Throughout our isolation period, lockdowns and COVID-19, we have seen a surge in the rise of the cashless revolution. Is this revolution new? The answer is no. According to MINT, “Australia already ranked 10th in the global eCommerce market size in 2019. More and more Australians are looking to forgo the more traditional payments processes in favour of smartphone apps, eWallets and frictionless mobile platforms”.
Top 3 reasons travellers embrace the cashless revolution are simple:
- Contactless (which makes people feel safe)
- Confidence (trusting that the service provider upkeeps the privacy and data protection of the customer)
Pre-COVID 19, we were already seeing more travellers make most of their travel bookings before they set off. This trend will only continue to grow, and it will include travel experiences, transport and more.
The result? Travellers will take less cash on business or leisure trips.
