The Online Travel Industry: The 4 Business Models

The Internet offers an effective means for developing a single and sustainable electronic infrastructure for information gathering and business transactions for both travellers and suppliers. It is an ideal method for people to source information on travel. It is an essential for travel-related Websites to offer useful, pertinent and easy-to-find information alongside a booking facility if appropriate.

It can be used to fully research a destination, book all aspects of the holiday including travel and communicate others who have the same ideas or have been through similar experiences. It gives travellers an excellent opportunity to compare and contrast everything on offer before they make a purchase.

The information available online is continually being reformatted and presented in a more logical, easy-to-use and read format. The volume of consumers that rely on this information to make travel-related decisions will therefore continue to rise. In addition, features and benefits of using the Internet to research and book holidays are improving and being added to all the time. For example, consumers no longer have to receive printed tickets from the travel operator. They simply print out any information that they require themselves after they receive it automatically via email.

The ‘Net’ has meant that people can now easily plan trips for themselves. This has not only opened up a greater amount of discounts available to the general public, but also given people the fun and enjoyment of planning and booking their own trips.

Prior to the Internet, travel agents were the primary source of information and facilitating bookings within the travel industry. However, the onset of Net popularity has seriously impacted upon the future success of a telephone or face-to-face based travel agency. The Internet now allows individuals the ability to plan and book their own trips. It has revolutionised the travel industry as a whole and instigated a trend away from the customer using a travel agent.

There are four Internet business models that can be applied to the travel industry. The business models and examples of businesses within them are as follows:

1) The merchant model, which brings buyers and sellers together. It could be argued that this model is effectively an online travel agent. Websites in this business model category include Travelocity who have recently purchased LastMinute.com and Expedia – an offshoot from Microsoft.

2) The advertising model, providing valuable travel information whilst generating revenue through various adverts. The significant advantage of this model is its low cost base. A website in this business model that provides information on the UK is TREKtheUK.com.

3) The direct model allows the service provider themselves to deal directly with the general public. First of all, British Airways is the longest established and has a large marketshare and conventional competitive advantage. Secondly, EasyJet have established the Internet as being key to their core competency.

4) The community model is one of the longest established operating models on the Internet without having a history of generating a significant revenue stream. Two websites reviewed that fall into this category are Lonely Planet – based upon the books that have been published for more than thirty years, and VirtualTourist.com – a community of individuals who have a passion for travel.

Although it can be argued that some websites are using a mixture of several business models, it is interesting to acknowledge that just because a business generates the majority of its revenue online, it doesn’t mean that conventional business models can’t be applied to them.

How to Find a Secure Travel Wallet

Stop and think for a moment about how many items you have in your wallet right now. If you’re like most men, you’re carrying your Driver’s License, IDs for clubs or memberships, three or four credit cards, cash and coins. In addition, you’re probably carrying your iPhone, Blackberry or Android device. These items are multiplied if you’re traveling long distance. You’ve got passports, airline tickets, traveler checks and other additional items that are essential to traveling.

In most situations, you’ve got everything spread all over your person. Wallet in one pocket, cell phone in another, and travel documents in your carryon bag. The more places you have things, the more likely it is for you to lose something or be subject to theft. Rather than putting yourself at risk or fumbling for your things, look for a secure travel wallet.

Finding a Secure Travel Wallet

Travel wallets keep you secure and help you travel with your mind at ease. Travel wallets differ from normal wallets with their emphasis on storage and security. Unlike a typical money clip or small wallet, wallets for travel can hold everything that you’ll need in order to travel securely.

Wallets for travel can keep your cards, your cash, your traveler’s checks, your ID, your travel documents AND your smartphone in one location. Most importantly, if you can find a front pocket wallet, you’ll be able to store everything in your front pocket and away from theft.

Different Kinds of Travel Wallets

There are two main varieties of secure travel wallets that you can choose from. Both offer the convenience of having everything at your immediate reach when you are traveling. Both have the ability to carry everything you’ll need – from your smartphone, your credit cards, your cash and your coins.

1) Front Pocket Wallets – The first option is a front pocket wallet. A front pocket wallet is a secure travel wallet that has room for everything. It combines the convenience of a high quality wallet with the security of front pocket placement. There’s no safer place to carry your items than in your front pocket. If you decide this is the type of travel wallet for you, it’s important to find one that has room for everything that you’ll need while you’re traveling.

2) Travel Shoulder Holster – The second option is a travel shoulder holster. Like a front pocket wallet, a travel shoulder holster can hold all of the items that you need. The main difference is in carrying the wallet. Travel shoulder holsters sit on your shoulder, as the name implies and the wallet part of the holster is keep safely under your arm. They can carry your things under your jacket or other outwear so that it’s possible to keep everything safe. In addition, you can find models that have a hidden passport pocket to keep this valuable document safe and secure.

Having a secure travel wallet can be just the thing that you need to travel safely. Whether you select a front pocket wallet or a secure shoulder holster for your gear, you can be sure that you’re able to travel with ease.

Champions Online Travel Power Guide

Champions Online does not include mounts like many other MMOs, it does however include a large variety of travel powers, allowing you to get around in a way fitting to your hero. Nearly any concept can have an appropriate travel power, and Cryptic has been adding new skins for travel powers every once in a while, enabling for more specific concepts to have a better matching way to get around.

This article will only be discussing the travel powers themselves and not the Advantages that can be accessed for some of them by spending Advantage Points.

At level 5 you can choose your first travel power, with a second being available at level 35. When it comes to getting around the various zones in CO, having a way to travel through the air is much more convenient than being stuck on the ground. Since you can get 2 travel powers I would recommend at least one that lets you travel through the air, even if it doesn’t fit your character’s concept. It’s not necessary to do so, but it’ll make it easier to travel through certain areas, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the various zones.

With the exception of Teleportation and Tunneling, all travel powers have multiple stages resulting in various speeds. In combat or without charging is the slowest and gradually building up to the 3rd and fastest stage, which can be accessed by fully charging the travel power. Jet Boots are the exception to this as it uses 3 stages but can not be charged.

All travel powers that have a graphical effect to them can be colored to some extent by gold members. Silver members are stuck with the default look.

Flight/Fire Flight/Rainbow Flight – Probably the most iconic super hero way to travel as many classic comic characters can fly and is an easy way of seeing someone who has super human abilities. in CO flight offers great maneuverability and moderate speed. Flight has no real noticeable graphic, but many types of wings will flap or glide while flying.

Fire Flight is the exact same as flight, except your character is on fire.

Rainbow Flight is an exact copy of flight, except your character leaves a rainbow trail while flying and has a multicolor glow at their feet.

Superspeed/Light Speed – Superspeed is the fastest base travel power. It mainly enhances run speed, but provides a bit of extra jump height and makes it harder for enemies to notice you, which is handy as you’ll likely be passing by enemies fairly regularly as you travel. While you have to go around buildings and other obstacles, the speed of it generally makes up for it if you know your way around.

Light Speed is an exact copy of superspeed, except your character leaves a Tron-like light trail behind them.

Teleportation – Teleportation is one of the more unique travel powers and also one of the most active ones. Unlike the other travel powers, teleportation can’t remain active, but rather by activating it you get a short period of time where you get a very maneuverable flight as well as gaining stealth. After teleportation ends you remain stealthed a few seconds and slowly fall towards the ground and can choose to reactivate teleportation right away if desired. Traveling long distances requires hitting teleportation each time it fades, so is more involved than other travel powers for traveling. If you enter combat shortly after using teleportation, you get a 10 second cool down before being able to teleport again.

Teleportation is currently bugged and will not always grant slow fall when you exit a teleport. This can cause you to take fall damage if your character hits the ground before teleporting again.

Superjump/Rocket Jump – Superjump gives your character the ability to jump really high and fast. Superjump offers a good in between for characters who don’t want fly but don’t want to be stuck on the ground either. Generally it’s fairly safe as even if you land near a ground of enemies, they’ll rarely get a chance to react before you’re out of distance, but it does occasionally happen that one or more enemies will hit you. You have to hit your jump key in between each jump, so it’s a bit more involved than most other travel powers. It’s also a bit more difficult to use indoors as there isn’t much room to jump in some places and there may be objects such as pipes that you can run into, slowing you down.

Rocket Jump is exactly the same as superjump, except your character is propelled by rockets on their feet.

Acrobatics – Acrobatics is a run and jump increasing travel power, where both fall in between superspeed and superjump. At rank 1 it’s probably the most difficult to travel with power as it’s not too fast and you can’t jump high enough to get over medium size obstacles. It also doesn’t grant any stealth like superspeed does, so you’re more likely to take damage while traveling. At higher ranks it works a lot better for traveling, but still remains kind of weak compared to other alternatives. It is one of the best to use in combat for increased maneuverability.

Tunneling – Tunneling causes your character to go underground and move at an increased speed. It can allow you to pass by enemies without them noticing you, but you will continue to take damage from DoTs or attacks that were incoming even after you’re underground. Tunneling can not travel pass obstacles in the ground, no matter how small. This makes it fairly difficult to use and really only worth taking if it fits your character. Despite your character being underground you still have to maneuver around all obstacles, even small ones that can normally be run past or require a tiny hop to get over. It’s not very fast either and takes a few seconds when activating or deactivating the power.

Swinging – Swinging is another fairly active travel power. Once activated, your first jump will send you high into the air and pressing and holding jump after that will cause your character to grapple into the air and swing forward. If held your character will continue to swing back and forth and if jump is released your character will release their grapple and go in whichever direction they were swinging at the time. This allows you to adjust your height and speed depending on when you release. If going for speed it is fairly fast, but does requiring timing your jumps properly. It does not require anything to grapple onto, you automatically grapple even the air and can essentially fly with it. It’s very limited use indoors as you don’t have much room for swinging and can easily run into objects.

Hover Disk/Earth Flight/Rainbow Flight: Cloud – These powers give you a less maneuverable version of flight, but give your character an object to stand on. The object is just for show and serves no special person beyond it’s look.

Hover Disk gives you a sci-fi/tech style disk to stand on. It also has the benefit of being slightly faster than flight and the other two powers, although I believe it is slightly less maneuverable.

Earth Flight gives you a piece of earth to stand on, which varies in appearance some depending on where you use it. If you’re in the air when earth flight activates you get a cloud instead.

Rainbow Flight: Cloud gives you a cloud fairly similar to using Earth Flight in the air, except it’ll always give the cloud and the cloud has a rainbow trail similar to rainbow flight.

Ice Slide – Ice Slide is probably the most advanced travel power to get good use out of. When using it your character stands on a piece of ice and leaves an ice/water type trail behind them. It’s base speed is similar to hover disk, however, it is capable of being the fastest travel power if used properly. Also, unlike other flight powers, ice slide will slowly fall to the ground if you’re not moving up. Traveling up slows your speed a bit, but traveling down increases your speed. With the proper technique you can get great speeds with it.

Travel Insurance – Avoid Becoming a Statistic

We have all seen and read media reports and statistics about the perils of not taking out travel insurance. There is certainly plenty of information on the internet for travellers regarding the importance of insurance. Despite this, however, recent research by the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) indicates that one in five British travellers still neglect to take out travel insurance for their trips and holidays.

The British Foreign Office and their ‘Know Before You Go’ service provides excellent and free travel advice and country information to assist travellers before they set off. They also warn of the potentially dire financial consequences for those who risk setting off without travel insurance.

It appears that despite all the warnings many holidaymakers are still either unaware of the risk they are taking, or prepared to take a chance. This is a case of false economy as the cost of travel insurance is very cheap compared to the bills that could mount up over problems that arise while travelling overseas.

The ABTA research has shown that younger travellers, mainly the 15-24 age group, are the most uninformed as they believe that if anything bad happens to them while abroad the government will pick up the cost and take care of it for them. This could not be further from the truth. Many young travellers go abroad with friends, or on adventure holidays, or for Hen or Stag parties so are at particular risk. However, it is important to remember that if intoxication or rowdy behaviour result in injury, fines, or arrest your consulate or embassy cannot pay the bills for you or secure your release.

The sad reality for the families or parents of young travellers who get into trouble abroad is that they are going to receive a desperate telephone call for help and will have no option but to come up with the needed funds. The British Embassy or Consulate will go as far as making calls and contacting friends and relatives for them and advise on the transfer of funds, but that is about the extent of their assistance. The government does not cover payments for hospital treatment, nor does it pay to fly anyone home (repatriate them) or provide funds if they run out of money, get arrested, or have all their money and possessions stolen.

If a traveller is seriously injured or ill and needs to be flown home by air ambulance the costs are truly frightening – running into thousands of pounds for those who do not have adequate travel insurance.

Single Trip travel insurance can be surprisingly cheap, and even the minimum amount of cover it provides can be vital. For young travellers Backpacker policies are very affordable and still provide the necessary cover for medical treatment, liability and legal expenses. There are, of course, terms and conditions as with any type of insurance and policies differ from company to company so it is important to check. Having that insurance policy tucked in your pocket or hand luggage is not a license to act irresponsibly, or put yourself in harm’s way. It is unlikely to cover incidents that are found to be related to the excessive consumption of alcohol or drug use.

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) provides a level of cover for emergency medical treatment in participating member countries, and it is important to carry this (free) card, along with comprehensive travel insurance – but never instead of insurance. The EHIC does not cover anything much other than emergency medical expenses, and does not cover non-urgent or follow-up care. It also does not cover the cost of medical repatriation by air ambulance, if this should become necessary.

Repatriation costs can amount to as much as £45,000 from the East Coast of the USA, up to £16,000 from destinations like Tenerife, and up to £20,000 from destinations ‘down under’. Consider whether you have that sort of disposable money lying around? Most people do not!

Imagine suddenly finding yourself responsible for debt of this kind, either for yourself or for a travelling dependent. In these harsh economical times unexpected expenses of this kind would be totally devastating. Why take such a risk?

For the relatively small cost of insurance you are purchasing peace of mind and, with any luck, you may never need to use it. Consider that most travel insurance will cover costs for common and expensive travel mishaps, including:

Emergency medical treatment for injury or illness
Repatriation by air ambulance
Lost luggage or stolen money, credit cards and possessions
Personal liability (in case of a lawsuit for damage to property or persons)
Cover for Legal Expenses
Cancellation of your trip (for covered reasons)
Curtailment of your trip (cutting short your trip)
Scheduled Airline failure
Personal accident cover for death or disability
It is all too easy to spend a lot of time surfing the internet looking for cheap holidays or travel deals, but forget that it is equally important to take time to purchase travel insurance, and to check what it does and does not include. If unsure, always call and ask – don’t leave it to chance.

If you are not sure whether you might decide to go river rafting, bungee jumping or skiing on your holiday it is important to ensure that you will be covered for these activities and, if necessary, purchase additional cover.

Avoid being tempted to opt for the cheapest policy that you find on a comparison site. Take the time to check that you are getting adequate levels of cover for your money and that all your planned activities are covered. A very cheap policy may have cut the levels of cover where you most need it, or raised ‘excess’ levels (the amount that you contribute towards a claim) in order to tempt you with a cheap quote.

If you plan to make more than one trip in a year it is sensible to save money by opting for the Annual Multi-trip policy as this will work out cheaper in the long run.

6 Ways to Clean Up Your Budget

I was recently going over my family’s finances and was shocked at how much I didn’t really know we were spending on frivolous things. But let me back up a bit… Actually, the idea of downsizing and cleaning up came to me while watching a show on TV last night about tiny houses. (Have you heard about these? I’m fascinated!) Anyway, I got to thinking about how much stuff our family has accumulated over the last four years, living in our 3-bedroom ranch. Keep in mind that our house isn’t a very large house at all compared to the average size. (2679 square feet!) Yet we still have managed to fill it with things and stuff over the last few years… and it’s getting to be a little, uh, cramped. I also want to point out that our house is PLENTY big enough for all of us and we don’t need a bigger home. But we DO need to go through each room and methodically clean up and clean out. Which brings me to our finances; How did we come to purchase all of this STUFF anyway?!

Quite honestly, I’ve been scratching my head for some time now wondering where our money goes… here and there and everywhere it seems. And when we really need something, often we are finding that our hands are tied and we need to use the credit card. My husband and I bring in enough money monthly that we should be able to save, theoretically. Unfortunately, we don’t have much savings at this point and it is time to get a serious handle on our financial past and present so we can secure a better financial future. So here are six very doable ways that I’ve come up with–OK, so these aren’t NEW ideas at all here. I’ve just done the reading and research. Let it be known that I’m definitely not a professional or a financial expert. Please keep that in mind as you read on.

Clean up and clean out our house this fall and have a yard//garage sale. This is going to be a LOT of work, but in the end, we will have extra space AND some extra cash to put toward bills or savings.

Pay bills second, pay ourselves first. This means taking the 30 seconds to log in to the bank account and throw in some extra cash into the savings account. This is like, rule #1 of saving. Rule #2 is “Don’t touch your savings unless it’s an emergency, and even then, reconsider it!” Haha. Okay maybe not, but clearly for us financial discipline is lacking.

Create a daily spending limit and stick to it. That’s right. Daily. Because sometimes, those of us who aren’t so good with budgeting, need serious boundaries. This way, we can really look at “What am I spending my money on? Is this a necessity, a treat, or should I//do I need to save my daily allowance for something in a few days?”

Commit to paying down debt. There are a few ways to do this effectively, but, as I’ve been reading, the simplest is to take it in small chunks and pay off the smallest one first. Then tackle the next smallest, and so on. This is a great way to see progress! (And I like to see progress sooner than later!) There is a school of thought–and a wise one at that–that says pay off the debt with the highest interest rate. This is a really good idea too.

Focus on needs instead of wants… for now. I think we have to look closely what we want to spend our money on… for me, I like getting my nails done. I also like buying clothes for myself and my family. But right now these things need to be put on hold. We have more than enough, and frankly–even though I loathe it–I can do my own nails for a little while. I don’t want to deprive anyone, but I think it is a valid exercise to simplify life a bit; get creative with what we have, use what we have, and then, after a period of two or three months, see where our financial priorities are.

Choose DIY over convenience. This sort of goes hand-in-hand with #5, but I think it’s worth mentioning on its own. It takes five more minutes each morning to make your own cup of coffee rather than shelling out $2.00 for it everyday. ($2.00 x 7 = $14.00 a week! That’s $56 a month!) It takes 10 minutes to pack a lunch at home. See where I’m going here? Time and money are definitely precious commodities, but again, if you’re on a budget, it’s time (no pun intended) to consider what is worth our time versus what is worth our hard-earned money. 10 minutes for a healthier lunch packed at home means more to me than ordering a quick lunch in the cafeteria and not really knowing where the food actually came from.

Buying and Selling Mortgage Notes

It might be common nowadays to see a sign that reads “mortgage notes for sale,” but since this is about money and business, things could get tricky. Here is a guide meant to help each individual in choosing the right mortgage note and how to wisely purchase notes for sale.

A mortgage note is proof that there was a debt made for a piece of land or property. When a person puts his property for mortgage, it’s like saying that if he is unable to pay, then the property will be the one to repay the fee or cost that the debtor was unable to pay for. Some people sell their mortgaged land or property and are called mortgage notes.

First, contact a mortgage broker. They can be found online, in newspaper ads, or in the local phone directory. It might also be helpful to ask friends and colleagues for referral as trust is already built in. The mortgage broker’s job is somewhat like a matchmaker as his role is to find which note best suits the client.

It is good practice to carefully go through the mortgage note with the broker. Since it will come with some terms, it is best to ask the broker what they mean and how to go about the investment. The broker is supposed to discuss the investment opportunities and the rate of interest as a return on the investment. It would also be helpful to contact the bank or firm which processed the note for better understanding and practical advice.

When buying a mortgage note, a promissory note is required. This formalizes the agreement and makes it bound to legal terms, which is safer since the former owner will have to pay the new lender (the one buying the note) a certain amount of money. The promissory note should also include all the terms and agreements that are written on the note.

When buying these kind of notes, a third and unbiased party is usually involved and that person is in charge of creating an escrow account. A note broker or real estate broker is someone who is authorized to create an escrow account and manage the funds of the mortgage note.

Once bought, the buyer must deposit the funds into the escrow account and the person that’s managing the account will be responsible for the disbursement of the money to the one who sold it.

The new owner of the mortgage note should then receive monthly payments as he now owns the property. Again, the money should be paid to the escrow account and in the same way, the manager of the account will be the one to disburse the funds.

An establishment that gets access to a credit card machine will enjoy countless benefits. Listed the benefits; so, don’t miss the following:

Obtain Legal Recognition for Your Company:

Accepting card payments using digital payment terminals is a legitimate business practice, so it should help your company a lot.

Increase Your Profitability:

To accept various forms of payment, like credit cards, Google Pay, Apple Pay, and more, use a credit card machine at your business. Creating a positive impression on your customers is quite simple, but it also keeps your customers loyal. A credit card machine, thus granting flexibility in the ecosystem of online payment, provides customers with many payment options, thus allowing them to pay bills in various ways.

How to stay ahead of the competition:

Many businessmen have not yet fully embraced digital equipment, making small-business models in the early stages of transition. To accept online payments, your business equipment must be upgraded. If customers are no longer carrying cash, you can outpace your competitors. Research has shown that when customers use their cards to make a purchase, they spend more. Additionally, because you will make a substantial profit from accepting card payments, it’s highly recommended that you do so.
