En­ter­ing the dig­i­tal era has made our daily lives so much eas­ier. The num­ber of dig­i­tal prod­ucts and of­fer­ings are mush­room­ing as the de­mand for dig­i­tal prod­ucts also grows across the globe.

While this is of course use­ful at work, I am con­stantly amazed by how much the dig­i­tal ex­pe­ri­ence has rev­o­lu­tionised travel, pro­vid­ing great perks, con­ve­nience and se­cu­rity.

These days, I use on­line chan­nels to pur­chase my flight tick­ets, ho­tel book­ings, car rental and a lot more, for both leisure and busi­ness trips.

Not only do I have 24/7 ac­cess to the book­ing en­gines, I can usu­ally find great deals and bun­dles on­line.

An­other amaz­ing fa­cil­ity is the e-wal­let, which al­lows me to com­bine var­i­ous pay­ment op­tions from dif­fer­ent ac­counts into one dig­i­tal purse for a has­sle-free pay­ment op­tion.

It is also a worry-free ex­pe­ri­ence, as trans­ac­tions via PayPal and Visa, for ex­am­ple, are highly se­cure with a min­i­mal risk of fraud­u­lent trans­ac­tions, and are ac­cepted in more than 40 coun­tries.

The e-wal­let also al­lows me to col­lect points and take ad­van­tage of at­trac­tive pro­mo­tions.

It’s great to see more air­lines start to ex­plore e-wal­let fa­cil­i­ties for their pas­sen­gers, as the chan­nel gives ben­e­fits to both par­ties.

I en­cour­age fel­low busi­ness trav­ellers to em­brace and sup­port the use of dig­i­tal chan­nels in their lives, and par­tic­u­larly for travel. It not only makes our lives eas­ier, but of­fers bet­ter value for money and sav­ing po­ten­tial.
