With spring on the horizon, holiday-goers are beginning to think about planning the perfect break. But planning a holiday isn’t always easy. With so many options, finding the right combination of activities, experiences and destinations can be overwhelming. However, with the help of artificial intelligence (AI), you can now create the perfect trip like never before.
Craft, the company building the future of documents, explains how AI can help curate your dream holiday – for any occasion.
Here are four ways you can use the power of AI to plan your perfect getaway…
Discover destination options
Planning a holiday can be time-consuming and tedious – with the average person dedicating over 10 hours to finding the best prices and deals on flights, hotels, and attractions.
Now, with the help of artificial intelligence (AI), holidaymakers can easily pick a holiday that fits their needs, without relying on traditional travel agents or lengthy searches on holiday comparison sites.
With intelligent chatbots integrated into popular social media platforms like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, individuals are now able to have the best holiday deals served to them, without manually searching through booking sites. Leading travel reservation companies such as Booking.com, Skyscanner, and Expedia are all making use of these AI-based chatbots to enhance their services – and help you find the best deals.
Personalise your trip
Whether you are seeking adventure-based activities or mouthwatering food options, no great trip is complete without some fantastic experiences.
AI enables you to save time and effort when planning your holiday by suggesting personalised, unique experiences, without the hassle. Using AI assistants such as Craft to provide recommendations, or AI-powered apps such as iplan.ai, the way we organise and plan trips has been revolutionised.
Such platforms enable you to curate the best travel plans possible to ensure the perfect holiday. Equipped with AI, apps such as iplan can curate personalised itineraries and directions to the most desirable attractions, so you are prepared to make the most of your trip.
Monitor your spending and saving
Organising a big trip can be an exciting undertaking, but it can also be costly. To help keep tabs on your expenses before, during and after the journey, utilising AI-powered programs can be a great asset.
AI-powered budgeting tools can also provide insights into your spending habits, allowing you to make informed decisions about your budget. You can even set up AI budget assistants to remind you to stay on track and alert you when you’re close to your spending limit or to keep tabs on any savings needed for your next holiday. .
Find the best deals
AI-based programs have made it easier than ever to compare prices, identify the best deals, and quickly book tickets to your desired destination.
With tools such as Hopper, travellers can view flight and hotel price predictions throughout the year, and be offered personalised recommendations about the optimal booking time, as well as alternative travel offers.
With automated pricing alerts, travellers can be notified when the price of their desired flight drops, allowing them to book a more affordable ticket. By taking advantage of these great tools, travellers can save time and money on their next flight.
A spokesperson for Craft comments: “AI technology is changing the way we live our lives – and plan our holidays. From providing tailored recommendations to finding the best deals and routes, you can plan the perfect holiday easier and more efficiently than ever before.
“With the introduction of new technology, such as ChatGPT, individuals can now organise their holidays within a few minutes – putting together itineraries, exploring destination options and compiling lists of recommendations.”
