A tour operator called ChatGpt: Artificial intelligence is changing the way we travel

What if I told you that you can also get advice from artificial intelligence when planning your trip? A few days ago I was talking to a friend who is about to travel to Cuba and he told me that he asked ChatGpt to organize an itinerary for him. The result? An extremely accurate itinerary, exactly the same one provided to him by an agency he had asked for a quote from. You can ask ChatGpt for anything: the more details you provide, the better the result will be tailored to your needs. However, if the AI ​​is generous with advice, it cannot yet solve the logistics of the trip. I believe that today – and global trends confirm this – “authentic” travel, as close as possible to the habits of the local population, is increasingly valued. Evaneos This is a platform that brings together small tour operators operating in the region, a good solution for receiving individual, non-brokered travel suggestions. It works worldwide and can solve almost any problem on site, even at the last moment. The trend is also confirmed by the major global platforms: think of Airbnb, which revived the “accommodation = socializing” trend. It now offers hospitality packages with host-accompanied activities in a new category: Airbnb rooms. The basic idea – sharing the house but also spending a few hours in company – is a way to make new acquaintances and experience travel destinations as if you were a local. And in fact it all has a value: the last time I was in Brussels, I lived in the apartment of a pilot who cooked me breakfast and gave me a lot of information about the city; Years ago in Barcelona I was the guest of two students who took me to a party. Because technology, combined with people, can create incredible experiences that we could not have imagined until recently. In addition, today, searching for a house to stay online gives you the opportunity to sleep in special places: from the highest shelters in the world to the most luxurious yurts to tiny houses in the countryside. But the accommodation and the organization of the travel stages are not everything. Even the world of cultural visits, tickets to museums and attractions has changed thanks to digital and former Italian start-ups such as Musement, a platform where you can book and buy everything from visiting the Louvre to tickets to Disneyland Paris. It is no coincidence that the company, which was founded ten years ago, was subsequently taken over by the German Tui group and today has a turnover of almost one billion euros. Ultimately, innovation allows you to be anywhere, but connected like you are at home. Thanks to Elon Musk’s SpaceX, even on a sailboat in the middle of the Atlantic. Simply opt for a satellite subscription Starlink instead of the classic ADSL (the costs are now comparable) and you can benefit from global connectivity anywhere. Traveling on, but always connected.
