What is Smart Tourism?

Smart Tourism (or e-Tourism) is when all you need to travel, including preparation, is connection to the internet, be that PC, laptop, or smartphone.

Smart tourism is simply the process of getting touristic services through the internet, on any language, in any part of the world. The aim of the touristic organizations becomes to make their services accessible and easy to use.

How to prepare a journey without going out of your house?

Nowadays, you can find and buy tickets anywhere: for the flight, to visit museum or any event, book a hotel you like.

Of course, there are plenty of organizations offering such services. However, our website puts together the recommended partners, checked to be trusted leaders of their areas of specialty and recognized to be the most reliable providers of their services.

Insurance

We do not recommend anyone to go for a travel without an insurance. Anything can happen during your trip. Almost all insurance companies have websites, easy to use, where you can buy your travel insurance. Simply search on the internet and you will easily find one that suits you.

Visa

It is common that you require visa to visit many countries. This sometimes scares potential travelers. However, internet makes it easy once again. Embassies of all countries provide all information required for their visa online, including rules and application forms. Just find the embassy website and you will be able to fill in the form online and to book an appointment for formal visa application. Some countries even approve visas online.

How to manage a good trip without guides, translators and maps?

During your travel, you can easily cope without guide, translator or a map, just by using your smartphone instead. To do this you just need to download three free applications on your smartphone.

There is a countless number of applications for travelling, but we recommend the ones that are tested by millions of tourists, trusted around the world, free and, very importantly, are able to work without connection to the Internet.

To download for IOS platform – Apple iPhone – use Appstore.

To download for other smartphones on Android – use Google play.

 

Advice note: To download these applications, open this webpage on your smartphone. Scan QR-code on the left using your smartphone or just type “centersmarttourism.com” in the search box on your phone.

Your personal guide “izi.TRAVEL”

Izi.TRAVEL transforms smartphone in audio-guide or robot-guide that works in many cities and museums around the world, telling you stories about attractions and exhibits on your language. You can easily find direction with built-in electronic map.

Personal map “Google maps”

Google maps displays electronic map on your smartphone, which fully substitutes paper map. It is much easier to use as it shows your current location, rating of chosen objects and reviews from other people. It also displays the quickest directions and, sometimes, even advises you on the traffic and gives different public transport options. It allows you to save places by their name or address. If you wish, you can also use it to track your path, recording all your movement. 

Universal translator “Google Translate”

Google Translate replaces paper dictionaries and translators. It operates in almost all languages in the world. For some languages, it has a feature of verbal translation and translation from images. For convenience, we also recommend you to learn 10-20 words of the language you might need in the country of destination.
