Working in a Travel Industry? You have to create a chatbot.
And this is why.

Tourism, traveling all round the world — one of the most exciting things which people enjoy.

On the one hand some people like to travel in comfort, so they are resting in different fashionable hotels. On the other hand, there are people who enjoy a backpacking or prefer to travel by hitchhiking and they obtain the same positive emotions.
All that unites these people is the Travel Industry.

Travel agencies, hotels, hostels, amusement parks, entertainments are working for the comfort of tourists.

Their goal is: Client must be satisfied and come back again”.

People are wondering themselves before each trip:

-Which airline to choose?
Where to spend the night?
What will I do there?
What interesting entertainment is there?
What should I take with me?

Answering all these questions takes too much time.

How to make the process of answering these questions faster?

We can easily find the answer here, in the world where technological progress begins steadily growing.

The answer is clear— chatbots.

A chatbot is a service, powered by rules and sometimes artificial intelligence, that you interact with via a messenger or a chat interface.

What can be the functionality of chatbot?
