Speed: Technology has improved the speed and engine performance of vehicles. This change has happened right from bikes to flights. The vehicles are made safer using technology. Technology has helped vehicles to understand the immensity of crashes so that safety systems are enabled automatically to protect the travelers.
Reservation: In yesteryears, people feared traveling due to the lengthy reservation queues. Technology has now given us facility for booking and cancellation of tickets online. We can even select the seat and meal for the travel. We can make payment using secured modes like credit cards, internet banking, and mobile banking. During the transit, we can get quality entertainment in the form of movies and music. Also, currency while traveling across countries is not an issue because of online transfers. Your banker takes care of the payment.
Luggage reduced: Since entertainment is available outside, we need not carry those gadgets. Similarly, a hard copy of a few documents like a ticket, the boarding pass is not needed. We can learn about what will be available in places and their quality through online reviews and product ratings. Sites like BestBudget help a lot in this regard. So, there is no need to carry everything fearing non-availability in the destination city. Hence luggage is reduced due to technology.
GPS: GPS has enabled finding routes without asking anyone’s help. One can easily drive even in a new place without any problem. Also, time is not wasted in searching routes or by reaching the wrong place. Imagine how difficult it would be if one finds out at the last minute that he has traveled the opposite direction. People need not miss important meetings and can be sure that they land within time with the help of technology.
Facilities during travel: Using internet one can stay connected during travel and communicate. Also, translation apps remove the language barrier.
