How is IoT Improving Travel and Tourism?

The Internet of Things has quietly revolutionised the way we travel- no longer do we have to worry about fumbling through paper maps or anxiously waiting when our luggage takes longer to come out onto the carousel than we expected. We’re now in the era of smart travel accessories that are able to blend technology with travel in a really seamless way, this makes our journeys so much more connected and hassle free than ever. Read on to find out about some of these revelations when it comes to travel.

Smart Luggage

Smart luggage is embedded with IoT wonders, and is changing the travel game. Integrated GPS trackers let you keep tabs on your suitcase’s location in real time so you dont need to stress about lost bags since you can track them right from your smartphone. Whether you’re using luggage storage and want to check that your bags are where you left them, or flying across the globe you know exactly where they are. Smart suitcases often come equipped with a range of features, on great one is built in scales (so you never exceed those pesky airline weight limits!)

Smart Locks

With IoT-powered locks, you can forget about the anxiety of things like misplaced keys or forgotten combinations. Instead, just use your smartphone to secure and access your belongings instead. Some smart locks offer advanced security features too like tamper alerts and real time monitoring so you can receive a notification on your phone if someone tries to mess with your luggage. Perfect for peace of mind and security.


Wearable devices that are designed have gained massively popularity, from smartwatches to fitness trackers. However these wearables arent just useful for health but offer features like navigation assistance, language translation and more so are perfect for your travels. You could be strolling through the streets of a foreign city, and your wrist gently vibrates to guide you to the nearest must see attraction allowing you to get the most out of your time there!


As the we all embrace the importance of sustainability more and more, IoT is playing its part in the travel industry. Smart technology is being used to create eco-friendly travel solutions- hotels are implementing smart energy management systems so that lights and appliances only operate when needed. In transportation, IoT plays a key role in optimising routes and reducing fuel consumption. Smart navigation systems help drivers avoid traffic congestion, leading to smoother journeys and less environmental impact.

Smart Transportation

Speaking of transportation, the IoT is reshaping how we move from one place to another. Connected vehicles, equipped with sensors and communication technologies are all creating a safer and more efficient travel environment. Cars “talk” to each other, sharing information about road conditions, potential hazards and traffic patterns. This can all help to contribute to the overall safety of the road, minimising accidents and creating a more predictable commuting experience. Public transportation is also getting a tech upgrade, with IoT-enabled systems ensuring timely arrivals and departures. The days of waiting endlessly for a bus or train are fading away, replaced by a more efficient and connected urban landscape.

Smart Cities and Tourism

Smart cities that are powered by IoT are making this a reality. There’s everything from intelligent street lights that adjust brightness based on pedestrian activity to interactive kiosks that can provide rea -time information to tourists. These cities are designed to enhance your travel experience.

Personalised Travel Experiences

The beauty of IoT really comes down to its ability to tailor experiences to individual preferences. Smart travel platforms use data to understand your preferences and offer you personalised recommendations, like suggesting local eateries based on your taste preferences to providing real-time updates on your favourite attractions. IoT is putting the power of personalisation in the hands of travellers and that can only make things smoother, safer and all round better for us all.
