Local tourism will be the first to bloom
In the short term (3-12 months after the crisis) it's possible that flying and other forms of international travel will be restricted.
Country by country as things get better once the virus has passed there is still likely to be restrictions on inbound and outbound tourism.
This will not mean tourism cannot flourish on the domestic level. Indeed if China is anything to compare too, domestic tourism is set to increase.
Toristy has developed a model that enables destination transportation companies and hotels the ability to sell tours, activities and experiences like an OTA via their own website. There are 3 main benefits.
- Fast deployment (under 3 days to implement on any website) helps both the channel partners and the tour and activity operators.
- Works with other reservation tools & partners (upon launch we will have 12,000 tours and activities we can sell in destination)
- Puts the operator services in front of travellers when they are travelling (or booking)
