Blockchain in Travel and Tourism

The implementation of blockchain technology in the travel and tourism industry would be a win/win for both industry corporations and travellers

How Blockchain Technology will Dominate the Travel Industry

Despite being one of the vast markets, the travel and tourism industry is being dominated by monopolies. It’s quite evident in the sphere for travel booking services. Major companies like Expedia,, and Airbnb have become the most sought-after places for finding accommodation, but they all have fees and different charges while the vendor charges a customer for payment processing.

The blockchain technology, smart contracts, and distributed ledgers contain the potential to drastically change the way the travel and tourism industry works for both vendors and customers.

The Problem within the Industry

  • Failing loyalty schemes
  • Improper baggage tracking
  • Settlements between operators
  • Identity and reputation
  • Overbooking
  • Policy and compliance
  • Duty of care

Why Choose Blockchain Technology As a Fix

Eliminating Overbooking Issue

Blockchain has the ability to prevent double spending. And so, it could remove the problem of double booking in this industry. It would eliminate instances like this from happening related to passengers but airlines as well.

Improving Baggage Tracking

Blockchain-based solutions could offer a shared, distributed ledger, that can be used by everyone within and between airports that at some point have control over baggage. The blockchain-powered system would enable automatic logging of a bag and its ownership details. Further, the records can be shared with whoever concerned person to improve accountability, and to track down the luggage.

Simplifying Settlements Between Operators

Smart Contracts based on a blockchain system could change the way operators, service providers and OTAs operates. They will need to settle cash and commissions based on a predetermined set of agreements using smart contracts. And the process can be made automatic and executed in a way that increases efficiency and reduces costs for everyone involved.

Revolutionising Identification

One of the most prominent potential Blockchain uses in the travel sector is identification. We can imagine the future where trustworthy and immutable nature of blockchain technology could entirely change the way travelers are recognized throughout the entire their journey.

Enhancing Duty of Care

With blockchain, it can be made easy to foresee how risk management systems grant access to a traveler's location at any time. Health records stored on the blockchain network could also aid a traveler in need of medical help.

Ensuring Policy and Compliance

Blockchain technology can act as a gatekeeper which helps corporates to stay compliant. Using blockchain solutions, managers can receive real-time alerts for policy breaches that could happen. Indeed, the blockchain using its potential for matchless transparency, privacy and security can enable this model for the safe future of managed travel.
