The Impact of Virtual Tours on the Commercial Industry

Virtual Tours are a necessary investment in the world of travel. Think about it, If customers and potential vacationers could see what your hotels look like before planning their vacation it would make choosing your hotel much easier. On the majority of hotel websites, there are pictures of the rooms but they only show the sleeping area and not the rest of the room. If there were virtual tours of the rooms it would allow potential travelers to get a virtual in-person view of your accommodations.

Another profitable addition would be to add 360 virtual tours or still shots of the local area. Suppose that someone were to plan a vacation to the Caribbean and they have never been there before. Give them a sneak peak that could seal the deal over other hotels that opt to not provide virtual tours of the area. The hotel and tourism industry is always booming. This is one industry that will never die out. People will always take vacations but what would enhance the vacation process is to see a bit of where they would be staying as well as local virtual tours of the area. If you took a poll and asked 10 people if having seen a virtual tour before making reservations would make them reserve their vacation faster, 8 out of 10 would say yes. This only furthers the proof that virtual tours are becoming the norm in the commercial travel industry.

There are people who are going to plan a vacation regardless of what the accommodations look like, but if they had a choice to see a virtual online tour or while at the office of the travel agent they would, more often than not, opt for accommodations that have a virtual tour. It, obviously, would not entice anyone to change their destination, but it would increase the amount of travelers who have never thought to take a vacation in an unfamiliar (and not yet popular) vacation destination. Virtual tours are the wave of the future of commercial travel. Give us a call now and let an RTV virtual tour provider help you increase your revenue through the use of virtual tours!
