Challenges

Zinrelo understands the unique challenges faced by travel and hospitality companies. Zinrelo’s customer loyalty program can setup a customized loyalty rewards program to not only overcome these challenges but also setup the company for long term success.

Travel & Hospitality companies cater to B2C and B2B clientele. They face multiple challenges:

Lack of Uniqueness

Due to global standardization, all offers and services seem indistinguishable from the other. In such cases, lack of unique offers and experiences becomes a challenge.

Lack of Personalization

Personalization is the key to customer satisfaction. The top customers can be offered personalized packages based on how often they engage with the company for their travels.

Testimonials and Referral

Travelers will not go out of their way to provide testimonials or referrals. Every referral and testimony can help bring in a lot of revenue for such travel and hospitality companies.

Adoption of Add-on Services

Encouraging customers to try and pay for add-on services is a major challenge.

Online Reputation Management

On a rare occasion, itineraries may not go as planned which leaves travelers less than satisfied.

Seasonality

The tourism industry is highly subject to seasonality. It is a lost opportunity in such cases to not engage the customers.

Zinrelo’s customized loyalty programs in travel industry helps solve these challenges. Travel & hospitality rewards programs create a 360-degree engagement with customers and rewards them for performing various activities.
