In the current context, the B2C or B2B tourist is looking for personalization, autonomy and authenticity.
The number of clients who want services to save time (wealthy clients, corporations) or because they want to take care of themselves (elderly people) or because they want to travel in groups (communities) is not expected to decrease in the future.1
So, how can we take advantage of this to translate it into economic benefits?
To go further on the evolution of the ecosystem.
At Ezus (ex Esus), when we were asked about the best tools, we thought we’d share it with you. Of course the list is far from being exhaustive, but it is an excellent checklist to start 2020 🎉
Don’t forget that your website is a reflection of what you want to offer your customers.
Tools recommended by Ezus (ex Esus) : WIX drag & drop, cheap, very cool additional tools like transactional emailing and the integrated newsletter tool (Strikingly is also a good option).

WhatsApp is internationally known. Once the first emails are exchanged, stay professional and available by chatting with your customers, prospects, partners and suppliers easily via this free instant messaging platform accessible to all.
😍 To go further : You can add your number as an email signature or on your website. Just create your personalized link by adding the country code and your number to the following link:
For example, if your number is 346789715 and your country code +39 your link will be : https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=39345678789715
Ok it’s not a tool, but it can be useful for you: keep an eye on the products of TOs, airlines and other tour operators, who can offer interesting offers all year round.
In addition, depending on the airlines, you may be able to benefit from margins on ancillary revenues. Checked baggage, meals on board, seat selection or priority boarding are all services charged by low-cost airlines in particular. So don’t hesitate to offer all these options to your customers in order to increase the basket. Another idea: travel insurance.
