Travel has always been one of the booming industries, thanks to the never-ending quench of travel enthusiasts, Leisure travel is also considered to be one of the most satisfying ways for people around the world to ‘spend and also be happy about it’. And to add to its sheen is the online advantage to Travel.
Travel is now more accessible and hassle-free than ever before – thanks to the consumer-friendly travel websites and travel apps. Here are a few awesome statistics that’ll make you ponder of the idea of building your own travel website and travel application.
When you are creating a travel website or application, keep your eyes open. Research on what is trending, to get an insight about what your target market (the travel enthusiasts) is searching. And make sure you analyze the User Search behavior (by device used) in the Travel industry as they differ for website and mobile app users.
But remember, is of no use cloning a successful product. Find out the ‘good to have’ features the popular product is missing and build your own MVP for travel.
If you are a travel enthusiast looking to build a travel website or a travel app, you must have come across this very question umpteen times – How much does an app like Uber, AirBnB, Yelp or Trivago cost?
Well, it will cost you a lot of your hard-earned money for sure. But before you take that BIG leap inspired by their thumping success story – here is a word of caution from the experts at Techtic.
Instead build a minimum viable product (MVP)for your travel app idea and once you are convinced of its potential and its need for the target audience, build a full-fledged travel application.
This calls for the need to choose the most viable business strategy, and clarify the purpose for which you are building a travel app MVP, along with identifying the most common use cases. Here we discuss the most viable features for each kind of Travel application:
Building a travel planning app like TripIt, Foursquare, Google Trips, or Passbook usually starts at USD 55,000 for a web app and USD 75,000 for web and one mobile app.
Interestingly, 85% travel apps have the navigation and geolocation feature, and this is integral even if it is in the MVP or beta version.There has been a steep rise of 150 percent in the Near Me searches in Google Map since 2018 – strongly indicating the dominating effect of this feature and the search engine.
Building a navigation app like Google Maps, Maps.me, Waze, Google/Facebook Places starts at USD 40,000 for one mobile platform.
