TravelBlock is a blockchain based decentralized platform that intends to provide users a low cost and secured travel deals. The platform intends to provide customers exceptional customer services, affordable rates, and premiere concierge by eliminating all those traditional GDS as well as third-party commission systems. Besides trying hard to bring revolution in the system that people use to book to plan their travel, it also strives to be the highest quality platform available worldwide.
How Does TravelBlock Work?
TravelBlock is looking to introduce a system where vacationers are connected through the blockchain. Currently, travel agents depend on Global Distribution System – GDS to connect users to their ultimate destinations. However, the platform will eliminate the GDS system making it way easier for vacationers to book a better travel plan by getting into a direct contact with service providers, thereby enjoying low cost yet better travel services.
