Innovation, not Imitation
We live in increasingly complex times. People's needs are becoming more individual and differentiated, making it harder to lump them together into simple trends. As one of the leading travel companies, we have to penetrate deeper into the zeitgeist of the 21st century, continuously developing new concepts so that our travel offerings meet the needs of even the most demanding traveller.
The customer, together with his or her very own longings and needs, has become the central focus of all our efforts.
A lot of people at Kuoni are working to gain a better understanding of the wishes, expectations and longings of the 21st century traveller. The insights they come up with help our experts develop innovative products, new types of advisory tools and specially adapted forms of communication for their particular areas of business.
MAPPING THE PLACE OF LONGING
Based on its extensive research, Kuoni has categorized people's longings into different segments. The identified segments are materializing through an intuitive mix of words and images in our overall marketing communication. This mix is based on a comprehensive workbook called “Coast of me — Mapping the Place of Longing.”, which has been developed as a tool for more effective, needs-oriented communication that takes into account the individualization of our customer needs.

A NEW ADVISORY CULTURE
Taking this a step further, Kuoni also revolutionised the way in which our travel consultants communicate face-to-face with customers. The Travel Compass is an extremely efficient advisory tool, developed using the principles of Kuoni’s segmentation and the latest insights into the psychology of decision-making. The Travel Compass, which provides specific, highly customised advice, offers customers added value that they will not find with other tour operators, let alone on the internet.
