When it comes to the future, technology is looking to be an important part of how we function as a society. This also reflects on the travel industry, which is adapting to the new demands of the traveler by anticipating their future technological needs. Mobile devices and the apps they run are a large part of these needs. According to the source, the most common reason consumers had in 2018 to use a travel app over a mobile website was because the features they liked on the app were not available on the mobile browser.
