What does the future hold for VR/AR within the tourism industry?
GlobalData’s report, Virtual & Augmented Reality in Tourism suggests that virtual reality could become the next big computing platform, it is now a serious investment theme and as the technology takes off, airlines, hotels and travel agencies will benefit hugely.
Tourists often feel they are going in blind when booking trips they have no experience in. Due to AR not being completely immersive, it can aid tourists significantly with trip planning by providing a better sense of what they are about to purchase.
