Generative AI has given the world a science fiction-like form of practicality and solutions. It allows for the seamless and accurate simplification of many processes in all kinds of industries. Tours & Attractions businesses use AI to create and optimize descriptions and listings, improve customer service and communications, and streamline online booking operations. Consequently, the customer experience pre-travel is refined with the least effort needed, but in a very efficient way and could lead to positive reviews after the tour. 

Using AI in the tours and activities industry

Generative AI came to the world to revolutionize the use of technology in different industries, but also in daily life. From customers to suppliers, the travel industry has been impacted severely with the new developments in AI technologies. According to a study made by PhocusWire, 1 in 3 travelers plan their vacation with AI, 84% of them were satisfied and more than half took the recommendations.

They also discovered that 54% trust GenAI for travel inspiration and planning and 81% would book based on its recommendations. So, nowadays, suppliers like TripAdvisor, Booking and Expedia have developed their own AI based travel advisor on their platform, because they saw many of their members would rather choose a platform for their AI capabilities. 

However miraculous AI for automated tasks may sound or be, it also causes some barriers for the companies supplying it, like finding qualified personnel to use the tools or the incredibly real fake reviews they can generate. The latter can have a big negative impact on a business’ online reputation and break the trust they have with clients and prospective customers. But, the only way to fight them is with the same AI, so you use your AI to combat another AI.
