A recent Travel Weekly article suggested that travel suppliers could productively use customers’ personal wealth data to ‘price dynamically’.

The online travel industry is thriving. According to eMarketer, in 2016 online sales cumulatively generated $565 billion, and that number is projected to swell to around $820 billion by 2020.

Has the shine begun to come off tech as far as travel is concerned? You have to think so if the dusty reception given by cities to the latest - fleets of motorised scooters - is anything to go by.
