What I Love About Taking A Limousine in Toronto
Jul201628

For someone that travels so much, I find it really important to try and take the stress out of what could be a totally stressful lifestyle. Can you imagine travelling all the time and just spending half the time getting to and from the airport. I really don’t enjoy this, but I have found that taking a limousine is the ultimate solution for me and I always take a private limousine in Toronto. Here are some reasons I keep coming back

Convenient

The best thing is that the second I step off the plane I simply look for my name and find my driver, and I must say it is absolutely perfect. From that point on I no longer need to carry all of my heavy bags as the driver always helps me.

Knowledgeable and professional drivers

The job of a driver is to know things about the city he or she is in and also to be a professional. This means not only great customer service, but a huge knowledge of a city like Toronto. This is perfect for those looking for that invaluable tip that you absolutely cannot find anywhere else.

Time saving

For me as a traveler, saving time is worth so much. When you spend 4 days in Toronto, you really don’t want to be spending half the time on public transport just to get to and from the airport. These few days are precious and

You can relax

I also like that you can relax in the limousine and prepare yourself for your next step. Often when you go somewhere you tend to relax in the hotel for a little while when you get there, but with a limousine you can simply relax, drop off your things at the hotel and then get going. This is another great way that a limousine can save you a lot of time.

Reliability

I think one of the main things is that limousines are very dependable and they stake their reputation on their quality of service. Their business is dependant solely on this and if they cannot deliver reliability and good service, they will not survive. I like the fact that when I need to get to the airport early they arrive 15 minutes before I have requested them and do things like give me a courtesy call to let me know that they are there. This is great and totally stress free.

5 Ways Technology Has Changed Travel
Jul201601

 

Technology is general is just changing so much and so quickly and this has extended to the ways that we now travel. Travel is now something that requires very little interaction and we are able to do a lot without actually talking to real people, which is a stark contrast to the now obsolete ways of doing things from the past. I decided to make this blog post to talk about how technology has changed the way that we all travel.

Discounts

When we think about discounts in the past, usually these were deals organised with a real person, but this is truly something of the past. Now when we see a flight we can use things like coupon codes to provide discounts and there are even sites like My Voucher Codes, which are dedicated to all kinds of discounts.

Booking

Can you remember a time when you had to physically go to a travel agent or book a flight over the phone? This is something that has been changed forever due to the internet and booking comparison sites have become a major deal when it comes to finding flights and accommodation.  

Flights

Flights have changed forever and a lot of the time you don’t even need to physically check in. You can usually do this online and a day in advance, so there really is no rushing to get to the airport to wait in line to check in. There are also simplified bag drops that require very little interaction with people. Airports have adapted to this and many you can simply scan your digital boarding pass and head straight through security. This has made flying that much easier, with much less delays.  

Getting lost

It really is a different landscape when it comes to finding your way around different places. With smartphones equipped with GPS technology, it is very easy to navigate cities and countries that we have never been to before. There really is no excuse for getting lost now and this is in stark comparison to the typical image of a tourist walking around trying to navigate with a paper map.

Other transport

We already touched on booking sites and how they have affected travel. Another aspect of this is local transport, like trains, trams and buses. There are now websites and smartphone applications that allow you to precisely plan your journey by taking and combining different modes of transport to get you where you want to go. This has greatly helped tourists to get around faster and more efficient, allowing them to maximise the potential of their holidays.

Designing a Mobile Travel App – What Do You Need to Get Started?
Jun201621

Mobile devices have taken over the world and shaped it in interesting ways. Regardless of use or location – from flip phones with internet access in sub-Saharan Africa to tablets with large screens for streaming movies – these devices have changed the nature of communications and information. With the dawn of more affordable, versatile mobile phones and devices there has been an explosion in the world of mobile apps, which provide access to entertainment, information, shopping and a variety of other needs and desires.

Many travelers use apps when on vacation or when planning a trip. If you’re looking to build an app that is designed with travelers in mind, then here is what you’ll need to get started.

Mobile App Development Software

The first and perhaps biggest challenge in building a mobile app is finding a platform through which it can be built. Many people rely on developers to do the hard work for them, but this can be costly. If you have the experience and know-how to build your own apps from scratch, then you’ll want to look at solutions like Xamarin Development Software or AppMachine. Professional development software makes it possible for brands and individuals to construct apps that are cross-platform compatible (works on both Android and iOS devices) that provide plenty of visual stimulation, complex databases and interactive features.

A Problem and a Solution

Many of the most successful apps in existence became so popular for one common reason: the developers identified a problem that needed to be solved, and the app helped solve it. Ideally, your mobile travel app will look at addressing at least one of the common problems travelers face, and will provide a way to solve it. Whether you decide to look at the hassle of booking flights, accommodations and other amenities, or you opt to solve challenges in finding the best spots for entertainment, be sure to keep your focus relatively narrow and address a problem nobody else has so far.

Test Groups

As you begin to build a mobile app bit-by-bit, you’ll want to be able to test its features, compatibility, functionality and other aspects. Many developers create several beta versions of their apps in order to learn from users and figure out what works best. Once you’ve created a working version of your app, you’ll want to have several people get together and use your app. This will allow you to obtain important feedback on what can be improved or added. Likewise, furious brainstorming sessions that you’ll undoubtedly have in order to decide which features and functions to include can be improved by focus groups with consumers. You’ll be able to save some time during development by finding out what people expect out of your app.

In order to create a successful mobile app, you’ll want three basic things: a group of people to help you with beta-testing and brainstorming, an outlined problem that can be solved, and quality mobile development software. With these elements in place, the rest is relatively easy to accomplish!
