More Momentum Building On Subscription Services In Travel
Travel companies -- from hotel to car rental brands and tour operators -- are increasingly dabbling in pay-by-month subscriptions. TTC's Trafalgar said this week it had taken a step toward selling 2021 trips via subscription, as it began offering loans for travel packages next year that consumers can begin paying now in installments. Even travel advisors are getting in on the model. Consumers who want help planning their travel during a pandemic can now buy an annual subscription for access to a “wellness travel advisor” from the service MyLifeWell. The early signs of the subscription model are promising, says Skift.
