Mobile engagement that keeps travelers empowered and informed while on the go

Addressing The Needs Of The 'Always On Traveler'

With the mobile phone rated as the #1 most indispensable item travelers carry with them when travelling a key focus for the XL Travel Group was to deliver a mobile user experience that was seamless, intuitive and in line with the expectations of today’s ‘always-on’ traveler.

" The provision of sophisticated mobile services in travel is no longer an option, it has become a necessity. Business and leisure travelers no longer just want mobile technology to transform their travel experience, it is an expectation. "

- Marco Ciocchetti, CEO of XL Travel Group
