Following the launch of the “Travel In” initiative in June, the company introduced various steps and innovations to revitalize the trip, including the all-new “Trip.com LIVE” series of live streaming at the destination. Involving audiences in various locales every week, this campaign offers users significant discounts for flexible advance booking vouchers for premium accommodation that has enjoyed extensive success.

Each one-hour session generates more than USD 100,000 in sales, while one session in Japan alone generates more than USD 600,000 orders are made.
“Conceived at the height of the pandemic, when travelers are locked up in their own homes, as a way to experience their preferred destination and start thinking about their next trip, Trip.com LIVE has evolved from a regional experiment into an international success, and although international travel cannot be carried out again in the near future, we believe that because it is safe and practical to travel again, innovations like this create exciting opportunities for the future of travel, “said Sun.
With short-haul trips in the Asia-Pacific showing indications of recovery, destinations and governments around the world are moving towards a gradual opening of the journey, starting with domestic tourism. Recently, the British and Italian governments have expressed interest in working more closely with Trip.com Group to revitalize travel.
