Apple Watch Promotion for Signature Travel Agents!
Now through the end of 2015, Signature Travel agents who book three trips valued at $10K each will earn a brand new Apple Watch Sport (MSRP $399) courtesy of VIP Tour Group!
Following a whirlwind of buzz around the tech giant’s newest wearable, Apple isn’t releasing sales figures just yet. But, local stores tell us if you place your order today, you shouldn’t expect to receive your hip new wrist computer until mid June. Apple predicted high demand for its stylish new offering, but what they probably didn’t see coming is the widespread excitement throughout the travel industry. With the Apple Watch bringing flights, airline info, maps and more to your wrist, experiential travel has never been closer at hand.
There are currently about two dozen travel apps available for the Apple Watch, with most being logistical in nature, including TripAdvisor, Babbel, American Airlines, Uber, Expedia and hotels.com.
Other travel companies, such as hotel chains Marriott and SPG are taking things a bit further. Marriott will allow its Apple Watch wearing guests to check in and out, as well as make payments using Apple Pay, right from their wrists. Well-known innovator SPG is currently installing a new door security system to allow guests to use their watch as a room key. For these innovators, it’s about more than merely logistics, it’s about improving the guest’s travel experience.
We can’t wait to see what else leading travel firms have in store for the Apple Watch, and how our customers engage with it.
