Camino is made for travel

An open field of opportunities powered by blockchain

Camino, the operating system for the global travel industry

Camino will form the new operating system of the global travel industry, allowing all participants in the space, from airlines and hotels to rental car companies and tour operators, to interact with one another efficiently, reliably, and transparently.

Many travel players are already developing their first use cases based on camino technology, which represent real added value.

Use cases on Camino

Trading

Trading can be done in various directions: B2B, B2B2C, C2C, and B2C. Blockchain enables automation, cost-efficiency, and flexibility in today's rigid trading process.

Payment & settlement

B2B/ B2C settlement in travel is complex, time-consuming, and costly. Settlement and payment applications in the Camino Network will streamline travel services' booking and paying process and enable worldwide peer-to-peer transactions with extremely fast reconciliation and much lower transaction costs.

Token rewards

Token rewards (fungible and non-fungible tokens) are there to incentivize people using various services on the blockchain, such as bookings, reviews, referrals, sharing data, or other incentives.

Token gated access

With an NFT, a unique digital asset, access to events or services can be granted as a utility to the NFTs. Moreover, users can be tracked where they get access and to what time.

Contracting / purchasing

With the help of web3 technology, such as smart contracts, the automation and security along the contracting/ purchasing process can be enhanced.

Information services

Blockchain enables traceable information and rewardable reviews. Also, travelers can send their information to a specific wallet, allowing them to review, for example, a particular hotel room.

Tracking

Using blockchain for tracking means having one single source of truth. This opens up new potentials when it comes to tracking of lost baggages or visitor streams.

Locking systems

Locking systems can become more efficient and save. A physical key could become a thing of the past.

Wallet rates / Personalized offers

Wallet rates use cases will enable personalization of offers with direct rates from the business/service provider.

Hotel / roomtype mapping

Non-bookable content, such as reviews and information on the room amenities or view, is essential for the booking decision. This use case provides high personalization of room offers or extra specific room types by allocating a wallet to each room in a hotel.

Voucher

Vouchers can easily be added by businesses and redeemed by the user. The setup is simple, just like the implementation in current business models.

Climate compensation

Blockchain helps monitor and report emission reduction trading due to its inherent immutability and transparency characteristics.

Disaster information

Companies can demonstrate their concern for the safety and well-being of their customers by providing up-to-date information on blockchain technology. Thus the company becomes a trusted resource, letting the customers make informed travel decisions.

Gamification

Camino offers various possibilities to indulge in gamification of travel services.

Interlining

The sale process and customer experience can get more straightforward and enjoyable on Camino as all players are connected.

Reviews

Web3 technology enables the customer to actually own and control the created review. The customer could get rewarded for a shared review, and fake reviews could be eliminated.

Loyalty

The Camino blockchain offers the possibility for an application to effortlessly build a global or regional loyalty platform to welcome participation across different brands, all in the same network.

Digital collectibles

Travelers love collecting things from their trip, such as souvenirs and proof of travel. Therefore, a use case of digital collectibles is very interesting for additional income streams and customer loyalty. It can be adopted in variations.

User generated content

Users can generate content for various services or products on the blockchain and, at the same time, get rewarded. Once a wallet is created for a service, users can send information to this wallet and are incentivized to do so.

Reduction of API’s

The offering and exchange of information get much more accessible, inexpensive, and safer due to the reduced APIs via blockchain.

Travel identity

Self-sovereign-identity will enable travelers to manage and secure their personal shared information, leading to increased economic efficiency and higher protection of personal privacy.

Automated complaint management

Complaint management could be connected to automatization and even compensation on another level.

Insurance policies

The existing trust gap between insurance providers and policyholders can get eliminated by automating all processes and trusting the decentralized network. It improves operational efficiency and also enhances the customer experience.

Use cases for travel

Hotel content in web3

What sounds unimaginable today could become a reality powered by blockchain very soon: Complete and easily accessible hotel information. This will be possible by creating unique hotel wallets on Camino that are easily accessible with a simple API connection and entail all the hotel's content.

Use cases for travel

Loyalty programs on Camino

Customer loyalty programs spread rapidly across many industries. The result is a maze of point systems and redemption options, as well as complicated processes involving the exchange of points between program partners. Customer loyalty programs are ripe for innovation that will simplify their use. One solution offers blockchain.

What industry players have to say

Blockchains have enormous potential to materially change our business model by making transactions along the value chain more secure, efficient and traceable. Camino, as the first blockchain platform for travel, offers vast possibilities to enhance processes, products and services in the travel industry. Eurowings will be one of the first movers, currently exploring first use cases in inflight shopping, customer loyalty, digital marketing and sales together with our partners Chain4Travel and Peakwork.

Leading the field in digital crisis communication whilst streamlining and structuring the flow of information between source and the travelling customer. Our task at A3M is to provide the travelling public with punctual, accurate, in- depth and time critical information and this at a very high frequency. A task we are mastering daily in close cooperation with our tour operators, travel retailers, OBEs and corporate customers. Today's solutions are however limited, both technically and economically posing challenges to serve customer demands going forward. This is one reason why blockchain is so important for A3M`s future business model.

We are also evolving our digital footprint towards new ways our guests will consume and experience our products and services, even in the meta space.
