Additionally, the widespread adoption of advanced technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and virtual reality (VR), to automate the process has facilitated smooth operations for both travelers and travel operators. Along with this, the escalating demand for enhanced, efficient, and personalized customer experiences has propelled the market growth.
