Everybody knows the struggle of planning a vacation or trip. From booking flights to finding hotels, it becomes a real hassle. With travel bots, which are said to be “virtual travel assistants,” this process is made a lot easier. A travel bot is an artificial intelligence (AI) design that responds to messages instantly. These bots typically help to find the best flights, hotels, and even gifts. Travel bots are rather new and most have come about around three years ago. You will mainly see Travel bots being used for finding flights or hotels.
How Are Travel Bots Useful?
Instead of spending your time trying to search multiple sites for the best hotels or cheapest flights you can spend your time planning what to do when you get there, while a travel bot finds these things for you. For companies, these travel bots save time and money. With the help of travel bots there is less of a demand for customer service representatives. The bots can manage questions and give excellent results. Travel agencies and hotels are also able to be more productive due to these travel bots. Instead of having to notify potential customers of prices and or other information, one can receive this information from the travel bot.
How do you use a Travel Bot?
Some of the first sites to have a travel bot were Kayak, Skyscanner, Expedia.com and Cheapflights. For example, Cheapflights works by entering your flight location and destination along with dates and amount of people. Once all of this information is entered, it loads a list of travel sites that you can go on to find the best and or cheapest flight. If one wanted to find a hotel the process would be similar. You would go on a site such as Kayak and search the place you are visiting and then you will receive different hotels that you can look further into. You can even use a travel bot to find and send a gift to anyone. You can buy almost anything such as gift cards, gift baskets, and much more. It is also possible to have gifts sent to or from other countries which makes things so much easier price wise. Although travel bots are recent and there is still some experimentation, they have turned out well thus far. They have made life on both ends more efficient. It is believed that travel bots will develop into an even more hassle free network for safe and easy travel.
