and the company has most certainly listened.
As the results of the survey suggested, almost 90% of the respondents stated that being able to access flight information was a top priority, while 83% stated that it was important for them to have their cruise ship information on hand. 82% of the respondents said that they felt having a summary of the holiday they had booked was integral.
Not only has the app enabled users to access information relating to the holiday goer’s getaway, but they have also made it possible for them to pay the balance of their trip via the app itself.
The Future of Travel
According to the travel company, 3 out of 4 over 50s are making use of a smartphone or tablet and around 13% of individuals are currently utilizing the holiday app. According to chief executive Andrew Strong, the app allows for individuals to make changes to their holiday quickly and easily, and improve their overall experience of this getaway.
With technology making just about everything from navigation to connecting people around the world that much easier, isn’t it about time that technology be brought into the realm of holiday making, to take all the strain out of world travel? It seems a savvy group of over 50s would agree.
