Here’s how ChatGPT can be a game-changer for your travel business:


Using Chat GPT as your research assistant


As a travel agency, you may already be benefiting from a DMC’s expertise to assist you in planning experiences your clients will talk about for years – but sometimes, they won’t have the time or the details on hand. And that’s okay – because your new intern does, and this is your opportunity to seal the deal with the in-the-know finishing flourishes that’ll blow your clients away.


For where to go


Use Chat GPT to help you unearth specific or new activities tailored to your clients’ preferences. Discover the most authentic, unspoiled, off-the-beaten track activities at their destination.


For what to eat


Tailor-made travel clients just love a memorable restaurant recommendation that feels designed for them. Use Chat GPT to find new restaurants in an area that match your guests’ preferences perfectly – it can even trawl through reviews so you can write about the destination with expert flair.


For press about your trips


Chat GPT can help you search the web for recent articles and stories written by journalists and explorers of a particular destination as you develop your new trips.


For meeting discerning traveler needs


Whether it’s a hotel with a golf course, a balcony with a sea view for brilliant breakfasts or a view of a watering hole on a safari expedition – your Chat GPT assistant can find it all, in seconds.

Using Chat GPT as your content creator


You may already have a rough idea on how Chat GPT can break down your travel agency’s marketing strategy and help do some of the manual content creation for you, but if not, let’s bring you up to speed.


The thought of a blank page may already have you sweating at the collar. Chat GPT means you can kiss goodbye to staring helplessly at the typing bar. But not entirely – simply copy and pasting from Chat GPT is bad practice and takes away the ‘human touch’ your consumers love – instead, you should use Chat GPT’s suggestions to offer you a solid foundation starting point.


And with Chat GPT, it’s ridiculously easy to create unique, clever headlines for events, or subject lines for emails that are hard not to click. It can even repurpose your existing content with a new gloss, allowing you to stay relevant for longer.



Using Chat GPT as your itinerary assistant


When you’ve written an itinerary, Chat GPT can act as that all-important second pair of editing eyes, tweaking language and making it sound on brand. And when travel plans are disrupted, you’ve got an intern who can work at the click of a button to help you source and slot new plans into your guests’ itineraries.


Using Chat GPT for style and grammar checks


ChatGPT can also be your personal editor and spellchecker, especially when you need to convert DMC quotes written by non-native speakers. Upload your brand guidelines and implement your own brand language. Simply copy the language into Chat GPT, and it’ll get to work correcting grammar and transforming the quick email into a beautiful draft of client-ready copy. This means you can also adapt your text by asking Chat GPT to use British English instead of American English, reformatting content to add bullet points, or swapping temperature metrics. Told you it was easy!

Use Chat GPT to keep travel information in your tone of voice


A recognisable logo is often a go-to example of great marketing communication, but this glosses over the underrated power of a brand’s voice. Consumers should be able to know you from how your brand presents itself in its text, right from the email headline.


Keep your brand consistent with messaging so that it feels like it’s coming from you, even when it’s not. Whether you adopt a chattier tone with some guests, or have a more refined, pared-back style, you can upload your brand guidelines or favorite words of your brand to adopt in your copy to ensure that it is in line with your brand guidelines.



Use Chat GPT to become your social media manager assistant


Whether launching new products for clients, announcing new experiences, staying on top of trending industry news or even just sharing behind-the-scenes updates, Chat GPT is a great source for the busy travel agency marketing manager to fill up their social media calendars. It does the research for you so you can focus on the creative parts that demand a human touch.


It can even hit the books for you – finding the important facts and figures to outline in your copy. You can ask for up-to-date hashtags to use and to adapt your caption’s length for different social apps, so your Facebook post can work on Instagram and LinkedIn too. Soon, you’ll find that Chat GPT is an invaluable member of your social media team, cutting your workload in half so that your deadlines of End of Week become End of Day.
