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.
