Sports travel is unique, even for the ever-complex travel industry. Sports travel companies are offering once-in-a-lifetime trips that feature once-in-a-lifetime events, with potentially dozens or even hundreds of global sports fans demanding their attention at the same time. It’s a LOT. 

So it’s no wonder the biggest players in the sports travel game are turning to travel tech like Vamoos to address all of these issues with one cutting-edge solution. How can one platform address all of these pain points? Let’s take a look…

 

Personalisation at Scale

Personalisation is the name of the game in today’s travel industry, and nowhere is this more critical than in sports travel. Imagine orchestrating travel for 200 fiery fans to a major event. Catering to these travellers, while still managing the collective logistics for the group, is like trying to referee a team where each player is playing a different sport!

Tailoring travel arrangements for these groups adds some serious complexity to bookings, transportation, and accommodation. And that’s where travel tech like Vamoos comes in. 

Vamoos offers customisable itineraries, ensuring each traveller only sees the information relevant to them, even within larger groups. With always accessible documents and real-time flight updates, Vamoos not only simplifies the complexity of tailored travel arrangements but also automates much of the process. This means personalisation at scale becomes not just possible, but effortless, letting every traveller enjoy a uniquely tailored experience without the usual hassle.

Dynamic Pricing and Availability

The nature of pricing and availability for flights, accommodations, and event tickets is, er, volatile, to say the least. As demand spikes around major events, prices can soar, making it challenging to offer competitive packages while maintaining profitability. You need to be able to communicate packages, price changes, and special offers to clients quickly and effectively. 

Vamoos empowers you to get these vital communications out in seconds with instant updates and notifications, as well as offering digital itineraries and direct messaging that allows you to talk with the client in-app. Not only does this slash your stress levels, it offers clients a premium experience that reinforces the value they get for their money.

The Cost and Efficiency Balancing Act

Customising experiences while managing costs and maintaining operational efficiency is like being an Olympic gymnast on the pommel horse: a slip on either side could cost you everything you’ve worked for. Even with innovative solutions offered by travel tech sometimes finding the right balance will need difficult compromises, but that doesn’t mean tech can’t ease the load. 

Using an all-in-one platform like Vamoos streamlines your travel management by centralising all information in a singular hub, automating communication for instant updates, simplifying itinerary adjustments, and facilitating direct messaging. This significantly reduces the time spent by you and your team on organising, searching for information, and resolving queries.

Seasonal Nature of Events

The seasonal rhythm of sports brings with it a unique set of challenges. Every year, as predictably as the seasons change, certain events draw HUGE crowds from around the globe. But this predictability is a double-edged sword: while it allows for planning ahead, it also funnels your operational and marketing efforts into very specific, high-pressure periods. 

The need to maximise every opportunity within these windows, without the luxury of steady year-round demand, can significantly strain your resources, demanding an innovative way to keep engagement high throughout the off-season…

Through interactive content like Inspirations and offline maps, Vamoos keeps your audience engaged through the season and beyond, maintaining interest, building excitement for upcoming events with live countdown timers, and, ultimately, boosting year-round engagement.

Marketing and Visibility

In a crowded market, standing out and capturing the attention of potential clients requires savvy marketing and a strong online presence. Building and maintaining this visibility, especially during off-peak times, requires a consistent push to stay connected with your sports audience. 

Through customisable branding and seamless social media integration, Vamoos makes showcasing your offerings a breeze. Using our branded countdown timer, you can effortlessly increase brand awareness while ramping up pre-event excitement. And after clients return from their trip? Vamoos enables you to send targeted push notifications with upselling brochures in the form of Inspirations, maximising potential revenue.
