Vacationing through The Block Chain With Travel Block
By Pablo Bonanno
Everybody looks forward to a break, a chance to get away from everyday life and do and see new things.
Whether it be an adventure holiday, relaxing by the beach, a city break or even some exotic island far away. As the travel industry has evolved it is now more accessible to travel anywhere with budget airlines and online travel agencies, but now with blockchain technology the travel industry is going to change massively.
Where before people would be walking in to their local Travel agent greeted by a long table full of smartly dressed women in their uniform all eager to serve you and a wall of brochures all filled with stunning photos and perfect family’s playing ball on the beach. Then in 1992 the High street Travel agents had a new competitor when Wayne Perks founded Teletext holidays, where you could sit in the comfort of your own home looking at cheap holiday deals to mainly Spain and Greece on your TV. This proved very popular, as with cutting out the agent you could get a holiday abroad for as little as £99.
A couple of years after that in 1994 the High street Travel agents had a bigger threat to deal with, the first online travel agent Travelweb.com. But at this time most people were still using travel agents or Teletext, however this then paved the way for more online competition with Lonely planet launching in 1995. Then Microsoft seeing the potential of online travel and launching Expedia followed by Lastminute.co in 1998. By the year 2000 the travel industry was booming, with online agents offering cheaper holidays. This was short lived after the tragic events on September the 11th 2001 an event that hit the travel industry hard. It slowly started to pick up with budget airlines and more and more online agents competing with each other, the travel industry has gone from strength to strength with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport seeing close to 104 million passengers pass through in 2017.
The Game Changer
On the 28th of July 2018 a new threat to the Travel Industry was launched called TravelBlock, this will possibly have the biggest impact on the travel industry ever! Using blockchain technology Travel Block will be able to give its users up to a massive 60% discount. All of the current online travel agents use GDS (Global Distribution System) this is a computerized network system that enables transactions between travel industry service providers, eliminating the traditional Global Distribution system there will be significant advantages over utilizing existing frameworks and applications. It’s low cost, secure, immutable, irreversible and transparent for the public. Also by being a private consumer platform they can offer the wholesale price to customers ensuring the best possible rates. They assure you that wherever your travels lead you to, you’ll always get what you want, where you want, when you want it.
As well as being the cheapest they cover a vast area as well.

OTA’s (Online Travel Agents) have dominated the market for over 20 years giving consumers headaches for years by attaching hidden fees, giving you a false sense of savings where there really is none due to the OTA agreements that are in place to make sure these companies can never compete against each other. Also with the use of predictive analytics to boost rates on your vacation based on how many times you search for a specific flight or click on a link. TravelBlock will fix these problems to make sure the consumer will save time and money on your next trip.
